[1.1.6] Map tag icon picker does not include recipes

Post by GotLag »

When adding a new tag, the icon picker uses the signal picker, meaning that recipes are not available for selection:

Compare that to the icon picker used for the tag label:

Is this an oversight or a deliberate choice? Being able to use recipe icons makes sense for things like oil refineries or nuclear reprocessing setups.

These are 2 different systems, the rich text picker has much more available

I'm aware there are two pickers, it just seems like maybe the map tag dialogue is using the wrong one for the icon

Everything uses that picker, except for the rich text helper, which is only for text fields

Maybe it's time to rethink that, then.

Regardless of any rethinking, its not a bug

This has been suggested and reported as a bug before. See 91302 if you want to "+1" it.

Tools: Atom language pack
Text quickly seems cold and unfriendly. Be careful how you write and interpret what others have written.
- A reminder for me and all who read what I write
