Notifying the character that a harvester is full lets them immediately know that they need to empty it, and can continue harvesting the resource with as little downtime as possible, increasing the available supply of that resource on the server. Similarly, knowing that the resource has depleted lets the character immediately move on to another resource, allowing more units to be harvested from this next resource.
Harvesters currently send notifications if the maintenance runs out. There is no notification if the harvester is full or the resource depletes, both of which cause the harvester to stop running, wasting potentially valuable time and resources.
Expand the notifications from harvesters to include when the harvester's resource hopper is full and when the resource is depleted.
Currently, characters who use resource harvesters get notifications via mail when the maintenance runs out and the harvester is damaged. I believe it would be beneficially to expand the notifications from harvesters to include when the harvester's resource hopper is full and when the resource is depleted. This will let the character know that they need to empty or pick up the harvester, without having to travel to the harvester. This can increase the overall supply of resources on the server, as characters will know to move their harvesters onto the next resource immediately if the resource has depleted, or to empty the harvester and lessen the downtime of the harvester not running due to a full hopper.
