SUGGESTIONS: Employee Management

Post by IndyHoops » Thu Jan 16, 2014 4:33 pm

A couple of suggestions that would make managing employees training and assignments less of a hassle:

1. Keep controllers assigned to a mission for its duration, but allow changes before each season of a mission starts. That way I don't have to remember who I want assigned in the upcoming season, and thus can't send to advanced training.
2. When an employee is selected, highlight them on the list of all employees. Sometimes I forget who I'm about to send to training and their name is obscured by a dialog box.

This is off topic, but I love the USSR vs. USA campaign option and multiplayer options and can't want to see them! Also, love that you are going to allow variable rocket configurations. Those things were favorite features of BARIS and I am extremely happy you are adding them, so many thanks.

Minor vs. major failures and the possibility to recover from minor failures and is good stuff, too. I did read that's coming, didn't I? :D

Hello IndyHoops,

Welcome to the forums! :)

We'll add your suggestions to the backlog. Number 1 is certainly a priority, I'll see if I can fit it in a patch in the near future.

Glad you liked the newly announced campaigns! Our 3D artist is hard at work creating the models for the Soviet spacecrafts and hopefully I'll start writing the code for the new campaigns and the multiplayer mode soon.

The failure system will also be included soon. Some contributors have been giving us a hand by writing a list of potential failures, but we need to write code for them and integrate them into the game. So many things to do, so few hours in the day :)

I would welcome a simple button for "Show only available employees".

Once your departments get larger than a few people, it's a hassle to go back when training ends and have to pick out the handful or so on each page to reassign.

Hello guys,

@Wadeshervin: Notice that the suggestions posted in the original message are already part of the game.

@Vivisector: Very cool idea, we'll add it to the backlog.
