Fleet Nav/ECM bonus gui.
« on: November 07, 2017, 06:36:40 PM »

After playing around with large fleet without investing in combat skills I realized how important ECM and Nav bonuses are. Fighting between the same two fleets with 20% range deduction can go from a even fight to absolute steam roll. On top of that speed bonus while not as impactful is also quite important and can compound on top of range. I do feel like the importance of these stats often outweigh "plasma jets speed boost info" as are much less viewed and not cared about since it was the player who actively used it. Perhaps also allow players to see (could be character skill based) the estimated bonus before a battle. Also during a battle the ECM and Nav bonus be displayed somewhere else separate or be more visible.

The stats modifier info area is mostly a tooltip function where players can pause the game and can understand details about something, where a veteran player will often not even bother to look at. But ECM and Nav are so important that veteran players will need to glance that them more often at least.
