Visual indicator for capacity of transports

Post by goose88 » Thu Jan 14, 2016 4:28 pm

I would love it if units like transport ships, wagons, etc had some type of visual indicator for whether or not they are carrying anyone (just for that player). Even better, if it has 3 spots, an indicator as to how many spots are taken. This would make it a lot easier when ferrying people back and forth to tell right away which need to go forward and which to go backward, without having to double click on each unit every time to see. There are several times I've moved along the wrong transport because I thought it had the cargo and didn't double check.

Thanks!

Thanks, yeah I mean buildings and towers have the "lights on" indicator which helps and I think it would also be helpful for transport units. I remember back to StarCraft or Command & Conquer, they had little dots or solid bars above the transport units indicating how full they were.

Put on a bronze flag in the top corner only visible to the player
