So the Cyclops is a very long sub, and I don't know about you, but when submerging down into the depths I always manage to hit the back end against things because I don't realise how far away the rock/cliff/edge is.
So what would be good, when driving your Cyclops, you have a HUD which displays some kind of warning when you're very close to hitting something and shows which part of your Cyclops is about to hit.

    Protip: Don't just do "Yes" and "No" polls.
    Anyone that likes the idea will click "Agree" or "Awesome", anyone that doesn't will either tell you why, click "Disagree" or leave the thread.

    I know, I just find polls better for the visual side :smiley:

    All it needs is a CCTV camera. However, if you add in a bunch of other stuff (currently the two stations on the sides of the command room are useless) such as sonar, then the Cyclops would become so much better.

    I want to start by saying a HUD would be an amazing idea but NOT for proximity warnings. I could understand displaying on-screen parts of the Cyclops that are already damaged but not "About to be" damaged. This is because I believe that learning how to pilot the sub correctly is part of what makes this game unique. You can't always make things too easy.

    @DarkPrince7256 - Although I agree in some ways, I do also disagree. Yes it would make driving the sub easier, but at the end of the day a lot in the game is a form of simulation and sub, boats etc.. in the real world do have things like radar to detect things they are close to.
    But I do totally understand what you're saying that it would make it too easy, but sometimes although you drive it correctly, things do seem to appear out of nowhere.

    Not so much a HUD but better view port
    and can we have distance from; sub,seamoth, beacons etc on our HUD? I'd like that

    Some display with the ship in the center. Perhaps a subnautica version of a sonar?

    Just give the Cyclops sonar, a CCTV camera, and a few other scanners and stuff. Make the bridge into a full control center.

    And that would let you see what's ahead and below you how?
