Thank you for making Construct accessible and understandable for people who want to create games but have difficulties in programming.
You've added a lot of powerful tools, behaviors, and other features to your beautiful engine that are not only time-saving, but also user-friendly. However, for 4 years I have not been able to find a solution when implementing RTS projects, when units can search for a path and adequately move in formation.
I've looked through a lot of topics and tried to find solutions to the unit sprite overlay problem for a long time, but I haven't found anything suitable and similar to the behavior in the classic games like WarCraft 2, C&C, Settlers, KKND, Dune. These games are many years old, but I do not know how to create something like this in Construct. The behavior of "pathfinding" is not at all friendly with "Solid" and you have to make complex combinations of different behaviors and tricks so that units can move in formation, surround the target or block the path. To be honest, I'm not happy with the result and I'm very upset, why can't I make a game in Constuct similar to the old RTS games?
If someone can convince me otherwise, I will be infinitely happy and grateful...
I also want to pay attention that I am not alone in finding a solution to this problem, you can find on your forum a lot of topics that raise this issue, as well as in my native c2community.ru people are also trying to find solutions. But, in the end, everyone has to use the available mechanics instead of the one they actually want.
At the moment, I come to the conclusion that Construct is not suitable for creating games in the style of classic RTS and the best solution is to change the engine to Unity, since there are good examples for the mechanics of RTS.
So I really ask you to rework the "Real Time Strategy(RTS)" template. This mechanics is absolutely crude and does not correspond to the logic of RTS. You offer users to improve it on their own, but adding their own features turns out that this mechanic initially creates a lot of problems. Is it normal that objects can pass through each other?
Or add more settings to the "pathfinding" behavior. Because you can tell the object which obstacles to avoid, but in truth it does not work correctly and is not suitable for RTS.
Thanks for your attention. I hope for your understanding and response.
