Instead of making us press a button to do so. I don't know if the functionality exists yet because I haven't been able to get it to work. I fly over the gold star, the message displays saying to press R to Loot, I press R and nothing. I tried remapping the key to Keypad Enter but still nothing, so maybe it doesn't work, but I'd prefer the setup in S'Seas where you sail/fly over the destroyed ship (or get really close to it) and the story box pops up asking what you want to do. That felt a lot more in line with the way the rest of the game was built anyway.

Except for the fact that right now its not working for me, lol. You're right, its super minor, but still the way I'd prefer it.

[edit] just re-read the known issues page (http://www.failbettergames.com/sunless-skies/known-issues/) and I think the reason looting wasn't working for me is I encountered the bug where if you open the Esc menu while the Chart is on screen, hotkeys stop working.

I've skimmed right past salvage before I could press R. Having to slow down to pick up salvage increases travel time and supply consumption. It'd also just be a nice quality-of-life change, because is there any conceivable circumstance where you'll want to not at least take a look at the salvage? Not to mention the fact that it wouldn't be a huge project - as vulchor mentioned, they already did it in Sunless Sea.
