You used to be able to check another players standings with NPC corps. I'm sure many people used this feature to track where someone was likely to mission. I've asked around why this feature was removed and the genearl consensus was that it caused lag.

My proposal isn't to bring this back, but however when you run a locator agent on someone, just to provide their NPC standings as well (maybe for an additional fee?).

Why exactly was that functionality removed in the first place? I liked being able to look and see what factions were friendly to a player and such, just out of curiosity.

Thats why

Also I agree.

If it was removed because of lag then fair enough but adding the standings with a locator agent would be cool

From a game-world perspective, how does it make any sense that you can simply look at the pilot's publicly available information and know how every other entity in the world feels about that pilot?

Stalk him. Watch what stations he docks in. You can get the information you really need by using a locator agent. No sense in making it easy for you.

I could support a locator agent of a particular faction telling you what the character's standings with that faction are, but not a blanket "here's how everybody feels about this guy" report.

I did hate how it completely froze my client for two seconds when I clicked the standings tab, but that's easily fixed by simply defaulting the "relationship" tab or w/e it's called instead of showing the standing with NPCs. So, definitely support bringing it back. It's useful >: (

I agree 100% that it was better to be able to see the players standings, for a few reasons. You could tell if someone was really a bear or not and tracking them was a bit easier without using an agent.
