I made a few comments on QuarterToThree and was happy to see that I can now see my Challenge History as of 1.20. Since I just noticed on Twitter that the game is coming to completion I wanted to reiterate one of my comments and add a new one and this seems like the more appropriate place to state them.
I have seen posts similiar to this, I just wanted give my own updated view on the matter. Mass Deploy is very difficult for me because I keep selecting existing ships when I try to mass deploy ships in close formation. There is something funky going on with the picking/collision code. If that can’t be fixed then perhaps a copy/paste operation where I can constantly ctrl-v the ship I last ‘copied’. That would rapidly allow me to place them roughly into position and then just slide nudge them into a final position. In general, it would also make all operations a lot easier if I could select laid out ships (either by picking or bandboxing) and use a copy/paste operation.
There is a slight bit of acceleration/deacceleration on the cursor which also makes it difficult for me to pick things with fine detail (e.g fighter squads, frigates and most esp weapons during battle playback). I’ve played with both my operating system mouse settings and the ingame mouse speed and it doesn’t quite cut it - the problem isn’t the speed; its the velocity changing behavior. I think a simple option to remove the acc/deacc with solve it. I guess I’m too used to a linearly moving cursor.
Great game and I can’t wait to play with the new carrier modules and to try some more challenges!
