    Awesome! Love the little wire frame on the HUD of the original space station! I'm way more excited for this than Star Citizen it has to be said.

    Not too sure I like the stars whizzing by effect when you're flying normally.

    Looks kinda silly.

    Clearly traveling at x hundreds of meters per second you wouldn't see stars moving, so the dots you see are just suppose to be micrometeorites. ie: Just bits of dust.

    In truth they wouldn't show them at all other than to help give you a visual clue to your speed/direction.

    I hope there's a checkbox to turn them off, or something in a ini file or whatnot.

    Maybe, but I think they're in there for a very good reason. ie: Without them you have little/no visual guide to your speed or direction of travel. I suspect they didn't want to have them - as they're not realistic - so have only put them in as a required necessity for good game play.

    Oh, I know the reason that they're there. The old X wing vs TIE Fighter game did the same thing. But they're still awful looking.

    There must be a better way to indicate speed in a space sim.
