    I'm sorry. Is this the right room for an argument?

    You can select all of the text using your mouse. That would allow you to read it. Or change the forum style to the Frontier scheme. You can change it back to black afterwards if you want. I prefer the white background because it's the right one to use. ;) <edit> It wasn't really that long. It looked that way because it was properly spaced and formatted. It's an interesting read, which makes it seem shorted as well. </edit>

    Wow. That sucks out loud. 50 days of work wiped out for "reasons". If that happened to me, I'd get really upset. I'd buy a plane ticket to England and drink all of their beer. That would show them. I might just do that.

    If it's intended that we can get sent to these locations more than once, that's cool, just thought I would put a flag up in case it's undesirable for that to happen. Severity Minor Frequency Once (<1%) Time of occurrence Unknown, sorry, file converter wiped the file dates.

    This is embarassing but I just realized I already made a thread about this here... https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/350793-Minor-QOL-Please-add-an-option-for-desired-screenshot-file-type , though that one is locked. *facepalm* My bad, sorry! Moderators, please feel free to do some cleaning if you need to.

    So over the course of the past week or two, I've encountered this Left-hand UI panel lock bug *every single time* that I've used my SRV and my ship has been dismissed (whether manually or automatically after you go too far away) and then recalled for me to return to it within a single session. I'll be writing up and linking the bug report soon....

    (Cleaning my screenshots folder) You can see from the exhaust trail how this NPC hit me from behind, causing that "Reckless Flying" fine.

    1. Crew members should not be permanently lost upon ship death. Perhaps add a price of "life pod recovery" to the rebuy screen, or make it so you have to rescue said pilot's life pod yourself, do whatever you want to if there needs be a challenge - but the penalty of just flatly losing a worked-up NPC permanently for dying is far too extreme, unless you want to include it in some new Iron Man mode for the masochists that I know exist in the Elite community. :P 2. Crew members should not get full profit cut when not in use. Alternatively, they could have a fixed salary instead of a fixed percentage of all profits. It's utterly bizarre how wealthy some of these NPCs are getting for sitting on their hands. 3. Crew members shouldn't reduce the combat experience you gain. Period. I have spent months, years even, working my way through the ranks, unlocking ships, JUST so I could construct a ship that can have a fighter bay and use said fighter bay on my way to obtaining Elite combat rank. The fact that...

    The current radar displays become *way* too cluttered in ship-crowded instances. It becomes extremely difficult to use it to gauge how close something actually is or isn't, no matter whether I use Linear or Logarithmic mode. I feel this would be greatly improved if - in a subtle, measured amount, nothing obnoxious, just enough to be noticable - the squares and triangles representing radar contacts would increase or decrease in size based upon the direct-line distance from the player's ship. If making a badly MSpainted image to show what I mean would help, I *could* be inspired to do so, for right now I'm moving on to getting through my list of suggestions/squawks here. :P

    I would really like it, when hopping around from system to system, if - when hovering the selector over systems, planets, stars, whatever, in the Navigation panel - there were a button allowing me to go directly to the system view of that thing, rather than having to look at the system name, then open up Galaxy map, find that system, select it, and *then* open up the system map. Poorly MSPainted image for reference:

    Ewww, you're right, I just noticed that the file size doesn't go down at all. No wonder recent imgur uploads take so long.... I don't use EDDiscovery, unfortunately. I guess I'll have to do more internet digging into .bat/CMD prompt commands to actually *convert* multiple files at once.... edit: Okay, so there's no simple CMD prompt commands for it, but there is "Bulk Image Converter" on sourceforge that got the job done perfectly.

    From looking around the forums, I know I am not alone when it comes to being picky over hiring NPC crewmembers. It would be really nice if, when looking at new candidates in the Crew Lounge, we could prompt a voiced introduction or greeting of some kind, as a nice immersive way to preview the 'voice package' attached to said NPC. Even a curt "Greetings Commander" might suffice?

    Whenever I'm trying to 'scroll' through contacts via the "Next Contact" keybind, I'm driven up the wall by how often it selects a contact that is barely within radar range when the majority of contacts are well within 3KM of me. (or clear on the other side of the system, in the case of supercruise) This is really annoying. Please, if you could Fdev, add a new option for Targeting keybinds that selects the nearest contact - perhaps three keybinds actually: one for all contacts, one for friendlies, and one for Hostiles only.

    As in title. The raw .bmp format is often too much for sites like imgur to accept, so I have to convert them to .jpg first before uploading. Doing so file by file is tedious, so I had to go and find out how to make a .bat file to convert all .bmp files in the folder to .jpg with a single click. For those interested, the file is simply this: "ren *.bmp *.jpg" Put the stuff between the quotes into a text file, save as a .bat file, then just double click it to execute the command. Actually this doesn't properly convert the files, see bitstorm's reply below. But really, this seems to me like something small/easy that should just be included in the game: an option in the settings menu to select the desired file format for saved screenshots.

    Funnily enough it was reddit where I saw that they take half your experience and that someone had proof of it via keeping track of the kills they got with and without a SLF pilot...trying to dig that link up now.... edit: Found the quote but not the direct link: I'm aware their rate of ranking up is increased and I also never take them off "Defend" mode, so the occasions where they are "soloing" a kill is negligible. edit: Actually, read into the thread - there are multiple support replies. This one in particular stands out as worrisome for me: Which basically confirms that NPC SLF pilots are stealing half the combat experience....

    This has been a common argument against Solo and Private Groups or even a PVE Open if it ever came about. Some want EVE in a cockpit, they can accept it is a different game and a different way to play. Since they PVP they expect everyone else to as well and for us to accept their playstyles as the really only proper playstyle for the game. They reject the BGS and demand that the only way to counter them is through direct assault.

    So I need a dedicated weapon group for it if all my current weapon groups use both keys already. Le sigh.
