[DONE] [Suggestion] Global Research Overview screen
« on: March 18, 2018, 04:15:36 pm »
Because you ... no wait... I demanded  it, I've implemented a screen in OXCE+ that allows a player to check all the projects being researched at all the bases in one screen.  Using the key "c", you can bring up in two places: Geoscape & a base's current research screen. 

From this screen, if you click on a project in the list, it will take you immediately to that base's current research screen.

This is useful for times when you just can't keep track of all your projects.  When you find yourself saying, "Now which base was researching laser pistols again?" or while watching the globe spin, "How much progress have I made over these past few days?"

Changes are located in my copy of the oxce3.5-plus-proto branch:
https://github.com/jgatkinsn/OpenXcom/tree/oxce3.5-plus-proto

Attached is a small screen capture video.

You're welcome and thank Meridian for incorporating it.   Right now, I'm trying to setup my current game with my copy, because I'm missing it already ;)

Simply amazing!  Took my idea and made it better by 1000% :)  I bow to thee oh master of OXCE+ :)  I saw that you got it checked in today! Thanks for that.   I'll try and merge your latest and giver 'er a spin.


EDIT: One note. I forgot that I was going to add the TechTreeViewer click to this screen today, but you integrated faster than I expected :)
