I would love it if you leave the station at Sol that you could choose to just bypass the solar system. As it is, unless your hanging out in the Sol system just to chat everyone leaves the station then goes right on exit to sector.
An option to jump right over the second loading screen would be spiffy. Not critical of course but I would dig it.
On a somewhat related topic when you guys load in to a system does the NPC in the chat windows always start off with a plain uniform and such then a second later update to what they should look like?
