G'day,

One of the things that gets me frustrated with an otherwise excellent game is the amount of clicking I need to do in order to find out what is happening with resources in my empire.

To get the information I need I have to open up a large number of GUI elements. It's all there but it's spread far and wide. Given that the game revolves around resources I've been putting some thought into a more efficient method of displaying the information.

So I've come up with a revamp of the Expansion planner. Not as the end all and be all but as a starting point for a discussion.

Personally I think there is a need for a better information flow but others may not.

I'd also put a vote in for a slider that determines the amount of resources found in the galaxy. I rarely find myself with a shortage of strategic elements, such is their prevelance.

I've copied this to the wishlist.





Cheers,
Lancer
