This might be a dumb question, but is there any way of receiving more obvious notification when a unit or buidling is completed (as in Civ 5 or Galciv 2 when the little messages drop down the right hand side of the screen). I often end up constructing/training stuff and then forgetting about it, especially when I have a large number of settlements and when automatic next turn is switched on. I then end up with units sitting around for several turns doing nothing (especially annoying with pioneers). It's only a small thing, but it really spoils my enjoyment of the game.
I know that I could keep opening the city view list to check, but this is a major hassle. I also find it very difficult to read this kind of infromation off the empire tree. Generally, I think that the empire tree is more suited to an RTS like SOSE (where there's a greater need to select units quickly) than it is in a turn based game like EWOM.
I'm keeping my faith with this game, though I must admit that I'm mostly playing Civ 5 at the moment.
