What if not finished buildings (aka nanoframes) had 50% transparent and blinking icons on map overview (aka when you zoom out)?

It could also help you spot that 99% buildings you left unfinished you thought are finished. It's also for all those "oh crap there's a stardust" moments when you micro your glavies and play on max zoom only to zoom in and see that it was 1% abandoned nanoframe.

Transparent will probably make them hard to see (but could work).

Blinking is just horrible.

What would be nice is snipers, lances, etc not wasting their shots on those 1% complete lotus. :/
If I were a dick I'd exploit this behavior to make non-hold fire snipers/lances/etc essentially useless.

One of best defense vs dominatrix that feels almost scummy to use.

As the nanoframe subject is brought up: do they uncloack scythes?

No they do not decloak.

Anarchid by blinking I mean modulating brightness or transparency with sinusoid fashion between say 35% and 65% with decent frequency (around 2.5 Hz?)

you can adjust ETA build timers so that its visible with icons so its SOMEwhat of a fix, but christ I REALLY want to be able to see eta of disarm and EMP, it is fricking tiny and I see no reason why it should be, I dont even know my units are stunned from the icons, THOSE could be blinking.

I think ETA info is clutter and a bad idea to display it. Also you don't know enemy's ETA. I agree that some creative non invasive ways could be used to convey more info about status (at overview level).

If you want to show the thing is not finished, just use a half-colored icon. Like teamcolor from bottom to middle, and white from middle to top of the icon.

Semi-transparent nanoframes sounds like a good idea to me. To do this you're looking at engine dev or a reimplementation of nanoframes in lua.
