Allow people to do actions while some animations still going

Post by Fosprey »

I always fear to post in this forum because you get so attacked if the idea was already proposed.
I like to have animations, but i don´t like to wait for animations to finish before i issue any order.
My main complain is with the recruiting animation, i hate having to wait the recruiting animation before recruiting my next unit.
Also moving your other units, while your first unit is still attacking, could be cool. But i would be happy enough for the game to allow me to recruit while the animation is going on, OR AT LEAST open up the recruit window.

Preferences->Accelerated Speed. Move that up a little, solves the problem of waiting. But I think this is necessary, what about when the screen fades, you get a message, ect?
