I have that option on now... it doesn't work. It STILL tries to tell me that 800 Shields & no Bonuses is worse than 600 Shields with +1 Resistance to something, or some such stupidity, as a rough example...

I don't give a damn if a Component looks shinier & prettier to a Merchant... I care about how EFFECTIVE it is, in it's Core Stat first, & overall power second. Why is a Bomb with a +Attack Bonus it can't even put to use getting a Green Plus over a Bomb that does over 100 more Max Damage...? O_0 Oh, speaking of which, similar to how stupid it was for Unbreakable Items being able to have +Max Durability on them, it's stupid for Weapons that don't use the Attack Stat to be able to have +Attack on them... :/ (Example: Manual Aim Railguns.)

& while I can remember to think about it... is it normal for Crew that get obtained from Crew Recruitment Quests to have crappier stats (& in some cases, way crappier stats...) than Crew ya got at low level & kept & raised with ya for many many levels...? & is there such a thing as rare powerful Crew that could drop, like a Crew Equivalent of Rare/Artifact/Legendary/Elite?

This might be what you meant, but you want to uncheck that option.

There are elite crew.

No, even with it unchecked, it's still giving a plus symbol to items with lower stats but more affixes on it. Can you make it so we have the option of just going on the base stats?

I'll check it out. When it's unchecked it's supposed to only compare base stats.

Yes, I noticed this also.

Many thanks for this. I also wanna report another problem: The Check Mark for showing vs not showing the Health Bars over the Ship does nothing... it refuses to not show. I probably shoulda said something about this a long time ago, but I still can't tell if it's the game or me that's the problem... but for me, the game doesn't care if the Check on this option is on or off... the Bars won't leave.

If I remember correctly, there are a few options to turn off if you want all of the health bars gone.

Ahh, can ya specify exactly which ones? It's not obvious to me...

Any possibility of future Multiplayer PvP? I gotta Multiplayer pal of mine that can make me feel like blowing him up from time to time... (During the very rare times I even get to Multiplayer with him...) > : D

New Idea: (Or at least, I hope i'm not forgetting it to be already suggested or some such...) Radar to increase how far away your Fog of War Clearing power is, plus a bit of boost to the hidden Base Radar power since as is it's completely useless. Optionally, maybe Radar can try to see through Cloaks...?

New Idea: A way to 'Request' a certain Item with an exact particular Stat Requirement to help find stuff ya either can't find, or is much lower level than your current level... Example: My Main is in the Level 80s now, & thanks to an epic Mod that should become Vanilla, I FINALLY got some Structure on him. I've decided to take it to exactly 50. Now, the only Heavy Slot Armors that ever drop at my level have 3 digit Structure Requirements... what if I could make a 'Request' at a Merchant of any Planet of any Race that is at at least Neutral Terms with the Drox Operatives for... say... a "Heavy Slot Armor" Component with the exact Structure Requirement of "50"...? Then time would pass, then you can get a hail back from that Race('s Merchant) granting a Quest, ("You scratch my back, & i'll scratch yours.") that when completed, drops Randomized Loot containing just that exact thing ya 'Requested' with the exact same Item Type & Stat Requirement Specifications, but Randomized in every other way as normal. (Maybe the same way a Crew Member drops after a Recruitment Quest?) Then ya could farm for lower level stuff without needing an Alt.

Farming with an Alt & then using the Shared Stash is viable... but only if ya actually HAVE an Alt in an appropriate level range... & can one forsee ALL Stat Planning one might do for Characters in the future in regard to paying attention to a previously neglected tertiary Stat...? I never thought I would EVER get to do anything with my Main's Structure Stat till a miracle from Mod Heaven came to be... Lastly, what if a person was on their first character & taking them up to high levels before their next Alt... like I did?

I guess there's just player status bars and ingame status bars.

We are not likely to do any PVP type of stuff any time soon. It would be cool, but it's a huge feature.

In-Game Status Bars I need to leave on, cause it IS useful seeing the Shield, Armor, & Structure remaining on my Enemies... I seriously better not have to turn that off to get the bars over my own Ship off... or what was the point of the 'Bars over my Ship On/Off' option...? Please fix when ya have time, even if it is a low priority thing...

New Idea: Heavy Slot Shields. (I'm surprised these weren't in to start with... there's both Medium Slot & Heavy Slot Armor... )
