Re: Thoughts on voice and control groups

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

: 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.

And as I mentioned in my other comment, include gestures - Kinect can recognize when you point, for instance and determine where the 'target' reticule should be. So you could call out a squad and say "Advance to.... (point to a spot) here" if it doesn't have a label. Or for quick selection of units during battle, you could multiselect by pointing with a certain gesture, or draw around a group you want if you haven't given them a label.

I imagine gestures with a quality kinect would highly improve fast-paced tactical strategy when combined with voice commands. And you can even still jump between the controller and gestures; feels to me like it would be a natural thing to do. You see it - you point to it.
