Really liking the UI changes gradually becoming more icon object orientated. Not that your making an OS within a game hehe. That's actually a neat idea, its been done a few times not all that often like where you have a small intranet within a game. Prob alot of work im guessing. All that stuff is great it makes the game more user friendly.

Im guessing you read the steam forums so i wont bother talking about some of the issues that need addressing. Keep going games starting to shape up :)

Also, i just noticed under the game options there's now a link to take players to the data privacy page. Im not sure if this is optional but i want to say very good to have it there. Transparency is important in today's world.
