Tens,

The colors for distance was a neat addition... And it made me think of something that might be helpful to new players, lets say you click on square and try to send harvesters, in addition to the distance colors (red, yellow, green) could another indicator be added to let the player know which of the harvesters can be used to collect the resources present?

Perhaps this will help newbs who keep sending vans and cotters to harvest rare minerals?

Thanks again for all of your work on this helpful tool!

Wartow,

thanks for the praise Smile

I've been thinking about this for the last couple of days as it's not just newbies that get it wrong, I did it myself - sent my Herbalists to animal parts and Skinners to Larken Wood Embarrassed

The code to implement this is mainly done already in the Collectable scan tool. The problem is trying to come up with an indicator that will fit in the space available (UI is always a problem for me) so any suggestions are very welcome.

Implemented
Now when you click the 'Harvest Resources' link in the popup the unit image will be displayed as a negative if there are no suitable items for that unit. It doesn't stop you from sending those units but it does tell you if they'll be disappointed.

Example of what Tens did...



This was a location with only rare herbs.  The herbalist is active while the other three types of harvesters are shaded a blueish hue.  As Tens said, you can still send them but they'll be disappointed.  The other color next to the name of the harvester indicates the travel time.  Green is the shortest time, then yellow, then red.  The exact values that elicit each color can be found earlier in this thread.

Thanks to Tens for this addition, we hope it helps newbs with the mis-launching of harvesters!
