Alpha release of Target System

Hello Realm of Empires fans!

We are releasing a very early, developer preview / alpha release version of a new Target System that we are working on.

It is very rough and ugly, but we are releasing it so early in our effort to solicit more feedback from you. We want to hear your comments and suggestions so that we know where to put our efforts next.

This is a short HOW TO use this system.

SUPPORT CALLING

When you want to ask your clan mates for support, click the new icon on village HUD, then click Ask For Support:


Enter what ever details you want - we recommend you keep this short and include the date and time you need the support by



When created, you and all your clan mates will see this icon on the map notifying them that someone is asking for support :

Your clan members can click your village, enter the target system and read your message and also comment on it. Every clan member is allowed one response in form of a question, comment, or log of support sent

Indicators on the map tell you how many questions, comments or logs of support sent are made

When calling for support to multiple villages...

... a handy feature is the ability to paste ALL of your calls-for-support, to chat, with just one-click:


CALL FOR ATTACK

In a very similar way, you can mark villages on the map as targets for attack


Assigned To / Act By time / Map HUD display

Significant changes were introduced in version 4.0, please see here for details

This sounds amazing, can't wait to try it!

Looks ok but attacks are imminent and the biggest problem has always been differing time zones not a reluctance to support.

Sounds good. Hope it works.

I am very happy to see this being add as cutting and pasting attacks are to confusing when there are many attacks. So I have always pushed toward a skype war room even after the in game chat was improved. The best way to pass on the attack landing times for me is to screen shot as a jpeg and post to a chat format that allows you to post pics. I hope this will remedy this problem.
As for the comment above from John O'Connell. Time zone have little to do with support if you all use the In-game clock. Just my 2 cents...

As always kill, kill and then kill some more
