Hover on tree trunk, branches shows tree type
« on: January 25, 2023, 09:42:30 pm »

It would be extremely helpful, when planning wood-based production, if hovering the mouse over a tree trunk would say what kind of tree trunk it is.

It is very tedious to have to switch between k-looking and designating cutting for every tree, or to try to remember which tree was where, when going for a specific type of tree. If the mouse hover would show what kind of tree, then we could work in the designation menu and know what we are designating without having to guess and check.

I also wish it was easier to see what kind of trees are where, or how many, so I don't accidentally depopulate the entirety of my favorite kind (I'm looking at you, willow trees!) but that is a pipe dream wish.

That'd be convenient to see tree type from the tree chopping menu. I like to chop down the non-fruit-bearing trees first.
