Some usability suggestions

Postby Falesh » 11 September 2015, 15:18

It is important to be able to quickly check what skills everyone has. This is hard to do currently as you have to hover/click players and when it isn't your turn that keeps being interrupted by the opponents actions. I think the best solution would be to allow users to press a key which will toggle/momentarily bring up skills over players heads:

Another thing that slows play down is deciding in what order to do blocks/finding 2 dice blocks. To speed things up it would be good to show the number of block dice a player will get against all those around him when he is selected:

One last thing is that when it is your opponents go you often want to start planning your turn. This is hampered by the camera moving about as your opponent moves his players around. It would be good if the camera only moved when your opponent did something that was out of your view.

Yeah, though it's not a great claim to fame since I never finished the multiplayer bit. :P

Very much a +1 for this idea. Also it would clear up my issue of the dice appearing when you are trying to click, I was going to suggest the location they appear to be change but this is a much better idea. Could be toggled on and off for those that dont like it.. Honestly there is to much clutter and junk assigned with clicking or hovering.

These are really nice ideas for an optional overlay.

That's weird, I can see them. I put links underneath just in case anyone else was having issues.
