When hovering the mouse over colored planet icons in the minimap, it would be convenient to have the planet names appear in a tooltip. That would save players from having to fly to each planet to determine which was which.
No need to physically ‘fly’ to each location to learn what’s there, simply click on the mini map, the main nav screen updates to ‘show the location’ and then simply ‘hover’ over the actual item in question.
We have discussed internally at the Dev level, the merits of adding hovers on the mini map, but it was deemed to be a rather messy solution.
PT is one of those games where over time you will begin to learn where places are but in the mean time there are simple mechanics that enable learning what’s here ‘before’ firing up the engines and moving across a system.
