I'm sure some of these have been said before, I tried to search, but if they were worded differently than mine, I missed them. If someone could let me know if any of these already have a topic, I'll go to them and add my support there.
Click Townies' Name in the Event List/Ticker to Jump to Them
I miss a lot of action and I can't stop action that I might not want (IE converting a solider to civilian quickly) because I simply can't find the townie I'm looking for. It'd be great if you could click on the townie's name when it pops up in the event list and it would jump the screen to that townie.
Alert Icons on Minimap
When a siege comes, or a fight breaks out, I'd like to be able to see where it is quickly. Sometimes the events are going by so fast, you can't even read them, let alone click anything, so if I knew the area it was happening in, I could quickly scroll over and take a look. Maybe just an exclamation mark or a circle/dot, something to get my attention.
Eat Non-Stored Food First
My townie will take a good minute to go and get a piece of food from across the map to store it, only to turn around and take it back out of the barrel to eat when they get hungry. I'd like it if they'd eat the food still laying around that hasn't been stored yet first, before they'd start dipping into the food stored up. It'd clean up the town and save their time.
Store Closest Things First
Townies will go down, haul, and store things from level 3 before they clean up level 2. Or they'll go across the map to pick up an item to store it when there's 10 of them laying around the town. I'd like to be able to switch that option, so they go for the closest stuff first to better clear out the town's general area. (I swear, I still have some bread laying around the first bakery that was from day 1...)
Change Ground Type (if you have the correct materials)
I have a ton of mud, I can't use it all. I'd like to be able to replace some patches of stone, so I could build farms on that area. If I dug out the stone, then replaced it with mud, that would create dirt in its place. I can create my farm and I got rid of some of my unused resources, win-win. Also would work the others ways, like I'd dig up dirt and replace it with stone to have stone.
A Better Way to Flatten the Ground
I don't care if I have to do it or if I could get my townies to do it, but I would looove a way to flatten a large area of earth at the same time, without clicking multiple times and trying to figure out the highest point of the hill.
Small Bug/Better Menus
Dunno if this has been mentioned before, but on non-full screen... herp derp, how do I delete the cabinet (if I wanted to)? XD
I had this happen to me when I was getting stuff sorted. I had to switch to full screen to get to the delete button.
EDIT1, adding more:
Mass Kill/Butcher Order
For large farms or maybe wanting to focus on one area of the enemies. Having to go through and click each animal for meat en mass gets tiresome.
Create-and-Store in One
Instead of townie A killing cow, dropping steak at nearest free square, and then townie B having to come along later and store it, townie A could just store it in the nearest available barrel/stockpile after they killed the cow. I don't know how well that would work for mining/chopping though. But I'd really like a better way to keep my town cleared.
