I cant vouch for anyone else but the one thing i just dont get on with is the star map, often its hard to orientate and work out whats where.
Its a light blue colour and quite opaque and I know alot of people have no trouble with it and whilst using mobiglass keep it just as it is....for on the go its fine.

But when you get into your ship you can have a monitor dedicated to it....HD resolution and highly detailed. Showing facts and pictures that you couldnt see on mobiglass.
Then you can set destination from there. Simple fix but would add something.

It might be in the pipeline or if theres a better way to use the map please tell me. Or tell me to shut up...😂

I've always thought a simple 2D map would suffice for viewing and selecting destinations in the system. Only when needing to get around a planet does the 3D aspect really come into play for me, otherwise it's a fight to orient the map how I need half the time. It's cool and all, but in my opinion not really a necessity when dealing with the longer range jumps.

You get used to it...what helped me a lot is that right-clicking twice will center it and zoom out so you can see the whole thing, then you can just zoom in using the scroll wheel or double click on stuff you want to look closer at.

There's a galactic encyclopedia in the works which should cover all your info needs.it will be accessible on the website and in-game too.
Tbh I would like to have a 2D overview map as well for setting routes, it would make "generic" travel between trading hubs and such much easier.

Playing last night and that tip about double right click helps so much, after "wear a condom" its the best tip ever😂
