How about changing the engine thrusters on multi-engine ships so that each engine glow corresponds with the subsystem integrity of each engine? ie, currently, if engine01 gets destroyed, it still burns on; next you take out engine02, still you have three engines burning, and finally, when the last one is destroyed, they all go out at once. I'd like to see the engines go out as they are each destroyed/disabled.
While I'm on that thought, what about the possibility of changing the engine glow to off, or to a very, very faint glow (think 15 watt incandescent bulb compared to a 150 watt) when the throttle is at zero?
What do you guys think?
