Please stop flooding us with tooltips and symbols!
What you’re doing is a nightmare in the making!
More and more symbols, more and more tooltips!
Tooltips have considerable downsides, especially for cognitive performance!
It is important to be aware of the fact that they remove the need to memorize things,
because they’re literally everywhere and extremely easily accessible!
Instead of memorizing it, the brain will always simply look it up!
It’s just a muscle movement away!
They’re completely unnecessary,
sometimes not visually fitting!
There is a better approach to what you want to achieve,
and it’s called “What’s this?”
At the bottom of the right-click-menu.
Always at the bottom, never at the top!
And behind this rightclick-option, there’s a window thoroughly explaining whatever the thing is!
You can do that for everything!
I know this, because I’ve implemented this in the past!
When your code can check for a rightclick,
and when your code can spawn a window,
then this is absolutely possible to implement!
Everyone always knows where to find it!
Everyone always knows where to look something up!
It’s completely intuitive!
It’s completely non-intrusive, especially for older players!
It does not visually impact the game!
It can not pop up when you don’t actually want it!
People will memorize it instead of looking it up, because it’s more complex than simply moving the mouse, while at the same time more informative! It also creates a distinct situation (there’s a window now) compared to dropping a small amount of information onto the screen next to everything else!
