There's really only one thing that still seems awkward to me. That would be the interface for firing weapons and targeting. Especially once I need to use beam weapons in precise attacks, it seems to push me to use the pause button more than I would like.
I'd like to see it setup in this way.
Left-Click on Weapon icon:
- Fires the Weapon if charged and has a target selected.
- Powers and unpowers the weapon if it has no Target selected.
Right-Click on Weapon Icon:
- Enable/Disable targeting selection for that weapon. Targets don't reset after every shot as if it was on autofire.
Shift Left-Click on Weapon Icon
- Sets that specific weapon to auto-fire, and the button glows gold.
This would allow for pre-selecting targets. Then when weapons are charged, firing them in the order the player wishes, with only a left-click on each weapon. Not having to re-target the same area over and over again will also be a huge plus. I think this would make battles smoother, without the need for so many pauses.
Anyways, thanks for the great game!
