[PATCH] Select idle in selection

Reported by: WhapWhap Owned by:
Priority: Should Have Milestone:
Component: UI & Simulation Keywords: patch
Cc: Patch:


Use case:

Return army from a fight to farms. Half of them have no farm to work on and are idle. How to select these idle units?


Add a button in the middle bottom menu when the selection is partially idle.

How to use.

Assign two workers to gather. Select all workers . Click new 'zZz' button to select only the idle workers in the selection

Patch is based on git e463203848707aa0d8ffb72e95ce858878fef9dc

Hopefully this is useful somehow.


Hi ! Keep up the good work! Love the game.

Isn't that already implemented, hotkey I?

You can use I + Left Drag to select only idle units. So this is not really needed. (The patch also doesn't work properly: it doesn't consider idle-state changes while you have a group selected)
