I hope that tuxemon will become an awesome game and every awesome game needs a nice gameplay, so here are some ideas how touch input could work on the world (if you replace swipes with scrolling maybe for a mouse , too).I'm currently reading through dive into python and will try to help with an implementation after this.What do you think of this kind of control and what would you do differently?(I hope the big pictures make no problems )
I don't like the idea of "click to move there" because I prefer controls and don't want to go to the wrong place . For the menu and interaction, that would be nice features.

I think to have the choice would be the way to go as probably more people dislike this kind of input but this should be no problem as an overlay is already implemented.I would prefer this on a phone, because I can see the complete game most of the time and have no control elements steal my screen place (on a PC or with a controller this would make no sense)
With the pathfinding already implemented, "click to move" could be done. I do prefer click/tap to move, but in some cases, a screen overlay is better. I think that we could implement them both, eventually.
Edge swiping would be problematic, so I think that a button on the overlay for it would be fine.

Thanks for this info and thats good to know , could you give me a point where i as a relative beginner could help? What do you mean with edge swiping, i meant that the swipe should happen more centered to not interfere with the system.
I like the idea to be able to tap on a tile to go to it. Regular arrow controls should definitely be kept too.

Swiping from an edge is reserved on top and bottom on ios and i'm sure that it is also forbidden on android as well. Even windows 10 has edge swiping gestures. As a beginner, you could do some brainstorming or document an API. Take a look at the Kivy API for some ideas.
swipe to the left to open the menu(not the border more in the center of the screen, some OS's or DE's reserve swipes from borders)

i dont see where benneti talks about edge swiping.. benneti even wrote "not the border" aka "not the edge", so you're both talking about the same, arent you?
We'll meet again, don't know where, don't know when. But I know we'll meet again some sunny day!
I think so, too
Ok, thanks for clarifying. Swiping to open a menu might seem too hidden to figure out. I would prefer a button to open a menu.
i think this could be mentioned when changing the input and it is pretty normal on touch based games on mobile platforms, for the api i will look at it and try it, never done this before
