Feedback/Modification Room Mechanic - Rooms. Do we need them?

I want to give the player the power to success or fail because of his decisions. I want to give them the possibility of quickly halting every other production except weapons if they believe that's what it would take to fend off the invading enemy. Off course the dark mother will complain in the production messages that you aren't producing X or lack imps to fill all the jobs, but they'll deal with it later, once all the impanzees are vanquished and the dark mother isn't in danger anymore.
Learning by doing mistakes is the most efficient way of learning, at the same time I don't know if player could be able to control everything while fighting, building traps or doing other things, well it's all about if this would or won't be annoying, but...

...if you want to make surplus you could put to sleep buildings that engage Imps you would need to make surpluses of food and that way don't afraid of famine. Player this way will still have control and be able to adjust production for its needs itself. Wink

Hmm, could you elaborate this a bit?
