The main problem I can see - (Unless you use Chips idea) is that users might get confused with the missing territories.

Chip's idea is better - as the territory list is always complete... and the number drop down changes - which is not used as a point of reference.

C.


I think most would understand after a few games, and it isint that hard to understand. But a other way of doing it is to set it as Filter on control panel: From Easy Fortifcateing [v] to Moderate For...[x]

And as confusing as you say it is i really dont think it is but if i hear more complains, i use chipv idea only.

Good suggestion potiusmori, benjikat and Androidz. It is now live :)

Also made it default to max # of armies, as suggested here: Fort All Armies, not One

This should cut down on the number of clicks and associated cases of carpal tunnel syndrome.

Long live reinforcements!

I don't see why the army box had to move to the right? Seems kind of pointless to me.

Otherwise though, a good update.
