Game running when offline

I have a dippy internet connection as rural and often get frustrated reorganising a city to discover my work wasted as it hasn't 'taken' as offline. I get a clue if collections dont show or productions wont set and obviously fights or negs hang but can still happily continue making city changes. Is there any clue i am missing that would alert me sooner im in darkness and a techie explanation as to how i can continue 'playing' and even clearing incidents (but no reward)

I've had all those issues without a ropey connection. The one where your collections should have finished and still show X amount of minutes/hours to collect till you close down the app fully can be very annoying and the 10/20 sec lag out on gbg can turn a quick sector into a chore.

Just set a 5 minute production and if it doesn't register in your supplies reconnect and refresh the game.

You can test active connection by doing something that forces a load like spend 1fp, open settlement/battleground/GE, aid a neighbour etc etc

Thanks wondered if a common feature others have found other than a bug. Hard to do some of the suggestions when rearranging city and nothing due to collect. Just wondered if some tell tale sign in the game would show you weren't live. A shield sometimes hangs if switching activities and internet is lost but not mid rearranging. Cultural settlements are those most requiring a reorg and every minute counts :)
