    This paradigm shattering event has convinced me to add 'consider buying DLC' to my to-do list. I will of course wait the obligatory 5 years before doing so.

    All right everybody just calm down now. Having moved this issue to "under consideration" means that the issue has already received a considerable amount of consideration. After having considered whether or not they should consider it, considering all the other issues they should consider, they are now no longer considering whether or not to consider it but are now, in fact, considering it.

    Now we all know that when it comes to programming, nothing is as simple as it seems. I'm not optimistic. That crosshair is clearly the keystone to the whole works. Take it out and the whole thing collapses. I figure they have to come up with something they can replace it with that we can't see. I'm not sure there's anything like that out there so we just might be stuck. I think what they are actually considering is how to let us down gently. I think as a community we should show some support. We should let Keen understand that they are under no pressure so that they don't make any rash decisions.

    After all, do we want a game where the crosshair disappears along with everything else on the HUD when we press tab, or do we want a good game?

    Make up your minds, folks. Make up your minds.

    I want a new duck, one that won't try to bite; one that won't chew a hole in my socks, one that won't quack all night...

    Psssst! Not so loud! If you mention that word "crosshair" more often, that PvP pew-pew guy will notice and write here his 5 year old demands for more PvP and a considerable morass PvP space shooting game!

    Why do programmers always think we need to be warned about obvious stuff?

    Are you sure you want to exit? YES GODDAMMIT!! THAT'S WHY I CLICKED TWENTY OTHER &%^!@#!#ING BUTTONS JUST TO GET TO THIS POINT!!

    If it's a warning, I should only see it if I intentionally set the game to play ONLINE. Then I would want to know that I'm offline.

    I'm sure it's being considered.

    oh . no ... sorry (english not my first language ;) )
    i have meant i understand the joke - as i have read to (too) many posts of the "PVP is the primary SE gameplay" mantra ..
    :D
    i think PVP is an important part of SE - but only an part and realy not the "core"

    Create a bool "Remove Crosshairs with TAB key" Add it to the list under the "Crosshairs". Grey it out when crosshairs is deselected.

    It can be done... it... can... be... done... :)

    You think it's that easy, huh? Just insert a few more code words and what you want will happen. Did you think for ONE MINUTE about what happens to the crosshair afterwards? Where does it go? What does it do now that it has been kicked out? Sure, you get a nice, clean picture, but crosshair is now out of work. Ever think it might have a family? What about them? Crosshair only has one skill. You going to retrain it for today's market? Huh?

    Unintended consequences, dude.

    Too bad it takes so long most of the old players moved on already... I mean, if they had released this small grid windows like, 3-4 years ago, I will probably still playing this game more often than I do today. And I would react with a happy freak celebration if that happened. But now is like, meh! nice!

    Their argument against small grid windows was always the impact they would have on performance... but perhaps they finally accepted that the performance is terrible anyway so the impact would probably not be significant :p
