Boy, do we need this... At least, those of us with the ability to build fortifications do.

Please change the interface such that it is possible to spend x amount of AP building fortifications in one fell swoop, exactly like how infuse operates. It is painfully tedious to have to click that button over and over and over again, just to build up the fortifications.

I believe this is in place for life defense situations, so defenders can't throw up a full 500 HP of fortifications in one move before the raiders can react. The fortifications go up at a pace slow enough to take down.

It's just as tedious to tear them down. But yes, F5 is your friend.

I also find it tedious, because it is right at the bottom of all the action buttons. Scroll down, click. Scroll down, click. Build Fortifications should be moved to the top, up with Repair Door and the like.

I don't know what all the F5 talk is... F5 turns the volume up louder on my laptop, which is not helpful in this case.

I do not think enough people will have Structural Engineering and be active and have enough AP to pop up 500 points of defenses to make this all that common of an occurance. And even if there are, you can pretty much only do it once, after that you're rather spent on energy and won't be able to actively defend all that much.

The potential for this being unbalancing (which is not all that high, in my opinion) is counterweighed by this: I have had three deaths in the past few days from raids on strongholds -- these deaths are notable because I was one- shot killed by enemies doing nearly 100 points of damage in a hit.

Jeebus.

So while it seems the more violent among us are really enjoying all their cool abilities to take out 1 character for 1 AP, how about we let those of us who want to spend 50 AP putting up defenses with one click do so? It's going to be done anyway, so we might as well make it as least carpal tunnel syndrome causing as possible.

Promote, but perhaps not in the way you think.

The time it takes to build forts is an essential part of countering their power in live combat.
