Goods price indicator

Yet another suggestion out of nowhere - (actually I posted it on the end of another thread but figured I'd make it a new topic here) Is this possible or indeed worth doing? :) I think it would be nice to have an OXP or version upgrade that shows (say by highlighting the value in a colour) when a pla...

Excellent addition, this! Also considering the market page - it would be nice to have an OXP or version upgrade that shows when a planets list of goods are either above or below the average price, so you can easily look down the list selling and buying a little quicker. I have to keep checking the r...

All good so far - except I just noticed on the local map the planet info is no longer available when you press 'i'.

Is this deliberate - as I was a fan of using it!

If you look on the local star map you'll see that stars are different sizes - small ones are much, much easier to scoop from. I suppose it's because you can get to the scoopable depth so much quicker (and out again) because it is smaller. :D

Re: Ship info missing

I am in Galaxy 3 Ceanbibi, just did a monstrous Gems run, ~10760grams, and came upon this beautiful yellow / grey / black ship in the yard called "(null)". Sure it's cargo is 0 and it's speed is 0.000 LS, but I still wanted to take it out for a spin. I bought it, fitted it out and launched. When I ...

Thinking about this, would it be possible to disable instant docking if under attack (condition red)? Yes I agree with this too. I'm guilty of continuously using the instant docking - but as a laziness/time saver option rather than to avoid a fight, so I'd have no problems with this being implement...

Q mines explosions appear as a rapidly growing blue sphere(s) so there shouldn't be too much problem identifying them!

Detecting smugglers!

Just had an idea, well kind of thinking out loud really... While *accidentally* relieving a trader of their cargo, I discovered a lot of the containers had narcotics, firearms and slaves in them, so I didn't feel so bad... Which lead me to think that perhaps that 'trader' was actually - a smuggler! ...

Haven't seen enemies smart enough to survive Q-bomb. Not used it much though. Perhaps that's something that could be addressed in the AI of non-player ships? Most break off attack when a missile is fired at them (and they have no ECM) why not the same when alerted to the presence of a Q mine? Besid...

Couldn't the Q-bomb and the E-bomb switch prices? Now I only bother to buy the E-bomb because it's cheaper and it's more effective. If it was the other way round I think I'd use the Q-bomb when I'm lazy and save the E-bomb for real emergencies (like that pack of wolfes I ran into earlier today). I ...

As well as removing the shift-h from the wiki, shift-z (for scanner unzoom) needs to be added, as does pressing "i" on the local map to show the planet info icons. (which I admit I first thought "why?" but now use ALL the time...)

If you decide to do the piracy option you should think about buying the right equipment for more authenticity:
