It would be great having a better overview of your factory(ies).. One of the ways that might be possible could be by adding some type of overlay filter which, when enabled, would make you able to see all construction as wireframes, where the color of an object would be some form of information:
If you turn on the electrician filter:
- All normal construction as blue transparent wireframes.
- All wire as a strong light emmiting blue (not transparent)
- All poles as dark blue (only lightly transparent)
- All power producers (e.g. coal power plant, biomass generator) would be a shade of green.
If you turn on the production filter:
- Something something... You would be able to see the flow of production, could be by only coloring conveyer belts and making everything else a transparent blue.
