New Construction and Supply options
Posted by: Aggroblakh on steam_community_announcements October 11, 2018
I've now added the ability to assign construction orders without having to select units beforehand. If you don't have any units selected, you can now right-click and create construction orders as usual. Nearby units will then be assigned to the order.
Another much-requested feature was the ability to tell a Supply unit to resupply an area instead of having to manually resupply units. I've now added a "Supply Area" order when Supply units carrying supplies are selected, which will allow you to drag a box for the unit to focus on.
It seems to work quite well, to the point where I'm considering removing the original "Carry Supplies" order entirely. Try it out and let me know what you think!
Lastly, I've made some minor tweaks and fixes. First, I've added two slower timer speeds. The original speeds of 1-4 are now 3-6, and speeds 1 and 2 allow the game to run slower than before. I've also fixed a bug in which casualties inflicted/sustained weren't being recorded properly, and I've made it so that killing the enemy even between dated offensives now provides Valour points.
Thanks for playing!
