[SUGGESTION] Change to ATC to give vectors for planetary bases

A small change:

"Ok, Commander, you are a go for Pad 'One' 'Two'"

To:

"Ok, Commander, you a a go for Pad 'One' 'Two', Approach on Vector 'Two' 'Four' 'Zero'"

The second being the compass heading that, if you line your compass to heading 240, (example), that you will be lined up very close to the pad orientation.

Would only be applicable for planetary bases, obviously.

Visually, They could put a 'Blue Line' on the planetary compass (since blue means alignment) that matches the orientation of the heading announced.

Also, this shouldn't be Server side, it could be calculated per instance and only when the pad is assigned. Because at that point, the client knows where the pad is and it's orientation, and therefor, the audio would reflect that (rounded to the nearest decimal)

A Tiny change would be realistic for the ATC to give approach vectors and can allow Compass only landings (The alignment compass could also go 'blue' when directly over the pad') And then the orientation get you pointed the right way until you see the landing overlay.

Just something small to add to the realism to the game, and help some of those visually challenged ships with what's below them.

Thanks.

I like your idea! I second this.
