qol Add show range for troughs (Tek and normal)

Suggestion

Allow an option when placing or once placed to toggle show range on troughs this way we can place Dino's around them or litter our base with them and not have any Dino's out of range. The mechanic exists with Dino leash or Tek generators, just needs implementing into the radial menu for troughs

I LOVE this idea!
I also like the idea of an electrically powered trough that is mid-range of the standard (60 slots) and tek troughs (100 slots & much slower decay rate when powered).
So create a refrigerated metal one that holds 80 slots, powered by a regular generator or wind turbine, and it's decay rate is slightly slower than the standard troughs but slightly faster than tek troughs.

what about being able to include or exclude dinos from troughs like with the tek turret ,

this way you can set up say a feeder full of fish meat and have is set to just feed otters., and sweet vegie cakes for snails.

we currently have to move the otters well away from another dinos , more buildings more lag .

they just need to rework the trough icon above dino's head. first, realign the other symbols from stacking in the same location. the mateboost heart-sign for example makes it hard to read the other, and vise versa. once you clear that, you can start tweaking the actual icons. for troughs though, i'd like a gray version for no-food cases and obviously a colored version for when there's appetizers. not hard to implement and doesn't require you to add electronics to a low-tier item.

This is a good idea although a Tek trough has the same spoil timer as a regular fridge (100x)  at the moment so a refrigerated trough would need to have less then a fridge but more then a hyaeana and meatpack with salt (16x) to make it a viable option. I feel anything less then 60x would rarely be utilised other then by tribes progressing towards endgame, but then that type of player would probably take 32x spoil time over regular troughs

Range would be a great addition to the trophs as it's a bit tedious to know currently and it can be risky to trust the current system where any troph in range of a tame puts a trough symbol above it. 

At the very least would be nice if the symbol only appeared to tames that can actually eat food from the troughs so you can know which ones are getting food or not.

I love this idea.  Refrigerated Metal Trough that shows a range. Yes Pleas.
