Alright Netriak, here's what i think a later version 1.8.0 COULD
Of course, all of this is only if you are willing to tackle the extra stuff!
A snapshot of some inserted info (suggestion) sized at the default 1080 wide but with length necessarily raised at 900...
1) Compare two races at once.
2) Numerical reference column where tech IDs can be listed.
3) Total # of Items
currently in focus (example... The Torians have ONLY
10 Super Projects while Terrans can use 12!?, etc.) in each area. Somehow useful while parsing alphabetically.
4) Navigation, previous or next items explored. That could even add some parsers shortcut which would list items based on High_Low Costs. Or whatever.
5) A visualization grid of boxes (Circles, Hexagons, Triangles?) representing where every techs are in any trees (similar in fact, to what GTeChnos will provide!). Yet to be entirely designed to squeeze into a 710x100 framework... but, gives a general idea about proportional pathways and connections.
6) Other Items
section gets to deploy some data & even graphics about all default Races.
Maybe, if we're all lucky
enough to convince you!
And, so on.
