I recently came back to this game after a long hiatus and am working on resurrecting some of my old userscripts. I am particularly interested in working on the layers module. I need help coming up with useful layers and testing preliminary versions.
Current work in progress:
#1 - Voronoi stars and empires (two layers)
#2 - Transport links
#3 - Voronoi empires only
#4 - Scanning borders
#5 - Mix of layers
#5 - Clustering metric
Some of these won’t be released because of big optimisation problems. Others are of dubious usage. That second last one for example is fleet halos with centre of mass icons for industry, ships and carriers (which sounds more useful than it ever is). The last one is an indication of clustering, this is probably useful but currently not very well visualised.
If you’ve got any ideas make a post below and let me know. Extra kudos if you make a paint mockup
