Permit the list of pilots present (on right) to only show names/flags, ie. suppress the image (or '!' or body outline) Reason: space saving (get in twice number of pilots for same vertical space), bandwidth saving (no downloads by accident), faster access (no scrolling a fleet channel to find the pilot you need an aside with)

Potential Solutions[edit]

  • Add option to not display avatar to right-hand list of pilots present (duplicating current option to do same in left-hand chat section of same UI item.
    • Pro: Space saving, bandwidth saving, lower overhead on server, faster for user
    • Con: Addition of further menu option to all windows
