I'd actually dont need reports for every disaster (and I also don't understand it, mostly - structure, logic...) - maybe optional or not needed at all (or we have notifications area in Civ6 - can it be shorten and placed there..?
Sound is a bit more devastating then the disaster :)
I also tried it with maxed settings... well, I haven't felt the apocalypsis. It was somewhat like "Huh, smth happened somewhere, my lands are in ruins :D ... oh, epicenter... nice.
BUT: it sometimes crashed the whole game totally (just quiting to desktop, no messages or something. On my turn, at volcano and earthquake...)
Any chance of animation like Civ6 default disasters ? ;)
