Suggestion: Remote diagnostics

PolaricEntropy 3 years ago updated by Tyler Owen (Lead Developer) 3 years ago 3

It would be nice if you can interface your datapad with modules you've visited before to run remote diagnostics. That way you can monitor WayPoint stations and if they are about to fail without having to spend a day trying to reach them. For hab modules it's certainly nice but not super important as you can just run around quickly before you go out/inside and each each of them individually. Would also be nice if failed things would show up on the map in some way (perhaps greyed out).

I've wondered about how I might want to implement something like this. I'll give it another look and see what I can come up with. Thanks for the suggestion.

Discovered WayStats, being what they are, should be selectable as waypoints the same way habitats are. And then, piggybacking on this functionality, the selected WayStat could display its slot states (let's say, basic telemetry of the selected beacon is encoded into its signal for remote monitoring) on a small overlay next to its icon on the map.

That's a unique solution. I'll experiment with it and see what I can do.
