[0.9 RC 9] Mismatched days left counters in the intel screen
« on: November 18, 2018, 11:41:35 AM »

Just as the title suggests, the two "days left" counters are mismatched on some of the intel. I have only seen it on AI Inspections so far but I don't have much play time

Hmm, this seems correct, I think? The list item is showing the total estimated days until arrival (which includes organizing, assembling, travel, etc), while the detail is showing the days until it starts assembling.

Kinda seems disingenuous. Maybe have the full info list both the meet time and the time to attack?

Adding more info likely makes the detail panel require scrolling, and since the text explains what the numbers mean, it doesn't seem super necessary. (Let me move this to suggestions, hmm.)

Two values isn’t necessary really.  I just want the simple info to top line it for me.
