[##:##] Command : test <ITEM> <SECT> <NUMBER> <ROUTE|DESTINATION>
The test command lets you check the effect of a proposed move. This can be helpful when you're not sure whether you have enough mobility to reach a certain location or you wish to compare two possible routes for a move.
The test command has exactly the same arguments as the move command and acts almost the same. There are two important differences:
Nothing is actually moved and no mobility is used.
The move is tested for <NUMBER> <ITEM> irrespective of how much <ITEM> is actually in the sector. This is useful for testing a sector which will be used as a temporary stopover in a multi-step move to make sure the stuff won't get stranded there.
