Okay, I'm a returning WitP player and working hard to get up to speed on the AE Japan side. Maybe bad for me to be asking for this, but... Turn 1 as Japan is a lot of work...
One thing I wish for every time I restart doing turn 1 is a ship filter for an individual class. Something on ships display perhaps that says "Show all ships of this Class". I want to be able to see where all my Fubuki(I)'s are on turn 1 to ship them off to await upgrade to Fubuki(II)'s on 1/1/42 for instance, or move all my Akasi class xAK's to a collecting point for convoy systems. I want to convert my Ansyu-C AK's to PB's, etc. You can do this to an extent by filtering ship types and sorting by endurance, speed, etc. but it is still a pain.
Oh, and actually displaying the class on lists would be nice.
When I use the "All Ships" button at the top of the screen and sort the list by "Type" (CVs first, etc.) I find that within each type the ships pretty much line up by class - i.e. all your Fubuki I ships should be in a single section of the list. There may be the odd exception where a ship was added to the DB after most of it was complete and it would then have an index number out of sequence with the rest.
