Multiple building construction

Post by javierkaiser » 08 Sep 2009, 07:22

Well, I found that maybe an improvement to make, would be able to construct building in an easier way.
An idea could be to make it work like building multiples oil derricks, in which case you press "control" and clicks on many oil sources.
For example, I want to make 100 bunkers, and I only have one truck. The only option would be select to make one, wait, an then repeat x99. One idea could be press "control" when you're positioning the build, and being able to make a queue, so the tuck finish one and then moves to another automatically. Or maybe it could work like walls, instead of just make a bunker, you select a range of bunkers to make.
Or maybe a "repeat last building" button.

Um, we already have that.

Just hold down Ctrl (or Shift) while telling the truck to build a ton of structures, and it'll queue up the build commands.

Well Supcom has the most advanced queuing system in any RTS game I've ever played...but that's mainly because due to the strategy and way the game works, such things are more necessary in it. Much in the same that most RTS games have waypoints, but it's only in Supcom that I found myself using them extensively (hell in some others I never find myself using the feature). Because of such, unironically, it has the most advanced waypoint system in any RTS game I've ever played.
