    This seems reasonable.

    Obviously, it cannot be done.

    how about endless iron mines, double the cost of endless copper, up-gradable, same for gold, coal, salt peter etc, as the item is more valuable, increase the cost in gems needed to purchase them

    Nice idea, but check out the AMA postings; BB recently responded that no such items was under consideration.

    Making roads easier to use

    Roads are a convenient way to map out space. I would like to propose two changes that can make them a bit easier to use.
    1. Allow one to build a continuous section of road in one series of clicks. First mouse click starts your road. Each subsequent click adds a new straight length of road. Terminate with a double click, or by clicking on the finish button. (This would also make building roads a bit more like destroying roads.)
    2. Allow a building to remove any road required to fit into a desired space. (Currently roads prevent placement over the road.) Ideally this would be added as a option, chosen just like options for displaying animals or whatever. That way people who like to use roads to actively constrain building placement can do so, and others of us who just want a visual guide, such as a tight grid of single cell space spaces, can do so easily.

    Cheers -- Wruined

    Getting information about the contents of a camp

    This is a useful suggestion, I think, to help people who are not able to move a mouse quickly and accurately. Some players need features which give them a bit of time to make an accurate mouse command.

    To get information about the contents of a camp in an adventure or an expedition, you can move the mouse over the camp or click on it to pop up a summary of who is inside.

    Then, to get detailed information, you can move the mouse over one of the inhabitants in the summary. The problem is, that in moving the mouse you lose the summary. The problem is worst for me when in an expedition, looking at a boss camp. Moving the mouse up the summary located furthest from the camp itself takes the mouse through a zone which removed the summary before you can get the detail.

    Proposed solutions (one or the other)
    (1) when you click on a camp, keep the summaries in place for a while, even if the mouse moves away from the camp. Second click would remove the summary.
    (2) have a zone around the camp in which the mouse can move freely without causing the summaries to disappear.

    Event Calendar

    How about an event calendar. I know, and understand, that these times and dates have to often flex a bit, butit would be grand if players had something to show us at least what is planned, in a general sort of schedule.

    Something that shows which events are planned, when they'll start and end (not binding, but proposed schedule anyway) would be a good way to improve player participation.

    We have some staples that we expect to see every year: Halloween, Christmas and Easter. Then there are other things, like Soccer World Cup that players really don't know whether to expect or not. A Calendar would really help.

    Certain things like Crisis, by their very definition, are surprises so keeping them off the calendar would probably be a good idea.

    Before the introduction of colonies, there was no pop up and all camps were clickable. I miss those days. Removing that feature was a pretty big mistake on Blue Byte's part, in my opinion. There are still units that it is impossible to hover over and see their stats.
    One army. Pretty please.

    I know you said we don't need a harbor because of the way generals travel. Well, make the harbor a storage building. Preferably near the original landing area. Then I can delete the storage house I have there and replace it with a resident. You could do it in the epic item's for beanstalks and make the upgrades epic like the castle. It could be the largest storage building. Newbies don't have the event building and I don't use the castle anymore. If you don't like the storage idea you could make it an epic residence or something else epic. We need more epic items including Ali Baba adv's.

    How about a buff building in an event. It can buff any building except storage and non producing buildings. Each level gets a certain % that adds up to 100% or more. You click on the building, a list of all buff able buildings come up, click the building to buff for say 12 hrs . So I would pick barracks or bookbinder. It would be a zone buff and work with other buffs like the soccer field that I don't use much. It could have a cool down period also.

    How about an improvement of monitoring if a player is active in a guild. Instead of just saying active yes/no can you tell how how long since they have been active. It would really help guilds to weed out those that are not playing.
