    Just came back to the game after a long hiatus, about 2 years, and there's been a lot of wonderful developments, but also a lot of features I would have wished were already done.

    First the good: lots of new critters, crouching, exploration tokens, longer story (albeit still not finished), the water looks amazing, a much improved dialogue system, keys (love them!) and overall many remodelled items and new textures. Oh and the posters are a lovely addition!

    The bad: no improvement has been done on controls, boo! Flight mechanics appear to be the same. There is still no targetting system on ships??? You still can't take over enemy ships and enemies despawn quicker than you can loot them.

    If I had to pick one, it would be controls! Why when I set my ship to a speed (CTRL+W) I can't use any of the other ones e.g. A, D, SPACEBAR and C without deactivating it. This means chasing drones or CVs is almost impossible and you end up jousting all the time. But what I would really like to see is the return of JOYSTICK control!!! The mechanics are all right there, cruise control, auto brake and clearly analogue support for gamepads, or am I wrong?

    I've been saying for years that space and the flight experience is what needs the most work for late game enjoyment.
