i really like where this is going!
used to love the game and this version is getting my attention
two things about the current version:
the "build town" button shows because i have the right recources (i guess, see my second point) but i am not able to build one because of the rules (i've only got my two initial towns and roads so i need a road first)
-> shouldn't the "build town" button show only when i am really able to build one?
i used to play the real game a couple of years ago. got used to having my "resources-trading"-card (how many x do i need to build y) visible at all times so i could glance at it while trading. i see that you implemented a menu showing when pressing the menu button in the last version (good start by the way, wanted to suggest that too) - it would be great if you could implement another button in the menu that shows to display the "resources-trading"-card (for lack of a better name)
more feedback to come.
EDIT: see below
i need a statusboard with the following information to make decisions and refine strategy:
- player points
- how many resources a player has (not how many in each category but in total - i think according to rules this is possible)
- all the stuff displayed on my own info-screen (in-game-menubar -> "info")
a suggestion where to place this: remove "info" and "turn log" from the in-game-menubar.
instead display "status" (or whatever name) to the left of "options".
status is a full-screen display of player stats.
via tab it is possible to switch to the other players, per default my own information is displayed (like when pressing "info" in the in-game-menubar)
(very) rough mockup attached.
