I certainly do see it’s possibilities Nozmajner and I think it’s a step in the right direction. Part of me though will still miss the old UI layout but that’s likely due to all the years I poured into Elite II, the previous Pioneer, Scout and Genesia builds. Would it be possible to have both as options in game, then we could compare them side by side? Kind of like a legacy option?
Sorry, but the old dashboard is almost 100% gone. We have three distinct UI systems in Pioneer right now, but our hope is to converge all things to this new one. Less headache I guess with having only one UI system.
And now that I think of it, I can’t remember too much of the Elite II UI to be honestl I played it quite a lot, and there are lots of memories, ships and adventures, but not the UI for some reason.
Also, don’t quote me on that, but this new dear-imgui based system might be flexible enough to provide the means of a dashboard revival if somebody wants to do something like that. But I’m not on the coding side of things, so…
Nozmajner, could you please relay a message from me to the rest of the dev team. I’ve just noticed [my thread on the Frontier forum](https://forums.frontier.co.uk/showthread.php/1596-The-Pioneer-Thread “my thread on the Frontier forum”) has now topped 100,000 views! I am stunned to be honest, but there is a heck of a lot of people out there interested in Pioneer it seems! 😮
So I just wanted to say to the Dev team; well done and thank you for all your hard work in constantly updating the build. A thanks also to Vuzz (for Genesia), Gernot (for all those ships, starport models and a whole host of other stuff he created), Marcel (for his amazing Hometowns mod plus other things he created), walterar (for Scout Plus) and the many others out there who helped. Finally a special thanks to Tom Morton who started the ball rolling.
You guys are the best! o7
Finally I’ve uploaded the second “August” Pioneer build to Mod DB and having lots of fun with it. Great work as always guys and thanks Nozmajner for your screen shots of Saturn, they are lovely and are on deck! 🙂
Not screenshots, but might be interesting:
My workplace bought a bq hephestos (Prusa I3 derivative) 3D printer recently, so I figured I’l use Pioneer models to get the hang of it.
First try is a 5cm, 0.2 resolution Sinonatrix:
Then I chopped up the Mola Mola, and scaled it to 1:120, (or TT scale for train modelers), so it could even become a diorama eventually, and I could buy figures and such for it.
