Display Weapon Classes in 'Equip Soldiers' window
« on: September 07, 2011, 04:48:37 am »
It would be helpful if the screens that show available weapons would show which skill set each weapon relies on.  I find that I have to write them all done on a sheet of paper so that when I am arming soldiers I can match the weapons to the soldiers with the right skills.

There an info tab in the bottom left corner of the equip screen, where you can switch from viewing the soldier stats to the selected objects info (you need to select an object -click on it- before you can switch to the info tab) the skill used by the different fire modes is displayed there (some weapons use different skills depending on the fire mode)

what about some kind of mouseover-effect? The weapon stats could pop up when you hover the mouse over it...
I also thought about some kind of color-coding a frame around the weapon, but I think this would be rather confusing.
