It would be very helpful if the unit designer, structure build menu, and other interfaces could include some way to get stats on the various objects, for example weapon range and damage, and rate of fire, sensor range, armour values. The unit designer includes a bit of this but it is not that detailed. The intelligence report screen could be more useful if it gave stats in technologies, like stats for a newly researched weapon or armour upgrade.
I know there is some info on the betaguide website but it is very out of date, for an earlier version of the game, and does not include some things now found in the latest versions (for example lancer bunkers).
It would be best if the stats display methods pull the stats from the game data files rather than a manually inputted text so they stay correct when new versions of the game are made without someone having to remember to update them.
