Hidden UI / Videofeet bug
« on: August 29, 2012, 10:15:48 AM »

When you select the "show video feed" view of a ship and hit F11 (hide UI) it returns you to the tactical map. The "follow target" view works fine.

Also, when you select "show video feed" and open the tactical map intentionally, after you close it again the view is back at your own ship.

Arranging holidays in an embrace with the Starsector is priceless.

I'm pretty sure that's intentional. Doing anything in the 'show video feed' cancels out of that view, since it could be very confusing to have your view stuck on a ship and wonder why none of your buttons are working.

EDIT: Although, I can see the point of wanting to hide UI while using 'show video feed.' That part could probably be classified as a bug. A workaround is to disable the UI before activating 'show video feed.'

Thanks for the report(s).

Fixed.

As intended. A bit awkward, though, I'll grant that :)

Great, thank you. You probably noticed, but just to make sure: the "jump-to-tacmap-bug" happens if you toggle weapon arcs, too.
