Just a quick, little, not-really-thought-out idea for Stonehearth!
Let’s say you select a Hearthling to cut down a tree. The current action they do now is cut down the tree, leave the resources where they lye, and then move on to the next task. And then after all the trees are cut, for example, then they will go back and collect what they cut down.
I was thinking though, a more typical RTS feature, would be to have Hearthlings, while cutting down that tree, or mining into that stone, automatically collect what they’re chopping / mining. So in the example of chopping a tree, they will automatically collect wood into their packs, until it’s full - go drop off everything at the stockpile - and then return to chopping down the rest of the tree, or move on the next tree.
I think this could cut down on the time it takes to collect resources for one, but also might cut down the amount of processing power needed… Umm… If some of you may recall, I’m not good with technology, so that last bit could be totally off! But heck if I know…
Anyway, does that make sense? If it doesn’t, I can rewrite that.
But yeah, if it does make sense though, let me know what you guys think!
