Who wants to get rid of the auto select and get a multi item moving feature??

Yes, auto-select is really annoying.

    Also, "what's autoselect?" should be added to the poll.

    It's when you place an object down and you can't select it again until you go through about 5 items that may or may not be close to what you're trying to select. See this is why we need to talk about this more

    Very annoying, to say the least, when you can't pick the item you want after multiple tries.

    Can't remember wat game it was I was playing but you could place a square and streach it over the map and what was in there (tree or buildings) would be selected so you could either mass copy/select or delete. Wud be good if u could multi select items.

    Auto select is not the problem, and might not be the right term. The game is just trying to figure out what item is tapped. The problem is that it does not adjust to the zoom to limit the range from the touch coordinate in selecting nearby items. It could certainly do with a smaller target radius, and altering that radius based on zoom level.

    And a lasso tool or some way to trigger multiple selection is really overdue.

    Moveing items are a pain. I had a glitch once on android, where every time i tapped the screan a white box would apear on that spot. It was about an inch by inch in size and it stayed as long as my finger was in contact with the screan. So the radius for selecting items is huge (wider then my finger) and this is where i think the auto select comes in. The game is designed that way to make up for the humongus select radius.

    If when selecting the item you want actually worked when you went to select it, then it wouldnt be a problem! the fact you have to keep selecting the item is what annoys me the most! Im not bothered about selecting multiple items i just would like the selection to work :lol:

    Being able to move a larger area would be nice.

    Another thing I wish they would incorporate is some type of feature to put all characters on a certain time task, or free characters when they are finished. I hate spending 10 minutes clicking thumbs and reassigning 35+ characters on tasks.
