#6189 reopened enhancement

Experience trickle visualisation

Description (last modified by Langbart)

Experience trickle was added with changeset [23541] (21/Mar/20), since then units garrisoned in barracks get 1XP/sec. Most players are not aware of this feature. It would be a good addition if there would be an animation above the building when units gain experience points, it could look like in the GIF below, once all units are ranked the animation would stop.

This issue was also discussed on Phab:D3994 - Expand Experience trickle to stables and elephant stables (20/May/21).

The most interesting solution would be to divide the units by ranks. This would make it possible to ungarrison a fully ranked unit easily.

Decreasing the GIF size a bit, 800px was too large.

Palaiologos had the idea to add an additional vertical column to any building, that offers rigorous training. It would be placed next to the health bar, showing the collective amount of experience points, so that a user can now easily see if all his units have been fully ranked up.

For what it's worth, I like the icon animation better than yet another colored bar. :)
