We are starting to get a lot of different ideas floating around this thread outside of just the UI revamp that Roi/Hepps are working on. I'd suggest for any ideas folks feel strong about such as BC, territory info format, etc to create a separate thread articulating clearly what you'd propose as otherwise they will just get lost in this thread.
@alkexr I agree. An improvement is certainly possible in terms of how the information is presented. Either way a box is still necessary for the information and that is what I am trying to cover in this thread.
The topic is certainly worthy of its own thread as a feature request.
@hepps The territory info box is currently cluttered with
Units may change ownership
Captured by -> Ownership to
Britain -> Exiled Allies
Russia -> Exiled Allies
USA -> Exiled Allies
China -> Exiled Allies
Brazil -> Exiled Allies
Spain -> Exiled Allies
Which is both an inefficient use of space and poor way of showing information to the player. Ideally you would want to say:
Exiled Allies take control of Allied units in this territory.
or (after elaborating in the game notes how Exiled Allies territories work) simply
Exiled Allies territory
Now this is a nice dream, but this is definitely not generalizable to all possible maps. That's why I'm arguing for per map html customizability. Something like
tooltip.territory.Low Countries = Owner: <b>$CURRENT_OWNER$</b><br/>Original Owner: Germany<br/>A territory of the Exiled Allies
Now there are several obvious problems with this exact syntax, but I would love to see something like this implemented.
@general_zod Probably best. Since there is a lot going through this thread already.
And since the BC is a much a question functionality as it is format... it probably justifies that we discuss that in detail in its own right.
