'Gather' designation
« on: November 21, 2012, 10:25:30 AM »
I'd love to see a designation for an area to instruct nearby gnomes to gather all of a particular item within the desired area.

For example, say I want to support my smelter by bringing up all the copper immediately. With this suggestion, I'd like to designate the area where the mined copper lies for gathering, and select copper to be gathered. Gnomes would then gather all copper and bring it to the nearest, or designated, stockpile, preventing my smelter from making long trips to and from the mine for single pieces of copper.

Right now, I have to:
1) Designate a stockpile nearby,
2) Set the priority to one
3) Build a crate (or 2-3)
4) Wait for gnomes to gather all ore to the crate
5) Remove designation
6) Build crate near smelter

Far too tedious for what should be a simple task.
