Hi ya'll.

A window underneeth the overview that displays all the states your ship is in. Since These things are already displayed in different way, like the small box that appears when scrambled (you have no way of seeing it with all weaponsfire).

Just a small window, displaying the basics, no numbers or anything just if:
you are warped scrambled, not trying to.
you are jammed, not trying to.
you are webbed.
you are dampened, maybe display your res and targeting range?
(and also other states)

These things are pretty good to be able to see fast in pvp and today there is no real way. And uhm, make them like flashy and in different colors so you know what's happening :)

I guess what I'm asking for is what otehr games would call buffs and debuffs in an organized manner.

another thing to address would a be a way to "self check" your aggression timer
maybe an actual valued timer, maybe just a state indicator. The PVP logout timer as well these things would help in solo pirating unmeasurably so.

Dont need to be a pvp'er to like this idea, its simple and since you get webbed and warp jammed by npc's it would be help everyone that is combat oriented. How about a setting in overview that adds a box to ships that are doing some kind of jamming, color set by user but shows enemy ships that are warp, webbing, or whatever so teamates can react accordingly.

I have to admit that even I like this idea - I've lost several ships by not seeing i'm webbed etc...

This should have been in the game since launch. Would help you know how to fit against players and what the heck is actually happening to you.

Signed.

I could've sworn that this came up at least six months ago, when they were testing the warp scrambler overhaul on Singularity. However, I have searched long and hard and I don't see it anymore. Does anybody else remember this?

Hmm, I like it alot.

Here is my idear, when you are affected by an enemy then in the tactical view you will se coloured lines between you and the enemy that is affecting you. So eg. a red line would be firering, green for webbed, orange for scrambeled etc.

This would make it SO much easier to know when you are affected plus you get to deside if you want the info. If you don't then just stay out of the tactical-view.

This NEEDS to be done!

Although, i'd prefer anohter position for them to be displayed, perhaps just the active module (e.g. warp scrambler) instead of a whole window, just above the ship control panel. With gang/drones/overview, there's not much space left for another window.

or maybe make the warp/engine speed meter flash red (for scramble) or yellow (for web) ? :)
