It probably falls into the category of a feature request and I have no idea how involved it would be to add it code-wise, so I am loathe to ask, but has any consideration been given to adding a "Go to Hex 'X,Y' Button"? I searched the forum and did not see any discussion on the subject.

I think it is self-explanatory, but essentially you would click the button, put in the "X,Y" coordinates where you want to go and the entered "X,Y" hex would be centered and selected on the map.

If such a button is feasible, it would make getting around the map much easier. Though, I am starting to develop a "sixth sense" of map coordinates the more I play. If nothing else, I am learning my Asia/Pacific/Oceania geography.

Thanks,

Henry

You can get to the general area you want to go by clicking on the strategic map in the lower right corner.  You can also go to specific locations from the various list screens.  For example clicking on the yellow text for the location of a TF from the TF list will take you to the location where the TF is.  Most of the other list displays work similarly.

Thanks Bill. I use the "go to" function on the list screens often. The "go to" button was just a thought at a slightly different approach and with a couple less clicks/sorting.
