Hi,

it would be great to have an addition to the function alt+w like one defensive structure per mex.

Maybe lotus with ctrl+w and both for alt+w?

What would you guys prefer? A lotus or a picket or both?

The hard part here is figuring out what the controls for it should be. Alt and Ctrl are already used for whether you make 1, 2 or 4 solars around the mexes: https://zero-k.info/mediawiki/Area_Mex_Command

And Alt+w at the start is for putting mexes in holes.

The actual coding is already done (I literally have the modified widget file).

Actually, could just upload the widget for you and you put it in your widgets folder so that for you it makes defensive structures for you?

also I might have caused some misunderstanding.

The correct procedure i mean is:
- selecting a builder
- pressing w
- releasing w
- holding alt+shift
- dragging over mexes
- releasing alt+shift

this way I area mex with 2 solars (or wind gens) and my question was to add defensive structures to this "macro" or one def structure to the ctrl+shift macro for only one energy building.

hope it now more understandable...

How about:

- select con
- select <structure>
- press W to enable <structure> areamex mode
- <structure> gets built around every mex in selection circle

And bam! storagemex!

It's not a thing that exists but i think it would be better than having a special button to only build picket, and then another for people who prefer lotus

I don't think this should be implemented as a core function, maybe the community would prefer a widged where you can enable and disable lotus or picket or both.

So everyone can decide what's the best for him self.

For some reason this doesn't work for me?
When I press "w" the command overwrites the structure I selected before.

At least I tested this with lotus.
