Some tips for improvement

Post by DaMi »

Would it be possible to set the city name animation to turn off when one arrives in a city? I would be fine if it could be set in Preferences of the game.

Would it be possible to implement mouse wheel support? This would be useful, among others, when browsing items in the Market.
I use the Hid2Ami and it works great in AmigaOS 3.2.1, I think it would help the game as well.

Yes, possible. One of the future updates will have it as an option.

No idea but we can give it a try.

In the Contract window there is possible to select a contract from a keyboard via arrow keys. Confirmation can be done via Enter key. But only via the big one only. The small Enter does nothing. Would it be possible to modify it to a small Enter too? (I play the game on A1200)

The final approval can be done via large or small Enter. Would it be possible to reject this approval via the Esc key?

When there is a larger list of Contracts, Tasks, Items or Cities, would it be possible to create a shortcut for moving to first and last item in the list? Someting like CTRL (or SHIFT) + Arrow Keys? It would then be much faster to go through such a list when it contains multiple items (like 20 or more).

This can be done easily. The next update will have this feature.

Doable, of course, but needs a little bit more of work.

I like the sorting by article name, tonnage, value, etc. in the Contract window. Would it also be possible to change the sorting direction? So if I eg. press key 3, the table will be sorted in descending order (this is already implemented), but another press of key 3 will sort the table in ascending order?

I was thinking about 1—8 descending (as it's presently) and Shift + 1—8 ascending. But we'll see if pressing the same number can be implemented or is too tricky.

Shift + 1—8 as an ascending order is fine.
