Thanks a lot Madeline,

Hmmm, I can't remember if you can see the strongest unit inside ANY city
(sorry).  I guess from a tactical/logical point of view it doesn't make
sense that you can see what the 'enemy' has in its defences.

However I think it's definitely required for your own cities - OK, I'll make
a wish-list request.

Also, I'll log the messaging 'issue' request as a bug separately cause it
really causes huge issues.  Yeah, we're all playing only one turn a night
which means that we don't get ANY messages!!!  ;)

Bye the way - freeciv is AWESOME!!!!!!!!

Thanks for hours of fun.

Attached patches modify city_turns_to_build to
return FC_INFINITY if the great wonder was
already built. This makes the production string
display "never" (or "-" if you have the concise
city prodution option set) in this case.

Note that for wonders that are already built,
the production string will already show a "(B)"
instead of "(w)", and you will get an event
message saying that the city is building some-
thing that has already been built.

This does not exist in freeciv; you can make a
new wishlist ticket for it (or a post in the
wishlist forum) and someone might eventually
get to implementing it (it would not be very
hard I think).

By the way, is this supposed to show the strongest
unit in every city (e.g. enemy cities)? Or just
the cities that you can seen inside?

This sounds like you are playing longturn. ;)

Anyway, I previously implemented offline events
for that flavour of freeciv to solve the exact
problem that you have outlined. You can find the
patch in the longturn bug tracker:

Although if I were to port it to 2.2 (since it is
likely that no new "big" features will be added to
the 2.1 series, just bug fixes) I would modify it
to also store events you receive while connected
(currently it only stores and resends events that
occured while you were not connected), so that it
is generalized to a kind of "event history".

If you would like this feature, start a new ticket
and I'll see what I can do.
