What does the yellow triangle exclamation icon mean on my base dashboard?

★ Newbie

The small dashboard on the upper right corner of the screen (the one with the "world" button on top) shows just under the "world" button my two bases.

From left to right it shows a box icon then a timer of when my next package will be ready.

 

One of my box icons on one of my bases has a yellow triangle exclamation icon over the box. The other base does not. What does this signify?

I am very sure about this.

 

The timers show time until:
(box) = Time until a building on a base has a package to be collected

(box with excalmation) = Time until a building on a base has full packages and can not get any more.

If you hover over either of these timers, it will show which base will be affected.

 

These icons will display in the base "status" bar below the timer area if there is a package waiting to be collect or if the maximum amount of packages has been reached and no more will be created for a building.  (The "battery" icon means resource-storage is full... this also stops package production)

 

The OP stated:
"One of my box icons on one of my bases has a yellow triangle exclamation icon over the box. The other base does not."

 

This means that one of his bases has a building that already has its maximum limit of packages waiting to be collected.

 

To collect packages inside base-view, all you need to do is click on them.

Does one of your bases benefit from a package storage bonus?

eafrancois' question is irrelevant.

The yellow triangle signifies that your packages are full for atleast one of the buildings.

 

Each building can hold 2 packages before it is full.

Go into the base's building-view and click on the yellow packages to collect them.

 

Your buildings can also hold more packages if you buy an upgrade by clicking the red [+] next to the yellow "package" in the left menu.

Are you sure about this? Even when all my packages have been collected, the box icon retains its yellow exclamation mark.

 

It may very well be that we are referring to two different things, though. Standard smile

 

This is what I'm referring to:
