Templates for 'finished' rooms
« on: September 25, 2013, 04:16:22 PM »
This is something I've been thinking of.

Let's say, when you build a room, for instance GP's office, there would be a template for a finished 5x5 room with the obligatory items and a plant, bin etc. neatly placed. You could create your own room templates and add them to the existing ones.

I'm bad at explaining, hope you got this :D

Not a bad idea, some people might enjoy it. I just think that TH is alot about micromanagement and the more you take that away, the more you would end up just moving around your hospital while the game is running at full speed, but there'd be nothing to do..

True, but the placement of items within a room usually don't matter that much. I hate feeling the need to organise every friggin' GP's office in a different way. :P

The new version will contain somewhat the thing you ask for.

You can turn on a setting, that keeps track of the items you buy for each room, and will then add the items to the "placement list".
This is done by calculating the average amount of each item for each room, so after building a few rooms of one kind, you should always get your wanted items in that list.
I think that it is how it will work at least.

But I don't know if we have a button to purge the list. That could maybe be useful.

Oh I like that! It's like a middle way.
