'covered' button

Would it be nice and easy to add a 'covered' option on the gal status.
A radio button covered-uncovered (easy to switch in case there are more incs showing up a tick later) would do. Ofc this option would only be available for your own incs.
We could even go further, by having a message displayed if people send more def on a 'covered' wave. (ex: ' this wave have been marked as covered by the target, do you really want to send more def?').
When you work out a good def (my definition being a good def = the attacker lands and dies) it is frustrating to see some noob sending ships that will force the incs to recall (that's also bad for ziks ready to steal ships with their hidden prod).

Re: 'covered' button

If it's available only to your own planet, this is a very useful feature.

From PATeam's perspective, it will also make identifying possible instances of farming a bit easier, so it should get approval.

Good idea, Hut.

Re: 'covered' button

Nice suggestion.
Would also work nicely for smaller allies that have to rely on ingame features.

Re: 'covered' button

Achilles: and what tools does PA provide for a better communication ?
That's exactly what I'm trying to improve, considering not every player is using IRC (why should a player use another program in order to play PA anyway ?) and not all players have the same level of activity or even the same timezones and no Phil, I don't think being able to see at a glance which hostiles are covered makes it more complex than watching the current gal status trying to figure it out... if you meant it will add some complexity to the coding, I can't say, that's what I was asking.

Because it's damned useful, that's why.

But it shouldn't be absolutely necessary for "semi-actives" to function well in a galaxy.

That was not my question. Everybody knows IRC is usefull, the question is why such a useful tool has to be outside the game (especially a P2P game).
Real good communication tool like IRC, Bcalc and other tools should all be included in the game.
