show-debug-info-in-tooltips should include fluid info

Post by hexagonhexagon » Sun Aug 11, 2019 8:17 am

TL;DR
The debug option show-debug-info-in-tooltips should include tooltips for fluids including fluid name as well as fuel_value and emissions_multiplier to make modding easier.

What?
I make mods, and I find the "show-debug-info-in-tooltips" option invaluable for looking up item/recipe/technology names. Sadly, this doesn't appear to work for fluids, as seen below:

Here is roughly what I think it should look like:

Why?
Having this would make working with the 100's of fluids in some mods much easier. it is kind of a pain to look this info up manually, and it doesn't seem like a mod could replicate the same functionality I describe here as this doesn't appear to be accessible to mods.
