Anyway, Thorsten has started to roll out a few designs of his own and tries to keep the tools fairly general so that they can be re-used by others- so here's the revised version of the Shuttle propellant dialog.
 
[[File:Propellant dlg02.jpg|thumb|right|an example of the detail dialog which allows to set levels of fuel and oxidizer separately (and the overview dialog shows the usable propellant then, i.e. the minimum of the two) - for aircraft, this would be somewhat simpler.]]
 
 
Basically all that needs to be done is:
 
* one line to declare the widget
* one line to place it
* one line to attach context help to it
* and have a support structure to update the values and define the context help strings
 
This might be a good time to gather ideas for features - what do you think e.g. the box to display a text/property value should be able to do automatically?<ref>{{cite web

The general idea is to use semi-transparent 'content gauges' on a background raster image to show where the tank is located and how full it currently is - double-clicking any tank will bring up a detail window which allows to set the content (here propellant and oxidier separately, this is rocket fuel...) and also shows the current tank pressures and temperatures.
