View Full Version : Idea: Marking ships

Often, I find myself wanting to follow a ship on the map, but once I lose track of a ship, it's nearly impossible. This is both fun and useful. For example, there may be a race that I can't attack directly, but I can lead monsters and enemies to them to take them out. This could be useful for eliminating colony ships, diplomats etc.

I suggest some way to mark ships. This could be done via a consumeabe in-game ('bugging' a ship), or via some kind of meta-game interface. The ship would show up on your radar and map.

This could also lead to missions where you have to tail a ship to a meeting or some such thing.
