Re: Crew Rank Ups

No it doesn't. The ftl recharge stops completely if piloting is unmanned. Manning the engines has no effect.

Re: Suggestion: Suggestion Forum!!! and 2 UX things

In my opinion, the interface needs two additions: a keyboard hotkey that activates cloaking, and a button you can click with the mouse to pause.
