Research Costs Not Showing When Trading

Published on Wednesday, August 10, 2022 By PaulLach In Galactic Civilizations IV

This is another one that I have previously reported, but since it is still happening in 1.05, I am reporting it again.

When I met the Corporate Sector, a popup window appears letting me know who I met and asking me to choose an option for what I wanted to do.  I chose the option to trade with them, the Trade window opened and I could start adding items to be traded.  The bug is that the research cost of the items you are offering does not appear in the upper right-hand corner of the popup windows that appears when you hover over the item (see the first screen snapshot below).  However, when you hover over an item being offered by the other civilization, the research cost appears as expected (see the second screen snapshot below).

This is true whether you hover over an item available to be traded or an item that has already been selected to be traded.  Why would the research cost appear for the other civilization's items, but not for yours?  Normally, it appears for both.  This is something that only seems to happen when you meet a new civilization.
