Hey there guys, I was warping around a system the other day when I thought this, Ok, we can hit the 'Dock' button when we are like 37.0AU away and it will say "Warping to (Station Name) prior to making docking attempt" Your ship will warp to the station and dock automatically. Well I thought there could be the same thing for Stargates, you hit the 'Jump' button and it will say "Warping to (Stargate Name) prior to jumping" - Your ship would warp to the gate and jump. It may be useless for some people, but I think it would be a good idea. It saves you having to click the 'Warp' button and then click 'Jump' - It does get boring after a while.

Another thing I wanted to talk about is that you could change the autopilot's default warp distance so that if you set to autopilot it would warp to 0m and jump. That way if say there is a 5 ship gatecamp waiting for you at one of the waypoints and you are away from the keyboard for a few minutes they would be less likely to blow you to pieces while you have to move the extra 15km to jump.

Again, I am new to the forums and I am not sure of the Rules/Policies yet so please dont flame me for making this post, I am mearly sharing my ideas.
