I have a number of ideas I want to suggest that could improve Warlight, but before I get into that, I wanted to ask the forum if there's any particular system already in place for making suggestions on gameplay improvements/changes.

Is there a particular thread where that sort of thing should go that I should post to? Or is it pretty much free for all? And one more thing: does Fizzer spend much time making changes to the game? If there's a thread with a huge backlog of suggested game changes/improvements then I'd hesitate to add even more to the pile. I know that in just the last two or three years he's added commanders and changed the whole single player experience, adding a bunch of new maps to go through, but beyond that I don't really know if he's changed much.

Here you go. That's the official channel for suggesting ideas. Currently fizzer is busy changing warlight from flash to unity though.

He's working on alot of stuff, and has an idea in his head of the direction of the game. He only uses uservoice to see if a shockingly large ammount of people want something.

Hmm. The idea I put on there would, I think, be simple to implement and immediately be useful to many people. The entire "Local Deployment" option would be much more viable. Any good way to get it seen? I see there are 43 pages of suggestions.

You can post it here. If community gets interested in it, then there is more chance that game creator also would like it.

Alright, I'll just do that then.

Basically, the idea is that you can set up automated routes for your troops to follow. Right click and drag from any of your territories to another of your territories. From then on, all units placed in that territory will automatically have their orders set to move to the second territory. Right click the territory once to remove the automated route. Left click still works like normally. This way you can set up gather points for your troops to then manage them more closely. Especially useful with Local Deployment since you won't have to set up a bunch of move orders for individual groups of armies--just have them all automatically move to the front.

Further, you can right click and drag across multiple territories to rapidly set up automated routes, or modify your current routes.

And if for some reason right click can't be used for those functions, perhaps a keyboard key could be used, or possibly a new button added to the interface if necessary.


If possible, it would be nice to combined the routes with a new deployment system as well. The player could be given an option to either let them manually place their armies, or have them automatically deployed into the territory or bonus they're created by. Armies deployed in bonuses would probably be randomly sprinkled across them, but there would be no more than a a difference of 1 allowed between the highest and lowest deployment--so you could have a bonus with armies deployed like 1 1 1 0 1 0 1, but not 1 1 0 2 3 0 5 1.

I think this idea would be very useful and save oodles of time, making Local Deployment a much more viable feature, particularly in multiplayer.

You can find the Uservoice entry here: https://warlight.uservoice.com/forums/77051-warlight-features/suggestions/31886488-deployment-routes

Please vote it up if you like it.

I'm pretty sure that the routes idea exists already on uservoice. I think fizzer is aware of that idea

master of desaster: Do you know which idea on Uservoice is the one for routes? I searched for "routes" couldn't find it.

Bane: I didn't even know Warlight has mods. How does that work?

Thank you for the link.

I think using right click to set up routes makes more sense. "Beacons for local deployment games" said you would create a list of territories, and then the troops from them go to the beacon. I feel like right click and drag for the routes would be easier and probably more modifiable.

And I forgot to mention: the game would also give you a visual indication of where your routes are, probably with a golden arrow or something pointing from one of your territories to the next in line and the next in line, etc.

Mods are for the in-development unity version of the game and is only playable by members in its current alpha version.
