Inconsistency between power and production

Post by RickJS »

The displays for power and production are inconsistent in the placement of the panels for production and consumption. Is there a reason for this?

Can you be more specific? Images?

Could you please elaborate (and better, provide a screenshot with the offending discrepancy visible) ? With just your post, I can't understand what you're talking about.

I'm not in front of my computer, so no images for a while.

For one of the displays, consumption is the left panel, for the other, consumption is on the right.

Well the left one is the one that is most useful for both item production and electric network info and the one most look at. So maybe that's why? Main info to the left, additional less important info to the right.

Item consumption doesn't include items that aren't consumed, like buildings. Electricity production is so few entries it doesn't really provide more info than how many solar panels you have, satisfaction bar on top gives more useful info on electricity production than the right panel often.

I'm fine with the most useful on the left, no matter if it's production or consumption.
