Location of attacks

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

Location of attacks

Postby jpsm » Mon Nov 23, 2020 10:49 pm

When an unit is attacked, the messages only inform that it survived the pathetic attack of opponent's unit but don't inform which city. Sometimes there are other units in a siege around that city and you want to attack them before they attack, build city wars if it is a new city, or buy another soldier if the siege have many soldiers. Because the message don't inform the location of the attack the player need to scroll the map to find out where such a thing happened..;.
No need to say that when the unit is lost and you don't know where this is to buy another soldier this is ever more annoying...

You can enable messages not only for surviving/lost attack, but also for results of your own attack.
And clicking at message will focus map view at the place of incident - is it what you asked for?

If you double-click the message (or select it and click the "Goto Location" button), it should center the main view on the place where it happened.
