The XII Labors
I like the idea, maybe put an animated graphic on the edge of the city overview (outside the city walls) of a farming village and ssomething like a tax collecter with a cart. if the cart is full then u have villages for that town that are ready for a demand/loot. something in the topleft corner or bottom right corner or both.In the past I did not support an alert for when farms are ready, but now I would. Perhaps the advisor triangle could light up when 1 or more farms are ready, so you could choose to go look for them. For most with the advisor they would all come ready within minutes of each other anyway.
So apart from it popping up all the time and looking nice, what do you actually not like about it? What functionality does it lack that the other had? Give us some clues pleaseNo functionality at all........ I don't use the city view and I don't like it popping up in full screen all the time.
