I was doing a challenge where the other player had the same race and a very similar set up. It was hard to tell what was going on as two similar sets of frigates were going at it. Which one was mine? Is his the one being destroyed? I know you can click on them, but this was a massive battle and I wasn’t getting good overall feedback.
I was thinking of having two colors per race but that seemed like a lot of work that wouldn’t have a good payout and might look awkward. Then I was thinking if your ships had a soft glow around them, but that would interfere with the authenticity of the spfx. So then I came up with a better solution: Pin-striping!This would be basically like a flag or a banner that would be placed somewhere easily recognizable on the ship. Maybe one set of ships would have a blue stripe down either side of the ship, while the “enemy” ships would have a red stripe down either side.
Something like that would not only look pretty sweet if done right, it would give players more of a feel like “these are my ships m****r f*****r!”
