Could we get an UI element to let us know how many fighters we have out and their health status please? The things are so small, they get lost in large battles and it is hard to know if they are ok or need to be relaunched or not.
I would love this as well. Champions has one so i dont see why STO shouldn't steal it for the pets here either. Personally i wouldn't mind getting some kind of fighter like control over the MVAE or Saucer as well, some times those things are not the smartest.
Thats all I want! Just some dots for pete sake!. make the dots cycle from green to red as they get closer to death. Have the red ones de-cycle when you press the launch key, replacing them with fresh fighters.
We definitely need more status panels. One for pets is a given; a slim shield/hull bar would be fine, or something even simpler than that. Some representation of the pet type would be helpful, too, if you're usuing multiple at once.
Another panel for mission-specific ships would be nice, too, such as for STF's.
Simply put: more info, please. All the data is there. It shouldn't be hard to write a panel around it. =/
A pet status panel is sorely needed. I rarely ever have a clue what as to what my fighters are up to or how they are doing and pretty much just spam launch them as soon as the CD is up in heavier battles.
I don't recommend activating brackets for fighters. Once you get into fights with carriers your screen starts to look like a mess.
