I'm still very new to the game, and I'm loving it! But here are a few minor suggestions:
1) When I'm on a city tile, looking at the city, it would be nice if there were arrows I could click to go from city to city in my regime. Often, after all, when I'm looking at cities, I want to look at more than one of them.
(Maybe there's a hotkey which does that? I never use hotkeys, and I don't pay much attention to them. The reasons don't matter. But my suggestions are all about when using a mouse.)
2) When I'm choosing a zone target for stratagems, clicking on the zone should not just select it as a target, but move the underlying map to that city, too. That way, I can quickly close the stratagem window and look at the city, if I need to confirm anything before making that decision.
It's a minor thing, but then, most of these are.
3) When selecting a leader target for stratagems - and any other time when we need to scroll through a list - please let us use the mouse wheel for that, instead of needing to click on the bar and drag it. Using a mouse wheel is just automatic for me, and it's always a surprise when that doesn't work in a situation like this.
4) When setting up a new unit model to research, it would be great if we could look at a summary first, before we finalize the research. As it is, we immediately start researching it when we make the last decision. Sometimes, it's actually surprising that it is the last decision. But mostly, if would be great if we could see, on one page, what decisions we've made, before committing to the research.
(I've been very disappointed at the motorbike units I've created. They're so slow, compared to my buggies. Now, I'm not sure if that's the result of decisions I made or not. But it would be a lot easier to catch potential problems if I could do one final check before deciding on the exact model I'm going to research.)
Again, these are just a few minor improvements (to my mind, at least). No big deal. I'm loving the game! Thanks for that!
PS. Note that I'm not a wargamer. Just personal taste, of course. But if this were just a wargame, I wouldn't have bought it, just because I quickly get bored with games like that. But this is so much more than that.
I need war in a game like this, but economics, diplomacy, and research probably interest me more. So I'm loving the combination of all of these things. And in a science fiction game, to boot? I'm in heaven.
