Change notifications about +/- relations to low priority

Post by Soar » Mon Nov 04, 2019 3:10 pm

Factions' relations improving or worsening due to wars or treaties spams the log and on-map event notifications heavily, but for some reason it's classed as medium importance, the same level as alliance treaties being signed between foreign powers, while factions joining wars is low priority for some reason. If the relations notifications were changed to low importance and the importance of factions joining wars was increased, the diplomatic events log option would be way more usable as a way to see what's going on in the world.

I haven't used to check the log messages so far (but I did use it in EU), I mostly like notifications on map. But if this is the case, I agree with Soar.

Weird, these are not the settings I see. A Joint DOW should even lead to a pop-up.

I've been experiencing this in a multiplayer game so can't currently reproduce it at will, but here's a few screenshots to illustrate the issue. Diplomatic notifications mode, when set to show top, medium, or low priority messages, respectively. Take note of the numbers listed by the messages: Switching to low priority mode adds 10 highly relevant messages that are buried under 139 (!) largely less useful ones.

Thanks @soar - I wasn't aware that changing options for the log would change icons on the map. And I was wondering where the icons had gone! :o

I did not forget you, just rather busy with a big feature. This is noted though!

After checking the code, it was actually on purpose! But I have revised it slightly.

here how it went

if a declaration of war is not involving you and is involving 2 nations that are not neighbors to you, then the importance loses 2 notches. So the top priority message went to low.

Now, i have amended that, in this case, it remains average. I would advise players not playing casually to play with average and top messages visible, top is not enough, btw. This is how I play!
