View Full Version : The game could use a speed setting for combat!

I find the game mechanics surprisingly strong - but I'm wishing for a few things, none more so than a speed setting for combat.

I'd love to be able to slow the combat down just a bit, at least here in the start, so I can get a better overview.

Agreed. I'd also like fast forward for when I have to sneak all my mercs down a LOOONG flanking path.

I don't find a need to slow down in combat, as I just use plan and go every second or two, plus I have all the 'auto pauses' enabled. However, I do agree with Riftsaw, a time compression would be useful for when you have to take a long route around an enemy position.

I thought about this too after playing Shogun 2 Total War. The main issue I have is when I have multiple mercs lining up shots. I realise I can queue multiple shots on multiple targets, but a slightly slower combat time would help better realise when certain mercs have made their shots, or allow a better reaction to new/higher priority targets.
