This is a thing that i would REALLY like the devs to add to the UI.

Especially with the new sectorspace, you may easily be going almost straight up or down without knowing it! I need something to help me determine if i'm horizontal. A simple line with an indicator on it will do just fine, like this:

--
|
|
|<
|
|
--

Where the < indicates your ships current pitch.

I'm sure all of you have had the same problem when going for the satelite repair at Deferi Outpost 3. You set your direction using the minimap, and and up several kms above/below the satelite.

Wouldn it be easier to just turn astrometrics back on for a sec?

no... and in maps like deferi op3 this is not an option anyway... also, this should be the easiest feature ever for Cryptic to implement.

Ships have always auto leveled themselves in terms of roll, but there needs to be a way to do it in pitch as well. /signed

If you fly in Chase mode /Showcampos 1 displays the heading vectors.

i fly in 'free camera' mode, but it still works. However, i don't like the number spam on top of my minimap. I'd rather have a tiny graphical representation indicating my pitch.

I agree that there should be an inclination meter. I hate having to guess my angle in most instances, and It is cumbersom to use planets and other celestial objects to "dead reckon" from.
