Brainstorm Creature Mechanic - Creature groups and rally flags
#1
Now when I have started to get a grasp on how it should work when grouping creature together I got a idea that should solve the issue with assigning only parts of the creatures to a rally flag instead of all of them at once.

I have gotten some complaints from people reviewing Dwelvers that it is tedious to have to enter the menu each time the player wants to see what and how many creatures he has in stock. The same goes for the items, but right now I only want to focus on the creatures.

So my idea is this, what if we had icons for each creature type owned by the player in a corner of the screen, these icons can be pretty small, I am thinking a forth of the icons shown in the creature menu. So even if the player have 15 different creature types it shouldn't take up that much room.

Each icon should have a number on it that shows how many creatures the player have, and by rightclicking the creature the camera should zoom in on one of the creatures location, when right clicking it again it should zoom in on the next creature location and so forth.

Now here is the interesting part. What if the player were to left click on the creature type and get a rally flag for it automatically? Then the player could send orcs in one direction and the impanzees in another.

On top of this the player should be able to have icons for the creature groups as well, these icons would work exactly the creature type icons just that the player will have the organized a little better for his own purposes. Maybe having a group with only melees he send to the front line while putting a rally flag for the ranged creatures a little bit behind.

So when a rally flag is put down, then a flag should appear on the creature icon, when the player left clicks it again the rally flag should disappear.

I am going to scetch something up later today on how this would look, I will just have to find room on the screen to put these icons Tongue
