How hard would it be to have a floating avatar box?

Program aborts? Network configuration? Graphic errors? Bugs? Post your question here.

In my release of the newer version of my mod I was thinking about having a floating square box with a picture of the character you are playing (hero ships). So how hard would it be to have say a Martok Bird of prey with a floating avatar box above the ship like the 6 level gold thingy, but replaced with a box the size of the avatar seen in the upper left hand corner?

Does this question make sense?

Well, seeing how the Devs were able to add unique ranks to the game, it's possible that you could create a ship with "rank 7" and set "rank 7 to use a different icon. I don't know if there is a limit to ranks though, since you would need ranks 7 - 16 in order to get all the Avatars.

Not to mention there probably is a limit to the size of the rank, so you might not be able to fit the whole Avatar picture in there. But using the rank system is the only idea that comes to mind.
