Just a few points from a player point of view.

Please keep no internet connection required.

All screens throughout the game: U=Undock D=Done
St Kats is particularly annoying when you continually end up at the University when trying to undock.

Set show/hide dock service items to "show" as default instead of "hide" or make the text larger at the bottom of the dockscreen. I found this very confusing initially.

Having the HUD "on" as a default at game start is good.

Thanks again for such a great game.

HUD?

I'm not sure what you mean here. On the other things, I agree.

The HUD that's off by default in the map view.

Still drawing a blank. What key do you use to turn it on?

HUD seems to be visible by default when I go to system map screen. When I press 'H', the HUD disappears.

In previous versions (1.1 for sure, not sure after that) the HUD wasn't on when you started the game. You had to manually scan for friendly and enemy stations. You couldn't scan unless the HUD was on. It was an annoying thing because you missed stations if you didn't notice the HUD was off. Not really relevant anymore with the automatic detection of stations, but still worth a thumbs up, I thought.

I can confirm that.
