Ive been setting up my entire plan for a full time production facility and have had quite a bit of PI this week. Id love to give my thoughts too.
I love the patch work. Great Job CCP. There are a few things that stand out to me. I like that you can zoom in more. I dont like how the zoom behaves and how the view appears, when at the top or bottom of the planet however.
I struggle moving around the camera “accurately” when zoomed in, seems like its jumps from position to position, rather than a smooth movement? This is annoying for people who are ocd… just saying. Id like my setup to be square, and have right angles… Though it doesnt have to be perfect, I do put in some effort to make my setup look professionally constructed. Maybe either fixed locations across a grid may be an idea? So no matter where I put my set up, it will always be in divisions of equal distance or size, length, and angle.
I like that the routing is semi automatic once schematic is selected. Is there objection to making it auto route to all processors that have that schematic allowing such resources to be inputed? can save more clicking…
I love the new planetary production window, I like how I feel I dont need a spreadsheet just to check everything is in order… I dont mind that its size can be changed, but I do mind that I cannot organize or stack the planets in the window, how I want. It will stack them as you lay the command centers down, so in order of warp, or order of material by name, etc… it would be nice if I could just click and drag them up or down to stack them as I see fit?
I do not like that you took away the old text version. I do think you should have both. I used that text window to warp to, EASILY… now its a pain in teh ass… the size of the PP window is larder, its nice it shows all the info clearly, waht is being extracted, processed. I actually stack this with the overview… so I have to toggle overview or PP window, and that will interfere with my security of operations. please bring back the text window, and let us choose which ones we want to use and for which reason.
I dont feel there is anything wrong with the extractor control window, the slider was moved, teh buttons changed, looks good. I love the graph and color intensity…
In the scan tab upper left, can you display the percentage next to the bar showing the level of material on the planet? and or some other stats, like au, number of total pi on the planet, idk if thats stupid or what not, but could be useful info to some. Im aware I can view all networks, but I think some textual data display will be nice. can stick a number or % just left of the intensity bar, right of the resource name.
All in all Im happy with the PI setup.
ATM I just renovated and improved my setup: 72 planet extraction plus 78 planet production, all 8 p4 items across the board.
