Radar and Map need some love.
« on: April 08, 2014, 03:42:17 am »
Hi,

I don't know about you, but i find myself going from Radar to Map very often, to see how close am i from the jumpgate or the station. I suggest to add new icones on the edge of the radar, pointing to these locations even if out of range, like in many space games. Maybe with a better radar, or an upgrade with skill points, but at least, do something about it please.

Also, change the icones : squares for stations, lozenges for jumpgates.

And, add names overhead of jumpgates and stations, just like we can read the name overhead IA spaceships.

I feel like having all the icons visible would be crowded.  Perhaps just an arrow or icon for the currently-selected waypoint or target would be more appropriate?

Maybe yes. A waypoint would be a minimum to ease the navigation.

Fortunately, it's a much-requested feature, that they already intend on implementing.
