    This mod adds information icons to all build menu items. Clicking this icon opens up the PA Unit database site for that unit (Created by @yarmond, see https://forums.uberent.com/threads/pa-unit-database.49663/).

    Honestly, I'd rather have more unit info on the build order mouseover that exists in game already: infopanel.png

    Cool mod tho :D might just install the browser part to mess around a little :cool:

    well isn't it possible to make raevn's mod show up in those pop ups? or would it make them load too slow?

    I tried figuring out how the pop-ups worked a couple of builds back but my js additions just kept messing things up :(

    Continues to work in build 52512.

    @infuscoletum, I'll take a look at the pop up box, see what info I can provide.

    Edit: No luck, I'm afraid. All the info that is passed to the build hover menu is name, description, blueprint id and metal cost. Maybe you could load in the blueprint and read off the values though, never tried that though.

    Hmmm having said that, you could build the appropriate URL from the blueprint ID and use that retrieve a web page to display in the pop-up window. The pages would need to be pre-made though, and made specially to fit inside the pop-up box.

    They could, but from a design perspective, pop-ups shouldn't obscure half the screen.

    This works great in build 56387 and it doesn't require the browser mod anymore. Also, thanks raevn for making this! It's one of my favorites.

    Could you update this to work in the new version of the mod manager? This is one of my favorites and I'm missing it badly now. :(
