I'd like a toggle (default: off) for ship combat damage display. Specifically, seeing the radiation damage and the void damage independent of the hull damage of the weapon. Example:
Railgun deals 150 Standard damage, 100 Void damage, and 25 Radiation damage (because I'm using Engine Lockdown to boost radiation damage and the roll was a maximum, let's say.)
Foe has 40% armor mitigation and 20% shielding mitigation. Foe has 5 radiation resist.
If this mode were enabled, the damage I would see displayed would look like:
-90 (red), -80 (blue) -16 (green)
If it were critical, the critical text would be appended on the right side.
This obviously wouldn't add up to 186 hull damage as it isn't using the 33% applied to radiation nor the 50% to void. However, for advanced players it would be nice to get a sense for how much component damage this is implying. It would also make visualizing the benefits of shielding, radiation resist, and void resist much simpler. It would also make talents that boost radiation damage more visually appealing.
Compare to the display we see with the toggle set to "off":
