On ratting in half a dozen different ships yesterday, the one thing I found perplexing is why the ship ‘minimum target range’ is nowhere displayed in the ship HUD. I mean, yes, it displays falloff range, etc for each weapon…but nowhere does it display the actual minimum target range. That is only displayed in the ship fittings, which is not really something you want to have to be bringing up in the middle of combat.
It is something vitally important to know before you start charging in on half a dozen ships. We’re in the 230th century, and it is bizarre that Captain Kirk has to rely on a post-it note on the console to tell him his ship has a minimum target range of 60km. One should not have to wait until the crosshairs light up before knowing that is the targeting range.
