Wanna see a battle?
Battle viewer is still in beta I understand and I know they're going to make big changes to it, but there is vast room for improvement. My ships don't seem to assume any particular formation and start on a flat 2D plane, in a disorganized rabble. I'd like to see 3D formations, instead of just individual starship duals and ganking. I can't assign specific ships behaviors anylonger, they just assume the behavior most appropriate to their class now. And the fighters don't behave anything like fighters, you can equip them with deathrays should you choose and they don't move much like a fighter nor do they seem to have any bonusses to evasion from what I've seen. Carriers don't currently deploy fighters in an impressive way, simply creating a screen of them when battle begins, and you can't currently customize the fighter design they use. Also the missile sprites aren't that good.
I am of course going to mod the game and make logisitcal caps much much higher because I love huge battles. But I'd like them to at least deploy in 3D space and work as a cohesive unit in the next beta, perhaps allow fine tuning of their behaviors so I can capitalize on my ship's superior battle speed. and range.
These might sound like harsh observations but I do understand this is beta and not the full version. I love watching the death rays, it's quite beautiful as you can see.
