View Full Version : Game log - incoming shipments?
11-18-2008, 11:10 PM
I looked and didn't see if this has been mentioned before, so apologies if I missed it.
The game log currently shows our outgoing shipment activity, and the estimated arrival time. Is there any particular reason that it can't also be updated when someone sends us a shipment? So if I make a trade agreement with someone 8 hours away, I won't know for 8 hours whether or not the person actually sent the goods to me, where if I saw an entry in my game log that it was sent, I could be rest assured the goods are on the way.
In addition, it would be nice to be able to refer to when those goods would be arriving and plan accordingly.

I might be misunderstanding you but,
There is already a feature for that. Its the "Transports" box on the same panel where your Scrolls, Game Log and Scribe Wall are found. It comes before Game Log.

Holy moly, am I ever a moron. I have no idea why I have never ever noticed that before. It's not like I don't use the other buttons it's right next to.

There is one thing that I consider to be an unnecessary thing. That is in the game log we get a message saying such and such is enroute and then one to say it arrived. Well I need the its arrived message but as you can check in the shipping log to see that its enroute why fill up the game log with unnecessary information.
It doesn't need to be duplicated. Once its arrived we don't need the message that's its enroute to tell us that it was enroute. We know that because it's arrived. And while it's actually on the way we don't need anything in the game log as it's in the shipping one.
Leaving that message out of the game log would make it easier to look though and save a lot of messages. I think you could remove that from the game log and no one would find it any harder to play. Might even find it easier with less messages to look though.

I disagree with adding it to gamelog, it's cluttered enough as it is and incoming stuff can be found under transports.
That being said, transports should be made into a universal screen showing all shipments to/from all your cities, categorized by city and direction, so I can see all that stuff from whatever city I'm working on at the time.
