Ok this whole discussion started because some people pointed out that the visibility on 3D spheres is bad. I would say it is something you need to get used to. People suggested to use Pip or pole lock. I personally prefer screen hotkeys. Pole lock just makes me prefer one direction (east-west) over another (north-south), which limits my opportunities. I havent found a use for Pip yet, maybe fixing a nuke, so you can select it while the main screen is where you want to shoot it. But apart from that? How is Pip superior to just simply using screen hotkeys? What do you use Pip for? I dont understand why people think it is so incredibly good... Screen hotkeys are incredibly fast, you can spread them over multiple planets and you dont need pole lock because they readjust your view after scrolling around (which is better for me because I still use the other directions). This solution works for me but I had to try different things until I saw that I prefer screen hotkeys and that they help me. But it took some hours. So maybe a minimap (even if it is distorted) would help some people. I dont think I would need it but it just gives players another option. But I dont think it is a big priority. I think that people that complain about difficult controls just need more time to adjust. I think when a game does something different, people need to give it some time. In the past some RTS had left-click orders and I was really annoyed when I first played a game with right-click orders because I was so used to the old system.
