Yeah, accessing particular screens feels okay overall, I guess the really annoying part is when you have to back out of multiple layers since we can't quite just x out a panel. Hovering over stuff is trickier, which made learning combat and finding details on enemy ships a bit tricky, but being able to pause helps.

Yeah, I don't expect it, partly because they've said they'll be judging the sales numbers to decide if they even go further than Utopia I think, but even without that, it's possible it makes sense for the console adaptation to just not do everything the same.

Hopefully I get it right! I have to remember to go check what they're default rights are set at, I assumed it would be favourable based on my starting ethics. I'm still trying not to expand until I have all the tech I want this time, going 'tall' I think they call it.
