So even if the effective range is closer, there would be not many space-dogfights in this universe, certainly not within the range they take place in this game (10 km lol)
For me, tacking some extra zeroes onto that 10 km (or any other distance indicated in km ingame), would actually go a long way. It would be purely cosmetic, sure, but it would make the transition from light years to km's a lot less awkward, as far as I'm concerned.
