You'll have my vote again this year anyway. But i'd like your opinions on the click fest that is PI at the moment, and do you have an opinion on how it should be changed (if indeed you think it should be changed).



The core mechanics behind PI are pretty decent. If changes were to happen, it'd mostly be UI I'd be asking for.

Things like automatically starting a link when you place a factory. Or allowing you to have a list of facilities to link to, rather that having to find the right one.

Or being able to say 'draw all your materials from this site' as a shortcut to the multiple clicks to fill ad advanced facility. And having some kind of visible notification when you don't have the product being routed anywhere.


The click fest is bad on PI, I had to set up 32 planets today over 6 toons, I think I have arthritis in my fingers. I too think the fundamentals are ok but yes UI could do with changes. Auto link would be one but just in case you get a bee in your bonnet on PI and afer killing my hands today can I offer a few more suggestions.

When placing a factory and setting it for a certain blueprint, say precious metals for example, have an option that propagates that choice over all your factories that you have placed. To place a factory, set up a material and route it is 8 clicks per factory. 32 setups, roughly 7 factories per planet, that is a hell of a lot of clicks.

If your route back from your extractor is over 100%, allow the upgrade to happen (assuming you have the CPU/PG) to happened without having to cancel the route, then clicking on the link to upgrade, then trying to re-route again.

When placing factories, launchpads etc, allow a “snap too” feature that places them close together, the pain involved in trying to make that gap small is horrendous

I think even these 3 changes would drastically improve quality of life when it comes to setting up PI

Steve,

I'm curious as to your answer to the following easy question?


Quote:
Describe a situation where a ship, without the help of another ship, active modules, or going into or coming out of warp, can achieve acceleration that is twice the magnitude that can be achieved with double-click piloting?

Steve answered correctly on slack (with some help from rhivre).
