Unused RP are automatically allocated to (unpaused) researchable techs #1472
My first thought was that the idea seems fine/good to prevent folks, especially beginners, from losing out on RP, though a SitRep would be most helpful, both to bring the issue to the attention of the player and so that they could know which tech actually got the RP without having to add a bunch of techs to the queue to see which one had gotten some RP.
But, then I considered that we are talking about adding tech lines where researching one tech might lock you out of others, or at least make them extra expensive. It would not be good to have this auto-allocation trigger any such result. I imagine we could try adding ways to prevent that, but I would be concerned about their reliability.
If such tech lines are added, this could be revisited, or restrictions could be added.
(I think there are better ways to make players choose between content options, however that's a forum discussion.)
Lack of a display of progress for techs not currently on the queue is arguably a separate issue.
I'm not so concerned about showing what techs are getting allocations automatically though, as if players care enough to know, they can just enqueue some techs.
