- Display Shipnames in the bottom pane, where the selected & targeted ship are displayed.
Enemies would probably only have one design per hull, so the hull name is fine there. Or you make flavor name lists for enemy shiptypes
My own ships usually have a custom name, like Hulltype + Revision (e.g. Torpedo DD MK III)
- Better visibility for shield, armor, structur etc strength. I don't like the slim bars. Maybe thicker bars and the established glyphs for armor, strucuture, crew, etc.
- The folding tree with command words (move, board, retreat) looks oddly out of place compared to the rest of the nice GUI.
At least make them look like buttons, not plain text.
- make the torpedo animation as fast as missiles or close to. Currently they are painfully slow to watch.
(Yes, yes I know, there is Benny Hill mode in the options
Oh and torpedos are currently fired silent. Makes my earth shattering kaboom barrage from my Torpedo DD fleet somewhat underwhelming.
