Perhaps a discussion of a WITP AE port to Unity might be in order?

That sounds like a very good idea because WITP-AE looks and feels like an OLD game. And there are things that need to be changed/tweaked. But who's got the time to do it? I'd like to be one of those that helps out.

Here is a proof of concept: I screencapped the units screen, saved as jpg, and used any of a billion online image to text/table converters. This one seems reasonably good and lets you copy as a table into excel from the website directly.

What I cannot do: automate this. Autohotkey, a common scripting program to convert inputs into a series of outputs (such as taking screenshots, moving the mouse wheel, etc.) does not work in WPP for some reason, probably due to administrator rights. I also do not have the programming skills to automate this into a website and then compile it every turn, nor do I have the expertise to collate data automatically as in the WitP tracker.

If Alvaro could just let us pretty please export the unit data as a csv it would make everything a whole lot easier ;)
