I was playing yesterday, which actually means I was designing ships for an hour and a half (1.5 hrs). During that 1.5 hrs of “playing” I literally wrote down stats and tables comparing my cruisers, frigates, and finally fighters. I did this because I want a kicking fleet that’ll be powerful, yet efficient. Can withstand damage, but is also modestly price. Their are literally so many combinations for this game, that I kept changing designs. From then on, I kept wishing I had a way to compare 2, or maybe 3 cruisers at a time to compare things like cost, speed, armor, weight, et al. A sidebar, kind of like in Galactic Civizations 2 planet sidebar, that compared all of my classes of ships. I want to know what kind of damage each of my ships is doing. I need a way to really see if my ship can survive a full on assault, yet take down some shields. Comparison makes for best decisions, but there really isn’t a way to do that.
I realize that I might be asking for a lot, but I just want this game to rule even more than it already does. I love this game, and I’ve turned into a total forum geek because of it.
