Nice shot, Critical. Very nice. I like it very much.
I think it was already proposed previously on BFC forums, without this nice shot that fully explains why it can be so usefull, esp. for beginners like myself.
If it is not on you whish list already, please, make it so !
I hope the list is longer than the beard of Santa Claus now. :D
For the screen space, I think that a pop-up window would be fine. Also, do not consider delaying the game for it. It is a fine feature, but that's not a showstopper.
BTW, I noticed that my old proposal to have more explicit material icons in the equipement view didn't make it to this one. Can I still hope for game 2 ?
Dave, Critical, keep up with the good work,
