Could we add a toggle to auto-queue villagers when a town center goes idle?
Before you suspect that I’m trolling, hear me out.
Auto-reseeding of farms/fish-traps has been well received and appreciated by the community. Wood remains available until it is needed, and fewer farms go idle. Experts can still choose to not opt-in, which allows them to micro their economy.
Auto-scouting, while initially controversial, has been helpful to beginners. Even experts, like Viper, enable auto-scouting situationally.
Permitting beginners to enable auto production of villagers will help them focus on aggression, planning, strategy, scouting, and perhaps focusing on preventing that villager from getting killed the boar (yet again). This also keeps their food available for impromptu military production, should a sudden raid appear. In the dark age, experts will still micro their six villagers to drop off food sooner, but beginners eventually get the next villager queued automatically when the sheep is exhausted – without having to fixate on it.
I believe this would make the game more fun as people could watch and participate more in the battles without falling behind in villager production.
I welcome your pitchforks and old-man comments (“back in my day, we learned to group our town centers and use hot keys to keep up production, and that’s the way we liked it!”)
