Notifications growing

Start of Notifications:

With a crudely drawn arrow showing the control lights up when you mouse over it. And if you click it, you advance down the notifications to the bottom:

There isn't anything to indicate when the top/bottom of the list is reached, but there will be.

As you can see, startship designations are brighter than the standard text.

I put in "Starfire Digital" just to keep it clear from playing on the table top.

The IDs are randomly picked between 0 and 99, if you get more than 70 ships on the board, then the ID range grows to 0 and 999, etc. I think I'm capping the game at 10,000 ships. Just... um... cuz reasons.

Good idea.

You can use color as well, such as weapon notifications in red or something.

I'm pretty sure the computer is a dead giveaway :)

IMHO, I'd make the randomized numbers optional. Some people (such as myself) prefer to have ships in an ordered sequence. It just makes it easier to remember which ship is what number.
