How will civilians work?
 
Ok, I was wondering how the civilians/villagers would work in DoF. Would they be manually controlled similarly to AoK, or would they automatically perform tasks that certain buildings designate like in The Settlers III? I prefer the latter because it eliminates pointless clicking which you could be using to manage more important tasks (ie. killing those dumb orcs, preferably with heavy cavalry or boiling oil :p ).

Noob, I like to choose where my workers work'' it
makes the game so much more fun.I dont want to
see any of this unit grouping BS like in settlers 3 when your men came
in sets of 5 or was it 6? I wont even talk on it,They had
a good thing going with the way the town works with
teh little mills and bakerys tho. But overall I dont like auto assign '
I like control of everything with my colours on it.

Would be nice if idle workers were auto-assigned to the nearest duty/top priority task but then also having the option of commanding them at the same time.

Ummm just because people have a different playing style doesnt make them noob, if anything your the noob for not being able to accept the different playing style, and you know what he will b concentrating more on the battle so i think he would own you in a battle...

I think auto assign would be a lot of good but not too much, i remember the AoE games where you had to manually assign each civillian and they would end up standing still until you remember about them. I reckon that they should either have professions or look for the closest job that needs doing.

Yeah, there should be a balance between auto tasking and AoE 2.

It's not that I don't like having full control over my units, it's just that I like being able to achieve the same things as any other player, just with as few time-wasting clicks as possible.

For example:

Settlers III - think-click-think-click-think-click
AoK - click-click-click-think-click-click-click-think

im no longer aware of pointless clicking i do most of it half conscious while thinking about the amed forces and possible future economic problems

but thats what happens when you jumping back and for between city-builders and hardcore rts

I like what he sais' its all about balance baby, catering for
all the different styles players out there.I myself would prefer to assign
where my workers work as opposed to auto assign, As it requires
more effort .....its like baking a cake with out a recipe book
and it comes out fabulous...and your like .....I even got the decorative
love hearts perfect.....

THe more to do on the game the better I say, I dont want every players economy being the same because its all auto assigned.....blah...

That's not necessarily true either. Some players with a unique playing style have a method to their madness.
