Look before you buy

Post by ramon »

This is probably a silly idea and might not even be much use, but hey, I'll throw it out there.

You know when you go to the shipyard and on the right is the rotating ship of the highlighted choice; wouldn't it be cool if you could click on that ship and rotate & zoom it yourself with the mouse (a bit like a 3d app).

Probably not much use but could add a bit more polish to the game.
I'd like it.

Incedently, did you know 'polish' is the only word in the english language that has a completely different meaning if you change the first letter to a capital!

You don't even have to use capitals, just change the context and the meaning is already different. ;)

't would be nice, to move models around, but not really a high priority.
