Halt build on item

#1 Post by defaultuser » Sat Oct 01, 2016 9:25 pm

Has there been consideration of adding the ability to stop production on an item in the build queue? I know the situations where it would be useful aren't great in number, but I do find occasions. Examples would be building colonies where the growth tech hasn't quite caught up yet. You could build them until they were one turn out, then halt.

Right now, you have to shuffle things around on the queue and add items ahead to make sure the item doesn't finish before you want.

Added to trunk last week and in the latest test build, right click/pause (or resume, obviously)—was requested by one of the multiplayer groups giving feedback via Github.
