The Mk I version of shields, engines, etc should go to the left of the Mk II versions. As it is, the Mk I is after the Mk III. Speaking of that, I’d like to have a little ‘I’ ‘II’ ‘III’ in the lower corner of the icons so I don’t have to mouseover. BTW, mouseover should be instant, no delay, on that screen.
Instead of bunching up the icons in a 5x5 grid, why not break them up by category? Have a line for beam weapons, another for missle, another for torpedo, special, etc?
I’d like to ctrl-drag an already installed part to make a copy of that part in another slot.
ctrl-drag would be nice, but the I, II, III on the icon would be simpy -wonderful-.
Can I request a few extra for things like shields that also come in Fast charging and Reflective versions?
Maybe P for powered armour also.
I’m modding the icons now, let you know when I have something.
All suggestions seconded.
Creating a ship and getting the needed infos takes longer than it should right now.
In addition to having a visual indication of weapon tier I would very much like to be able to sort the icons/modules according to a single stat. E.g. order by cost or by shield penetration or by shield strength… simply by clicking on that stat in the stat area below, perhaps?
I am now very much tempted to make a spreadsheet with all module stats to do some comparison and get a grip on them.
Even more ideas/wishes:
Add core ship stats like HP, shields, shield DPS, armor DPS to the ship’s pop-up info (when you move the mouse over the ship) - I am going slowly mad inventing ever new descriptive names…[/]
Add visual representations of stats, e.g. colored bars relative to the numeric value[/]
Add a way to compare the (overall) stats of two designs side-by-side[/]
BTW and since this is my first post: GREAT GAME!
I would LOVE to be able to add notes to my ships on the edit ship screen - stuff like how it performs against whatever, optimal range mixes and orders, theory, that kind of thing. :3
Seconded (thirded? fourthed?). A sortable list of components would be great for those times when you’re looking for a certain special something.
