Compile and accept mission offerings in intel screen
« on: May 02, 2018, 09:54:30 AM »

After not playing for a long while I recently started a new campaign, and I'm happy to find that the game is still as much fun as ever. I'm bothered by one thing, tough:

I would love to be able to better plan my excursions into uncharted space. How about if instead of docking with a station and having to accept the offered missions on the spot, the mission offerings would be transferred into your intel screen? Then you could visit several planets and compile a list of viable destinations (and their time limits). You could then project those destination onto your map (with a new filter?) and find those that are well aligned with each other, to plan out an ideal route. Accepting those missions would also work remotely from the intel screen.

That's actually exactly the process I try to follow right now (when I'm serious), but currently it is very tedious. It requires you to log out of any relevant job offering and manually search the system in question on the map, all while keeping track of time constraints and the possibility of offerings suddenly ending.

The game was completed 8 years ago and we get a free expansion every year.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.

Indeed, there is such a thing as being too good for your own good :)
