Hi all.

With the new SIsi build you should be able to try out our new feature - the radial menu in space.

Please try it out while flying around space, and give us your feedback Big smile

The new radial menu can be used on brackets in space, items in the overview and on your targets... Have fun :)

I hope certain things, like target and look at, haven't changed their position in the new radial menu from the current one, muscle memory is such a pain to break. I use the current radial menu so much that I don't even look at it anymore, just click-hold-drag and its targeted.

A lot of these options have changed position (often to the opposite side of the menu). It's really messing with my head...

Suggestion :

You should add the radio menu usable from Fleet Broadcast History.

The mouse move that set the warp range is an excellent idea !

The mouse slows down considerably while using a radial menu, like quite badly.

I have also noticed that the only way to close the radial menu without having any options selected is by being in the middle of the radial menu, while being outside of it makes it choose the one it's alligned with, no matter how far the mouse is.
Is that intended?

I think it is intended, as this used to select a range.

Test with a Warp action, more you stay align to the option and go far from it, your warp range change (look in the middle the information changing)

It is working with Warp / Align / Keep at Range / Orbit.

Ah yes, hadn't noticed that myself yet >.< But I sure hope the slow mouse is not intended, it's quite painful.

The slow mouse after radial menu activation is more of a "Mouse wont go all the way up the screen"

I activated the sensor overlay, and wanted to warp around with it, but was unable to reach far enough up my overview to select the gate I wanted.

It wasnt slow, it just got stuck about ½way up my screen.

I had to press escape to get it working again.

After that, it was fine each jump with the sensor overlay running, so it seems like it was just opening of the radial menu (From the scanner button) which made it get stuck

Dragging to set range, like with orbiting: Will it be locked at 30k like the dropdown menu? I noticed that set default range is replaced with another dropdown menu going only to 30k.

I like it a lot, but there's a few places where it's missing.

example : on the autopilot system list,, you can't use this left click to activate it, as it will use show info

  • The "Warp to" option where you get the different distances when you move our cursor further out is really nice!
  • The "+" is option replaced with only 1 option (e.g. a planet in warp distance). In this case that one option (in the example "save location") could just be in the place of the "+".
  • I don't like the way you have to move the cursor back into the middle or outside a greyed-out function to not do anything. I believe it will lead to many involuntary commands. Just make it like a right click closes the menu without an order. Now a right click sends the order. The current one is just really dangerous, it will make loads of people warp to range when they wanted to just close the menu.

Is the software mouse cursor necessary? the change of input delay and sensitivity when opening the radial menu is really odd.

I also encountered some bugs, while playin on win7 in windowed mode when i open a radial menu and move away the mouse it reaches a maximum vertical and horizontal position where it can't go further and stays there, then the OS cursor appears out of the window where it actually should be

The change in mouse movement speed when opening the radial menu is really jarring. I have my mouse DPI set at a level that's comfortable for me in all scenarios, and a game shouldn't change that in the middle of doing things.

Wow i do not like the radial thing on the scanner as deployed on the scanner button in the HUD.

I much prefer it to open the interface than open a radial choice.

I found clicking and then moving the mouse - and remember which side to move teh mouse to - to be much more work than just opening up the scanner with one click.

I have not tried on some of the other things......but for the purposes of the scanner button i would rather it be gone.

Confirming mouse lag on radial menu as well. Ideally no speed changes should occur.

Please move "View in Planet Mode" somewhere unobtrusive and away from the navigation buttons, perhaps to the lower right. That is quite possibly the most annoying thing about the interface, present and future.

One thing that frustrates me about the radial menu is how after making a selection the mouse jumps back to its original position.

It's very hard to get used to.

Enjoying the rain today? ;)
