Extra Detail in Sent Missions
More information is now provided in notifications about the location you are sending missions to. It will additionally inform you of the terrain type and the square ownership:

GM ThunderCat [DEVS] dispatched caravans to GM Stormcrow [DEVS]'s hostile sovereign Ancient Forest[0|-2201] in Newlands

This applies to all actions, so a set of notifications for claiming Sovereignty will look like the following

 GM ThunderCat's [DEVS] units from Center of Learning begin returning from your sovereign Clay Seam[388|-1817] in High Hills
 Military units from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS] town Center of Learning outbound to unclaimed Clay Seam[388|-1817] in High Hills with Hostile intentions.

Your Sovereignty Notifications

You will now receive notifications if an army who is not yours lands on your sovereign square:

 Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of an allied army from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

 Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of a confederated army from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

 Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of a NAP'd army from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

 Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of a neutral army from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

 Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of a hostile army from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

Serfs at your sovereign Clay Seam [388|-1817] in High Hills report the arrival of confederated harvesting caravans from GM ThunderCat's [DEVS]'s town of Center of Learning

Gatherers' Demise
You will now receive an IGM as well as a notification if your gatherers are killed on a square.

Faction ticker change
Ticker Symbol for Fratri Hominis has been changed from [BROTH] to [FRATR], to distinguish it from the Brotherhood of Kerala.  This now means that [FRATR] is unavailable as an alliance ticker symbol.

Enjoy!

Nice. What sometimes bothers me about notification lists is this: it's difficult to see at-a-glance what happened, and it's difficult to scan-search for something.

I don't know what the solution is though; my own thought experiment might involve a strip of icons representing unit types, actions, and territory, but it might look like hieroglyphs, so could be viewed as inaccessible to the beginner!

Hope fully the expanded notifications data will allow filtering of notifications at a later stage...

This is cool, but if we are going to be seeing messages under trade about gatherers on our sovereignty squares, could we maybe get a longer "memory" for notifications?  A lot of the time I can't even see in the past 24 hours of my trade notifications.

Are getting more than 500 trade notifications in 24 hrs?

Very possibly, GM TC.  I often send 50-100 newb care packages per day, which would be 100-200 notifications (when they leave and when they deliver).  Plus caravan harvesting, cotter harvesting, herbalists, etc.  Also acceptances of buy and sell orders in trade hubs and for city to city trade.

I know I don't look like I'm doing much, but I'm actually quite busy.

Did the number of notifications recently get expanded?  Within the past couple of weeks?  Because I'm going from my experience a week or so ago when I was checking trade notifications for herbalists and didn't see some from within the past day or so.

Are you using the notifications page rather the ones on the main page?

You can filter by trade etc

The sovereignty notifications should be in the sovereignty section so you should still be able to filter by trade

If the sovereignty notifications are in the sovereignty section, that addresses my immediate concern, at least I will still be able to filter by trade.  (Not that I have all that much sovereignty, but there are other people who do who might be getting a lot of notifications about that.)

And yes, I do filter by trade.  Check my history and Ellery's history in terms of trade notifications.  I think you'll find the volume is quite high.  Wink

I would like to suggest another change to notifications, that will slighlty reduce the total number and make it easier to follow.

When you send harvesters to a square occupied by forces you will always get two notifications. Could these two be added to each other so you get only one notification?

There is also the situation when you send resources to a hub. When they arrive you get two identical notifications, could one be removed?

Currently we have a notification when we send out troops, and when they arrive at their destination. But we don't have one when they arrive back home. Can we please add a notification when the troops arrive back home? Thanks.
