Idle military units/other questions/feedback
So, my first town is a orc city, trying them out.
I have tons of idle military units on my map, I mostly just place them at the healing lake thingy. But what canI do with them? I mean.. I have a lot of them, they're taking up quite some space and having them on my map raises my population so high spawning new laborers/marauders takes AGES.
What should I do with these? Can I just put them in a army outside of the city which reduces the population which makes spawning new orcs faster in my town? I thought it would be kinda handy with a building, like a barrack or something where you can put idle units so they dont take up population space (or land space), and pop them out when you need them. Being a noobie that is just the first impressions.
Having such slow spawn also makes my resources stack up because.. well.. I cant spend it on units because they spawn so damn slow.
And please, for the love of gaming make the AI's pathfinding, AI in general and controlling battles much more fluid and less dumb. The AI feels so stupid, running past enemies when having them on attack-move that is just by them (sometimes it feels like they dont defend themselves when they're being attacked either). Giving orders is so clunky and not fluid at all. You have to really make sure you're moving a unit. If you are too fast nothing happens. You have to carefully select, slowly press *move* to a location, make sure the flag is placed and then you're done. Managing armies/battles MUST be fluid in a game like this and not feel like driving a truck on a mountain bike trail. This should be top 1 priority imo. Graphics and other stuff is less important, the gameplay/combat must feel fluid and reactive!! It almost feels like a beta product, and the game has been released for 1 year? This HAS to get fixed.
