|Summary||0021532: Showing what a ship type is before you hack it in an ARS (original: ARS Giving only 1x Brawler for hacking it)|
Seems like a waste of hacking points
It's on the planet to the south of my homeworld.

||That's operating as coded. Frigates from ARSs are limited to granting 1 or 2 units only because I was worried about balance. Keep in mind that if you're already investing a bunch of tech in that direction then you'll get a cap of 3 or 4. As to whether it's the best use of your hacking points, I don't know.|
It's a frigate? That changes my opinion on the ship granted, I had assumed that Brawler meant some kind of variant of the Vanguard, a high hp strikecraft. Having just one Vanguard would be useless for a slot, unless you use that slot to stack powerful ship types into one transport.
I guess the solution to this issue is to wait until Chris / Someone implements a ship dictionary (ala F1 menu from the first game) or other ship stat viewing GUI.
||Yeah, I definitely would like both the ship stat viewing GUI and the ability to see how many increased stats you get for a gicen unit for a tech upgrade.|
Weaponmaster, note I have repurposed this bug report to be about adding appropriate UI to let players see what a unit type is that's only mentioned in hovertext.
If I see a name I don't recognize offered by a GCA/new flagship/ARS/etc then the only way to know what that is to capture/hack the thing or read the XML. A lot of times I might have a particular need in my fleet ("I need more tankiness" or "I need something to help take out that Superfortress"), so it's desirable to know which thing I haven't taken yet might provide that.
* "Toggle Stop-To-Shoot" is no longer bound to the "C" key. Instead, that is now bound to K.
* The "C" is now used as a new keybind called "Hold And Click To View Details Of Contents"
** Hold this key down when clicking a button or a ship in order to view the details of any ships contained within that clicked item (ships in a wave, ships in a transport, ships in a fleet, ships improved by a tech).
** This is SUPER important for finding out what the actual stats are of ships that otherwise would just be a list of names.
* The selection logic for the galaxy map view has been moved into the external open-source code, and will soon be able to be a lot more flexible like people have been asking for.
** Previously it was embedded in a way that made those other bits impossible, but no longer!
* The new "Details Of Multiple Ship Lines" screen is able to be shown for ships that you C-click directly, or on the sidebar, or on the galaxy map.
** But only if they actually have something of relevance to show!
** Right now it shows the details of ships that a GCA or ARS would grant, that are part of a fleet that you could capture but have not yet, or which are inside an AI reinforcement point (guard post), or which are being transported inside a fleet.
