    ONLY display Expansion availability when Expansion Tab is selected.

    Current System (Still in Beta)
    When you bring up the Left Building Menu, all available Expansion Tiles show up in a cute roped perimeter.
    This is not reflective on number of expansions in inventory.
    You may not even have any expansions that are available.
    You may be just trying to move or sell a building.
    You could be trying to go to Guild, Map, Messages, GVG, or GE Menu.

    Self explanatory

    Abuse Prevention
    This can be annoying when you are trying to Build residences, production, or goods buildings,
    or just trying to pull up left navigation menu to select units for battle.

    Visual Aids

    Less confusion or distraction when otherwise surveying your city or moving buildings.

    Nice visual. I'm okay with it; very minimal upgrade.

    I agree that the new expansion "availability" display while just in the Building Menu is an overkill. This display should only come up when looking at the selection for Expansions in the Building Menu.

    I feel bad for the person make this new change only to have it shot down if your proposal succeeded to change it. It looks fine to me, I rarely go to that menu anyway.

    I'm fine with the new display. Doesn't bother me when I'm building or selling anything.

    Fully agree. If I don't select the expansion menu. Guess what... I don't want to expand.

    I personally hate the little fences and sale signs. They keep making me think I can get an expansion when I can't. I would prefer it if they only showed up when I had one available to build and the resources needed.

    I agree. Even trying to look at BPs it acts like I'm trying to expand, I know there's a confirmation but knowing if I screw up I'm stuck with it I'd rather just not see it until I select it.

    I'm undecided right now for I both like and dislike how it is right now.

    It doesn't bother me that it comes up every time you open the build controls. I am on top of expansions more than anything- I watch them like a hawk and open them as soon as I have the resources.

    Overall, I like them. It helps me count out the squares.
