Building upgrade suggestion

I think it would be really useful when the area required for upgrading a building changes if there were a function that enabled players to rotate their buildings for a better fit, its very frustrating trying to juggle space especially when you've little room left for manoeuvre and nowhere you can drop items and retrieve them during the process.

As I've pointed out in an earlier thread, given that the perspective of the game is 45 degrees, the 2 dimensional nature of the graphics is not a problem (all existing graphics could simply be applied left-right reversed and you would have support for rotated footprints).

Having said that, it is one of the core components of the game to work with the ever-changing shapes of the game. It is unlikely that that will be changed.

It's possible to use 'teleport' enchantments to temporarily free up space, and then move things around. Extra city expansions are perhaps too obvious to mention.

They'd need to render new images. Just flipping the existing building renderings would have the pre-rendered shadows on the wrong side, any logos or text on buildings would also be the wrong way around etc.
