I am late again but it would be great as an option and to have it default for starting players. Whenever I showed this game to my friends their reaction was always the same, they couldn't get the inventory, map and radar on screen at the same time in a comfortable config like what c1 had. It's also a pain resizing everything to match. An option that can do it for me would be phenomenal.

Whilst true, modern games do not constantly show you the inventory but these modern games also have you be much less engaged with your inventory. Personally, I can't handle not seeing my inventory in SS for even a minute and constantly try to resize everything to match c1.

What are you doing in your inventory all the time while in combat?

Got too many Tweaks to key bind also switching different modded gear around and I like to look at what I scooped up, right click to check on market or hover the mouse over it to see what it is and look at my gear see what I should improve next...idk a load of things and I think it is safe to assume many players think the same since responses from the player base have mostly been positive.

Honestly it would make things a hell of a lot easier for beginners too.

We devoted a fair bit of dev time to this project and ultimately cancelled it because of unsurmountable code issues.

After the recent Youtube-review on the game it seems like the inventory UI could do with a lot of work, so it would be interesting to hear what the possibilities are, even if a C1-like docked UI is out of the question.

Can you give a link to this review? I'm not aware of it.

Kinda looks like they accidentally blitzed through the tutorial and didn't know how to brake the ship. Also, dat camera angle.

No one plays tutorials if they can avoid it, the UI has an obligation to be simple enough to decipher without it.

Edit; also gotta love the engine graphic bug attaching thrust animations to his ion peashooter.

That bug is a nasty one.. Jey has been trying to find it for a while but it's deep in the engine. I think he said he was getting close though

Yeah, I felt like every run through the nexus after the first was a bit punishing. Would love for it to be optional.

every developer should switch from developing content for Alex to content to get and keep new players.
