Yeah, I didn't expect absolute realism. But I would like to see a 2D HUD in the hangar (on a wall, on a table...don't care). You go to it, select your items assign them to hardpoints and then you see drones swooping out and updating the ship....much like refueling and repairing at CryAstro.Not that I know of.
There's a lot of things in this game where manual control of things typically handled by spreadsheet interfaces in other games really aids in immersion and fun, but I don't think this is one of them.
If this was realism, it would take a whole crew of guys or robotic arms to install this stuff on the ships. It's just something I don't think they should waste their time on trying to make more realistic in the hangar.
And this is just the beginning - eventually we'll have dozens of different types of components to equip on the ship. How long will it take to walk through a Starfarer to every component / get at just the right angle so you can access the dot / select from a massive scrolling list.
I would have been happier if they would have just copied HoloXplor's interface layout.
(BTW rivet....looks like the Aurora got a 38% health drop in 2.4)
Much better than this hand waviuum poof! a Panther on a hardpoint appears thing.
Yeah, I have an Aurora, but not worried. It'll be buffed next patch (and then nerfed, then buffed, etc.).
