Okay, I loaded my beta test save, checked the hydral world's hostile actions and found the mission. I didn't noticed it before. I feels like there is a problem here: after hours of vanilla (or Betrayed Hopes) play, I learn to never check neither bother about the hydral's homeworld. I think something like an icon on top of the busted planet's image would do the trick. Is that in your coding range? Does it sounds like an actual problem, and is what I suggest a solution?I figured that was the best place to put it.
Oh, yeah, sure. And it perfectly makes sense. My point (that I poorly expressed, sorry 'bout that) was that IMO it needs more visual hints that there is a cool mission available here. The busted hydral world is a place that had very few interest in the past game modes, right? I tend to never check what's available at the busted hydral's world, because there is barely never something interesting to do here. My question/suggestion was: is there an easy way to put some sort of icon or something to more visually show there is something available here?
It's loosely bound to the previous (vanilla) hydral tech missions: they are available from every planet. The "destroy pirate base" and "raid pirate convoy for loot" too, but it's not incoherent. However, I feel it perfectly makes sense to have your new Hydral mission available in the hostile acts toward the busted hydral's world. My (secondary) point is that now, it shows that the previous (vanilla) hydral missions are oddly available from every planet. In a perfect world (where everything is easy to code), I would have moved the old hydral mission in the busted world's list of actions. I feel it would makes more sense.
In all respect of your excellent job, Draco. It's just me doing my betatest job and pointing things. Do or do not
but there is no try
it's up to you (and your abilities (and if you agree (of course))).
PS: aren't the old (vanilla) hydral tech missions supposed to be in the ice belt? Hm. So is it still thematic and coherent and whatnot to have them accessible from the busted hydral world, as in my suggestion? Maybe not... Sad.
