    Alright, so back in the pre-2.2 days, there was a bug that would make the engy calc (or gun, but that was stupid) fire continuously without having to hold mouse1. The port to OB wrecked this, and there was debate about bringing this back as a feature. I think pretty much everyone was in agreement that this should be brought back, but I guess it fell by the wayside and has been forgotten about.

    Now I really don't think this should be high priority for the devs or anything, but if they feel like it, this would make the job of a base-building engy slightly less tedious (I always turned on autobuild and grabbed some food or took a leak).

    I also remember someone (dizzyone?) had some scripts that would do this that I cannot find. Could someone point those out to me if possible?

    you could do it with anything back in the day, I would just hold down run and open the menu to keep it locked and basically have auto run on. Auto build was nice too.

    What about making it one click to start build and one click to end the build. Instead of holding it down. It would seem cool to just click once to start build and once to stop building..

    off topic: I would also like to see this in vehicle customization. Click the armor you want and it appears on the tank instead of clicking and dragging.

    you would have to disable it when you start using regular weapons unless you can get used to toggle firing.

    i'd like to see implementation of something like the Medic's autoheal in TF2, except not awkward. You're not moving as much in Empires, so an option for autobuild would be reasonable.

    squads mean nothing if you don't work as a squad.

    squad mechanics and influence needs to be reworked entirely

    i suggest making some form of increased utility and power for all squadmembers

    like the buff auras, but becoming more strong as the game progresses

    I see a lot of people in squads.

    And yes please, bring this back...it will save our mouse1's. Also autorun is damn overdue - cross country running with no autorun?!

    bump.

    I know Scardy's seen this, but I want more dev attention so this doesn't get forgotten about again.

    or if you prefer a single key, a toggle:
    Code:
    alias atk "atk2; echo atkON"
    alias atk1 "-attack;alias atk atk2; echo atkOFF"
    alias atk2 "+attack;alias atk atk1; echo atkON"
    bind "\" "atk"
