Hi developers,

this is just a small and - to be honest - not really important feature that I am missing. It would be nice if the saved positions on the map (defined by CTRL + 1 ... 9) would be part of the savegame so that these will be there again after restoring it.

Best regards, Dillinger

Hi,
are you playing in Singleplayer or Multiplayer?
in Singleplayer games the landmarks are already saved and restored, just like open windows and other player-specific display settings.
In multiplayer games such information unfortunately cannot be saved since this information is not shared between the clients, so the machine creating the savegame doesn't know what viewport settings each participant is using.

Hi Nordfriese,

thank you for your quick reply. Understood, that's the reason! We are currently playing a multiplayer game on the latest daily build. No issues - this is not a blocker for us having a lot of fun playing Widelands. face-smile.png Looking forward to the new release.

Best regards, Dillinger
