Observed behaviour

Pioneer crashes if I hyperspace with the sector map open, with this error:

Started hyperspacing...
error: [string "[T] @pigui/modules/system-overview-window.lua..."]:178: attempt to index field 'system' (a nil value)

Expected behaviour

I would expect it to switch to the cool HUDless hyperspace transition screen. Or better yet, as a new feature it could display an animation in the sector map showing the vessel transitioning through the hyperspace route.

Steps to reproduce

  1. Checkout the commit hash mentioned below and compile with cmake.
  2. Open Pioneer in a scenario with a spacecraft that has a hyperdrive
  3. Target a nearby star system for hyperspace.
  4. Launch, fly high enough to go into hyperspace.
  5. Hit the hyperspace button and then, while it's still counting down, open the sector map

My pioneer version (and OS):
Pioneer commit 0072a09 on Ubuntu 18.04.2 LTS x86_64

Animating it in the sector map would certainly look cool. But if that happens, care should be taken so it never implies any interacrivity regarding hyperspace travel I think.

I assume a simpler fix would just be to have the player "not exist" when in hyperspace, or forbid showing the sector view when in hyper space. have it be just a blank screen
