I've been looking forward to smaller buttons for quite a while. A bit sad they can only be colored though (not labeled).

What's the reasoning for players to decomission ships? As in, is there any penalty to owning an excessive number of ships?
Will ships automatically decommission if they are spawned but unused for a certain amount of time (like a week)?
I like the addition, but am wondering why players would decomission their own ships?

I appreciated being able to clear wrecks and bugged ships out of my ship list. Before you had to bother community managers for that. If you have a wreck that you're not going to recover, decommissioning it also allows other players to salvage it if they want (or I imagine it should, even inside a safezone, given it no longer has an owner). In the future, when the transponder system is more developed, it will probably also change the ship's transponder registry data to reflect the change in ownership (and identify it as freely salvageable).

The only reason I can think of besides uncluttering is gifting ships right now.
