We are also considering displaying the advancement formula for each Major and for each research category where a research chit is applied.
It would be a mouse tool tip that displays when hovering over the chit investment area (highlighted in red) and would display something like the following:
[4,11] >> [3,8] +1 +1 +0
This would indicate the current advancement calculated [4,11], with the base value prior to catch up and intelligence bonuses applied, i.e. the [3,8]. The first + would be for friendly catch up, the second + for enemy catch up, and the third + for Spying and Intelligence bonus if applicable.
The benefit of this is it would be clear what the expected advancement results should be (also to confirm proper calculations), however the drawback is that it will reveal some extra information under FoW even though it is not clear which nation has the higher values for research level and for Spying and Intelligence.
But, overall both sides tended to know who had the better materiel, so it's not totally unrealistic and could outweigh the cons of knowing a bit more under FoW if everyone thought this would be useful?
Has this tool tip been implemented for WAW? I don't have WIE, but it appears that neither WWI or WAW has it. This would be a great feature if it can be done, thanks!
