    Flag a character - a suggestion for the user interface

    Hi

    Assume you're playing as the King of Denmark. You're busy bringing the gospel to the heathens in the Baltic, but you need to be ready if an opportunity presents itself in Sweden or Saxony.

    So how about this: You select the Swedish king and the submenu "Flag Character". Here you select that you want to be notified if he dies and if his spouse dies. So you're ready to either take advantage of a weak heir ascending to the throne or marry your daughter to the grief struck King.

    I realize that the current notification settings probably can inform me of this already. But I don't want to be notified when the King of Far-Awayistan loses his wife. That's just information clutter. I want to be able to select the rulers around me and select for which specific events in their life I need a special notification.

    Now, is that a great idea or a grand idea?

    Uhm... nice province. I
    think I'll take it.

    As far as i understood we would have advisors, so I think a "diplomatic" or "foreign" advisor, could flag as you say other characters, informing you about what happens with his life

    Seems like a working idea. I'd use it. Sadly, it's probably too late to add now so we'll have to wait for it to be patched or sold as a DLC if Paradox decides that they like the idea.

    Which I think they should. =)

    So first you announce Crusader Kings 2, then a game with Crusader Kings elements set in feudal Japan. Why not just go the whole hog and give away a rock of Paradox brand crack with every pre order?

    Well there is still 4 months left to the release and it dosen't really sound like something hard to do, so they can probably add it if they decide to

    I support having such a feature as it would be nice to have a "Personage Event Index" for lack of a better term for now.

    Isn't such message filter already implemented in Sengoku? Or do you mean something different?

    As far as I know, the filter in Sengoku is only general (your family, your vassals, all rulers), but what the OP means is to flag one specific character and get notifications regarding him/her (like you want to know how Edgar the true king of England is doing after the Norman conquest, simply for fun).

    This would be a good idea. In DVIP I occasionally had the urge to look at how the Nubian royal family was doing in exile, but obviously this could be used for much more practical purposes.

    “When we received Ribbentrop, of course he toasted Stalin and me—on the whole he was my best friend. (Molotov’s eyes twinkled) Stalin unexpectedly suggested, ‘Let’s drink to the new Anti-Cominternist—Stalin!’ He said this mocking and winked at me. He had made a joke to see Ribbentrop’s reaction. Ribbentrop rushed to phone Berlin and reported ecstatically to Hitler. Hitler replied, ‘My genius minister of foreign affairs!’ Hitler never understood Marxists.”
    (Vyacheslav Molotov, quoted in Molotov Remembers, p. 12.)

    But you CAN select message filter character by character in Sengoku (right click on portrait, select lower right from opening icons)

    Ithink what you guys mean is Subscription or to "Subscribe" to a character. Where you'd only need to click a button on the character's page and you'd be given updates on every bit of news regarding a subscribed character OR, if that's too much, is to add a "Subcribed Characters" tab somewhere along where tabs fit and inside this would be a list of characters you've subscribed to so that you can just click on a character's name/pic skipping the search process.

    And now that I've mentioned search, a search tab for names/provinces/titles would be neat too.

    Great idea! Would love to see this in the game. Maybe something for the first DLC...

    Adding my voice to the others saying I like this idea. I know in CK1, especially as the game goes on, you can have a large list of individuals you want to keep track of for a whole host of reasons. That being said, even if the notification triggers on "something happened involving character X" that'd be enough for me.
