    Which has been asked to be used more times than I can count. But still won't be done.

    The admiralty system is best left for a phone app along with the duty officers and other tedious clicky stuff. I would like to see being able to call your fleet in for back up much like the distress calls and to make it important to outfit your ships accordingly.

    We already have a drop-down menu where we can pick our title...

    Ah, yeah, the rank names are in that huge list, aren't they. I'd meant one that actually effected the rank you were called (presumably, a separate small menu of just the actual ranks).

    And what would be the point of that? They should just use the existing one.

    The point would be that the NPC's call you by whatever you choose.
    <sigh> :disappointed:

    The point of having a separate menu for it, instead of using the one that's already there.

    And NPCs by their very definition aren't yours to control.

    Neither are boffs most of the time.

    ...so you can have NPCs call you a chosen rank level, without giving up the ability to pick any of the goofy titles for your character's nameplate?

    edit: yes, this is going on the assumption that only real ranks would be an option for what NPCs call you in dialogue.

    But there is no reason to make such an assumption.

    I have bazillion title choices unlocked and want to see them mean something more than a floating text above my head.

    Ok, this thread getting derailed. It was not started to discuss level/rank/titles and changing how that works as that is in the FCT. Please, get back on topic.
