# 1 Carrier Suggestion / Idea
06-26-2012, 08:24 AM
Just a suggestion from a new carrier owner... When I launch my fighters (especially in the 15 person events on tribble), I have no idea if my fighters are still up or destroyed. What I would suggest (and like to see) is a small little box on either side of my monitor telling me how many fighters I have deployed and how many are still flying and how many have been destroyed (not cumulative but out of the six i'm able to have out a a time, how many are left).

I would love for this as well, a counter or having players names under the ship name, similar to how player ships display the player name, fleet and vessel name.

I've got the Atrox Carrier and the Heavy Escort Carrier. And yes i agree that a small Box showing some info on the deployed hangar crafts would be a good idea.
It could look like this

Hangar 1: 5/6
Hangar 2: 2/4
So basicly showing the amount of craft deployed per hangarbay.

And perhaps a icon or a box around our hangar crafts. So that i know wich ones are mine.
Cause sometimes you might be grouped with multiple carriers and then it's definatly usefull to know wich ones are yours and how many you've got left.

Instead of a icon or box we could also perhaps be given the Option to Name our HangarBay Crafts so that in general we could name them Red Wing and then for every deployement of 2 or 3 crafts it would gain a Number 1 or 2.
Then the Box with the info could look like

Red Wing 1: 2/3
Red Wing 2: 1/3
Blue Wing 1: 1/2
Blue Wing 2: 2/2

It would definatly help . And make it a little easier to track our hangarcrafts so that we don't lose damage by over deploying wings . Since it takes sometime for fresh crafts to engage in combat when their being launched out of the bay.

This part is on Tribble right now... you can turn off friendly mines and fighters (along with the enemy ones, although that would be dumb) and you can have it so the target box only shows around your own mines and fighters.

I do agree, that a small info box (or an overlay on the launch icon that say x/max # (eg 3/6)) would be great.

i would also love it if say you have both hangers the same launcahble. IE both have Advance runabouts. and one squadron has 4, the other 4 were destroyed, is if when both hangers are the same it would pool the launcahbles meaning you could launch eaqch hanger once to bring yourself back upto full strength instead of launching hanger 2, wait for the cool down and launch it again.

I myself am new to the whole fighter carrier thing and second the motion of having a fighter count somewhere on the HUD to help us keep track of how many we have so we can keep up the pressure.

This is a great idea. It should also apply to pets that detache from the ship like saucer sections and aquarious escorts. We shouldn't have to swivel the camera all around to see if they are still alive or not.

They need to give us a real pet interface in space. I would like to be able to monitor the health of small craft, but I also want to be able to monitor the health of deployed craft, saucers, etc. and photonic fleet and fleet support vessels. more importantly, We need to be able to command all of our pets, not just what launches from the hangar.

# 10 Dilitium Fed Carrier
07-05-2012, 09:04 AM
Okay the fed are staring to catch up to the KDF in carriers. still missing 2 a dilithium carrier and an engineer carrier. My suggestion it the dilithium be an Ambassador variant and Engineer maybe a another Galaxy use, (please fix the neck on your model is off) or create your own design, please do a good job on that some of your design are crap.
