Description

The widget reminds you about expensive or situational units whose production has been completed. The notification method utilises the labeling system.

The script reports units based on metal cost. By default the minimum values for exclusively AA units is 500 and for others it is 850. Also factories are reported by default. The following special cases are also notified about:
"Valkyrie"
"Roach"
"Tick"
"Infiltrator"
"Eraser"
"Sharpshooter"
"Vindicator"
"Djinn"
"Vulture"
"Skuttle"
"Eos"
"Quake"
"Shockley"
"Inferno"
"Merl"
"Stiletto"

More options are available at the beginning of the script file.



Known issues

- the anti-spam functionality may very rarely fail
