That said, the maps/scanner/tricorder system is completely broken and must be overhauled.
On more than one occasion, what should be a simple mission has turned into a nightmare of hide and seek because the maps are nearly functionless and there is no way to find anything without directly looking at it by visual contact.
I have been trying to play the fluidic space mission segment, 'Time to surface', In the course of protecting the ship in fluidic space, I lost sight of it while defeating the Undine. I have not been able to find the ship I was to escort out. I have flown back and forth through fluidic space, methodically looking for it to no end.
I should not have to try this. The damned thing should be on my map and labeled. At the very least my scanner should indicate a direction.
I have gotten to the point to where my respawn wont event let me have direct visual contact.
The map system needs to be fixed right away. It is easily the worst part of the game. I should be able to find things with all of the 25th century technology at my disposal.
Please move this serious error up to a significant priority.
