    I have another suggestion : in the skills list of heros and units, there are many of them which don’t depend on the heros or units themselves.

    Some skills are given by the ground, others are given by the leading hero…

    It would be a very simple feature but very cool one to highlightening skills with colors or small icons to show why the unit have these skills

    Example of background colors which could be used for skills :
    – Dark blue for standard unit skills
    – Marroon for ground skills
    – yellow for leading hero skills

    It will be so easier to understand and optimize skills of units !

    Thanks for listening 🙂

    I agree, I colorcode everything on the Database and it’s much easier to read

    Seperate colours for racial and unique class/race combos would really help out new players as well

    And it shouldn’t be a huge effort !

    Hooray for great benefits from small development effort +1

    Tibbles, your screen illustrates the point. Thank you , and you point another utility of this system.

    Could we suggest that point in the “gameplay suggestions” section ?

    It would be so cool to see what the leading hero brings to an army with a quick view, without effort !

    If this can be done without undue effort, I support the feature. It would combine nicely with the planned abilities UI improvement.

    Coloring background would uglify the UI of units. Instead I propose coloring FONTS in UI skill list. Its already done for temporary skills (blue), so It shouldn’t be problem to develop this further. Also, this would be extra useful for skills gained from MCU or inherent from evolve.

    Hey, now there’s a very good idea. I support this.

    The main idea was to highlight skills according to the origin (leading hero, upgrade of the leader class, ground of the map…)

    If this can be done better with fonts instead of background colors, let’s do this now 🙂

    I definitely suggest putting this idea in the gameplay suggestions topic.
