I'm joking, of course. But yes, CVs have no defensive options in the new Captain skills world. But you do have lots to work with by way of spotting power.

On the right of the center a message pops up when aircraft are spotted. On the center left it shows your CV being spotted, you're about to run into land and if your ship is being fired upon.

 

They look very similar, but there's different accompanying texts to go with them.

Personally I will revert that change (especially useful when those warnings are behind minimap ..) and will move those signs as it was, on the left side of screen center and will remove this arrow pointing to my CV, becouse it gives me nothing, but distraction.

 

And those sounds warning sounds are awful and distracting too. It's best to "tweak" what worked already well, for a new "shining", moving across screen and screaming.

Some CV related UI choices are questionable indeed. 

 

For example, I don't understand why they are now always telling me the direction where my CV is at - as if I would have to fly back there manually. 

 

And yes, if your CV Hull is surface spotted, you should get a more noticeable alarm compared to your Hull being spotted by planes or your planes being spotted all the time.

I would still love to get a CV warning the moment when the MM assigns me to a battle with the option to cancel to go to that battle... ^^

I already improved situtation with those POI indicators. I'll try today publish it on server in [0.10.0.X] OdTo GFX/UI Mod should be compatible with everything.

 

1. Planes have only 2 signs: a spot and detected icon on the right.

2. All info from CV is always on the left

3. There is no moving point behind, pointing to our CV.

4. Not needed for planes distance indicators  are removed.

5. You can choose standard zoom and next one, to zoom out instantly to ex. entire map, so if You wish You can attack in old RTS style too.

 

Now playing is much more convinient. At least for me :-

If your using Mods you need to ask for Explanations in the Respective Mods Topic.

As General Discussion People will Assume the Base Game and thus wont be able to Help you with the Symbols of a Specific Mod.

 

However.

Your Squadron and Ship have Different Symbols for being Spotted and for what is Spotting them.

Meaning you get a Symbol for:

Ship being Spotted by another Ship.

Ship being Spotted by Aircraft.

Ship being Attacked.

Planes being Spotted by a Ship.

Planes being Spotted by other Planes.

Planes being under Attack by AA.

Planes being in Range of Fighters.

Planes being Attacked by Fighters.

Strange...

Just now I saw 'carrier detected by aircraft and carrier detected by ship', no mods to change detection alerts either.

 

of course the offending object got dive bombed & citadeled.:cap_cool:
