People have said that its frustrating and confusing not knowing how much (if any!) damage your weapons do. I agree, and thus I’ve experimented with floating damage numbers.

Text never comes out well in videos. It looks better ‘live’. I’m making it a graphical option, and it toggles off with the UI switch anyway.
What do you think? I think this is MUCH better than having nothing, and just guessing based on the visual effects. Especially for situations like beam lasers reflecting, or for fighters attacks bouncing off armor inside a shield bubble.
I’m very tempted to add this in the next patch (maybe after 1.40) which will be all about usability and learning the game more easily.
