Okay I realize this might be a weird request but… is there a way we could organize our units into different folders/subheadings/armies/whateveryouwanttocallit?
See, I love making units - I was obsessed with it in GSB and GTB seems to have the same effect on me… unfortunately that means I make large numbers of units and that can get err… unwieldy. In GSB it wasn’t as much of a problem - you had units split across several factions so even if you designed hundreds of units, they’d be split up a bit. GSB also didn’t require any action from you during the battle, so you could just take your time setting things up.
GTB requires a lot more work from the player though, and that means having a large list of possible units to deploy can be very unwieldy. So I was wondering if eventually it would be possible to split up groups of units under different headings so I either can’t access certain sets during a battle or at least can flip through various headings quickly to get to what I’m after.
Here’s an example in case the above isn’t quite clear:
Say I build 50 units - right now all 50 are going to appear on the bar at the bottom of the screen, which means I have to scroll the bar a lot and mentally remember the position/look of each unit. If I use the same visual scheme for my entire army (because I want it to look nice on the field), then it becomes a bit slow to find exactly what I’m wanting to deploy when I need to.
The suggestion would allow me to say… split it up into 4 different folders, each with a much more managable 12 units apiece. What you named the folders and why you split them up could be for all kinds of reasons - for some you might say… put breakthrough tanks in one folder, mechs in another, infantry in a third, etc… For me, being kind of weird, I’d probably split my folders up by who’s army I’m pretending to field (Ex: US, UK, German, etc…)
Regardless, it’s a feature I think would be nice to have. Not strictly necessary, but… well yeah, nice. < . .>
