Adding more feedback over chat
« on: 12 July 2015, 16:00:30 »
I thought about adding more feedback to the chat. Feedback means things like "upgrade xyx finished" in this case.
I added this but now it lacks of more ideas for feedback-sentences.
It would be nice if you suggest some more feedback-sentences which could be useful please.
I thought about something like "building xyx is finished". Would this be nice? Should they be techtree specific? (like only if a 'castle' is finished you will get feedback)

Secret Hint: To play online join the IRC #megaglest-lobby on freenode which is the lobby chat ingame. So you can chat with or wait for people in the lobby without running megaglest all the time.

For me most preferred info would be: "you have idle workers/slaves/robots" (name should be dynamic because those aren't always workers), but it also shouldn't spamming chat too much (some delay somewhere), which probably isn't so easy to do  :-X.

This is harder... because every unit with a build skill is counted as a worker at the moment :/

Since this topic is sticky but nothing happens here, i just added the console message for buildings now and made a pull request.

Maybe this will rise some attention for the topic ;D

I think it would be a good change, as helpful in some cases as the messages that inform players that an upgrade has completed.

I'll test your PR later to help get some activity on it. :) Thanks for submitting it.
