Just a few simple questions on the warp topic.

1) Is the graphic for ships entering/exiting warp final and are they moddable? The current one I saw on stream for them entering warp was a little odd. I dont think I saw one, if there is one, for a ship coming out of warp but I remember seeing ships enter warp leaving the battle video.

2) With ships taking multiple jumps, is that even as they receive the high tier warp drives? Can they skip some systems as their range increases or do they still warp system to system even if, for arguments sake, a ship has the range to warp from one end of the galaxy to the other.

And a final UI related question, if I wanted to play the game enjoying the full view of the ships and planets without the icons the further I zoom out, is that possible? Same question for the weapon range overlays as well for the ships.

Thanks Erik!

Still work in progress. Not sure yet on moddability but I expect it may be moddable.

Yes, better hyperdrive technology increases maximum jump range significantly.

You're asking if you can turn the UI off when you want to for more cinematic views? Yes, we're planning to add in a key for that.
