What would you like to see in Freeciv? Do you have a good idea what should be improved or how?

Popup Location Center Bad

Postby GriffonSpade » Sat Feb 10, 2018 5:27 pm

Popups should not appear dead center in the screen, where they obscure whatever the player is looking at, but at the middle-top of the screen, where it is still prominent, but not obstructive.

They pop up in the middle. Manually moved/edited the other to the top to show the better popup location.

Yes, I often scroll horizontally to see where a unit is going to, if the popup hides the way points. That's on the right or left of the unit, whatever is wider.

Update: That's a reported bug.
