The cursors are placeholders at the moment. It's appropriate that the cursor change when dragging, and it does that.

The bottom panel probably needs its own "close panel" edge.

Yes, this functionality is coming.

ESC now dismisses the bottom panel. I agree that ESC should bring up the menu in the case when the bottom panel is already dismissed. There is also now a gear icon on the top bar that will bring up the game menu when clicked.

I agree, the science glyph whitespace needs to be wider.

Why is this undesirable? It is essentially a webpage.

Most of the UI should move to this model as we revamp each screen.
luciderous wrote:Something like a “cloud of war” for unexplored space on the strategic map would be nice, so that the player doesn’t see what’s happening everywhere in the galaxy right away. For example: on the game start - you can only see your own star system with planets rotating. Other systems are only visible as stars (no planets visible, no names for systems, no ships orbiting) until scouted.
This is already how the game works -- you don't see the system name, planets, or any ships in a system until it is explored.
Make sure you have the "omniscient developer" feature turned off in Options.
