Something similar can be put in the xml file. Too complicated a programming change? Send me the code or give me access - I'll do it.
This has been in the works for at least a year, right? What's the hold up? Are you all waiting on the players to agree on something?
Just provide the XML and leave it to the greasemonkeys to make the game replayer.
First, XML is how the territories and bonuses are coded, not the game engine.
Second, this is being worked on, they would rather do one large update (with all new Game Log features) rather than many small updates.
Third, I like the idea of a game replayer, I think that this would require two sets of logs though, simple logs that are loaded regularly, and extended logs that are loaded by the replayer.
