Yup, that can be very disheartening, but you leave out the ability to also sleep on board of your ship, have ship interiors and social interaction + EVA and so on.Maybe it should be like SC. Wake up and leave room, get elevator to ground floor, Go to transport service and get on the transport to the mission giver, Get mission, Got back to transport to go to Spacedock. Get in elevator to get to ship, run from elevator to get to ship, Open door of ship and get in, walk to cockpit door and open it, get in flight seat.
Or we can just get mission from terminal, get lift, run 60 yards and get in flight seat.
I know what i prefer
