Allright people, this has become a very long thread indeed, and we have gone quite offtopic from discussing the actual patch notes. I'll lock this thread for now.

Good thing is - when it reopens, you can be pretty sure that new patch notes have arrived!

Ah ok thanks, it's no big deal.

n% could be 50%, 30% or even 25%, up to Alex.

This is for players who want to stick it to the Hegemony by destroying Eventide's Mirrors,

I'd prefer x% for every 50% in intervals of 3, down to Alex.

Uhhh, n% for every 100% of what exactly?

Isn't it obvious?

If my bluetooth headphones get disconnected, either manually or by distance, Starsector audio stops working. Other sources still play audio normally, either over reconnected bluetooth or normal speakers. Starsector needs a restart, though.

It would be nice if damaged fighters docked for quick repairs if they are on regroup orders and there is "no enemy presence".

By now im pretty sure it has nothing to do with Admin mode, it just sometimes works and most of the times not, even in one session if I tab out. But I turned off G-sync yesterday, I think that did it. Some synchonization mishap, that might explain why it takes a few seconds to freeze. I don't have the time to properly test it atm, though.

Hu - running it in admin mode fixed it. I don't quite trust the peace yet, will report back if it starts misbehaving again.

There absolutely has to be some kind of test drive thing for ships. Imagine you're a new player, go into a ship when you finally made some good cash and then just stare blankly into a wall of stats. Sure the stats give a nice picture but a new player will hardly ever get a "feel" for the ship just based on stats.

I understand the sentiment, I thought of that option a few times myself. But I have to say, for me, piloting a newly bought ship for the first time has always been an important part of the experience. The big reward moment for finally saving up enough money to buy it. I feel like a test driving option would just lead to more time spent in the shop looking for the perfect ship, and less time in actual gameplay.

To really get a feel for a ship, a simple test drive would not help anyway - you'd need to try it out with different loadouts, against different enemy types and fleet constellations, or in certain logistical situations. If you'd try to find out those things in a test drive option, you'd better off just playing the game.

some living barnacle that can only drink beer with SOY MILK gets offended by it. Just be aware that what you say, where you say it and how you phrase it

Please take you own advice here, the language seems overly harsh.

Bug Reports & Support / Menu turns black at 3440x1440

When I start the game, I see the loading bar for a few seconds, then the screen turns black. When I alt-tab out of the game and enter it again, one of two things happens: either it is still black, or the menu shows up  for a few seconds and then the screen turns black. When I try it in windowed mode, it also turns black, but when I put it in the background behind some other window it freezes without turning black.

I tried:

- Reinstalling
- Vsync on/off
- fps 60/100
- alwaysUndecoratedAtFullscreen":true/false

My System:

- Win 10 clean install
- Ryzen 3600
- GTX 1660 Super (current drivers)
- 3440x1440 100Hz Monitor (DP)

I also tried running it at a lower resolution in a window, that fixed the issue. On my old computer in ran in 3440x1440 no problem, though (at 60Hz, HDMI).

The current estimate is February next year.

To clarify: That is community guesswork, nothing official.

I agree, other bounty hunters going after named bounties would be great to make the Sector feel more real. But not too early, I think the bounty duration should be the time you have to kill it on your own, and only after that a fleet is generated to kill it off. And another one if the first fails.

Joking aside, it would be pretty cool to fight such a constellation. Some big baddy you have little chance to kill but you can oumaneuver, and it's little squishy companion you have to get at to end the fight. It could be the control unit or energy source or dimensional anchor or whatever.
Would really give you a reason to pilot an elite frigate instead of a battleship.

I want to suggest to make the "help popups" option part of the character creation questions. I regularly forget to uncheck it when creating a new character, that couldn't happen if it was asked e.g. between choosing the difficulty and the tutorial option.
Alternatively, after you unchecked it once, it could be auto-unchecked for all new characters.

Bit annoying getting pop ups if you don't need them. That's all.
