Yes, please! Modifying the UI to fit my playstyle and get my interface just the way I like it would be great. UI modding adds a whole 'nother aspect to games to keep us interested. Cryptic is incredibly strong on customization--let's see just how far that commitment goes!
See I think this is the type of thing that should be 100% barred from happening with addons. You don't want the game to play for you. Hell with these types of scripts you could write an "optimal" damage script and have it automated. Then you just point and press a button. Bad idea overall from a game standpoint.
Heck, couple that with a script to continuously reinforce forward shields and you have the equivalent to a bot.
Addons are great when they're for UI things, but horrible when they automate gameplay.
Starship control is different. This mmo is a bit different. You are the Captain of a starship. You have a crew to command. If I command my tactical officer to open fire then I should not have to stand over him to make sure he pushes the buttons. If I tell my engineering officer to keep my shields up then he should be able to do that without me having to command him all the time, etc.
While I do think there should be some button pushing YOU are a Starship Captain. You Command. Your crew is as good as you have trained them to be. Ground combat is different.
