De/Construction material visible

You can. Click the block then go to properties..

After doing this thousands of times it gets tedious~  (Eg, when you realize you had the wrong material selected for parts of a long pipe, or for a construction that needs to withstand lava, and need to figure out which parts need replacing.)

It could list the material of a tile or building in the hover-text, and that wouldn't be hard to add.

Someone made a mod for this last year, making tiles different colors based on materials used. I wonder if Klei intends to add this to the base game eventually... I'm not sure if this workaround is still compatible with the latest version.

Interesting...  I wonder how hard it is to make a mod without any official mod support yet?  Surely it would be very sensitive to changes in the base game though, yeah.

Though I do expect Klei might color materials differently at some point in the future.

Yes, it would be nice but isn't really necessary. As it just takes 2 seconds to click properties.

Perhaps that information could be displayed in the information that shows up in the mouse over box (although there already is a lot of information there). Would also be nice if I mouse over something at the bottom of the screen, the boxes go up the screen rather than down, since I can't see it when it goes off the bottom.
