Awesome game, having so much fun playing it :D
A small suggestion would be to add some kind of warning/message when ending the turn if you have decisions left. Some turns I just forget to look at the decisions menu and after pressing end turn I'm hitting myself on the head because of it.

I'm really enjoying the game and agree with the warning message.

Another suggestion is if the "WASD" keys could also be used as a substitute for the arrow keys.

I might make it a Prefs setting. Because personally I often finish my turn without making some decisions. Anything that is urgent will be dealt with by your Secretary. Anything that is not will return next round.

WASD is a bit tricky as i already used 2 of the keys, but i'll see if i can do something about this. Your not the first one to ask for this. Maybe by a Prefs setting as well.

Thanks for the feedback guys.

Best wishes,
Vic

Possibly screen drag via mouse?

Currently at 5/8" dpi temporarily (trying all of them since I'm on a 3440x1440 monitor) and moving south/downwards is a struggle- I have to zoom out then mouse to edge then zoom back in. Sometimes I can get it to work but it is very jerky.

I'm going to try the middle dpi setting in the meantime.

Thanks in advance.

The resolution changes in the Prefs provide for a faster rendering than the DPI changes. Also note that you can use the scroll keys on your keyboard to move the map.

Best wishes,
Vic

I think there are too many decisions, there should be less decisions but they should be more significant.

Something else that was suggested on another forum I'm on:

These screens are a bit hard to read:


By adding some colour and modifiers, maybe decrease the distance between values, might make it a bit more readable:

Took the words out of my mouth - colour-coding reports is a must and would make life so much easier!

Also, I'd really appreciate a mouse mouse function on the map. Hold middle mouse perhaps?

Another small improvement:
When you set zone orders and then press rename the zone, it resets the orders you've set before, it would be nice if these could stay so you won't have to set them again

As a contrary view to that expressed above....please keep the decision quantity and not reduce it.

Thank you for an outstanding game

You meant regarding the amount of Decisions, right?

Me too, like them as they are :)

Good idea, but for god's sake if you're going to colour code things either include a Colour Blind mode or don't use solely Red and Green!

Yes, please, screen drag with middle mouse button would be amaaaazing. As I'm sure you know, Vic, it is pretty common in most modern 4x games, so if you can make it happen down the road (I'm sure post-release patching takes priority) I think it would be a popular addition.
