I would like to suggest something since I have problems in terms of overview during the battles.
For me it is hard to tell what type the ships are just by looking at them. Especially the difference
between Fighters/Gunships and Frigates/Destroyers.
Back in GSB 1 it was always clear on first sight if a ship was a fighter, frigate or cruiser.
In GSB 2 with the 6 sizetypes it is way harder. Ships from the same size appear in different sizes
due to being on different z-levels for example. There is also the option to change their visuals in design
which can further mess with that.
A zoomed out frigate with a alot of attached viasuals can appear bigger than a cruiser.
To adress this issue I have some ideas:
The easiest way as a minimal solution would be to include the shiptype on the tooltip where it shows the
Another idea would be a toggle-button in battle which overlays all the ships with a (tranparent) color depending
on their type. If that is too awkward to code maybe just reduce it to the shieldbubbles.
One more idea would be the use of tactical symbols on the minimap.
