Chili build menu needs cost and name in tooltip.

Reported by: beherith Owned by:
Priority: minor Milestone: BAR Beta release
Component: Chili Version:
Keywords: Cc:


Currently only the description of a unit is displayed on mouseover of the build menu. There are a few more bits of info that are vital (and need rapid displaying, preferably not on a delayed mouseover event):

  • Metal Cost
  • Energy Cost
  • Unit name
  • Build time
  • Range


  • DPS (per shot or per second)
  • Energy/metal making

I had the same idea, just haven't got to it yet. I might rework the whole tooltip soon (it's really simple code at the moment, so not much work).

I was thinking of getting rid of delay on all chili related tooltips and saving the delay for units/map related stuff, or would that be to far?

Imo these thing could appear in the s_info box - as though the unit was selected - when the mouse is hovering over a potential unit type to build.

I think including DPS is a bad idea because it's heavily context dependent and people will probably misunderstand.

Also, e/m making is maybe not useful for non-eco units (there are tonnes of things that make/use trivial e/m amounts). I think that for eco units the amount it makes of stuff is mentioned in the unit description field, but not 100% sure.

Just to make it clear - i tink the 'extra' info of e/m cost, buildtime & range is only worth showing in s_info when the mouse is hovering over the 'unit build' button; otherwise this info is not that useful.
