I’ve seen a few topics like this, but I find my hearthlings to be HUGELY frustrating. They offer me no insight into what their priorities are, and my influence over their priorities seems to be very clumsy.
I would very much like to see exactly what my wandering little hearthlings think they are doing as a list of visible tasks, ranked in order of importents, and if any of those tasks are blocked due to lack of resources I’d like to see that.
I would also like to re-rank my heathlings priorities, similar to how I can do so with the hearthling job/craft menu, and give SPECIFIC hearthlings, SPECIFIC commands; similar to an RTS game, rather than being an observer.
Example: If I tell my hearthlings to build a wall… they should drop everything and do THAT until they are too hungry and tired to continue. If they cannot continue, then there had better be an explicit reason why.
Until this can be done… I would like an alternate means of simply ordering the death of individual hearthlings to take out my righteous anger at their insubordination; and further I would like, instead of a grave stone… their head to be raised on a pike as an example to their fellows.
