Well, the title says most of it. If i have an interceptor trailing UFO i might leave it alone until i see what it does. Maybe waiting for it to go over land, or land for taking it intact. However, when it starts to climb over interceptor's ceiling i would rather destroy it than let it go. In some rare occasions i might prefer to try and shoot UFO down rather than let it land. (Terror ship?)

So... I'd like to have a chance to give orders to the pilot when UFO he has been trailing does something significant. Or when interceptor is running out of fuel and cannot follow anymore. How about a simple message box like that of ground mission start?

"Firestorm-1 is low on fuel, and requesting permission to engage UFO."
1. Engage 2. Return to base.

Yeah, the way it is now, we can't engage the UFOs once the interceptor ran out of fuel... Great idea, to have a warning that it will run out of fuel soon :D

Interesting idea, how about a fuel bar?, so you can keep track of the interceptor's fuel level, and also a warning when you're about to run out.

Yeah, that's the idea... A warning BEFORE it's too late...

Or the possibility to LAND IN ANOTHER BASE if necessary...
I mean, it's stupid to have to get back to the other end of the world when there's a empty hanger just here...
They are VTOL craft for Cryin' out loud!! :crying:
they could land in our front lawn!! :stupid:
