Have been looking at the sovereign and faction creation tools, and the biggest annoyance so far is that you cannot see what the race do when creation factions, and you could not see what your faction did when creating sovereigns.
So I have made some pictures as a suggestion as to where you could put this info, namely in the big picture area in the right part of the screen, where you look at your faction colours / sovereign.
Lets start with a look at how the Faction creation screen looks like right now.
What I suggest is that near the guy to the right, you would put in the abilities in they're famous circles, so you could see what you have picked, and what your race does, as shown in the following picture.
Red relates to the racial ability, blue is the picked Strengths and Weakness.
This will provide with an area to quickly overview what you have selected, and also allow you to read the tooltip of the chosen race, so you don't have to memorize every single detail.
And while on the subject, I would propose a similar change to the sovereign creation screen, to ease up memory and let me sweetly and quickly look through all my choices.
The red lines and square are for the faction ability, and the blue ones show me moving the equipment section.
Hope you appreciate the time spent on creating these pictures and hope you like the idea.
