just a couple of requests for the patch list:
first (and this is the PLEASE, PLEASE include point!), could the ops report be hyperlinked to the TF, base, unit mentioned? ie. if the report says 'TF 345 out of fuel', can i please just click on the TF number in the ops report and jump to that TF! Save me hunting through several screens, and then scrolling around the map trying to find the offending TF (only to discover it is NOT in fact out of fuel! But i guess that is a seperate issue?). Or 'DD Manley arrives at Balboa', let me click either on the ship name or the Base name and go directly to either. Sound reasonable?
Also, many sightings are mentioned in the ops report, but most dont show up on the screen at end of resolution phase. Why? Could we please include these sightings on the map? With a mouseover saying how (or who) last sighted them, and what was sighted. ie. '2 ships, heading west, sighted by PBY-5 from Pearl Harbor'. Or 'periscope sighted by PBY-5A from Boise'. Or 'radio transmissions detected'. etc.
Even if these sightings were false they still should appear on the map - i'm sure IRL all sighting reports would have been listed on the operations map!
I think we all use the ops report a lot more now - why not make it more user friendly?
Everyone wants this. Any programmer that looks at the code will decline to do it. Sorry - it's a biggie and a major rewrite.
