Thanks for the comment, I appreciate the feedback. I guess that is one way to look at this, although you still could do it one by one even if this was implemented.I I enjoy the tinkering with buildings, ratios and production, and the exploration of the island.
The tedious building part, lack of building tools and constant placing, checking, removing and repeating is not to my liking. After the two hours this took to build my wrist was so sore that I had to quit for the day. Sadly RSI is a problem for me (and other people), and I always appreciate developers who take repeated strain into consideration when designing game mechanics.
