Re: Thoughts on voice and control groups

In Response To: Thoughts on voice and control groups (davidfuchs)

: To me, the simple ideas that pop up for me are general and objective cues. If
: you could set custom markers on the map, that would also make it easier to
: tell the game where you wanted to send units. Say you mark one enemy base
: as "A" (trying to think of a controller setup that would work
: for this but blanking without the game in front of me.) You set your own
: base as "B". You select some units, tell them to attack
: "B" ("Units attack Alpha"). If you need to reinforce,
: you tell the game to "Set Rally Point to "A" and boom,
: you've made the game far easier to coordinate attacks. The battle not
: going well? "All units at Alpha retreat to Bravo" and all the
: units in a radius of B fall back.

That's a great idea, but I was thinking more tasks and commands in terms of reassessment.
For instance, I think it would be great if you said "Base number 1(or Base Alpha, probably better off) build a Supply Pad."

Starts automatically if you have resources/space. If the base is full, a text message shows up notifying you, and you respond accordingly.

"Serina, sitrep!"

Bases conditions, location of leader units, mission objectives...

"All units defend/attack/rally."

Basically what you said.

"Pelican, pick up all friendly units in this radius, drop them off here."

That way you don't have to go back and forth between group and destination AND whatever else you may be doing.
