This game is great!
« on: November 03, 2009, 08:53:50 AM »
I'm an avid strategy fan, and have been since DUNE II. I've played all the C&Cs, all the Total Wars, Supreme Commander, Homeworld 1&2, the WH40K: DOW 1 & 2 etc etc.
So I recently purchased Eufloria from steam, and I am seriously both impressed by and addicted to this game. The smooth and easy controls, the little tactical and strategic manoeuvres that come to show as you play, the procedural generation of levels, the concept and implementation; this game is quite fantastic as it is.

I would love to see a few features implemented though. The first I would really like to see would be the ability to change the paths of LaserMines and flowers more freely: it's the occasional frustration of clicking on the wrong destination and watching your super-weapon drift very slowly past the sudden enemy invasion. Even worse, sending it to an asteroid you can't get it back from >.< As it moves so very slowly, such trivial mistakes can take absolutely ages to undo, a situation that really doesn't need to be so.

The second would be a method to select all the seeds/asteroids that are visible and be able to move them all at once: whilst I really have no problem with clicking, it does get a little tedious if you have a lot of asteroids and you want to keep the seed births up. Otherwise, a rally point would be great :)

Rally points might be a good add, but I actually really like the no turning back limitation.  It seems to be a major element in the way the A.I. responds and can be used to dispatch a counter or set up a bluff.  I feel that if you could redirect mid-flight there would be too much massing and micro, and not enough Chess.
