Zeus- speak through entity as alternative to posession
New, WishlistPublic


It would be nice to see a more advanced way a Zeus can speak through a entity to the players. At the moment you have to posses a unit than go on direct communication and speak. This is realy nice but it takes time. Let's assume you have a scenario where you want to speak through several entitis in a short time span.. or you want to do something in "Godmode" while talking. This is not possible.

Therefore I suggest to add a speak through icon that can be placed on a entity only once. When in "Godmode" and in direct chat your voice is than transmited through this entity. Through dragging you can swap the entity you speak through. Creating a new Icon will delete the old one. If you however posses an entity the speak through modifier is disabled and you speak through the possesed entity instead.

This is a really good idea! Assuming direct control of a unit just to speak through him can sometimes be impractical and take more time than the zeus can spend.
