Possible to hold galaxy map still?

#1 Post by Magnate » Sat May 23, 2020 10:42 am

Every time I click on a system named in the sitrep, the galaxy map moves so that the system I just clicked on is in the centre of the screen. Can I change this behaviour? What I want is for the system to be selected - for its panel to pop up and for it to have the rotating ring round it on the galaxy map - but I don't want my map centred on it. I zoom and position my map carefully so I can see all the systems I need to, and this behaviour means I have to reposition it every time. I've looked in the options but I can't find anything along the lines of "don't centre galaxy map on selected system"...

There is no such option, but one could relatively easily be added and checked here and similar locations for other zoom functions.
