Option "auto-share" for team games


Recommended Posts

I suggest to add another option for team games: "auto-share"
It means that every team has team resources, players dont have their own resources anymore if they are in a team. If a player gets a resource, this will be added to the team resources. If a player spends a resource, it needs to taken from the team resources, as the player doesn't have his own resources anymore.
Example: 4v4 with low resources (300).
So each team starts with 1200 resources of each kind. Some players might be quicker and queue up a huge batch immediately so there will be less resources for the others than usual, but this is just how it works. Could be fun.

The fun would be that you dont need to send resources to teammates and you dont need to ask them for resources. Just spend and gather resources, and maybe leave some of the resources for your teammates ; )

First of all this would be problematic with diplomacy mode, so I suggest to first of all make the options incompatible (the game is either diplomacy or auto-share or none of them.)

It could be also realized by a mod in order to be realized more early, but mods are very problematic for multiplayer if they change the gameplay (which leads to incompability with the main game)

This was a feature in the old fgod mod. It was toggleable in the options.

Separate but related topic, it would be nice if replays were viewable from the MP lobby and if team total pop was viewable in observer mode. Both were features in fgod.
