I agree that mining needs further tweaks. The range of the mining charges probably needs to be increased. The cost might need to be decreased.

I've been following the mining feedback thread: https://forums.kronosaur.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=7228

The new LRS is 27% of the height of the screen (but never smaller than 200 pixels). I generally run on a widescreen monitor (1920x1080), so the size of the LRS seems OK. But perhaps on a smaller monitor it is too big. I could tone it down (and/or ultimately make it an option).
I play with 1920x1080 widescreen. I was so used to seeing lots of space, then all of sudden, the upper-right part of the screen is constantly blotted out by a black hole radar I cannot shrink (or make mostly transparent). It also makes the HUD asymmetric (and I like symmetry) and ugly. While there are benefits for a bigger LRS, the drawbacks outweigh them for me.
