Changing the "N/A"in the logistic requests to more useful things

Post by Drogiwan Cannobi »

Edit: Untangled post.
TL;DR
When requests are disabled, the mouseover should say that instead of "N/A"

What ?
  • The number one question on reddit is "why are my logistic bots not working"? I think everyone has been there. You die or disable requests manually and then you wonder why stuff isn't coming in. I think every single new player gets confused by this at least once. So why not change the "N/A" in the mouseover to display either "item not available", "outside roboport range" or "requests disabled"? Seems like a very easy fix for a thing that bugs a lot of new players.

Re: Offshore pump from Q on water; disabling single logistic requests; changing the "N/A" to more useful things

Please: for such type of suggestions one post per suggestion.

Why? It can’t be discussed. It cannot be ordered. For example the offshore pump idea is already suggested: viewtopic.php?f=6&t=55568 Pressing "Q" auto-selects Offshore Pump if cursor over water
But I cannot merge this with that thread, because other subjects are in.
Cool suggestion: Eatable MOUSE-pointers.

Alright, sorry. I'll delete this one and uncouple the other two
