I must be missing something about combat.
I just tried to start messing with this again, and I seem to be missing something about combat.

The first couple of fights I got into (Massively one sided against me) I understood well enough. Lock onto enemy activate weapon group and fly around trying to kill the other guy.

However a little later I tried to jump to some asteroids and was suddenly being attacked by ships that would not show up on radar and I can not select them by any means at all.

Is this a bug? Or are most ships in the game just supposed to need some special radar to pick up and lock onto?

Rat:
It sounds like either your HUD got turned off (pressing H turns off your hud) or your sensors were damaged during combat, which would make you not be able to see enemy ships anymore. If you return to the shipyard, then relaunch into space at this point, your ship will be 100% repaired automatically and should have sensors again. Give that a try and let me know if it is still goofing up on you.

I dont think so, I could still see both red and blue indicators. For example I fled a group of ships that was attacking me to a group of blue ships hoping they would help.

From there I could see other hostile (Red) markers and (blue) markers around all the ships I ran to. However the ships that were attacking me had no indicators at all.

It should also be noted I had not been in any combat before this happened. I came out of the ship yard and before I even started moving I was attacked, I could see my shields were still up. Of course I may not understand the mechanics and may still be able to lose systems even with shields up to some random lucky hit.

Speaking of which, it would be REALLY nice to have some kind of damage indicator both for my ship and the enemy ships.
