Re: Mission ideas

Sorry, I was (not much) thinking out loud when I read somebody's comment about missions being all like: load/buy point A, go/kill/drop point B (maybe action on point C). What kind of missions (functions?) could be (relatively) easily developed, that are about "management/building" rather t...

Astronomy movies reviewed by astronauts

Sounds in space

I have just heard that sound does not propagate in void space. Maybe outside atmospheres we should not be able to hear enemy explosions and their weapons, but in general only the sounds produced within out ship. Anyway... here is a funny way to produce sounds for weapon :D https://www.itemfix.com/v?...

Feature request: Lights

Both in open space or in the canyon of a planet I had hard time approaching ships for rescue because of darkness. Of course we have instruments to go blind, but how about a switch for lighting the 50-100m ahead of the ship?

I just mentioned it as well in issue 5208

Re: Mission ideas - Start local business and be a space tycoon

If there is a planet good for mining, farming or production, how about having the possibility to establish a business? After settling a mine/farm/factory (accessible from nearby bases), it could be possible to: - market: set your prices (for once, instead of just buying and reselling) - input manage...

The newest message currently appears at the bottom of the list in CommsLog window, and when the list has already a certain amount of lines, it requires some extra clicks / mouse wheel to be read. How about having the last message immediately readable: - by showing it on top of the list, or - the lis...

Cargo run mission - Passive police? Call-for-help button?

I am on a Bluenose with a big cargo and the risk of piracy was forecast but safety assured by a police patrol. Well the police patrol is keeping at 15 km distance, shoots sometimes at the pirate ship, but is not really keeping engaged. Trying to get closer to the police, but they are fast and keepin...

Feature request: Turret weapon

I remember in Frontier there was a turret mount for weapons, on bigger and less agile ships.
I am thinking how it would make it easier to defend yourself on the Bluenose.

Feature request: show remaining time for missions in bulletin board

When fast forwarding to show up new missions, it is tricky to keep track on which ones can be still be completed on time. Together with the speed of your ship, it becomes very hard to wisely choose a new set of missions from the bulletin board list. I guess that a remaining time directly in the miss...
