hyperlink on heph movement screen
« on: August 15, 2014, 10:26:25 PM »
One of the biggest piss-offs I have is that the coordinates listed on the heph moving screen (the one that shows when your heph is moving from (A) to (B)) are not hyper-links taking you to the GALAXY screen.

I'd like to go to my heph moving screen and then click on the coordinates of where it's going to land and have the GALAXY screen for that system show up.

I've heard there's a userscript that will do that for you.

There are no hyperlinks because you cannot view the galaxy screen from a moving Groh and we don't want to make assumptions about which planet you want to view it from.

Groh is the name of a moving Hephaestus. :)

You make assumptions about what planet we want to be on when we log in...

Thanks for responding to this thread Matt...and ignoring the others as usual.

You can control what planet you are on when you log in.

ok, show me the option where I can log in under different planets each time. The only option is to log in on your homeworld.  The option is to change homeworlds...not where you log in.

The game recognises whichever planet you log into as your homeworld, that is set as default.

Howerver, @Matt, i think what he is asking in that case/regard is for an option to 'physically' select which planet you wish to log into by location.

For example:

Player A has planets @

1:1:1
2:2:2
3:3:3
4:4:4
5:5:5
6:6:6

And this is also the order in which they were created, this means under 2 options the planet at 1:1:1 would always be the default.  So unless he wanted to arrange the planets alphabetically, there is no option to select any of the other planets as the planet you log into.

As far as I know, this is indeed what BFG considers to be the solution to all planet arrangement problems, even though it's stupid.  I think the stupidity is considered elegance.

And, it doesn't answer why the link on the Hepha movement page can't just assume viewing the destination galaxy screen from your home planet is acceptable.
