Better rover camera when drilling

Recommended Posts

Drilling with rovers, especially with the tractor, is made difficult by the fact that the camera is always behind the vehicle, which is troublesome because you cannot see what you're drilling or where you're going. I think this needs to be fixed. A first-person camera would do nicely for this, but there may be another way. Also, for convenience, there could be a radar/sonar system on the drill which shows where surface-air boundaries are with a hologram, perhaps coloured, so that you know when you are about to emerge. This would make digging around a lot more intuitive and fun in my opinion, as you could plan your route and make tunnels without falling into the next cave layer.
