Hello,
it would be very nice of you were able to select and already built compound and then save it as a macro as most production layouts (atleast in 1404) were rectangular and therefore allowed a reciprocal integration into the island's main layout.
Even the simple rectangular selection tool that is already in place for selecting units is good enough to work with all production lines in 1404.

I meant to write "it would be very nice of you were able to select an already built compound", not "it would be very nice of you were able to select and already built compound", but I don't know how to edit my thread. :confused::(

Something like the blueprints (https://forums.ubi.com/showthread.php/1765340-Blueprints) discussed in this older thread?

Yes, it only differs in that in his suggestion the blueprint isn't necessarily recorded after the first compound was built, but I would be very pleased anyway.
Thanks for posting this. *thumbs up*

Seems to lead in the direction of having a town planning office. Perhaps this is something that could be explored for a later update. The town planning office might provide different planning overlays as manual build options, or even provide suggestions to change current layouts to improve efficiencies and expansion?
