So you deploy a few ships, group select them and give them orders. But then you realize you want to deploy a couple more of the same type. But they have the default, dumb orders. Is there a way to match orders from existing ships to newly deployed ships? It would be nice if there was. I’ve had to cancel out of challenges a few times because I realized I assigned my ships dumb orders by accident, whoops. It is also a little deceptive, because you can group select all the ships of a certain type, but the orders listed may or may not actually be applying to all of them.
Also, on the ‘add orders’ dialogue box, it would be nice if you could select several orders and click okay, rather than have to select one, add it, close the dialogue, re-open, add the other order you want, etc. etc. It would be nice to be able to group select and add multiple orders. Boom, quick, done.
It takes several minutes to get the fleet all lined up and ordered properly, part of the time spent is due to the interface. A little streamlining would help us get to the gratuitousness quicker.
