"1 - Add allies resources balance to scoreboard - Allow you to view the income of your allies, their storage and their current drain. By ctrl-click you can request mass, energy or engies. By shift-click you can give mass, energy or selected unit to your allies. . . ."

I had to disable Supreme Score Board to get this to work. (Otherwise, i just saw the normal supreme score board display)

When I did run it with Supreme Score Board disabled, I was able to see this info. Unfortunately, the players were not grouped on the score board according to team. Which is a pretty major drawback. Is there a way to make this compatible with Supreme Score Board or otherwise to add that functionality?

When I hovered my mouse over the numbers, they changed into something completely inaccurate. When I did not have my mouse over the score board, it correctly showed 27 mass per second and 552 power income. When i put my mouse over it, it showed 358 mass income and 13k power.

it conflict with SSB and ecomanager.

when you get your cursor over you get the information about mass/e in storage

First of all, thanks a lot for this patch. Especially Number 1 makes me so happy :)

While we are at it, can we please do the same thing to Sparkies/T2 Engies?

4 - Mounting ui textures from mod directories - essentially mods will be able to change ui textures like the strategic icons.
This point did not get through with the patch. It was approved and merged on github, but init files do not have the change.

I like the addition to the allies resources to the scoreboard, with the sharing options. But the names are arranged by slot. Could this be changed so they're arranged by team first, then slot? That would improve the overview.

Seems the update broke the scoreboard in replays if you watch from a player's perspective. Obviously it's more important to have the anti-ghosting change and the added functionality in the scoreboard are really good for in-game, but it would be ideal if you could still track the progress of all players when watching replays from a POV. Could the code for the scoreboard change(s) have a new line inserted to only activate when it's not a replay?

FOR THE LOVE OF ALL THAT IS HOLY, please revert the Salem surf-n-turf toggle. Since they are built with it defaulted to off, after a while you end up with a mix of states and it's infuriating to realise after it's too late why half your boats didn't follow your orders.

Yes yes, noobs blah blah. The fact of the matter is that it increases micromanagement and that is bad in principle.
