Version 20.04 - Known Issues

Confirming I have same issue, also the UI spacing/padding is all messed up on the slider. Also the Directional Scanner window still has the issue where it displays only a single digit when it initially opens. Moving the slider fixes it and the number shows proper.

I can no longer create Contracts with Item Exchange/Assembled ships to put multiple ships on contract at once


Good thing that they do mention it:

A whole new update and this simple thing is still not fixed? What is this now, 4 weeks?

  • When dragging a name into the ‘name’ field to create a contract. It doesnt automatically select the private option on the availability.
  • When sitting in a ship or pod all inventory windows (mining hold / fuel bay / fleet hangar) are automatically in a sort of middle state between compact and none compact, the item count and Est price dont show up in the middle state.

DISABLE light background.

You gotta fix this one ASAP. Ugh.


It appears that unstacking a window does not fix this either. My Chat channels are now rendered unreadable whenever I open up a private convo.

The loud chirping noise when you move over lists in the UI is quite unnerving. What purpose is this supposed to fulfill besides making you question your sanity because you can’t find the cicadas in your room.


This does not work. I just took one chat tab out of the stack into a separate window but there is no Disable Light Background option accessible anywhere.


In the Ship Tree, the “Hauler” are still called “Industrial”.

Workaround for the windows reopening after each jump: Close each window individually by right clicking on its tab at the top of the window, then clicking close. This will stop the constant reopening.


When I move the mouse over the Locations and then the new Check Box options, the Locations sub menu does not disappear as it should.


Interesting re locations, but what about the “Show Nearest location and sov” check boxes in the right click menu as well

Not sure the value, they literally just pop the "sov and the nearest location details in the top left, which are already doable from the buttons…in the top left?
are they not listed in the notes, or have i just been asleep and not noticed they have secretly been there for months (Apologies if im just asleep!)


1 I’d like to say Thank you for all your heard work thru the years of design and development of this game, it’s truly great. Just a few side comments The music thing is obnoxious I had to turn volume off, I can confirm the tabs reopening at un dock as well, kept doing it to me tho I’d closes them just before un docking. Then in space and there open again It’s annoying to not see screen when u docking can be deadly in bad space. The map, skill que, and stuff would reopen. Annoying but playable. I don’t fly one but comments say buff to proteus wasn’t enough. I think Great to see that t3 get some love, as I heard it is bad when compared to the other t3 cruisers. Maybe give it a small drone dam. boost as that race has drones boats. Vexor, mrydom, brutix etc there race has drone bonus ships their a drone race if you will. Perhaps the t3 should reflect that. Thank you for making game and continuing to develop it. I play all time. Thank you cheers

Changing the active division of the corporate wallet causes the entire wallet window to go blank until you close and re-open it.

The Compare Tool window. I’m pretty sure clicking the labels of the attributes to the left used to check/unchecks the attributes. I keep clicking them freaking labels, as if I was used to click them out of habit, only to realize I need to click the checkbox. Am I crazy, or it should go in feature request ?

When creating a contract, entering a name into the field for the recipient does not automatically set the contract to “private” like it used to.

As a general comment on the Photon UI: text sizes for window titles are wildly inconsistent, and generally too large. Probe Scanner, inventory/hangar windows, Directional Scanner, PI window are all fine; Fleet Window, chat tabs, Chat join/search, the POCO window, etc. are all way too large.

Also: buttons are across the board too large, and most of this is due to far too much padding between text and the edge of the button. Instead of making text bigger, shrink the buttons until the padding is half what it is now (or even less). We’re not using touchscreens; the design guidelines for touchscreen-UI design shouldn’t apply.

The “Board My Corvette” button is far too prominently placed for something I suspect gets used only very rarely. Make it a button among the station services, or place it below them.

Add Corporation Contact suddenly no longer working - error message states “No standing selected” even though the selected standing box is clearly selected with a white border. Can only add personal contacts as a result.
