You know how sometimes you can see that if you fire off 4 plectrons, the third and fourth ones will hit the target that's coming across you, but not the first two? Wouldn't it be nice to have a 'don't fire this round' missile choice so you could not fire in the first two missile slots, so you didn't have to waste two missiles to get the hit?

like have an order to it - tube 1, 2, 3, 4 - and if tubes arent loaded the the firing sequence could be something like - fire, fire, pause, fire. if would also mean youd have to select which tubes to use for firing, and thus be able to contraol the order of the shots - plectrons early to slow them down followed by homing shots

That would be nice, I often waste missiles that I know won't hit while I turn to get the 2nd or 3rd pointing at the target.

unless I KNOW its a kill shot, I dont bother shooting. I will wait and try again. I rarely get lower than an 80% hit ratio, and I nearly never use more than two missile bays, unless I'm shooting at a direlict with full shields on the side I'm facing. Or a super turret/starbase. Man, I hate attacking super starbases with twelve super turrets around it. Plus escorts. I just played that one, a custom mission.
I poop, therefore I am.

I think it could simply be done without changing the graphics of the ship window at all. Missiles should be fired in the order you select them, but instead of selecting a missile you can click on a missile bay and it empties it, turning it into its reloading state for the turn(clicking again would nullify this). The order in which you select the missiles/empty bays determines the firing order.

Eg. I select a plectron, click a missile bay, click another missile bay and then select a daycorn.

The ship fires a plectron, waits, waits, then finishes with a daycorn.

This has been suggested numerous times. My suggestion is simple. When a missile is clicked, replace the missile bay icon with the missile. Then you can see the missile's position and launch sequence.
