Refresh Colony Cache

Postby CastleRavenna » Tue Oct 18, 2016 2:50 pm

I would like to see a button in the colony/OSB/ISB interface that would force a refresh of the cached data. I appreciate the use of the cache to minimize network traffic. I don't need updated information every time I visit a market. On the other hand, it adds nothing to my enjoyment of the game to have to find some module I can power off and on in order to see what my research state really is and know how many colonists I need to bring in.

As an alternative, forcing a refresh when I open the research panel would mean less change to the UI, and therefore less programming, and would serve the same purpose.

I like the idea of a button or some such to do it besides cycling power on a building. Good idea.
