Tick information for every diplomacy communication


#1

Now:
Every event is marked with the tick it occured in.
Every diplomacy communication is marked with the date and time of it’s sending.

Request:
I would like every diplomacy communication to additionally be marked with the tick of it’s sending.

I am sorry, I am not arguing or anything, but I am just intered in the reason why this is needed. In what situation will this be needed?


#3

When trying to match trades to diplomatic texts, things can get confusing. Having the tick number makes this easier.

But admit it is a “nice to have” request.


#4

Its a bit tricky because the diplomatic texts don’t open up the game in the database when sending. Its just like a mini forum. I would have to open up the game and have a look what tick it is. Not a huge deal but It is more work for the server.

I’d like to revive consideration for this request in case anything has changed in the codebase in the last 3 years to make it easier. I provided intelligence to an ally on a star he can’t scan. When either of us review it later, it’d be nice to know how many ticks have passed since it was observed. (I had to post a second message giving the tick number because I didn’t think to do it when I first wrote it.)

This came up on the Discord #modding chat recently discussing how time is displayed in the game.
