Feedback and Suggestions / Re: [suggestion] Ship's Minimap

1. It doesn't make too much sense from a steampunk perspective. Already the indicators are a little heavy on the UI side (but obviously necessary or else engineering would be a nightmare), but a full ship HUD overview seems like something that would fit in a sci fi game (like EVE or Star Citizen, etc) and not in a steampunk kind of lowtech setting.
I'd imagine the engineers would have blueprints for the ship.

And I imagine engineers just feel the engine vibration and sound, the creaking of armor plating, the air whistling past the balloon and smell fires in general.
And for an irl example, a lot of the time you can tell exactly what's wrong with an engine just from the sound.

While the floating status icons for engine/armor/weapon/balloon damage/fire are helpful, a lot of the time they are a big mess and don't provide much information.
I was thinking that perhaps a minimap/blueprint of the ship with all the modules displayed might be an option. Just a small idea conceived past midnight...
