Make remaining ammo available visible on friendly ships
« on: May 11, 2021, 01:59:59 PM »

As title says. Since now reengaging an enemy does not reload missiles or limited ammo weapons, it would be useful to know if a ship is out of ammo before deploying on the second and onward engagement or deciding if I should reengage at all. It would even be useful in the first engagement to have an indicator to know when I should retreat that gryphon or falcon P. It could be a new line under where it would display fighter replacement rate and read "ammo: xx%". On the deployment and engagement screen, it could be listed under the dp or on the mouse over info of the ship.

Use Combat Chatter mod. The ships will report if they run out of ammos.
Ammos replenish to full between engagements.

Since all my mods have poor reputation, I deem my efforts unworthy thus no more updates will be made.

Ammos replenish to full between engagements.
Not between tactical retreats and re-engagements of the same fleet. In that case any spend ammo is still spend, and there's nothing stopping you from deploying a ship that's completely out of ammo.

Combat chatter doesn't help for re-engagement. It would be better for there to be a non mod solution anyway.

Could write it in the ship's info tooltip card in combat, e.g. "2x Antimatter Blaster (31/40)"
