New Messages update 1.4.2

Question

Hey, so since update 1.4.2, I'm now getting a ton of useless messages regarding my contracts.  Like if I'm supposed to test a certain part at speed and altitude, I'm getting messages telling me I'm at the required speed or altitude even if I don't have the part on the craft.  When you have like a dozen contracts going at the same time, it gets really irritating, because I'm getting messages constantly and none of them relate to what I'm actually doing.  This is something that cropped up as soon as I installed 1.4.2.  

Is there a way to turn this off?  

I'm running a stock install with no mods.  The only weird thing I can think of is I started this career in 1.4.0 and carried it through until 1.4.2.

 

Thanks in advance

But then the QA would be down to the modder, not Squad/T2 :wink:

 

Very true :P

Hello.
Since developers like specifics when fixing bugs (at least I do), I will try to be more specific as to the nature of the bug:
The bug only occurs in contracts that have multiple conditions required to fulfill the contract that are NOT independent.
For example, a Tourism contract or a Take <science measurement X> at <place Y> <altitude Z> will NOT spam you but a "test part X" contract will.
Thanks.

It's more that those contracts are too specific to cause the conditions to trigger.  Tourism contracts require that John Doe Kerman is in orbit of Eeloo or whatever, so they won't trigger unless that exact condition is met.  Likewise, I suspect that if you just happen to pass over <place Y> at <altitude Z>, or put a craft into the specific orbit of a sat contract, you will get the message spam.  It's just most noticeable when you've got contracts with very wide criteria, like the "Maintain stability for 10 seconds," or "Achieve orbit with a craft that has an antenna, a docking port and can generate power."

Honestly, the spam would just go away if Squad reverted the alerts back to the older "only if all conditions are met" completion. This feels like either a debug feature that got left active in production, or a "feature" that didn't get tested at all.
