Hitting the shortcut key “I” brings up the Diplomacy / Events tabs
Currently these are both sorted by “most recent activity” or ordered by event tick.
What if there was also a second or third way available to filter and organize these messages ?
A. EVENTS filtering
A.1. First ordered by most recent event or tick
A.2. Second filter by either ALL or individual or multiple participating players ?
A.3. Third filter by ALL or user selected categories or types of events ?
During a recent 64 player game, I was able to determine these categories of events.
System reporting ( I forget what this was ? I think there was only one or two events like this. )
uncategorized category ( just in case catch all , could be patched later )
Experimentation bonus or Science breakthroughs
Battle Reports ( should include loss of undefended stars , should include liquidated ECON )
player Cash trades
player or AI Tech trades
KOs & Quitters & AFKs
Formal Alliance issues = establishing , declaring war
( Formal Alliance carrier transfers )
earned renown or badge from another player
and any additional categories that I have missed, or invented by @Mastery or other players.
B. DIPLOMACY filtering
B.1. First ordered by most recent event or tick
B.2. Second filter by either ALL or individual or multiple participating players ?
B.3. The third filter can be like a user created tags, not folders, sort of like how Gmail or this forum allows messages to be tagged into groups or categories. So either ALL tags or individual or multiple user created tags.
EDITs : tweaked my list of feature requests a third time.
