Hello at all,

I would like to suggest a change in the prospecting functionallity. It would be nice to be able to declare a position from where the "geologists" begin to "search" for "ressources". There could be a notification if they fail to find something and it could cost the half then or something like this. But it is just annoying to have an Iron Ore Mine on the other side of the map and spent money for it.

I imagine it like this:
- Select a point from where on the geologist shall search
- If they succeed: Place a mine in the surrounding of the point given and pay the full price
- If they fail: No mine is constructed and only the half price (full price? 3/4 of the price?) is paid.
