This Eve Online expansion pack would allow 3-D battle
plans to be created for fleets and transmitted to each
ship in the fleet as a line to follow at various speeds
and with various instructions along the way.
Imagine a fleet admiral needs a half wedge formation
of destroyers to threaten one
side of a titan and force
it away from ideal placement.
He would use this tool to draw the formation in space
and transmit it to the right number of destroyers. The
first attacking ship would see a line in space with a
speed written on it in his HUD and instructions (also
written out in space on his line) about what defenses
to use. The second destroyer may see a slower speed
on his line and then the same speed so he falls a little
behind but then stays in position, slightly off to one
The attacking ships could use this vector whilst
focusing on their own immediate tactics allowing a
much better coordinated attack.
