Sneak Peek

Here is a sneak preview screenshot of what I have been working on lately for the game:

It is a "formation manager". Currently, when you start a game, your ships are all positioned in a "line abreast" formation and you can control the direction they all face, but that is about it.

With this tool, you will be able to create as many formations as you like and save them to your user profile. You create the formation by placing ship classes into specific locations and facings. Then when you start a battle, you can choose the formation you want your ships to start in. The game will automatically pick ships from your fleet to fill in the "slots" you have designated in the formation.

I think this will add a small layer of tactical planning to battles as well as add some individuality and coolness to the game :)
