    I frankly like the scratched windows, nothing is perfect let alone glass on ships that go hurdling through space colliding with dust, little space rocks, entering atmospheres, and getting shot at by all manner of weapons.

    The problem is the texture doesn't stretch across other windows meaning they all have exactly the same scratches.

    This will be fixed in time I'm sure, perhaps with damage models for the windows but some people just get really offended by it...

    That's right, offended about a texture...of glass...in a game...that's clearly a placeholder.

    The scratches should be a damage state. Even for you nonsensiclaly hardcore realism nuts, they don't exactly build things like the space shuttles and such with haggled together piles of crap, hobbled together with duck-tape, using the old parts of grandpa's go mobile. They precision engineer and craft every piece from scratch, to order, and you better believe, dare they mess up a sigle piece, even a nik in some cases they make a replacement for their folly. Especially if it's a higly integral part to the construct.

    Why on earth wouldn't the glass be pristine to begin with. Makes no logical sense

    Also makes no sense that BULLETPROOF GLASS can be easily scratched, especially the kind that shrugs off autocannon rounds. I find it hilarious that people who are arguing "realism" think that this glass can be casually scratched by dust when it can withstand multiple shots from gatling guns firing rounds that no "bulletproof glass" should ever have any business defeating ever. Over time? Yes I can see that happening. But we're talking something on the level of months to years before we're getting the level of scratches that we see in the game.

    The energy level of space debris can be way higher than a bullet. Even a grain of sand can hit like a truck given enough velocity.

    I stopped caring about the windows when I realized that the new window blocks will have new textures anyway.

    Place a Beacon sometime and turn it off. Imagine something like that, but all over.
