Finished new features

Goto command

Huh... it was a huge job! :)

You can command the movement of your units by touching the tile in the desired direction. You will use the Goto command to order a unit to move to a destination tile.

To do so, select the unit, touch the new (Goto) icon and touch the target tile. The game engine calculates the shortest path to the target tile and the unit will go there automatically if it is possible.

Planned features

Government

There are several forms of government with which you can rule your civilization, but none offers complete control. The standard forms of government are: Despotism, Monarchy, Communism, Republic and Democracy.

Under autocratic regimes (Despotism, Monarchy and Communism) your citizens readily support the military, as military units stationed in a city can prevent unhappiness by enforcing order, but reduce your trade income through corruption. When granted representative government (Republic and Democracy) they are efficient and productive, but demonstrate against the use of military force by becoming unhappy, the only effect is negative — citizens become unhappy when their city is supporting military units which have been deployed into an aggressive stance.


Player profile

We will create a rudimentary profile of the players, so that you can upload an avatar and specify a tagline as a description. Later this profile will remain permanent, with achievements and private messages.


Automated Workers and Engineers unit

You can command various works (building roads or railroads, irrigating, etc.) of your Workers or Engineers units. You will use the Auto command to order a unit to make the specified commands on the tiles in the home city's environment.

Select the Workers or Engineers unit, touch the icon of the specified work and touch the new (Auto) icon. This tells the game engine to automate the selected Workers or Engineers unit. Thereafter it will do the selected works (building roads or railroads, irrigating, etc.) for the purpose of improving the area around the unit's city.


Sell buildings

You will be sell buildings as the units.


Performance improvements

We will make some performance improvements based on the value of response times.
