Hello everyone, new to the forums here.
After playing through about half of the original campaign I found it incredibly irritable that there are no shortcuts for creating buildings when so many other older games support them. It makes amassing a base 10x harder then it needs to be : (
If anyone could help me find a way to mod the original game files to allow this, along with the ability to track the pathing of the ai to create a more efficient fortress much obliges would be had!

Holy cow fast response, wasn't expecting it so quickly T_T
With apologies to my slow response, there are actually were alot of ideas I had in mind in terms of seeing the ai pathing and being able to measure it, and have hotkeys for the building placements. I also had ideas of making workers for building, making construction less op then now is and even allow players to use buildings when attacking.
Although the ai take the shortest route possible, I still have such a fing hard time determining which side of a building workers will enter, how the stockpile blocks routes both when it's empty and full, and all other minuteities of things that I'm sure people are overlooking. By being able to have the numbers showing exactly which building placements provide the fastest route will be a huge boost for the community.
In terms of building hotkeys, Blizzard has undoubtedly proved-ed it's a necessary function in just about ever rts to date. being limited not by the design but rather by your own apm I feel is the only way to create a even greater experience for Stronghold.
