Suggestion: Colony Social Network and colonist overview

Postby Asgarus » Fri Sep 01, 2017 10:28 pm

Hi there.

If you get to a decent population size (my highest was about 60), the colony social network visualization becomes a little bit... hard to decipher.
I also got some lag everytime when opening it when it got bigger.

My suggestion is to add a new default view for the social networks.
A simple table like in Dwarf Therapist (a tool for Dwarf Fortress most here should know). X = all colonists, y = all colonists, while each tuple is colored according to the already defined color code for relations.

I think that would be much much much easier to read in a larger colony.

I would also like to have a list of all my colonists that shows important stats (or even better I can freely choose what information that list shows).


I think both would greatly increase the manageability of a colony.

This is actually one of the most common issues raised by players now, and it's really coming to the forefront of conversation on the DF forum's thread.

What are the best tools for dwarf management in DF? I haven't played around with mods enough to know what's out there, but if there's a tool that does this sort of thing well that I could look at for inspiration, that'd be a huge help!
