Identifying places named in the game log

Postby crustykev on Sun Nov 27, 2011 1:53 pm

I am currently involved in a First Nations of the Americas game.
Like many games, it uses local names for territories.
In the case of the First nations game, many of these names are unfamiliar to me.

The First nations map is huge, and so its extremely difficult, just by reading the game log, and seeing unfamiliar territory names to know where other players are attacking.
e.g. "2011-11-26 22:20:34 - Ron D assaulted Muisca from Palenque and conquered it from crustykev"

So here's my suggestion.
By clicking a line in the game log, the attacking and defending territories become highlighted by boxes, using the same boxes that highlight the bonus cards held by a player when he is playing a set of cards.
Or.
By clicking a territory named in the game log, that territory becomes highlighted by a bonus card box.

I think this tool can help : viewtopic.php?f=527&t=123669

Just found the tool 2-3 days ago, and used for finished games. Whether it can be used for ongoing games, I don't know, because I have only foggy games ongoing.

Naah, he's asking for something else afaik. There was something that made it hard to do (if I remember correctly), but I'll have a look.
