View Full Version : Need safety on gold for expansion

For all other systems in the game, if you want to speed something up there is an option in the lower right to bring up the menu; this is not the case for expansion. When expanding if you click on any expansion sign or the expanding tile it will automatically bring up the Speed Up window. This opens up a big danger of accidentally clicking Finish Now, and combined with the fact that speeding up expansion is 10x more expensive then other forms of speed up it can be a very costly mistake. I recommend making the expansion system work more like the clearing of plants. When you click on a jungle tile it should center it on the expanding territory and give a little button in the lower right that will bring up the Speed Up menu.

It's possible to center on the plant because it exists within a specific amount of space, which is the area that's available for you. Forcing expansions to center on the screen when selected is different, because it may not be possible to center the screen to the exact location if the selected area is too close to the edge of the game space.

Noted, could do the current zoom pattern that it does when you are planning on picking an area to expand instead. Another idea is to put a 2 second count down before enabling the Finish Now button.
