Suggestions and ideas for improving Shores of Hazeron

Move patent management controls to separate tab in UI

Postby AnrDaemon » Sun Nov 12, 2017 2:38 pm

This has been discussed briefly in #Galactic, but with changes to storage devices and new patent management UI, the current select/get/record controls behave a little bit odd.
It would be better to have a separate tab for patents management.
Benefits are quite xclear: A better overview of available patents, clear, direct management UI. And a room for improvements, like listing existing but currently unavailable patents for specific buildings.

There was talk about making a visual technology tree view, showing all patents and what other patents are prerequisites. Possibly a tab for the university building.

I totally suggest moving all the patent import and export controls onto that tab. Requiring an university to import and export patents seem fine.
Could even make the whole import/export interface similar to the cargo hold interface, showing your patents on one side and the city's patents on the other side.
AnrDaemon is the solution to the [s]Fermi Paradox[/s] Hazeron suggestion flood problem, the great suggestion filter.

I don't think the patent recording needs to be overly complicated.
At most, a filtered list of update'able patents could be presented.
