After telling an ANT to construct/destruct an object, a second menu needs to pop up and give a list of objects that the ANT can construct. With the current random selection that ANTs use to determine what gets constructed, it becomes insanely difficult to build a simple pipeline from one island to another when there are roads, bridges, etc that cross the path.

Discussion

  • the other units that can construct/destruct objects and buildings need their own menus as well. this is the same nobody as the original poster.

    Currently "construct/remove objects" command implements choice in much the same way as "refuel" / "extended refuel" is chosen: keep the button pressed.

    The first message in tutorial #19 ("Bulldozer School") covers this.
