Once upon a time there was a mod called monstro markers. This mod showed you all the consumables being used by the players on your team. I believe it also showed you what ships on your team were spotted by the enemy. It used a file in the game that the evil emperor decided was bad for it to access, it might access other bad things that the emperor did not want accessed, so the evil emperor banned the mod from the game. The evil emperor told his subjects that he would look at the idea of the mod and see about putting it into the main game.

A year and a half later, the evil emperor provided his subjects with the bare minimum of what the mod had offered. the game client would now show which ships were triggering their hydro and radar. It would not put an icon on the ship as long as the consumable was active, just tell you when the ship started to use it.

A few months later, the game received a spectator mode for training room. This new spectator mode has lots of possibility as spectators can switch from one side to the other or show all ships at once. However, they have no idea which ships are spotted without switching views. The amount of information that could be given with the functions that monstro markers provided could be huge. Being able to see all consumables that are being used on both sides as well what ships are spotted would make casting competitive matches much easier and more enjoyable for the casters and the viewers.

WG, please look at putting the complete functionality of the old monstro markers mod into the game.
