Thread: Show Barrack Status on Overview Screen

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Show Barrack Status on Overview Screen

    Having played Age 1 for over a year, I would like to make 1 simple suggestion:

    Instead of listing city co-ords I would like to see the Barracks Queued Item production.

    Like so ...



    All I want to know is that all my barracks are busy or at least that none of my cities are NOT recruiting any troops.

    It saves having to step through each city and selecting at least one barracks in each city to know one of the most important things there is to know about each city ...

    (This would probably be just as useful in Age 2)

    Thanks

    I like it! I would make management easier when you have a lot of cities.

    I like it too, but the obvious flaw i see is what happens if not all barracks in a city are on the same time countdown, especially early in the game when you may have barracks of different levels cranking different troops. Right track though!

    it should show the lowest time of any single barracks of that city

    I rarely have this problem. i have a cumpulsive dissorder, all my barracks have to be reqruiting the same # or troops and the have to be finishing at exactly the same time.............now my first cities barracks might finish 1 min b4 my second and my second might finish 1 min b4 my 3rd but if my barracks are not all timed in this manner i go crazy................

    That would make sense also as a minimum change. I would like a better more complete view of barracks activity though if possible. I know it can be done! I like the ideas here though!

    Yes i like the suggestion but i agree with AllDayXL

    What if one barrack is qued for 100 hours yet all the others are empty.
