Hello,

I just occurred to me to ask: Would it be feasible to add a feature to log in-game text to a file (with timestamps in in-game-time)?

The Captain would sure appreciate the convenience of such a log file ...

At least, the text from the scrolling text box at the bottom of the Strategic Map Screen and possibly, the text that appears on the left side of the Tactical Screen...

To much work for too little reward? The truth is, I might not use this as much as I thought I would, when I asked... Maybe the programmers around here saw that and didn't want to tell me it a dumb request... Who knows?

While adding code that dumps text to a file is easy, I personally don't see the benefit in this case, and you didn't state any, either. So I have no interest in this, and I assume other coders to feel the same.



Saren threw his head back and screamed in impotent fury, before falling to his throne, head in his claws, trembling in horrified disbelief.

Then he heard a faint chime as Sovereign subscribed to her ECHO channel.

If you want, you can donate to me. This will not affect how and what I code, and I will not code specific features in return. I will be thankful though.

I see it as "written" reports that I could scan at length to assist in planning as opposed to "verbal" reports that vanish from memory... Useful for playing and maybe during a YouTube play through... But then I know that everyone's time is precious... aww
