The networks on the minimap leave very limited space due to the colored buttons.

In general, if I'm going to review networks  (spider web as seen in an online game), I don't need to be looking at the colored buttons since they take up a lot of space.

What do you think, place a button to only show the network switch and its filters?.

This time, you might consider a Frankentrans backport from extended

How do you deal with option selected that affect the net display when hiding?

As I mentioned in the related thread of extended, the only useful color buttons in network mode are the red buttons, and at the point the green buttons are a bit worth it. Other than that, it is worthless in network display mode. Therefore, it is kinder to the player if meaningless options are hidden.
I then tried to separate the open/close options by color but gave up after suffering from an unexplained crash on linux... Maybe I broke a strict code rule in linux.

These are applied. The settings are just hidden, not nonexistent.

I think the colored buttons take up a lot of space on the minimap, and it's not something I play with very often (activate factories, depot and city limits), after that I don't use them anymore. From there, I only activate and deactivate the networks without the need to look at those colorful buttons.

Although maybe it's just my particular way of seeing this.  :P

r10557 backports Ranran's division of "Selections" button into "Selections" and "Show networks" from Extended  :)

Thank you very much friend!.  8)

There is a small bug with the mouse wheel event, it doesn't respond to the scroll bar.

I can not reproduce. The wheel is working for me.

What happens is that the filter is displayed over the mini-map area and it calls the zoom event which doesn't let the scroll bar work.

Roboron

Ah, yes. If the mouse is over the minimap _and_ the list, the minimap seems to take preference capturing the mouse wheel over the list. This bug is also present in Extended. But I don't have idea how to fix.

Roboron

Ok, I fixed it in r10564, hopefully with unintended consequences  :-X

Thanks, but the logic behind had become really hacky over the years, especially since there was already a class for the minimap scrollpane ... see r10566, and also added to base.tab (with a slightly changed translation also in SImutranslator).

Yona-TYT

Thank you very much for implementing that!...  It helps a lot to have those independent filters on small screens.  :D
