    Auto-Search button for Geos and Explorers

    I have 60 explorers and 46 geos and maintaining takes most of the time i have to play, leaving less time for adventuring.
    So much time is spent sending and waiting on geos and explorers.
    To cut down time maintaining the island we need an auto-search setting that could be on or off on each geo and explorer.
    This would allow the specialists to repeat the last search upon returning, until the button is turned off.
    Another alternative would be to send them like gens to an adv. Select search type and select which ones to send.

    I agree with this. Or at least have the option to select "Multiple" geos/expl's to send out. Very similar to the way we send a batch of generals to an adventure. Even though the gens have different transfer times, we can select a batch to send. So with g/e's, we could select all available and send them all out on like quests with 1 click.

    That seems a little too much of an easy button, with the added complication that once you start a search, you can't stop it. I do agree that something is needed, though. Multi-search, like the general interface is a good idea. Or even repeat last. Anything to reduce the number of clicks.

    I can say for certain they would not add an auto search for explorers. Every event you would just set them to short and just rack up the event loot with no effort. Not going to happen. Maybe one day they might try the grouping suggestion, like with sending generals to an adv. Click a search length and choose from available explorers to send all at once, since at least then you still have to come back after each search

    I agree with these suggestions. However, it's been asked here for several years and still nothing happens.

    What we need is a Master Treasure Searcher. The character would be like a Quartermaster General in the respect that there would be 9 slots available for explorers to be assigned to. They would remain assigned until removed. They would disappear from Star Menu when assigned and reappear when unassigned.

    The Master Treasure Searcher would be "sent on a search" in the same manner as we now use. In reality he would simply mass launch his 9 explorers and they would search and return as they currently do. The Master Treasure Searcher would only be available for his next search when all individual explorers assigned to him return, so it would be up to the end user to make sure explorers of like type, skill sets and search times were assigned to him.

    He could be made available for Bean Stalks and Star Coins, making him voluntary to use and available to everyone who wants the feature. Or if BB really must, they can have say 4 freebies available and the rest available for a reasonable amount of gems. Reasonable, (like the cost of a Savage Scout), being the key word.

    A Master Treasure Searcher would be simpler to program than a Master Adventure Searcher where cost variables for the search(es) exist and besides, we aren't expected to do massive amounts of Adventure searches for events.

    We could give the Master Searchers names that correspond to their preferred search type using the current naming feature.
