BigBeefer and all :)

Could a Search for a Coordinate set (x, y) be added to the Map Tools on the Starmap?

I for one would certainly appreciate such a tool :)

I don't use ANY plug-ins, as I am using Internet Explorer 11.

---

As it does NOT seem that BigBeefer reach directly to many of the Suggestions;

albeit it seems, that he may take notice of some suggestions and implement his solutions relating to some of these suggestions;

then could a Separate 'Desired Minor Improvements (and Fixes)' additional Topic Tab be added,

that in addition to its normal Forum functions, would also be relayed directly to BigBeefer?

Provided that people respect the difference between

General Suggestions (that could be a major maybe even disputed changes to the game)

and 'Desired Minor Improvements (and Fixes)',

that is intended to simply improve playability and fix,

what possibly without technically qualifying as per say Bug Fixes,

seems like bugs;

be that in the original game or in the implementation of already added tools for improved playability.

Again I for one would certainly appreciate such an additional topic tab :)

Hi and thank you glyn for responding :)

BUT to me those user polls, seems to me to sadly be where ANY idea goes to die :(

Whereas, IF one manages to get through to BigBeefer, then he actually may pick up and respond my implementing in some way or form the proposed idea :)

If you look through some of the user voices you will find that some of them are actioned on.

But then again some of them seem to be copies of others and some seem silly and never get killed off.

Also I find that very few of these forum discussions ever get a comment or Joshua or BB even if we get to 100's of comments with lots agreeing.

So its probably best to do both and link the uservoice to the initial forum post.

This covers both eventualities.

Hi and thank you martinr for responding :)

It seems to me, that we largely agree in our perceptions of the uservoices.

So your suggestion to link the uservoices to the initial forum posts, seems to me to be very good advice :)

Personally, I would like a feature to "bookmark" a particular point in space.
Often you find a point that is a "sweet spot", out of range of X, within range of a warp well, the correct distance from a minefield to sweep/scoop it, etc. Having to re-find it can be sorta annoying.

Also, if you have multiple ships following a route over several turns, you can just get them to follow these bookmarks.

If you are using the Map drawing plugin, you can add a point at any x,y with or without a note. The point shows up as a plus sign.

Works well.

Thank you psydev, singularity and glyn :)

Sadly I don't really understand installing the scripts, albeit I tried a couple of times.


I installed a Tamper monkey program, and then maybe subsequently tried to add too many plugins at once.


I would really love for somebody to make a consolidated selfinstalling essential Plugin pack :)

FYI, Uservoice Feedback is no longer available on the mobile interface. Given the lack of administrative activity, I suspect Uservoice may have outlasted its usefulness...
