Summary[edit]

Allow broadcast targets to be target-locked using Ctrl+Click; ideally provide context menu options for orbiting and other options similar to Overview.


Solution[edit]

When a target is broadcast in the Broadcast History, Ctrl+Click should lock the subject of the broadcast, whether the broadcast is someone calling for reps or is an item being designated as a kill target. As a further enhancement, enable a right-click menu for Broadcast History items that includes options similar to the Overview, e.g., target and orbit. This avoids the need to pick that target out of a cluttered overview.


Pros[edit]

  • Reduced clicking overhead for logistics pilots
  • Improved fleet coordination
  • Less cumbersome targeting, especially in large fights

Cons[edit]

  • Possible lag from context menu
