Mouse Hover Updates
This week there has been some major polish given to the mouse when hovering over ship objects. When you previously moused over ship objects the name of the object would appear. This was implemented in order to assure users understand what every object that can be clicked and interacted with was as well as helped with the initial place holder objects while in development. Now there is a proper mouse over selection cursor when interacting with an object is relevant. By clicking the objects a new GUI window will appear and in some cases this window provides information to the player such as who is using the object and whether or not the object has a potential to break soon.
When a crew member is selected the mouse hover options also include what the item will do. By issuing an order via right clicking an object (currently on PC), the crew member will use the object for its intended purpose. For instance when having a crew member selected when hovering on the bathroom the cursor will include a roll of toilet paper, when a flight crew member highlights the weapon console the icon will change to the weapon console. If a mechanic highlights the weapon console the icon will not show as the same as they do not have the skills needed to work on that item.
