Player's inventory - logistic network requests indications.

Post by mp0011 »

Whenever I enter logistic zone, I wait until bots bring my stuff.
Problem is, there are sometimes no stuff in boxes, so I stand there like an dummy...

I wish items in thrash/requests slots has color background, to indicate items availability (only in zone):

- red - no item in this logistic network / no free space in logistic network;
- yellow - item available, but not as much as I request/no enough free space in logistic network;
- green - item available, awaiting delivery (bots are busy right now) / items will be taken, but bots are busy;
- green/yellow flashing - items are on the way / bots are on the way
- blue - requested items already in inventory

I like this idea.
I think it would also be useful to see somehow, how much items are currently "on the way".
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

I've always wanted this as an option, but over time I found that creating a "shopping mall" of sorts with it's own logistic system would function the same. You could even create light arrays telling how much of each material is there ready to go for you and the logistic bots in the system will only serve the purpose of getting you your items, so if no bots are moving then the items you want are not available.

I like the idea of colors, but not flashing. Things should only flash if something needs asap attention.
