I was trying to show a guide how to build stuff, and it just didn't seem to be working for her.
Turned out that her panels were turned off, so she couldn't see options that were showing up, even though the code explicitly sets client.statpanel.
Most of the building/administration of my game uses a "master/detail" relationship, where the browser provides the master page -- links from which you choose the kind of thing you want -- and the panel provides the detail: the set of options available for that choice.
My UI is built on the assumption that the panels are visible, since they are absolutely required for my game.
I would be happy if setting client.statpanel forced the panels to show up if they weren't previously -- would that be possible/acceptable?
Otherwise I will be reduced to lots of warning messages asking the player to turn on their panels...
