A small scanning idea

Since the update that made probe scanning a joy, by my understanding the game is a state of perfection, so since the devs must be bored of having naff all to do I was wondering if they would entertain my little idea?

I can't be the only person who can't afford a 4k monitor, so surely I can't be the only person who uses the same UI window for dscan and probes...

My idea in a nutshell is that pressing the dscan hotkey will do a dscan and swap to the dscan window, and pressing the probe hotkey will swap to the probe window and will either launch or scan....

Just a thought, all my love xxx

Opening your idea with two small paragraphs of sarcasm may not be the best way to present a suggestion for consideration by the people you're mocking.

Just a thought.

Seriously though, this seems like something for the Little Things thread on the new forums at Make sure you use the correct formatting.

the first paragraph was probably badly worded, of course they are doing things to improve the game, it's my fault that I can only think of one small thing they can do to make it better, I honestly thought that probe update was amazing.

the second paragraph was a nod to balance that also probably came out wrong.

fair enough, sorry if I offended anyone xx
