After modifying the “menupanel.json”, the tech tree preview will be disabled/broken. It can happen by merely moving the position of “MenuPanel.ViewPort.xorigin” or “…yorigin”.

Here’s the steps to reproduce the issue:

  1. Have a clean game without any UI modification in “menupanel.json” or related files. And tech tree preview enabled. AKA, the tech tree preview works

  2. Adjust values of the mentioned place, for example

  3. Then restart the game and test the tech preview feature

It should work consistently when adjusting the related numbers, including position and width/height of the panel/ techtree button.

Hi @WipeIt7314 !

Sorry for the delay. Thank you for your detailed ticket, we are now tracking this issue ≧(´▽`)≦

I have realized why this happens. Basically, your tech_tree_preview panel need to be overlapping with your techtree button / civ emblem to enable the toggle function.

Also, please improve the quality of this nice feature. We would like to see the current researched tech instead of the max tech. And a military unit icon is more intuitive than a military tech icon.
