however… it loses it on hitting the main menu…? (which one? all menus are ‘main menu’…) that’s only slightly joking - however, if you complete an honourable victory and go to the shiney-things screen (fleet HQ), the only way out is to the main menu…
the menu structure isn’t quite as transparent or consistent as it could be over the whole game, and calling “up a level” “main menu” consistently doesn’t (to me) help.
maybe if you win a battle, the pop-up could detect whether this deployment has been saved, and if not - another option appears which is “save winning fleet orders for the history books” (or similar)?
