While sometimes annoying, I quite like the trees hindering my sight. It functions as giving the enemies an advantage in dense forests, while providing you the advantage on open plains and inside your village. This gives a strategic advantage to shaping the terrain in such a way that the places you’re commenly fighting provide good visability, while things like forrests for wood require to be placed strategically not to be a disadvantage.
We found out recently that your idea is already in the game (but it’s probably a bug ).
Here’s how: you need to activate slice mode, and select the small or big mining tool. The trees that you hover with the mouse will become translucent as long as you’re hovering over them with the mining tool. Not very useful, but at least is not bad for performance.
We agree that they get in the way of combat and something should be done about that. Thanks for the suggestion
