Navigation screen

Not much happened this week, although I did make a functional navigation screen. Check it out.

That screen shows where your ship is and where all jump gates and cities are. I tried several dumb things first to get it working, and then I remembered TGB's ability to draw the same thing in a different window. I still kept some of the dumb stuff, like creating a new object for each thing to be displayed, since actual size on that map is really really small. So I scaled each object up about 10x.
