If I am clicking on a hex with military units in it but no assets, and I have the assets tab open, assume that I want the unit info tab opened. And vice versa. If I was just looking at a military unit on the info tab, and I click on a hex that has no military units, but does have an asset, assume that I want to see the asset tab.

Slightly risky, as if I'm touring around looking for Assets, and happen to click on empty tiles/army tiles, then the tab is switched away outside of my command?

Understood, but two things.

1) If I am looking for assets, I probably have unit counters turned off. That can additionally be taken into account.

2) Even if it is a "wrong guess", overall the times it would be a "right guess" would be higher. So in the long run it is better to manually override your "exception" than to not guess at all.

The bottom-tab is the most cumbersome part of the UI. There's a lot of information down there. I kind of like your idea of connecting the bottom-tab to the map mode.

OK that's a really good idea. You just have to call it SmartKlik™ technology. ""The game SENSES what you want to see and displays the correct screen, AUTOMATICALLY!"

Seriously, that's brilliant. Please make it so.

Not sure new players will always hide unit counters (I don't always do it for a start), which I fear would lead to frustration as per Shard's reply.
