There's plenty of room over and under the "death star", at least at high res. Ideally, this unit panel (and others) could be minimized so...
Yeah, but different resolutions use different death star space, so that might not be possible.
Maybe the Unit Display at the upper right could be slightly expanded ?
I like having as much map as possible at sight
You've got 2560 x 1440 and you want MORE ?? Seriously though, what if there were more zoom choices [other than the three currently available] ? I mean, I think you can get to a certain point where you get a lot of map, but its not really playable because the units are too small.
The 'death star' that you guys mention is actually redundant. The battle planner shows how much of a turn a battle should take, although not entirely accurate due to randomness. And at the end of each round of combat you are told how much of the turn is left. Why not eliminate that redundant visual, the star, and stretch the buttons down to occupy that space giving more room for other things that are important.
The "death star" is not redundant. It's very informative and enables you to quickly see how much turn will be burnt. As for the battle planner, come on..., who uses the battle planner but absolute beginners...?
After playing the game since TOAW I, me.
