Feature Suggestion/Request
I'd like to have a "happiness" slider and a "Rest" priority in the Priorities menu. Basically it'd work by telling any townie below the set happiness level to rest if all the priorities higher than the "rest" one are being done.

Example: Priorities) Mine -> Rest -> Haul (Happiness slider: 80) If mining is needed, all Townies (even unhappy ones) will mine, but once all the mining is done, only townies with happiness >80 will haul, the less happy townies will simply stand around and rest (would be better if they actively seek things to make themselves happier)

Basically what this allows you to do is to set priorities that townies will work themselves to death doing (like the game does currently), but then also set some priorities as less important than resting, so only bored (ie sufficiently happy) townies will do these unhurried tasks.

Important ramifications: 1) You can queue up all your walls, mining, etc, then set them to a lower priority than rest and just let your townies do them as they become freed up, without stopping immigration, since your queued items won't be assigned to tired townies.

This would be very good, as well as maybe some overall happiness meter, with the needed level for immigration to occur shown.
This would be good as my current system for mass immigration is to expand my food supplies, having very large stockpiles with food production as high priority, and building many many new personal rooms, then leaving the computer on when I go away haha. Otherwise I tend to be a bit impatient and queue up too many tasks for my townies and they tend to be a bit unhappy, even with decorations everywhere (in market, dining room, feeding them cake etc).
