Consistency between Production and Electric Network Info screens

Post by 2B1 »

TL;DR
Make the Production and Electric Network Info screens consistent with respect to Production on the left, Consumption on the right.
What ?
On the Electric Network Info screen, move the Production panel to appear on the left and the Consumption panel to appear on the right.
This follows the same left to right production to consumption paradigm used in the Production screen.

disagree - it's perfect as it is now.

produced electricity is consumed. it makes sense to be on the right side where consumption falls.

and it's been this way for years.

Sense/Usefulness over Consistency
