Forgive me if it's a thing and I haven't noticed it exists already. I lack experience with planet generation.

In the spirit of giving the player more agency, I figured it would be good to be able to preview the resources on a planet before actually starting playing on it.

I don't know how resources are generated and thus if it is indeed feasible, but the idea is being able to view the resource deposits in a similar way the Strategic Map allows for explored territory, after planet generation is done and before the game is started. (So, maybe just before colonization since I believe you can't quite see the map from that point?)

This way the player could assess if there are for example metals or not and decide if they are up for the challenge or would rather re-roll.

The idea came to mind after reading some people's experience of finding out after sometimes several dozen turns there were not much metals or oil on their current game's planet and being somewhat frustrated by this.

With this feature, hardcore players would still be able to play in a challenging environment if they accept the roll and go with it, or even go blind if they fancy and this is implemented as an option, and more casual ones would be guaranteed they would not have to abandon the game they have invested time in because of a lack of resources and thus limited options and increased difficulty.
