If you click the leftmost column, wait a second, the colonies/OSB you own will be listed at the top. They will have a little green dot on the icon denoting ownership.

So if you notice the little square where the "picture" of the station is you can actually see my ship, furthermore its a not really a picture but a small view in 3d of the station with my ship hanging there, if you move your view around notice the 3d wiew also moves around.. nice little feature, please add this to our colonies and OSBs.. ;)
Any support to my just cause! :)

Is it also possible to get the gates to be at the top so we can find them. Having to hunt through the list is time wasting.

I am posting here because this is not a bug, but a UI issue I have witnessed a lot.

Image

The Place Sell Order is often not understood. WE are asked often how do they post something to the GM. I am thinking if better wording, or putting this inside the Galactic Market UI might improve understanding. Even placing it UNDER the Galactic Market link and indenting slightly might help also.

By the way, I LOVE the new SS interface. It will take a bit to get used to, but very nice!

I would recommend a less transparent background on it. It also needs to have a higher Z to display over the Ship names around the SS.

The 1.4004 UI windows do not hide when we switch to the Map.

Image

The Chat and Autopilot stay visible also.

I am also wondering if the Autopilot could stay open when we make Jumps. Having to click it every time we transition from system to system seems redundant.

Also allowing for resizing of the chat window so the Autopilot and Chat do not overlap on smaller screens like mine would be nice.

I just wanted to make a separate post to take time to thank Jam, George and Nick for their work.

I can see the vision and I am VERY excited about the way things are developing. Thank for the long hours and extra effort you all are giving right now.

We want to do everything we can to make the Steam Release a very positive move. Without strong response, Jam will not be able to stay working full time. We players have a task at hand. We need to help, suggest, but also be very patient as they work through all the transitional issues.

I also encourage all to not hit Jam with a bunch of personal issues, but issues that are affecting the game at large. Not always easy to sort those out, but here is an example.

My ISB is bugged because I was dumb and decided I would build a SM in my ISB to see what happened. Well, it takes 2 minutes for whatever process that is locked up to give up and allow me to move and access things easily. I am just dealing with it since the only way to fix it is Jam to spend time reading through database files and clearing it out. I will not waste his time on this in the middle of all this.

These are the things we need to work together, identify system wide issues, and present them.

I say all this here, but I also witness this with most. So I may be speaking the the choir, but I did want to take the time to remind us that when one of the developers show up in chat, we need to work at helping them, but getting our one issue addressed.

Thanks again to all who are working together so well. Lets continue to make this a great game that allows several full time developers to enjoy a comfortable living.

Peace.

I second the notion of placing the sell order inside the galactic market as two side of the same coin, buy and sell.

I too would like to give big thanks for the new UI that has all but eliminated the crippling eye strain i got with the old UI.

While the new UI is much better than the previous it is still too high contrast for me and as has been mentioned no matter what colors you go with there will always be a situation for someone when it's unreadable.

I would like to request if it is possible to give us the ability to change window and font color and transparency. If we could do that and have 2 presets that can be toggled between then coupled with the other mechanical improvements to the UI(placement,resizing,posi mem,etc) that would compensate for a very broad spectrum of tastes(color aversions) and in game circumstances(font matching/blending w/ environment color).

Great job so far Nick. i can see it all coming together nicely.

I guess this falls under the New UI - It is more a bug but this seems a good place to post it.

I realised I needed to add some more time to my account before the end of the month. But i click the Premium Access button in game and nothing happens. (Beta 1.4005) This slightly hinders steam claiming of items and adding more Premium access time to my account :D
