Are there any mods that allow you to set way-points, or that otherwise help ships *not* try to fly directly through stars? I am tired of sending fleets off to another system, only for them to decide that the jump point directly across the star is more attractive than the one in the outer system and then slam face first into the star itself, *then* faffing about trying to find a way around, while spiking my supply usage from under 10 per day to 100+ per day, sometimes for days on end (for bigger stars).

I would like something that either let me directly select which jump points to use, along with way-point to navigate in between, or even something with a simple "stay away from dangerous terrain" check box.

on some of them sure, but I have found quite a few that "leave" is the only interaction allowed (after reading the flavor text). It just seems. . . unfinished (feel free ti insert a "duh" here). I just wanted to know if there was a plan to flesh them out a bit, cause leaving them that way would just be super annoying. We can effectively strip mine an entire planet of artifacts, but we cannot harvest or reutilize these much more accessible structures? I mean, I can see suggestions for using them al over, but I have not seen any official comments on the matter, and I was wondering if there were any.

lol ok, thanks all. I fully explored the system, so I did not realize it was part of the core worlds (which I understand are special and not subject to most of the RNG stuff the outer worlds are). I have salvages many smaller stations in the outer worlds, which is why I got so confused when I found this one. I also understand that stuff like derelict solar shades etc are also "special" and have no purpose other than flavor/atmosphere, correct?

I guess I will just squirrel away the redundant rigs in case of accidents. 

Question: will there ever be a use for those bespoke derelicts? Claiming them and turning them into something useful would be really nice. (I did not notice anything on the main site about it)

I have been reading about salvage, and the way it is described leads me to believe you can salvage some of the larger objects in the game if you get enough salvage ships. Is this correct? I have a system with a large derelict station (not one of the ones that gives you free storage, this one says "derelict sporeship station" and the only interaction I can do with it is "leave". I have been stockpiling salvage rigs, and am now up to 9 of them, but it seems like no number is enough. Is it even possible to do? If so, how many salvage rigs do I actually need? Is there a list anywhere of all the stuff you can actually salvage, or am I stuck guessing? Help is appreciated.
