The icon that displays the available resources in the current biome present in menues like cornerstone and blueprint choices is a great convenience feature, but it should be available in some other situations too.
For example, I still often find myself having to check back through the escape menu when considering Orders, buying perks or blueprints from traders etc.
Maybe it would even be simpler to just have a hotkey toggle that brings up the overview overlaid on the screen at any time.
OP, prior to merge:
In the Orders menu, when choosing missions to complete for the Queen, having a "Conditions" quick-view button would be extremely useful.
The "Conditions" quick-view button already exists in the Cornerstone choice menu and having a similar option to view those resources when looking at the Queen's Orders sub-menus would be a big QoL upgrade.
Currently, to verify that I'm selecting missions with rewards that actually benefit me, I'm forced to completely exit the Orders menu, open the main menu (ESC) and then view the "Conditions" that way and then navigate all the way back to the Orders menu. Hovering over the button like we currently can in the Cornerstone menu would prevent this.
I removed all the individual screenshots/comments in order to wrap them up here.
So far, I've identified the following menu/selection screens that should get the Biome Overview/Resources button -
1) Queen's Envoy - "Choose an Order"
2) Trader / "Trading Post"
3) Smuggler / "Wildcard"
4) ... tbd
I would *really* like to have the conditions/biome resources mouse-over icon on the Choose an Order window, just like it's present where you can choose a blueprint on the Reputation Bonus window, next to the Queen's Envoy's image.
And, honestly, having it somewhere on the overlay in general so you don't have to back out to the escape menu to see it would also be great. Like, maybe have it up next to the Orders icon or something in the top-right of the screen, since the mouse-over icon from the blueprint menu has that kind of aesthetic already.
Many times, I'm trying to pick between different orders and I have to back out all the way to the escape menu to see the biome information to confirm that a particular reward would either be beneficial or not to me.
Having that mouse-over preview in the Choose an Order menu would make things a lot easier, (as well as having it present on the overlay somewhere). Having to back out to the escape menu is kind of counter-intuitive and one of the very few frustrations I have about the UI in this game overall.
Regardless of the above, I appreciate all the work you all are doing. Keep up the great work!
