Station coverage

Just like you can have province view and see how far influence goes could you add station (Namal, Civilian, Diplomatic) view.

Diplomatic stations have no 'range' as far as I know.

Support view already includes Naval station support range boost (which is MUCH larger than a standard system with no naval). Trade view also includes trade station ranges.

What are you looking for explicitly? Where you have and have no naval stations perhaps? It's not too hard to see from the default system view with the station icons.

By clickin on Naval View instead of Trade View I would see the area my military can go to. I have influence over.
I see Province view as empires influence not NS influence.

Yeah province view really just shows a bubble around the systems that are forming a given province. The problem with a view for 'where your military can go' is each fleet is unique and different capability for distance traveled. Beyond this the divergent FTL methods of the races would make calculating this view incredibly complex.

What about some sort of Influence bubble.

All of the views provide some good information. Are you thinking of something along the lines of "culture" in Sins?

He is probably thinking of the one view in SotS1 that had spheres of influence depending on how much pop was on a planet?

Also, the SotS1 view that let you see bubbles around each fleet showing how far it could move in a single turn and approximate fleet strength (based on number of ships, the sphere was more or less opaque.

I like the idea of an influence bubble.
If adding the ship bubble is easy then that would solve the problem of how far a ship can go with current lvl of suplies.
