« on: March 05, 2014, 05:46:01 pm »
I suggest to make a memorial to killed soldiers
And statistics for them:
how many missions soldiers has. how much he killed aliens. and his parameters (str, con, and etc)

I thik it good idea - u can see how many soldiers u lost
And if your favourite soldier die, u can see him in memorial

This feature would mean that we need to keep every soldier's records for the whole game.. We already got reports about slow game load times related to the employee record counts in some special cases. And while I believe I sped that up quite much recently, I don't think it would worth loading lots of data just for this feature - which have no gameplay value at all.

Why load data like this until it's needed (or idling)?
Then again, why keep in memory any data that isn't going to be used any time soon or in some time-critical way?

I fully agree
I do not know how the system save the data, but I can say - it is not necessary to load all at once
Download memorial while viewing it

No value to the gameplay?
Gameplay - The game atmosphere
Fighters in this game - one of the main components
If I cherish their fighters throughout the game and lose some of them in their fight - I will be pleased to see the statistics of lost soldiers

As you have probably noticed, we are short on devs these days, so any non "core" features — even if they were accepted — aren't likely to be implemented any time soon (barring a dev's whim I guess — this is open source after all, devs might work on any features they might like).

But — as always — patches are welcome :)

I would also highlight what I said before:
- The feature has no gain
- Could slow down the savegame loading for ppl

So, we're not going to do it...

We will not redesign the save system for just this little useless feature.

- The feature has no gain
I have a different opinion
It is game. In game u have some thing to play
Its ufoai - u have ur squad. U appreciate ur squad
When u lose one of squad - u have pity
when approaching the end of the game you will want to look at squad loss
it only my opinion

I'm not suggesting edit download function ONLY because of this function memorial
I just asked a question - as I think you can improve system of loading save game
And why useless ? i dont think so
Its game. In game u wanna have fun. This function can provide to have immersion in process of game
