Carrier, UI fighter indication
 
i have a question and am not sure where to post it so i'm asking it here.

Is there any chance you devs might put some kind of UI indication of how many fighters or attack ships from our carriers are in battle and how many we have left. most of the time i have no idea how many, if any are in battle and just keep sending out more without knowing if i need to. a little box with numbers we could move around the screen would be helpful.

agreed but I'll take bug fixes before this

My opinion as well!

A UI would be really nice to have, and maybe some updated commands. The current ones work well with fighters, but with shield repair drones? Nope. Not nearly as well.


But yes.... Fix the bugs first.

totally agree, we def need a how many fighters are out indicator. I use the Armitage, but in the heat of battle i cant always tell how many i have out.

Agreed. Get some major bugs fixed, but when the time comes I'd like to see a standardization and expansion of Carrier ships.

I'd definitely like to see a "pet" UI that shows us the number of fighters remaining and their status.

I'd also think it would be neat to have a new BOff type specifically for carriers, along with stations specifically for them. Ensign and Lieutenant stations for escort carriers, Lieutenant and Lt. Commander stations for flight deck cruisers, and Commander stations for high-level fleet carriers (just as an example). Call him a Wing Commander or something similar and make his abilities increase defense, damage, or heal your hanger pets. Maybe at top tiers he can generate few extra temporary fighters or something.

I know it would require some additional AI programming, but I'd love to see carrier pets that drop mines.

Advanced Slavers do on the KDF side.

A ui indicator would be brilliant, also maybe setting the fighter pets attack distance at say 2-3km so they don't constantly get blown up my dying ships
