Why do I have to do it one by one?
It's because apparently ergonomics is the one point that is never considered in the design or the development of the game but only if people massively complain.
I really like GalCiv and I don't know why, but somehow they always find a way to make every feature an ergonomic nightmare ... and it is even less understable if you consider that every sane person playing just one GalCiv game could spot such simple ergonomic problems. If they would just sit down and ask themself things like:
- How many clicks do I need to do X?
- How does it feel if I have to do X for more than 10 planets/ships/starbases?
- Asuming I load this game after a week of hiatus - do I know what is going on with X?
But obviously such questions are alien to the developers. It's like they only concentrate on the abstract gaming principle but never ask themselves if something can be done in a convenient way. The result is that you get nice features but a horrible UI.
