Show Logistic/Circuit conditions in tooltips.

Post by Mimp » Wed May 01, 2019 3:31 am

TL;DR
The tooltip below the minimap should display circuit or logistics conditions when you hover over a connected entity.

What ?
Seems like this information is readily available if you click the item (say an inserter) to pull up the properties. Why not save us a click and have it shown in the tooltip?

Why ?
I think this change could save time. Having this information displayed up front may help new players understand why machines are operating the way they are. Players in multiplayer games could benefit from it as well, they could save effort learning the limits other players set.

A nice qol improvement.
It could become a bit bloated for entities using both circuit and logistics triggers, but in that case it'd help even more since you can't see both of those at once in the normal configuration ui.
