QoL suggestion: idle villagers selection

Alongside villager selection and military selection, I think a super useful add would be selecting only idle villagers.

A typical scenario is when there are several idle villagers under the TC, near all the farmers. I always waste time to find the idle ones to move them away from the TC.


Yes. Sometimes after a raid in team games, a number of miscellaneous villagers may be idle. It would be beneficial to select them all so that I can send them to wood or gold or whatever.

We already have “Select all idle villagers” in hotkey panel. which select all idle villagers on the map ( and not screen )
i think its empty for default and you should assign your own hotkey for that. its very useful key.

Yes, but in those scenarios one does not want to select all idles.

Double clicking villagers should only select villagers that have the same “job”, i.e. double clicking a lumberjack would select all lumberjacks on the screen, same for miners, farms, and idles.

I feel like this should probably be default behavior as I don’t think there’s actually a use-case for selecting all villagers on screen (regardless of job) with a double click, it’s likely accidental in 99% of circumstances unless you’re building a wonder or something.


I agree with that. The rectangle selection is still more convenient though, because if you try to double click in a crowd of villagers picking the idle one is hard as well.

hey, it happened (kinda)

Yeah its great! Much better than it used to be!

I am pretty sure you wasnt the first one with this suggestion (No, it wasnt me either) :wink:

Selecting forward builders regardless of whether they are currently building or not.
