We’ve had a bit of a debate in-house today about whether we show text to explain the current category of the settlement your are in on the compass.
For example above the compass it would say:
Location: <Beacon Icon> My Beacon in <Settlement Icon> the city of Therka Markets ====W=========================N=========================E====
On the one hand it clearly tells the player what type of settlement they are in but on the other hand it might look odd if someone wants put the settlement rank in their settlement name, the city of city. It might also be odd to have a settlement which is big enough to be a city but it actually serves a different purpose, like a mine or simply a pretty landmark.
Which leads us to the poll. What do you think should be shown on the compass?
- Prefix your settlement with its current category and icon (For example: (icon) The city of Therka Market)
- Only show the name of your settlement and the icon (For example: (icon) Therka Market)
