Specifics: The GAME LOG is great, but a replay button would be more sophisticated and more pleasing to the eyes. Games you can use as a template as to what I am talking about (use for an example if you will) are Age of Wonders & more especially Age of Wonders II. These games offer simplified, condensed replay sequences of battles between opposing armies. As this is a lower graphic game (compared to AoW2 at least) it could be even more simple.
This will improve the following aspects of the site: will improve the ease with which players on a map can view what transpired on the previous turns. It is also helpful to learn strategy from others- whether viewing your own game, previous games or games others have played independently of the player viewing.

Sounds like a good community contributed mod. *wink*
We already have the "Handy Game History" script - although I am unsure if it still works correctly at present...
However - once Game Log 2.0 comes out - then a full replay system would be available as an add-on script...
Which would be awesome!!
