Spectator mode

Post by Techman1086 » Tue Oct 06, 2015 6:07 am

When you start a new game you can set an amount of spectators . People can then join as them.

When you are a spectator you can fly around and no clip, you are also invisible, and can not press any buttons or chat.
Also add a teleporter screen into the HUD so spectators can go to planets and stations without having to find where the insides are located in the game map.

Maybe even add a button that allows you to align with any ship, so you can chase cam them and make sure you don't lose the outside of the ship when it flies away.

And of course you need to be able to hide the HUD.

This would making watching and maybe filming a Pulsar game very easy and fun!

An easier version of this might just be to spectate a player, so you see what they see.

If you spectate a bot, you can then request to take over for that bot. That would solve the issue of joining a "full" game. You can pop in, introduce yourself, and then the host lets you take over seamlessly.
