C# Aurora / Re: Box Launcher Reloads
« Last post by ardem on Today at 09:23:41 PM »
I just want the new system to not increase the amount of micromanagement it takes to reload box launchers.  I do not like the idea of having to assign motherships and land every ship I build in a hangar just to reload my launchers.  It's not the logistics of it that bothers me; I don't mind building the hangars.  I just really don't want any more things to manage that don't really add anything.  There's already a huge amount of clicking to do simple things, please don't make it worse.

I want to add on what I suggesting, the facility I was talking about should be all maintaining and cargo loading should be auto done in orbit much like it is now for 6.0 no micro management, it should be as easy as orbiting the planet as we do now. Also the facility should auto restock itself from the planet if it can, that way you do not need to look after it. the hangar is not for loading its just that fighter that need hangar not to incur maintenance can be accomplished. Its not for bigger ships. Also the facility like shipyards should be expanded easily not like ships trying spaceport where you have to make it in a shipyard first. But I agree as little micro for maintenance as possible

I really like how easy maintenance is now in 6, I do not want it harder I would like it more fleshed out with a facility without engines that can be tugged to other sites if needed.

I would try to make their behavior highly driven by a large set of parameters that could be accessible on the backend.  I would think quite a few players would be interested in tweaking and optimizing.  Add that and a way to add in some scripts, and you could get the community to do a lot of work helping with AI development.

In the US Cities ship name theme, New York City appears twice.  Once as "New York" and again as "New York City".

Any where a character name appears, a double click should open the character page with the record for the character selected displayed.  It takes me so long to award medals right now.

In a similar vein, a text box on the TG form to add a note to all existing characters' histories assigned to the group.  Maybe in the naval organization tab, so you could even do it by branch. That way you could bulk add notes like "Participated in battle if Gleiss 128" or whatever.

For the interceptor, I recomend changing the fire control to resolution 1 and adding a tiny res 1 active sensor. That way, you can actually provide missile defense as well.

Suggestion:

On the task group window, allow us to filter task groups by task force.  Currently the task group dropdown can get pretty cluttered and there is no good way to clean it up.

Allowing us to filter by task force would both help this problem and would make task forces more useful.

A few suggestions:

1)  Color code possible targets Red/Yellow/Green for Hostile/Neutral/Allied, plus pop an "are you sure" dialog if firing on neutral or allied.

2)  Facilitate bulk/batch assignments with highlight:
  a) allow multi-selections of the same type (e.g. launchers); if any from a group are dragged to a fire control, then all are added to that fire control.  Ditto for fire controls dragged to a target, PD modes dragged to a fire control, etc.
  b) generalizing this, allow multi-selections of both dragged items and drag targets simultaneously, e.g. select 8 launchers and 2 fire controls, then hit a "assign uniformly" button that will assign 4 launchers each.
  c) add buttons to add all items of a type to the current selection, e.g. all fire controls or all launchers or all targets (probably requires a selection of a nationality or Task Group) see below.  Idea is to be able assign all launchers to all fire controls in 3 clicks if it makes sense.

3) Range and/or Task Group identification and/or grouping on target list will probably be VERY useful.  I assume right now the target list shows everything in the system, even if it's way out of range.  Probably good to have them sorted by range (from currently selected TG), and have highlighting based on in or out of range for various weapons to make range filtering easy.

4) I would be great to be able to save configurations (bindings of launchers to fire controls and/or bindings of missiles to launchers) on a per-ship or per-class level (probably per-class).  That way you only need to configure these things once, then you can just worry about which FC aims at which target.  If you did this, a lot of the stuff above drops in priority, because these bindings will be changed/created infrequently.

That's all I can think of for now.  Overall it looks great!!

Hey Steve,

Two things I'd like to see.

1. Next to the potential target list, can we get a range to target from the selected ship or task group. Accurate to two decimal places would be enough for me.

2. In the Point Defence section, I cannot see where you would put the distance to engage.

After logging in after a long time away (years?) i had a HUGE bank of notifications of thread mentions and what not scroll up on the right side of the screen. I clicked the first one, found a thread I'd participated in (years?) ago, and then missed all the rest of the notifications.

Is there another way to find them?  ???
