My idea is add on hud how long burn uranium independently of batteries other power sources
It is quite stupid when the player appears to have 24 hours time to discharge the player runs out of uranium then suddenly sees that the battery discharge time is 20 min "for example"
That's why he thinks it would be good to add an icon and time to the HUD for how long it takes to burn uranium
How about showing an icon indicator behind the time as to what the source of surplus power is at that time: solar, reactor (uranium), hydrogen engine/generator, windturbine, battery. Multiple may apply at any time. That gives the player an indication of how temporary that endurance time is. When it shows a solar icon, then the player knows not to turn away from the sun. If from wind then he knows not to unlock the landing gear on a mobile grid. When from a hydrogen generator he knows it is dependent on hydrogen(tank) levels or ice inventory. When on battery the player knows it is his final source of power and needs to be careful with it. When it is using uranium reactor then the player knows it is stable for that time, but significantly shorter or limited thereafter.
