Pinned Are you a Mobile App warrior?

    • Would anybody happen to know what devices they use for mobile?
      I am looking to buy a cheap mobile device for mobility and help people out with their questions about mobile.

    • The thing that annoys me the most on mobile is when there are lots of units close together you get a circle of icons to choose from. The problem is the order is different each time he circle is displayed. Try displaying them sorted by ID or something consistent.

      Why? Because of SBDE I often end up with stacks the same size. So if I have 5 stacks of tactical bombers each having 5 bombers they all look identical in this circle. If I pick the first one (starting from the 12 o'clock position) it is a different stack each time. If I try to cycle clockwise there have been times that I kept re-selecting the same unit at different positions. I have to keep trying again and again keeping track mentally of which ones I've seen and given updated orders to...

      For planes I would like to be able to select all of the groups in the circle and give them one patrol order. That would make it even more efficient than a “memory” of which one is where.

      Or some sort of menu where you can select units. I always wanted an order of battle menu even before mobile, but it would make mobile useful to have such a list.

      I really like the battle menu one, but it is only useful if it shows the units of the battle menu. If battle menu is not good/too grand of a plan, I would like to tweak the add army button, so instead of clustered buttons we drag for the space we would like to select. Then it would select all armies within that selected space.

    • Attack range

      I use the mobile app exclusively. I would really like to see the attack range in the unit information section added.

      Example 60km for lvl 1 and 2 artillery. 70km for lvl 3 artillery etc.

      This information would greatly enhance the mobile version in terms of research and battle strategy.

      From the looks of the manual this information is given to PC users.

      Actually, you can see it in the info button in the production menu (I think). I don't really check it because I already know the range.
