Proposal: Modification to the Racial Relationship Screen
« on: May 02, 2014, 02:28:51 AM »
Here is my proposed changes to the Racial Relationship Screen.

Important Features:
  • Numeric values of factors contributing to relationship
  • Monthly changes to relationship
  • Current status of relationship
  • Cutoffs for individual Race Actions (I made up some here to characterize further expansion opportunity
  • Note on relevant permanent modifiers to relationships

Further suggestions? After sufficient feedback I'll post it to Mantis.

Again this just ties into the 'ol transparency of information suggestion. Mantis this, and your other screen info ideas.

Love the idea of showing monthly changes (both projected and actual last month's change) would be nice!

Showing the monthly change is kind of a big deal for me.

I'd like it to be sorted by magnitude by default, but the ability to set it to be sorted alphabetically, by magnitude, and by rate of change would all be nice.
Furthermore, it is my opinion that Hari must be destroyed.

Another shout out for monthly changes.

I think they should keep the bar chart though. I find it much easier to get a grip on the whole situations with a nice visual thing like that - getting rid of it would just make the screen harder to use. Pushing the chart to one side and adding the columns of numbers next to it might work well.
