Mouse-Over Tooltips - More Accessibility
« on: August 26, 2019, 12:15:10 PM »

Hey, as I've been playing Starsector over the last week or so I've come into situations where I really wanted a mouse-over tooltips on certain things during certain screens.

Two of the more noteworthy examples being:

-When you are recruiting officers/admin/etc and they list their traits (Adding mouse-over tooltips for the traits)
-Salvaging and choosing to recover ships with (d) mods (Adding mouse-over tooltips for things in the (f1) info tab)

This situation comes up so frequently that I don't play Starsector unless I have the wiki open on another screen so I can look up what all these skills, attributes, mods, etc all mean. Having access to more info is a great boon to user experience and ease of understanding. Especially for newer players who haven't committed the entire game to memory.

Thanks for your time and consideration!
