Proposal: clear messages in the message centre
« on: September 04, 2008, 08:37:45 AM »
I have a Simutrans game running the entire day. There are a lot of messages piling up - once in while to be checked for need of interaction ... It would be nice to have the option of clearing that list when a check had been performed.

Thanks!

Saving and reloading the game, isn't that an option?  ::)

Not sure I quite understand this one but heres a guess. You can turn off all unwanted messages in the Mail Box, see icon on tool bar. The best way to receive messages is just a notification on screen. then you can just delete it after solving the problem. IE 'Vehicle can't find a route'

Open Message Centre

Go to Options and toggle appropriate message types (eg industry, City, AI, Problems, No Route) to either scroll along bottom of screen left most option or to close automatically after a short period middle option

Saving and Reloading the game will clear the message centre history

Would be difficult to implement a filter for the Message center, just to show the messages you want? (in addition to the way the messages are shown)

Go on, it is open source ... no need to ask me for everything ;)

Well there were three repetitive answers so the message (no pun intended) may be received.

You keep up your good work Prissi, you know you are appreciated.

Thanks for your comments. That's right saving and reloading clears that message list. For my thinking that is a little massive workaround. I believe in prissi's great work that reloading is not struggling with memory garbage any more, so this option is a valid one.

Still I would like a "clear messages" button ;)
