      Dear Generals,

      while our beta testers are still busy testing the new Paratroopers, we are bringing to you more bugfixes and graphical improvements which will give you a greater overview and precision in your commands. The first highlight is the reintroduction of the unit start animation in the enhanced graphics version, which gives direct feedback when units start following your orders. Next we implemented new path ending icons that give you a greater overview of where your armies are heading and which type of order they have. We also made the selection of units much more precisely aligned to their image on the map. Last but not least we added ground shadows for the flight arrows of airplanes, to give players better visual feedback of the actual flight path.
      Please read the change log below for an overview of all new features and bugfixes.

      Graphical improvements (WebGL version):
      • A smooth starting animation is shown when giving a move command to a unit.
      • Unit selection is now pixel-perfectly aligned to the unit image instead of being an invisible box.
      • Airplane flight arrows now have a shadow underneath to accurately depict their actual flight path.
      • End points of paths on the map now show a new icon depicting the current order of the unit.
      • Path previews now display an attack icon when crossing enemy provinces.
      • The province colors in the morale view are now lighter again.

      General improvements:
      • In the desktop version all menus now have a matching header image.

      Bugfixes:
      • We fixed an issue that led to players achieving a solo map win despite being members of a coalition or team. Coalition or team victory conditions now have priority over the solo victory condition.
      • Achievement rewards now can be collected in a timely manner after unlocking them, without a long waiting time in between.
      • Airplanes on aircraft carriers can now always be selected properly.
      • We fixed a bug that led to attack vectors being displayed on certain maps after the game had ended.
      • WebGL: When moving a unit into an enemy province, the red attack path color is now always shown correctly
      • WebGL: Clouds no longer block the view in the middle of the screen.


      We hope you like the changes and look forward to the upcoming release of the Paratroopers. You don’t have to wait much longer!

      not being able to click on units past the seam on pacific ocean
      That should be fixed now, except for the few units stuck inside the map seam itself, which require the alternate selection methods.

      There are many alternate methods of selecting units when directly clicking on them is ineffective:

      You may hold down the right mouse button and circle the area to select the units. Sometimes a "triangle" motion works better than a circle motion. This will make a gray shadow and select all the units in the loop. In the case of planes: Having the circle include the airbase or carrier they are stationed from is necessary. You will then need to use the split command to separate the planes from the carrier or units at the airfield.


      Or, For units with a known designation, such as AB12, you can use Ctrl +F and type in the unitID to select the unit. You may be able to determine the designation from newspaper reports or from the unit list as if you were going to trade an army to someone in diplomacy menu. All of your units will start with the same letter code.

      Or, The units can be selected by cycling through the units with the left and right arrow keys until the desired unit is found. Typically if you start by selecting a nearby unit and use an arrow key you will get other units within view. In some cases reloading the game will freshen the list and sort order, and enable you to find the unit easier with this method.
