Text Error in Game Log

This thread is open.

I placed an Iron Works in my current game that immediately sold its iron to the demand track. This is the message that popped up in the Game Log:

"The newly constructed Iron Works sells 4 coal cubes to the Demand Track for ?6."

It's minor and doesn't affect gameplay, but I thought you should know.

It means a total of ?6 (?2+?2+?1+?1), not ?6 for each individual cube. Is that what you were enquiring about?

no, the log says the IRON sells 4 COAL cubes. Makes no sense =)

Yes, thanks for clarifying Helio. I thought it would be obvious, but I should've been more explicit in my report.

Oh I see. I didn't notice that at first. That will be simple to fix, I'll do it now. (It won't be fixed in the games where it has already happened, but it won't happen any more.)

On a related note, you might want to indicate in the text when an iron works / coal mine / cotton mill flips and starts producing income. This is implied by the message and the piece on the board but since you are doing such a great job with the text descriptions, you might consider adding this verbiage.
