Not if you still have to zero the throttle to use it. I don’t care if it’s a HUD overlay or if it’s got its own interface, the issue is having to zero your throttle. Personally I think the existing interface is fine, and if you had to aim the ship it wouldn’t be that useful since the ship turns so much slower.
Sorry, I was not clear in my suggestion- I mean yes, you aim it like a weapon in SC at whatever speed. I was thinking that it would then make SC agility an extra consideration for explorers, and that brick ships would give more space, but make scanning more challenging.
