Again, I ask what is more simple and elegant than listing the auxiliaries in the mouse over? There are no lists to scroll or buttons to click, nor is there so much writing in the mouse over so as to obscure the important information.
I don't think that it is asking too much of a WITP player to remember the few auxiliary tenders we have in the game:
AD - destroyer tender
AS - sub tender
AGP - PT tender
MLE - minelayer tender (I know, didn't exist IRL)
AR - repair ship
AV, AVD - seaplane tender
AE - ammunition ship
AO - fleet oiler
Combine this with anothers VC, BB, BC, DD...etc - and someone can lost with this - and imaginme another, vhen novice player KNOW we have destroyer tender in game, with D inside, but cant recall - it is DD, AD, DAA, DAX...etc ?
In game info of ALL abbreviations is very logikal - it is hard to rember to remember all subtypes of destroyer!!! or other ships.
Is not layzyness to dont write by hand all those abbr. -and wanting this to be displayed in game (sorry if this in game, I dont own it, but seriosly considering of buying it)- it is only wanting of display in which shall be in game from begining.
And after re reading of inital post and discusion I must agree with Hans - this is very needed for game and not-so-hardcore players.
