Especially for huge builds, a quick way to check on various factories

Post by Mauslag PIngman »

You can make tags and for example label a factory with a red circuit on the map. It would be nice if the tag had a button so that you could go to the next red circuit factory and the next after that because if you have a sprawling build you need to check on things quickly. Also would be nice to have a page listing all your factories by whatever they produce so that you can see stats on them and click on them to go there.

You already have a page for production. If I could click on things in the production page and go to that entity's factories one after the other in map view I could quickly look for which factory isn't producing and get a look at what needs to be done without having to do a lot of scrolling.

Also the tag list could have a search function for filtering

One of those ideas, I think would make perfect sense to implement as mod first.

I think of a (sortable) list-view in the map mode, where it lists all tags and you can click on a entry and the map jumps to that place.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.
