Summary0020638: Engineers as a resource
Finding engineers distributed in the galaxy. I need to quickly find engineers in the galaxy when I'm running low on them and have a bunch somewhere. Finding them is tedious since filters are gone (and were cumbersome to use anyway).

Engineers are displayed in the top bar as a resource. With a display of "(current engineer count)/(total engineer cap)".
Hovering over the resource icon should show the planets with engineers and engineer count. Clicking should keep that popup open. Clicking on a planet in that popup should take you to that planet.
TagsNo tags attached.

AIWC had very useful and very unintuitive filters of all kinds. I hope it's in the roadmap, I'd very like to be able to find engineers, science labs, starships and all other types of ships and structures that are capped, to scrap or move them from where they're not needed to where I need them most. Basically, all of them. By the precise type or some "umbrella"/generalized type like military/builders/turrets/mines/shields/etc.

@rkfg do you think issue 20640 would be an adequate solution for that?

I guess so. Didn't know about this btw, the map is very blinky when I move the cursor around, everything gets highlighted or darkened for no visible reason (I get it now though), it's not visually pleasant and tiresome for the eyes. I'd prefer a subtle highlight of the relevant planets instead of darkening the rest. Numbers would be great, too.

Thanks for the suggestion

I'm going to close this for now, because of the changes to Engineers in 0.900. They are per planet now, and the ones you can bring with you around the galaxy are a different kind connected with Fleets.
