Re: Unofficial Weekly Discussion #2: Player Roles

A command screen to bypass the "Z" one with the main orders would be more immersive as a proximity map/radar to select enemy ship or at least the list. The captain is the only one who need to do things not on screens but in his "Z" panel. From what I can tell (I'm an ignorant noob so I might well b...

Re: New AI override - Captain is sat on his chair

As I rather like to sit on the chair when we travel, this override if a fun way to do that and many other things. So when we emerge in a system I can leave the chair to evaluate the possibilities, process some scrap because this prevent EngiBot to jump. when I sit down after, it knows it can jump. ...

Re: Unofficial Weekly Discussion #2: Player Roles

I agree that the Captain should have some sort of "big screen" view of what's going on outside. It's impossible to make good tactical decisions without situational awareness and there's essentially zero of that right now that I can find. In general, I find the Captain's chair useless. All you can do...

Re: New AI override - Captain is sat on his chair

Jumping requires actions by 3 players: 1. Captain picks destination. 2. Pilot aims ship at the destination. There is a bot command for this. 3. Engineer hits the Jump button once the ship is lined up (assuming he's already charged the drive, which should always happen immediately after jumping). The...

Re: Tweaks to Long Range Comms Notifications

Thanks for looking into this. FWIW, I'm rather against having your reputation decline (at least significantly) for not accepting LRC missions. In all the games I've started so far as CU, the stolen medical supplies and lost colonist missions given by the NPCs in Outpost 448 are way off on the very e...

Re: Change Scanner Zoom Level?

Thanks. Is this mentioned in the manual somewhere? If not, you might want to add it.

Re: Scanner: Research Materials as a starting talent

I agree that something needs to be done to jumpstart research because so many important talents rely on it. However, because so many important talents rely on research, research should still require some work. How to balance that is a sticky issue. It seems to be right now that all research material...

Change Scanner Zoom Level?

I must be blind but I can't figure out how to change the zoom level on the hand-held scanner. How do you do that?

Thanks.

Tweaks to Long Range Comms Notifications

I suggest several tweaks to the notifications about long-range comms (LRC) missions: At present, when an LRC mission appears on the screen, you get the notification "Mission Accepted" even though you haven't even read the message yet, let alone interacted with it. This is very misleading. It would b...
