Minor change, but in my opinion something that could be helpful. Sometimes can't tell at a glance if the weapon I'm trying to fire is actually firing or not.  ;D

Awesome idea 100% supporting this, no drawbacks, just pure QoL.

That would be an awful lot more convenient than pausing a fight, zooming in all the way to check my ship for slightly darker/sparking weapons, manually resetting the camera back to what it was and unpausing again.

This is a fantastic idea! And I'm sure Alex and the whole developer team will feel the same way!

Adopt a mod! (Or parts of it) I'd be happy if Biomancy Genetic Engineering found a new patron or if my little monsters appear in some form or another in someone's mod.

That sounds perfectly reasonable, right now the indication is not clear enough to notice when you are in an intense battle.
