This needs to be revised or changed.

If a developer clearly labels a mechanic as warp to zero it should result in what it says. I know this is probably fickle but it's annoying. It should result in landing right ontop of the gate. Not 2,500km away, zero.

When you warp at 10 you get ten, 20, 20, 30, you get 30 - but with zero, nope. It's a deceptive mechanic that either needs reworking or the name changing to warp to < 2,500km.

If you actually warp to 0 wont that meant that you are actually inside the object or bounce off it by hitting it?

I think that is why you warp at ‘close to 0’. Since most people learn this in the first week of playing the game the wording as is should not cause any issue for seasoned players.

You can't warp to 0 to anything in fact, you always end up 0-3000m away from it.

Yes you would bounce off it. They could do as they do withs some stations. I.e, when you appear to be about 15km off the station but it still shows as 0km docking range. I realise 15km is way too far but the 2500km jump zone around a gate could be changed to 0. The principles are quite minor but the fact is warp to zero should always be zero. Plus if you land just outside the jump range its always possible someone can budge you out off of the gate and pwn you.
