[FIX][4.10 Beta 5] Map needs Reset keybind

Post by loubert » Fri, 30. Jul 21, 02:58

Now that the map has a memory and does not automatically reset to its default position after a close>open, I find myself wishing I had a control/keybind to do that.

It’s something of an OCD thing where I need to be able to have my map oriented exactly at its default. So, please add that function. :mrgreen:

Beta 5 - Question - intended behavior of map memory feature?

Post by kmunoz » Fri, 30. Jul 21, 06:44

What is the intended behavior of the new feature that retains the view on the map each time it's opened?

Right now I'm noticing two things happening:

1) If I rotate the map view in any way, it stays that way, and I don't know how to reset it.
2) My map opens up centered on the Terran Equipment Dock in Jupiter, every time. It is not selected and my current ship is in an entirely different sector.

R is the "reset set map to top view" button.

But how exactly is the map deciding where to center when opened now? I'm having problems figuring out what the current behavior even is. Sometimes it opens where it was last closed, other times it will continue opening to one specific location over and over. I've tried using escape, I've tried using "M" and I've tried delete to exit out of the map, but it doesn't seem to matter which method I use.

The period, comma, and R keys work, but don't seem to reset where the map opens if it is closed and reopened.

As far as I'm aware, I have never rebound R to anything, but R currently does nothing as far as I can tell. What is the name of the keybind in the settings that corresponds to this? Or is it the same one that others are referring to as the "." key?

There are two issues in this thread: mine, and this one.

My issue is solved with comma and period. Done.

This other issue, as described in the quote I’m including, is a result of the new map memory feature being bugged. It is supposed to remember the last position, but sometimes, if you double-click an object in the map or the object list, the map will always open to that object, regardless of what else you do with the map. I believe this problem has a thread all its own.

4.1 beta 5


The problem I have with reset map view is that it ONLY works if you move the map, not if you merely tilt the map.
My main problem is accidentally tilting the map; so then to fix it I need to drag the map sideways before i can hit reset view.

LRS is one of the Shift-# hotkeys, isn't it?

Please keep on the topic of the issue in the thread title. Other discussion here just keeps pinging the dev monitoring this thread and wasting their time.

The probkem I am seeing with the map view is it gets into a rut remembering the wrong location.

For example in my current play through I have an Elite and a Manorina, I took a look at the Manorina and that was fine, dimissed the map. Travelling in the Elite I brought the map back up to look at my current location exploring in the boonies, it came up focussed on the Manorina. So I reset it with R to my current ship, diddled about with comma and period, that worked and I dismiss the map again and then call it up again and its back on the Manorina, so I press R, select my own Elite in properties, dismiss, call up the map and its back on the Manorina.

So I dont feel like that is ergonomic or even working as intended. It needs to remember where I changed it to and it doesn't. Its seems to have remembered one location which it keeps recalling but it is not refreshing the remembered location when I move the map. FYI

I just jumped back in and this is driving me crazy. Please add a way to Toggle this off until working better. I'll try the R and . keys.
