Maybe I can tell something about making cover positions easier. We did build something long time ago, but we never got around to make it work properly, so we never made it obvious, nor talked much about it, but since we are on the topic, maybe you guys can give it a try and tell us about it. If you click and hold on a cover position with the right mouse button, you can adjust which cover the soldier is going to take by keeping the right mouse button pressed and moving the mouse around. It works decently in most cases (corners, pillars), except where it would be most useful: entryways, it works-ish, but it's far from perfect in my opinion. But it is something we will improve on, at some point.
Our general development philosophy is that we are laying down a base for the game which is good enough to play or test around, and as time goes, we make incremental improvements everywhere (competition systems, gameplay improvements like the last update, etc...). So the general rule is that you can all assume that most of what you think could be easily improved, will be. It might take time because of everything that needs to be improved (and the sum of it is a scary amount of work), but it will probably be. Switching room mode is one of these things we will work on at some point.
