See values of the parameters without changing them

Post by nikoliazekter » Thu May 11, 2017 4:04 pm

I like to use experimental plates to come up with these superoptimized organisms but it's very hard to apply the gained knowledge because we have no idea what the parameters are. I can see the slider position, I can move slider just a little bit to kind of guess the value before I moved it but then I lose precision.

I think it would be great if pop up window with information about the parameter which you get by tapping on the parameter's name also showed the current value of the parameter. Same thing would be useful for experimental plate parameters which currently have no pop up windows. Maybe someone will come up with a better idea where to add this data.

Very agreeable on that suggestion.

I agree that the values should be accessible is a straightforward way. In the meantime, the only tip I can give is to move the slider above or below the one you want to figure out so that the sliders line up. When you move the one you want to know about, you know where to move it to see the value. It's still imprecise and a hassle but this can help.

Other suggestion I have on this, is that there could be a box to write the value we want, since sometimes it is kinda hard to put the slider on the right position due to pixel-realnumber conversion, and on that box could be the actual value for that parameter

Some others (including me) had that same thought in the past. In the end I had to agree with Petter that it would clutter up the UI too much.

Hey, how about making the preview value be clickable (the value that shows up in the top of preview) so we can click and set the values ourselfs in case we want a value that is not easy to put scrolling the circle. In adition (and in order to solve this thread problem) when the user clicks on the ball (without needing changing it) the value pops up in the preview.
Might that be a solution?

Maybe the game can have 2 switchable UIs, the normal one (slider UI) its like
Red color: ---×------ or
Radiation level: ×---------

And the second UI (Box UI) would be like
Red color: [0.37] or
Radiation level: [0.01]

And you can click the box to change the value manually (maybe just 4 or 5 decimal places of preciseness

Just seeing the current values in brackets next to the parameters would be enough to make me happy.
