Feel free to use the ones I have in my Sig.
I really would like to be able to jump to officers and brigades (with high xp for upgrading them) from the ledger to the map like you could in HOI2. Also not manually having to count the amount of convoys you sink would be nice, esp after an entire expansion dedicated to the "battle of the Atlantic".
I suppose these are new feature that wont make it into a patch but I'm rather incredulous that these features aren't in the game already.
Top 6 wish list:
1) Make DOWs and naval combats default pop-up messages. Add a separate air vs. naval bmbing pop-up message.
2) Upgradable Soviet Guards (and elite MEC+ARM units)
3) Introcude a trade off cost of annexing/making Finland puppet in the Finnish Winter war.
4) Improve forts, engineer construction missions to get in line with the rest of the detail in the game.
5) Dissent/threat hit for refusing trade of surplus resources when one/both of the parties are at peace to avoid resource starving pre-war strategies in MP.
6) Limit GOI's
An Englishman thinks a hundred miles is a long way. An American thinks a hundred years is a long time. I am beginning to think a hundred dollars is a lot of money. Two of these facts are interesting. All of them are revealing. But only one of them is truly pathetic.

Ideally, I would like a built in tool similar to HOI organizer in presentation that's updated real time. It would include this kind of reorganization tool with group stats along with chain of command organization functions. Access it via a tab next to Statistics and a new screen appears with alternate view settings Like HOI Army Organizer. Click on a division, fleet or wing (squadron?), to open a new window listing the units and combined stats like those mentioned before in a new window. You could open more than one window (maybe up to four?) to instantly compare divisions/fleets/wings for group stat comparison, drag/drop individual units between them (if in the same province) or even "add" new replacement units (showing impact on division/fleet/wing and could be added to production que list which you can later edit if needed then press a button to add to actual production). I should add that division/fleet/wing stats would include a list of bonus from the chain of command. Instantly know whether it's better to have Patton as an Army commander or Army Group commander. This would be in addition to any mouse hover tool tips, the outliner & OOB brower since it would cover the entire screen. Probably too much to ask for, but the more readily accessible, accurate information a player has, the better.
Sorry, guys i've been offline for time because of soem personal stuff combined with work issues But got my things sorted, you still up for this?
