Game Start Screen / Game Menu

Would it be possible to have :
- the game display the "More Options" bar on left side automatically the same way as youtube does for example (if there is enough place the menu bar is shown else hidden)
- a list of our different colonies instead of the last one only

Hey nonoboss, I think it is best to have that menu bar hidden until the "more options" is clicked because it would save space on all device, even if one device had more room than the others.

Also, I think that it is really convenient to have just our recent colony on the main menu instead of all of them. Too many things on the main menu screen would clutter it up and make it look bad, and that's why bast added the load option. I mean, you have a load menu with your entire list of colonies just one click away from the main menu, it's not like you have to punch in a passcode every time you want to see your list of colonies, just one click is all it takes.

Also, you forgot to add a yes or no poll

thats the point of showing it if there is space and hide it if not (most computers, at least mine, the screen is empty).

Well may be not all colonies but 4 or 5 might be better than one

The game doesn't know which ones are yours. The server only sees colonies linked to a chartercode.

I just think that it would complicate the menu more than it has to be. Sometimes simple is better than complex. Too much going on can confuse new players.

Nunez, he is just talking about the main menu for my colony. The game will know which colonies are yours because they are saved on your local drive. The game only knows which game you played last and put's that up top, it has nothing to do with any servers or charter codes because this happens even when there is no internet access and any dependent colonies don't have charter codes.
