More user interface + comments
Firstly Thx for setting this up.
Secondly (and this has most likely been discussed elsewhere but I cant find it)
why are the actual GP graphics not being used?
I find the text implementation very difficult and I know I am not alone.
Thirdly, I suggest placing a turn notification close to the board. Myself and the fellow players spend most of our time looking at the board and many times already I have not seen that it was my turn because the indicator was below the screen horizon.
Fourthly, Is there a way to indicate when you are taking a dig (terraforming a non native planet) either with ore or with a booster. There was a time when I thought I was using the booster and I paid 4 ore by accident - this kind of mistake can be crippling esp if its in the first round (which it was). It would just be nice to receive some kind of notification before you take the action which kind of dig you are using esp when you have the option of doing both.
Fifthly, I have made a small guide for boosters and tech tiles (and attached it to this comment - plz feel free to use it anyway you see fit).

I keep getting errors regarding uploading the image. I have resized it to well under the required limit. Plz let me know if the image is actually being uploaded and is accessible.
Thanks for all the feedback. I think that the turn notification in the sidebar is definitely possible soon ("Your turn!" in green, for example). Or do you mean for mobile users?
The actual GP graphics are not being used due to rights issues. We could remake the tiles / boostsers with our own graphics... but we made it so that hovering over it shows you exactly what it does in a tooltip.
Regarding the cost, you can hover the mouse on desktop over the planet to see what you will spend to build, including the number of qic. I always do that when building on a planet of another color.
I agree that the whole viewer could use many improvements, and I realize that a lot of things (like the tooltips) are made for desktop.
I dont mean mobile but Im sure that must be some special kind of hell to implement for Gaia. I dont think its just a problem for mobile, myself and my fellow game players have discussed not being able to see easily when it is your turn and I do have the sound notification turned on too. Could an indicator not just be in the space between the map and the tracks?
I might be able to help w the graphics - I will send you a private note
By the way, the "Your turn" was added in the sidebar :)
With the favicon changing, it should be enough for now. Sound notifications don't work anymore for the most part because recent browsers block them (because of malicious ads...). Push notifications are an option worth investigating.
