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...

What if the player were to left click on the creature type and get a rally flag for it automatically?

I think this is a good idea, but it seems backwards. When we consider most UIs, right clicking is usually action or menu whereas left click usually does nothing more than select. So Rally Flag would be right-click, Zoom to Creature would be left-click.

I prefer the positioning Sebt mentioned for the creature tiles tho. It may be that this is one of those need to see it in action before forming an opinion. Also I agree with Sebt on the Items part. We don't need to be constantly reminded how many items as the list of Items is going to get bigger as the game develops, and that will just eat up screen space. On the other hand, it may be nice to have an option in the Items Menu like what we have to stop production called 'Track Item'. This would place the Item Icon on the screen with quantity displayed. This would be useful for tracking the necessities like Food and Beer to make sure your supply doesn't get too low.

I would like to see the Items window modified in order to better see what Items by type I have. For instance:

Raw Resources:
[Stone Icon] [Wood Icon] [...] [...] .................

Manufactured Items:
[Bread Icon] [Beer Icon] [...] [...] ...............

Halt All Production [Y/N Checkbox]

Weapons and Armor:
[Axe Icon] [Shield Icon] [...] [...] ..............

Halt All Production [Y/N Checkbox]
