I do remember seeing the bonus in game before my first palace started building. But I have research going at the moment so will have to check when that is finished. I will keep you posted

Another thing I noticed that you dont see new chat messages when you are looking at the galactic map you get when you press the "M" key. You do see the new messages once you exit the galactic map though. So not sure if this should be considered a bug, but thought I would just put it down here so you guys can think about it.

EDIT
I just checked my colony and I guess I must have been mistaken since it says 150 now. Which is correct, since I have 2 pyramids completed. Sorry for wasting your time guys.

Not sure if this is a bug, but it is something that needs to be looked at.

Font size (especially of the chatbox)
Resizing the different boxes (again, especially the chatbox)

People with a decadent monitor (like me I'm ashamed to say) have trouble reading the chat. Had someone ask about it in the help channel too earlier today.

PS. sorry if I missed it on the sheet. Looked for it, but couldnt find it.

We can not resize the chat in the client. It may be the resolution he is running conflicting with game resolution. We have had some who had to runt he game in a lower resolution to get the boxes and font readable. May take some playing to get it dialed in.

I have added an entry under the Main Visuals heading.

Moon. Can you add the problem that you cant find systems that share numbers with other systems you own? Cause that one is getting me frustrated to no end.

For instance. I am looking for RandomName-___-215. Instead I can only find RandomName-___-2151. And sure, I can look for every single system by hand... but that is not how it should be. Or if that is how it was intended, they should just remove the search option and make us do it all manually. I have literally hundreds of roid fields that are "lost" because of this at the moment. Since I have been exploring like crazy lately. So I am close to 4k systems now, which means that this problem might occur to any system up to #400 soon.

Actually this problem is serious enough to be treated as a bug in its own right. My list is really for stuff that we can live with for the moment, but needs to be looked at in the long term. This is a really serious problem that needs to be solved as soon as possible. I think you should create a separate thread for it.

It is not a bug. Adding the ___ is a hack. If you add in the entire name, it will find the system you are searching for.

Yeah, that is a bit silly though since when I started playing the --- was the first thing people told me to do when making a register for my systems and roid fields. And now I am stuck with hundreds of perfectly good fields that are simply lost. I will basically have to revisit 1151 systems now. Since that is the number of fields I have currently. It might not be called a bug, but it is a very big annoyance. And I dont understand why there isnt an absolute search system. Where you find what you are actually looking for, since I cant imagine that being hard to implement. But I guess it is, since we are using another search system.

Actually the ___ is an exploit. The random three characters were added to system names to prevent players from searching other player's systems. Then someone found that you could find other player's systems if you put the three underscores in place of the three random characters.

However, as it is now general knowledge and in general use, especially for finding one's own systems, I think the search should either give a list of matching entries or get the system with that specific number.

I will add this to my list, but I am not at all sure Jam will do anything about it.

Not sure who gave you that advise, but it is not good advise. Sorry. If you need help sorting it all out, let me know. I will do what I can to help. There will only be a few systems that you can not find. If they are close to systems you can find, you can often find them on the Map. I will help you as much as I can. Just let me know.
