It is a great tool.. not sure you take request but something I find lacking in Aurora are good economic planning tools and overviews.

I would like to have overviews in production and consumption that are better broken down. For example it is way easier to get a good overview if I can see the consumption and production of minerals on a yearly basis. The numbers can also be broken down per system... that way you can easier setup mineral runs without having to do manual calculations.

You could start with an empire overview that simply display the total mineral income adding all the mineral extraction and present them in a yearly basis or the value could be changeable. If you like to see it per month or three month you could do that too.

You could then select a system and you get a broken down list over the mineral income and consumed in that system. That is good so you know how many minerals you need to ship in and out of that system every year to satisfy the needs.

You also can break down the production into categories so we easier can see where all the minerals are being spent, both from an entire empire perspective or per system.

You probably could find additional uses for a good empire and/or economical overview panel in this tool in addition to this.

It's an interesting and daunting idea. I'll mull it over.

There's a new option in settings to see and select NPR races.

Thanks.  I already spy on them in the db file as part of the story I'm telling my kids.  This will make it much easier!

I seem to have stumbled upon a bug. If I load the Database while on the Production tab or if I switch to the Production tab all the buttons and controls are unresponsive and I can't switch tabs or go to settings all I can do is scroll down the Production tab.

I'm guessing this has something to do with my DB, as this problem appeared after I saved the game and is happening in older versions of Electrons as well (I've tested 0.8.2, 0.8.3 and 0.8.5).

Having a similar problem. I deleted the default game from the DB and now Electrons isn't working. It did work fine prior to that though, but it could also be something else I've done.

Electron cannot function if you attempt to use it while the DB is being accessed and will freeze up - Saving/loading the game will access the DB so it should freeze up during but recover afterwards

Thank you! I'm loving this tool already. May I ask how do you calculate mineral potential for bodies and can we somehow alter it?

Being Θ the set of minerals (for bodies in the habitability breakdown this is the actual minerals present on the body, in the minerals breakdown this is the currently visible minerals in the table so that zero-amount minerals actively reduce the body's potential; this doesn't happen for bodies in the habitability breakdown which considers only minerals that exist on the body), and being a the accessibility of each mineral and m the amount of each mineral, mineral potential is calculated like this:



Currently this is not editable and I struggle to envision a UX to even make this editable in the first place. Maybe I could include suggested formulas and provide the option of different approaches.

I have unexplored Ancient Construct on my colony and Electrons shows me what type it is (Warnings - Others - Unexploited ancient constructs). That might be something that users would prefere to be unknown.
