[Suggestion] "Thank you" Signal for Helm
« on: March 30, 2014, 02:37:05 pm »
As a pilot that doesn't always have access to a mic, I use signals a lot. I often feel somewhat rude simply shouting orders at my crew when I don't have time to type something out.

My suggestion is to add a new helm signal for courtesy remarks. There's a spot for it right here:



This could a single command, which offers a audio / text "Thank you!" that a person at the helm can use to thank a crew member for performing a given action.

Or, it could be a menu that gives a few different friendly remarks including "Thank you!", "Good job, crew!", "Nice shot", "Give 'em hell!", or the like.

I see there is also a few gaps in the gun menu that could be similarly leveraged, but I think that's less important than the helm signals.

I looked in game and on various forums for any help related to signals, but didn't find any.

So I made my own! If you are looking at signals anyway with respect to my request above, feel free to provide some feedback on this:

(Also, feel free to crib from it if you want to add any docs on signals to the in-game tutorials or what not).

Nice work on the signal guide.  There was also a similar topic posted about crew commands a few months ago: https://gunsoficarus.com/community/forum/index.php/topic,2960.0.html
