Please ditch the S3UA000XY79235767HDJG!@#$% sector naming. Real spacing is a major drag.

Is there a way to disable this?

Except for the bounty system, sector naming and nonsensical map arrangement, I enjoy almost every other upgrade over BNT. However, the sector naming and bounty system are annoying enough to really sap the fun out of the game.

Sorry, sector names have been created this way on purpose. They are randomly generated to make it harder for players to find. When you create SG's you can use the generated name or create your sector name. Look at the 3D map and there are 5 arms to it. Look at the co-ordinates for the sectors and you can work out roughly where you are on the map with out checking all of the time.

Again these things have been put in place for reasons and have been through many discussions.

Always before attacking; scan, scan and scan again. Then attack only if there was no mention of a bounty. Another check is to look at the rankings when you are logged into the game and you will see red or yellow * beside player names. 2 red (**) means a bounty, 1 red you are very close to a bounty and could get one. Yellow you are safe.

Cheers

Search the forums and you will find the reason why this was done.

It was way too easy for player to do a sequential sector search and map out every single sector. That is not realistic and allowed for many exploits. Many of these exploits are still in BNT. Also, this change has been in the game for over a year if not more than two years now.
