Would it be possible to add filters by type and size to the factory location on/off toggle? I dont know about other players but 99% of the time when I use this toggle is to see railyards and their damage level. The way it works now, where it shows you every single factory really clutters the view and makes things difficult (see attached image) when they dont need to be.

So I was wondering if it would be possible to add filters to this so that you can select what types of factories can be shown (eg: only railyards) and also filter by size (eg level 2 or higher). That way it would be very easy for players to visualize where the railyards are without having to comb through a bunch of other factories that play very little role in the way the game is played.

Curious to think of what other players think about this possible feature.

Imagine how much easier the map below would be to read if you were using filters and had only railyards on display.

Agree - the only reason I use that function is to look for railyards.

Agree - you can remove the manpower graphic for a start - just clutters up the map.
