no time to discuss or presentation or search similar ==> for inspirational purposes for our lovely devs.

here we go:
when someone posts something into local, a chatbubble apears (looking like those in comics).
*edit: can only see that on same grid. or distance dependend.

spam needs to be handled
of course you can rename cans, but thats a mess.
cluttering the grid. (make small or in backround or optional)

removal of local becomes more reasonable.

ty for your time.

Ideas are like Seeds. I'd chop fullgrown trees to start a fire.

only if the chatting ship is immobile for 3 min to allow it to be scanned down and blown up.

Edit: And, or each additional chat gives a scan down bonus.

No. this isn't WoW, people would always miss a chat bubble because of not having any idea wtf you are unless they watch your ship the whole time chatting
