Summary0019423: Build restrictions are not very clear
DescriptionBuild restrictions such as Power, research requirements, build caps, etc. are not very clear in the build menu. The icons are hard to see and the reason for why certain ships cant be built is not intuitively or clearly conveyed.

Currently buildings unable to be built even show the "ghost icon" that is meant to convey future placement. This is very misleading since player are clicking along and wondering why the thing wont start building.

The graying out effect used to show vessels that are not researched is very subtle and hard to see to the untrained eye

Suggestions:
1. Refine the restriction icons to be larger and clearer
2. Add a notification when trying to build something you cannot and the reason why this is
3. Do not allow ghost icon to show for buildings that cannot be placed
4. Enhance the graying out used to convey non researched vessels
TagsNo tags attached.
