Unit selection method and additional unit UI element

Post by CMDPete » 07 Jul 2019, 16:31

Hello,

Wonderful game, so happy to see the constant and active development.

I was wondering what people think of having a new in-game UI element (perhaps above the power bar) which appears when units are selected. This would list all the units stacked by type e.g. 12x Cyborg Flamer 1x Construction Truck.

Another option would be when selecting units (via click and drag) it would select only military units, without selecting the building units. This could be based on the first unit type selected. If that makes sense.

I believe both of these features are seen in current (last 10years+) games such as Supreme commander and red alert.

Of course I am willing to write a patch for this myself, providing someone is willing to point me in the right direction.

Kind Regards,
Pete (Commander)

Why not go all the way and port wz to SpringRTS? If you are interested in helping out, then say so. Actual work will start once enough interest piles up.
