I have toyed with this idea for over a year now. Custom touch screen interface that makes the clutter of the traditional one unnecessary. It has 2 benefits ,one it is not effected by the screen flicker when hit and two you can make buttons bigger and take up more realestate without compromising targeting systems or other display readouts.
So far i only have a simple one working but have learned enough about ROCCAT Power Grid to make more complex ones . I intend to make a custom weapons console first complete with loading animations for torp tubes if possible. then remove the stations cam controls and all firing mechanisms so that they are controlled via a touch screen at a 45 degree angle from the targeting monitor.
Without further adieu i give you the Charm City Fleets COMMAND CONSOLE!
It is designed to be placed within a captains chair armrest via small device. Said device can also be carried by the captain all across the bridge. Using a single computer linked to both a weapons/helm and a data console he can control the main viewer directly and change the data screen.
(some components are still in development such as making a virtual joystick to allow the data console to be tied to an analog input once i have this worked out ill be releasing this and likely one more console on roccats website)
