I never leave it closed, only for the prestige collection or to get at the search form I close it.

I will admit, the search bar could be in a better spot.

I don't understand why this seems to be an issue. Good housekeeping habits suggest that if the adv res bar is closed when you have finished using it, then it will be closed when you next come on line. I never leave it open, and only open it to check on adv res builds and quantities.


Same here.  I don't like to keep it open if I am not using it.



I think these two posts help prove the point that the current setup for showing advanced resources could be better.  Advanced resources, and keeping your queues full are a huge part of efficient Empire management.  

If you had an "arrow" to hide basic resources, would it still be good housekeeping to hide that information?   

My point (the same one I made with the compulsory friends list) is that having options to obtain more information in less clicks should be a goal of the interface, not finding interesting ways to hide that information.

I'm not suggesting that they force people to view the information, just adjust the popup so that it doesn't cover the search window or the daily prestige.  In other words, I'm adding my voice in agreement with the OP.

If we had the option for an adjustable pop out window for announcements it would solve half of this problem and four or five other ones I have (key word "I", I know most don't).  It would make life much easier if we could choose which announcements we wanted to be displayed and add a dismiss option to each announcement.  For instance you could turn on announcements for when adv resource queues finish, or building or tech queues are empty.  Then dismiss each announcement as you take care of the problem.  Basically a "Hey Stupid Window" to remind us of things we missed.

I've mentioned similar ideas in other threads and very few others seem to have a problem with this, but I'm still screaming into the wind hoping to make enough noise that it may get future consideration. 

I'm off topic, but I'm curious what the average "fill rate" of queues are for the average player?  Is it unusual for a player to try and stay well above 95% for adv resources and near 100% for Research and Construction?  It's difficult to have the basics in stock to set 10k queues all the time for non active prestige accounts.     

With that being said, I would agree with the "less information crowd" that it would probably be healthier to just let stuff sit idle and not worry about it, but that is easier said then done.

On regards to the feeling to make the daily bonus more obvious,

While I do not doubt that with UI changes various aspects in Illyriad have become slightly less noticeable and therefor easier to overlook, the daily bonus is a freebie and perhaps should be more appreciated? The developers did not have to place in a daily bonus ability in illyriad, with the option including one free prestige, perhaps we should be content to remember to minimize the adv resource bar and be happy overall with the ability to get a prestige per day, with no cost to you other then remembering day to day?

Would be nice to just recieve the reward once every 24 hrs. upon login. (sitters excluded ofc.)

The prestige bonus is basically a reward for being active on a regular basis, there is no real reason why it should require so much clicking every time. 

I prefer things smooth and practical is all.
