Please implement a setting to speed up movement on the world map. It's really slow right now.

Also please add a button to cycle to units with unspent movement, like an 'n' or something. I beg you. This is badly needed. The UI gets so borked on certain scales. My units hide behind the minimap and I can't use certain regiments unless I hunt them down on the map manually and not through UI.

This is a very promising game, and even the free version is great. I'll definitely buy the full thing once the 1.0 version comes out. At least if some UI improvements are made.

I'm currently reworking UI. I'll add movement speed option to my feature list (others have asked for it too). And the 'N' for next unit and 'M' can be added. Um, I didn't originally implement those sorts of keyboard shortcuts because the game wasn't really meant for big campaigns, but I'll do what I can to support it.

Thanks for the feedback :D

No problem. I am a strategy game afficionado and when you get comfortable with a game to replay it over and over then speed of executing actions is pretty important so that you don't waste time and get to the actual gameplay. The unit problem comes from the fact that I recruit a hero every single week even if I don't need them and use unit chains to pick up resources to not waste movement points. Honestly this game feels like a blend of Homm 3, 4, and 5.

One question: How do you put units in the conscription center? I can take them out, but not put them back in.

um, I'll have to check if it's bugged, but if it isn't, a slot to drop them into should appear when you're dragging an unit from your army. There actually are several UI elements that work the same - I should probably update all of them to show the empty slot even when you're not dragging a unit

EDIT: The N and M keys will be added in tomorrow's update. Also joined by B which cycles backwards compared to N

There's no slot to drop them into except the usual to create a new regiment when a hero is next to the town. While no hero is in town I can only see garrison and army. When I switch there's nothing. Only when I get conscripts can I right click them to remove them.

EDIT: Correction, it only borks and doesn't work when the UI scale is too high. Except I need to get the scale below 100% to even see the option to. I normally play on 141% because that's what auto-scale does and it looks the best. Honestly I think the UI doesn't properly scale. If the UI scaling was reworked to work on a standard laptop wide-screen resolution then it would be much better. As it is I had to also reduce the scale so that I could read the message that says I can change the town for 5k gold and 10 wood and ore. If I didn't scale down the UI I would never be able to read this and I had to squint to read the small letters anyway.

um, can you send me a screenshot? Are you somehow playing in 141% scale and without the mini-town screen?

The misc tab doesn't give me access to the army when in 141%, but it does in 100%, because there's no third tab, it all gets merged in one town screen.

oh. Oh! That makes so much sense that it doesn't work. I'll fix. Thanks for reporting this
