QoL Ore Quantities in Mapgen Preview

Post by JustAPerson »

In game if you use the map and mouse over an ore patch, a tooltip appears displaying the amount of ore in that patch. Could this be added to the mapgen preview window as well?

The preview was just an image made for the FF without first asking if we where going to actually do it. As far as I know the preview won't have counts. It's a preview - not the full game. That data isn't known unless we generated the full map at which point you might as well have just clicked generate and looked at it yourself.
If you want to get ahold of me I'm almost always on Discord.
