The Commanders log IS limited to 750 characters. Why did we do this?
Well first we absolutely wanted a commanders log function, so we created one. Then we added the quick add function to quickly add important system news. However, we did not want to make it so you just jump from system to system adding the local news, that would make the commanders log way too large and diminish its usefulness. So…. we capped it at 750 characters, this way you need to manage the data you actually store in your log. Just as you have to manage your ship and we think it really fits nicely within the current game.
We will be adding a notice to alert new users so that if they use the quick add function and are going to loose data in their current log, they can cancel the quick add and review the log.
