Does anyone else keep purchasing for the wrong nation?????

If its not just me, PLEASE Bill/Hubert can you do something to make it clearer who one is buying/researching for please - or fit an undo button?

Thanks in advance.

Not me, but I support an undo button.

Happens all the time as I shift from Research to Purchase and I expect the country selection to hold.

From a UI it would also be nice if the MPP was actually shown on those screens so I would know how much I had not just guessing or trying to do the math.

An undo button for purchase, diplo and research would be indeed a nice new feature.

I do it all the time. Unfortunately, I've learned to save before doing research and diplo purchases. If I make a mistake, I'm forced to restore the save. Painful way to work around a game UI issue.

It would be nice if purchases for Units Research and Diplomacy are not locked in until the end of turn. This way, if you realize you need the MPPs elsewhere, you can go in, remove a purchase and restore MPPs for other things. The turn does not end until I click next turn so any purchases should not take effect until that time.

This would help when players forget to move the BEF out of France in 1940, transport US troops to Europe, lose a key unit or take more damage than expected so need to purchase a new one instead of something else and hundreds of other reasons I'm sure are unique to each player.

Thanks for listening.

Agree!

Of course you can train yourself to use a methodical turn order... but you shouldn't have to do that.....
