Every so often some of us hope Devs will read our posts and say ,Hey thats a good idea. Here is my attempt for this year.
Although some really great ideas to make PI better such as being able to cut and paste a setup to a different location or even a different planet, i am not looking for anything that wonderful.
It has been frequently asked if we can do our extractor resets with a single keystroke. to elaborate.
presently we have to find the extractor head on the planet (harder to do now with the improved planet graphics) but the initial focus is on the command center (which we almost never need to go to) and not the extractors.,
once we find the main head and clcik we get a pop up. from the pop up we get the interaction screen with a number of things we can do, but if all we wanted to do was restart the heads on a new cycle we click stop and then click start, and then slide our mouse over to a different location and click submit.
Since all we really wanted to do was restart the extractors, how about a button on the main interface that alllows us to “RESTART” and (if really necessary) submit.
the only other thing i have asked for in the past is for the “access” button to appear on undock and not just when you go to the planet selected. we dont always want to fly to the planet, we just want to move things from right to left or left to right. no need to waste time flying around. since the button already exists in the code but only appears when you are next to the planet i was hoping you could make it appear next to the “warp to:” button when we undock.
I am one of several people in my corp that manage more than 60 planets these changes would help immensely. (not to mention reduce my carpel tunnel syndrome)
