This is not possible to switch to "Metrical system" instead of "Imperial system"??

I'm a little confused. Both sides used in reality the "Metrical system".

Could be because the devs are Yanks,the only country in the world that still uses Imperial system

I feel that they should have used cables for the Russian side.

Terminus - why do so many of your posts have to be phrased in such a condescending way?

a) Do you think that possibly Cerion's first language is not English?
b) Is it not obvious what he meant?

I prefer the Imperial figures, because I am that old, but it would be nice if these things had different options to suit other needs. Like the date format, I would prefer a European alternative option to set. Have these settings flexible, with both available.

Could it be that the US doesn't use the Imperial system either ... forex, US Gallons vs Imperial Gallons, US Survey Foot vs. Imperial (International) Foot etc.

Personally, I prefer Klingon units of measurement. :-)

I bet there would be a huge effort involved in going through all of the code and inserting conversion factors into all of the calculations, as well as redrawing the entire map to align with a new hex grid.

Metric system: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Metric_system

I regret, yes, my first language is not English (is evident to anyone )

I meant the development phase of the game, not now. I understand that it is too late.
