Sorting topic

Just a short remark on the edit mode:

When you display buildings, attractions etc. an have them sorted 'by name', the sorting string is oriented on the original names, but not on the translated names.
Thus, you get no sorting at all, especially in non-english and non-german languages.

Greetings, Oliver

Current order -

City buildings: Level
Attractions: Object name
Industries: Transtated name
Trees: Translation name

Someone want to be sorted by object name, someone want to be sorted by translated name, someone want to be sorted by level.

maybe one can add a third tab to sort by Level.

Showing the 'names' is sometimes pointless. As for instance the German translations of city building names are themselves small stories.

Oh sorry,

I didn't meant to have a new sorting order. Just i wanted to point out, that the object names will not display in game. Thus, there will be no order at all.
Only the translated names are displayed by the game.
