Da Vinci Update

This is just a quick update because I know there are people still using this. It's functional, but the optional real time clock doesn't seem to display anything for some reason. I'll investigate this.


This is largely superseded by the built-in version, but since there are some functions the built-in one doesn't have, I'm planning to maintain this so long as it's not completely broken by a patch.


Do you get frustrated constantly going to the colony overview to check your resources? Me too. This is the solution!

Adds an information bar to the top of the screen, showing you all your resources, research, and funding, plus vacant housing/homelessnes and open jobs/unemployment. Each section has a tooltip showing the details, matching the one on the colony overview panel.

Optional Features
  • Make the bar take up the full width of the screen, with more spacing between elements.
  • Make screen scrolling with the mouse less sensitive, or disable it entirely.
  • Show a real time clock on the bar.
  • Adjust the vertical placement of the bar, so for example you can shift it down to use with the Cheats Menu.
  • Show numbers abbreviated as thousands, so 1.2k, 7k, etc.
  • Show the current storage of grid resources.
  • Adjust the scale of the bar, from 50% to 200% of the default.
  • Show the current work shift and Mars time.
To enable options, install Mod Config, and go to "Mod Options" in the main in-game menu.

Bonus feature: Clicking on resources in the bar will cycle through the buildings and resources that are holding them. Useful to find out where those two machine parts are hiding.

Currently supported languages: English, Korean

This mod supports Korean using Browneyes' Korean Translation mod.

I'm afraid not. If anything, it's even more broken. I'm not certain when I might get around to playing again so it's probably safest to assume that this will not be updated any time soon - I don't have much motivation to work on this since the majority of its features are integrated these days so it's no longer really necessary. Maybe bug Paradox/Haemimont to implement the remaining parts? :D

Is this working now?

@DreeseDatalink - not sure. I couldn't manage to motivate myself to look at this weekend since I'm pretty burned out on Surviving Mars. It might be that it's actually very simple, and I do intend to fix it, but right now can't really give an ETA, sorry.

Try os.time() for the realtime clock. Seems like they allowed that function.
