Hi! I’ve been following this game for awhile now and am very much looking forward to see how it turns out, but I also know that this is the best time to give a little feedback here and there to maybe influence certain elements of the game, so here I am. After watching the recent video update on the additions to the job system, I couldn’t help noticing something that I think has been this way awhile now in some form or another, which is the somewhat messy citizen roster UI element.
This is probably really low priority for now, but I thought I’d suggest maybe organizing the citizens by their job on the citizen roster and making it so that when you hover over the job banner, it would be selected and a list of all the citizens assigned to that profession would appear. Like so, in this very rough mockup.
As the jobs are changed/upgraded, or if there are simply general job categories, all the citizens could be organized under these categories or, if changed/upgraded, reorganized as the case may be under the appropriate banner. I’m not sure if separate villages will eventually be founded in the game (i.e. ability to separate and organize your citizens as such), but if this were the case, then you could nest these various jobs under village banners which function similarly to how I describe these job banners’ functioning.
Like I said, probably not incredibly high priority stuff for the moment, but something I thought might be worth contributing to be considered. Thanks for making this neat game and being transparent in your development! =)
