I'm currently try to unify the win conditions. E.g. have the status message every 30 minutes, check_for defeated players every 5 seconds, etc. Currently in Territorial (Time & Lord) and Collectors, the status messages are set as popup messages while in Wood Gnome and Artifacts they are not.

I think it should be the same for all winning conditions. I myself find it very annoying have the window popup every 30 minutes and every 5 Minutes during the last 30 Minutes. Therefore I'd like to change this and make them not pop up.

What do you guys think?

One additional question. Currently the remaining time is reported in hours and minutes in Collectors mode and in minutes only in Territorial and Wood Gnome. Which one should be used?

+1 removing the popup every 5 Minutes during the last 30 minutes. Maybe every 10 minutes would be good? So we have 2 popups instead of 5 before the final message: 20 minutes and 10 minutes.

For the remaining time i would prefer hours and minutes, where the last hour is shown as 60 minutes.

My current implementation (at the moment only for Collectors & Wood Gnome).

Time Status Popup Remaining
30 min yes no 3 hours 30 minutes
60 min yes yes 3 hours
90 min yes no 2 hours 30 minutes
120 min yes yes 2 hours
150 min yes no 1 hour 30 minutes
180 min yes yes 60 minutes
210 min yes yes 30 minutes
215 min yes no 25 minutes
220 min yes yes 20 minutes
225 min yes no 15 minutes
230 min yes yes 10 minutes
235 min yes no 5 minutes
240 min no* no -

[*] This will be the "You won/lost" - message.
