There was a thread about how units talk under certain circumstances. From there I'm thinking if it would be a good idea if you can see the pilot of the units in the UI too like Warcraft and Starcraft does?
As of now we can only see a picture of that selected unit. With that in mind I'm thinking maybe we can have a similar satellite view to replace that? From there you can 'actually' see the units physical appearance and perhaps a bit of its surrounding too, along with the volley of shots thrown and took as far as the little box allows to do so.
Although I'm a bit worried at one part where say an air unit 'gets in the way of the view' of the selected ground unit but that can be fixed by putting some transparency for the unit blocking the view. Finally this idea might be a bit taxing for the computer. Thoughts?
