Numbered Rovers
« on: August 22, 2011, 06:53:44 AM »
I just want to know, if its possible to  get a number on the rovers that you can see from the outside. i know there will be new ones when art-work gets further....but is it possible to give them a number like a "01" at the sides?   or maybe a different colour of the stripes "blue,red,yellow and green for example" 

i guess its easy to talk about them ("no, not the empty one! the one with the boxes...")   and it could be easier to plan your work order ...( rover 03 to service because of damage ,01 and 02 at geo....04 is on standby)

maybe programm uses always same "design-data" for each of them...then it would be too much work to change that...

Very good, and useful idea!
IMO big numbers on both sides of the rovers would be the most visible solution...

Rovers will be changed - hyper said.
As for the back-mirror - we have the "Z" key.  :)
