Hello!! In the last streams, Tom told us that they’re making the Hauling skill (this is just the behaviour to pick raw materials or crafted items and place them in the corresponding stockpile) avaiable for everyone;
Initially, only the workers would do this labor, but because the lack of workers once we start to have a carpenter, and a trapper, and other classes, there’s wasn’t enough workforce to build and gather materials fast enough. I think it’s a good decision to let all the clases to haul objects from here to there. But i think it’s even better to have an option to choose if i want that character (either it’s a worker or another class: carpenter, trapper, weaver, farmer…) to be able to haul things.
This can be a small button in the portrait interface when we select that worker; but i’m sure you’re thinking: “ey!, and what happens when i have 50+ people on my town!?? i can’t click on each one of them!.”, well, the solution for this would be to implement somekind of Tab/window, where you can access all the people in the town, and then you can sort them by class, by atributes (like, Int, or heatlh), by name, or by whaever; and in that tab, there would be a little button to toogle if that person can haul things or not.
I think this can be really useful, because with this option, we can focus the effort of our city in what we need: like: “i need the blacksmith to make weapons now, not to carry some wood” or “I need that my carpenter makes tables non-stop”, or “i want this worker to build all the time, so stop carrying heavy things”.
