Summary0024761: Would be nice if the metal costs of units was shown on their tooltip
DescriptionWhen im trying to decide if I should build turrets to help an attack vs just replace the ships that die, I cannot account for the price of the turret against the price of the ships.

It is shown on the tooltip. It's the first item, directly below the name of the unit and mark.

That isn't shown when you look at a unity on the field of battle which for me is 99% of the time i look at their stats.

I just check because I was sure that what Strategic Sage wrote is correct. What I found was that even with extended tooltips the metal cost is no longer shown. Did it get removed by accident?

Ahh, that does explain the difference. It does show when looking at the Fleet/Build panels, which is the only place I would personally look for it anyway. When it's a unit in combat, I personally don't care what the metal is if I'm looking there, I make those decisions outside of combat.

I think this is done to cut down on the amount of information on the tooltips and try to present only the most relevant info, since there has been a lot of back and forth over time with people alternately saying there is too much or not enough info in various views.

I don't have a strong opinion on whether it should be in the 'battle' or whatever tooltips or not. I didn't even know before that they were different.

Yeah its subjective. For me I look at a battle field and try to assess the "value" of things im going to be loosing. For example turrets vs ships. I could go into the other menus to find this but for me it happens as spur of the moment thing not a pre-planned thing.
