Show firing arcs BEFORE PURCHASE (e.g. on Fleet screen)
« on: May 11, 2012, 12:10:55 PM »

It's pretty frustrating to purchase a ship and not have any idea of how its firing arcs are laid out.  Maybe this could be added to the ship mouseover in the Fleet screen, shown similar to how it's presented in the Weapon Groups screen at refitting time.  Thanks.

Seconded with enthusiasm! I'm annoyed by having to guess at that prior to purchase.

And could we run simulations on unpurchased ships, too?  :O

To clarify I meant ships for sale or in storage. NOT just any ship you want.
