I tried to make UI proposals so they do not affect the game balance. Because modifications are minor, I list them all at once.

1) Instead of planet diameter, display only the max population of planet. Diameter has only use as maximum population (diam*30). Why not display it directly?

2) Orders can be assigned for ships from the 'ship overview' list. Feature can be implemented as separate drop-down list for each ship in place of 'orders' column. Every ship has only limited number of possible operations, so I guess it should be easy to implement.

3) Display tooltips when building mines, factories, etc. Tooltip would list eg. the cost of factory capacity upgrade.

4) Show estimated tax income and population growth on 'planet overview' and estimated budget on finance.

5) Show ship count per class and total cp on planet/wp in navigation mode. I have seen separate helper programs about this feature, so it should be integrated to Kosmor itself.

6) Show torpedo/laser/shield slots leaved empty when reconfiguring ship. Now I use combat power as reconfiguration checksum Wink

1, yes
2, yes, but also a page where you can see it as-is... much smaller html file is useful for people like me on dialup
3, i have no preference, would get annoying maybe... but would help newbies
maybe this option could be turn-off-able?
4, i like this idea... saves using excel too much
5, yes - please read my post in the other topic for what i think this could look like
6, yes, would help people who accidently leave them empty
