That's my only nitpick when it comes to user interface.

And maybe a little wider scrolbar?

I second the implementation of Home key & End key functionality.

As for a wider scrollbar, I strongly second that! I loathe the existing one that's so unnecessarily narrow; using it is like having to do cranial microsurgery with my cursor. :(

Don't tell me I'm playing anything wrong in a singleplayer sandbox game. Just don't.

Nothing wrong with wanting a wider scrollbar, though.....mousewheel?

Thanks for the suggestion, made a note.

Re: scrollbars: initially, they were not clickable and only served as a visual indicator for where in the list you are. Then at some point there were a few players with mice without a scrollwheel (gasp) and I ended up making them clickable, as an edge-case workaround.

Ideally, they'd be a bit wider, given that they *are* clickable now. Probably 2-3x what they are now - but they're all over the place, and even a small increase would require looking over the entire UI and adjusting where needed - so it's actually fairly laborious. And given that the mousewheel is pretty much superior anyway...

(Btw: holding shift while using the mousewheel scrolls a lot faster; intended for longer lists.)

Might want to put that into the tips if it isn't already

Mouse wheel is only better if the list of ships is not too big.  With a huge inventory of dozens or maybe more than a hundred ships, clicking on scroll bar and dragging the mouse is much faster than scroll wheel.

I like to see a wider scroll bar.  It truly is "cranial microsurgery".

I like to see the return of the ship size filter that was featured in 0.5x era, before it was removed at 0.6.  It makes finding ships easier when I have so many ships stashed at a single location.
