I picked this game up not too long ago, and love it. Once I figured out how to capture capitals, I've started to roam around with a small fleet. The issue I'm having though is that whenever an enemy comes up to fight, all my ships launch drones. When they return, my console is flooded to the point that I can't see my radar without spamming the Shift + R because a hundred drones returned all at the same time.

Is there a mod out there, or any way I can disable the 'Drone Destroyed' spam? It's a minor issue, but one that makes me want to stop playing, or just not use anything drone related.

Hi,

I always capture capitals alone with only a single Drone-less Taranis lurking close by. Only after I disabled all weapons I call it to aid in bringing the hull down.

I anyway rarely outfit my capitals with drones. The cost is much too high for the gain.

Yeah, I don't get it. When I am in the same sector as my Capital ships, I get drone spam. It's also a little irritating that when an NPC is talking, you have no controls.

I had a big fleet battle where I took my ships into a mission with me where there were 3 enemy capitals. My radar was useless because there were so many drones being destroyed or returning. I had to Shift + R for almost a solid minute after the battle to clear my radar screen

Hello, I have constantly notifications of drones destroyed while they have nothing ... and I can not find or leave the notifications in the backup file.

If someone can give me the code to modify / delete or a script / mod to help me it would save me.

It's to the point that I do not even want to play so much that I'm harassed by these incessant reports of URV construction destroyed while I see them doing the work ... The radar is never visible and in a fight against is problematic. So I do not see the radar, loss or increase of reputation, transfer of money, etc.

I'm going crazy with a little thing that ruins the whole game.

I don't think it is the station construction that is being reported. It is more likely the orphan drone mechanic put in place in 4.10 that addressed an problem that when one of your capital ships boosts or jumps away while being repaired, it leaves its CURVs behind as stationary orphans although still showing them as 'in use' so that you cannot replace them on the ship.

The game mechanic recognises cases of orphaned drones, destroys the original orphans and puts replacements onto the parent ship. That action unfortunately used to generate lots of CURV (or Cargolifter) destroyed message spam, but that was then said to be fixed in version 4.30:

Changelog 4.30 extract: • Fixed player getting notifications for player-owned Construction URVs and Cargolifters getting destroyed.

What version are you on?

(Honimoura thread merged with previous thread on this.)

Notifications obscuring the radar map is a general nuisance. Unfortunately there is no "clean" way to solve this issue.

However, it seems that in X4 the PDA and radar map have been separated (at least I do hope so).

Hi,

I already wrote a post in the public feedback forum about that. Considering the size if a typical computer monitor today, there is enough room for several different virtual monitors dedicated to a) map, b) selected object info and c) messages.

Sufficient to say that the HUD and UI was poorly designed for XR plain and simple.
