Last time I played, some days ago before the May/June update, I couldn’t select the villagers that were working on resources, unlike in Age of Empires 1: Definitive Edition. Is this a missing feature or is it just a bug? Honestly I got surprised since I expected AoE2:DE to work exactly like AoE1:DE.
How is it exactly supposed to work?
Let’s say we have 2 villagers working on wood, and 1 on gold. Clicking on either of those resources (on the upper HUD) would select one of them by clicks made. Do I make myself clear?
Alright, this doesn’t work also for me. Perhaps developers didn’t find it important enough to add. I am not certain how useful would cycling through specific resource gatherers one-by-one be, but of course developers might add it if enough players shows interest in it.
It seems it is one of the QoL I present in the Age of Salamanders scenario (if you test it, you access it by clicking on a woad raider a bit after the Southern Gate).
I never played AoE1 DE and did not know it was one of its features.
It’s faster to select villagers that way. Just like it’s easier to select idle ones with the respective button.
Sorry it’s a late reply!
The trailer for your mod was very funny to watch
Nice mod you made there! And, congratulations on what you’ve achieved! Villager management by resource is available in AoE1:DE, yes. And I was actually surprised it wasn’t included in AoE2:DE in the 1st place.
Yours are some interesting features, thanks for sharing!
After 3 months, I see that this feature wasn’t implemented yet. I do use the villager-per-resource feature a lot, and even got so accostumed to it, that I feel like I need it in all Age games.
Hopefully it gets added, as well as in AoE3:DE and AoE4!
Great to see you like it!
