I don’t know if this has been discussed but it occurred to me it would be useful to have two different targeting systems.
- could be used for targeting a friend in order to stay in fixed/chase/match formation with them while at the same time -
- could be used for targeting an enemy at the same time.
So it would be possible to target a friend for formation purposes, at the same time as targeting an enemy with weapons.
This would mean, you could fly in a loose formation with allies while also having the lead reticle for enemy ships and also be able to target them with torpedoes/missiles.
This would be useful and interesting for smaller ships escorting capitol ships for example - something I have tried manually which lead to this thought of how useful some assistance would be with the process from the ships computer in game.
I think it could be done in a fairly intuitive way, by toggling an option on or off to enable this feature.
