[Feature Request] Progress Indicators

I had previously indicated to Drakkhis that I thought something with my herb field was bugged. It appeared one of the plots became frozen. What actually happened was that I managed to turn off the progress indicator on that plot only.

What I discovered was that once the herbs are planted I was not able to change the progress indicator on or off. It could only be changed when the plot was completely empty. Also that plot 0 seems to be activated not on the plot itself but by clicking on the outside of the herb field. Not really a problem, but thats why I was confused because I thought it shut them all off.

It would be great if we could change the indicator status on or off regardless of the status on the fields.

Pros: it acts as an added layer of security. Its more difficult for a visitor to plan a potential raid if they have no idea how long is left on the crafting process.

Cons: without being able to turn it on and off at will there is also no way for me to know exactly when the crafting may complete making my harvest also a lot of guess work.

I’d like to see this feature on all of the crafting stations and fields that have long crafting times.

I know I had mentioned not being able to access this menu on the vineyard previously.

I’d like to see it on the fermenter and the aging barrels, farm animals etc.

I love seeing the progress bars on the short term crafting stations and harvests its a very nice visual feedback.

On the long term “crafting items” it takes away from the visual aesthetics of the parcel if there are 10-20 large green progress bars scattered about.

I did not realize we needed this, but we absolutely do! I would like to see the ability to turn the progress indicator on and off at will on crafting stations also, though I can see limiting that to the owner of the station, or at least the group.

It would also be nice if it could include a countdown timer that shows the remaining time on the craft.

You’ll be able to link signs to your items. And can be placed anywhere on sim. So you could, if you wanted, have a control room on sim to see qhat all your items are up to.
