It would be nice, if you could craft and place / attach displays to buildings and belts in order to get information without the need to interact with the building. You could display:

  • which / how many items are inside a storage container
  • how much fuel is left in a generator
  • how much is left of the fuel item which is currently consumed
  • what a Smelter / Constructor / Assembler / Manufacturer is producing
  • the progress of the item that is currently produced
  • how many items per minute a specific conveyor belts transports. 
  • the consumption graph or the raw capacity and consumption values of the power network or a specific building.
  • the efficiency of a building
  • how much a building is overclocked

Something like this is of course not crucial for the game, but wouldn't it be cool if we would have these or something similar? wink 

It would be great, if you share your opinion on this in the comment section. Maybe you have further ideas about what else could be displayed. If you think, that this is not a good idea, please tell me why.

To get a better idea what I'm meaning, you can checkout the link / pictures below. By the way, I got this Idea whole because I played with this mod in the past.

August 28th update: We've removed downvotes! One major reason is because we don't want to discourage folks from posting legitimate suggestions / reports / questions with fear of being mass downvoted (which has been happening a LOT). So we now allow you to upvote what you like, or ignore what you don't. Points have also been adjusted to account for this change.
Please use the search function before posting a new question and upvote existing ones to bring more attention to them, It will help us a lot. <3
