mostly QoL features… but while re-entering AoE2 with my family and friends, we have collaborated on some much needed additions to the game: (If anyone can make mods that would offer these changes or know of mods that do, please post them!)
Idle Farm Glow
*Did you get raided and lose half of your farming eco? Or use your farmers to build something? Or accidentally took villagers off their farms? Farms without villagers should have an indicator telling you they are unmanned so it’s easier to reclaim your farmlands - right now it’s a guessing game amidst the chaos of the ongoing game to see whether or not you’re missing garrisoning a farm or two among tens of them.
Upgrades Overlay In-Game
*Players should be able to easily see which techs they have and have not researched in their games WHILE PLAYING. As in CaptureAge:
*One for Idle TC: [Suggestion] Add UI icon for Idle TC
*One for Idle Military
*It’s very antiquated. Needs a time bar (to rewind and fast forward) at the least and better fog of war options, better gui, better keybinds at the best.
