In a previous post, I wrote:

"Again, my problem with the scrolling of units in cities is that it only scrolls one space at a time. It would be much more effective if it scrolled five at a time, don't you think? Then you could quickly find the unit you want. This way, you could see all of the units in only 3 taps as opposed to 10-15 taps. I really feel this would be the best solution. If you just allowed it to wrap around, you still have to tap 5-6 times to reach the center units AND right now I know where units are by knowing the start and end of the list. If it wrapped around I may get confused. Thanks for your help."

The reply I recieved was:
"It is good if I have a chance I will go make that change."

I was just wondering if you still were planning to make this change, as it appears you decided to go with the wrapping instead. The wrapping is definetely a step in the right direction, however, to illistrate my point, if I wanted to make a destroyer, it would still take 6 taps either with wrapping or not. With my method it would only take 3 taps to see ALL the units. What do you think? It seems like it would be easy to do.

The wrapping was already in I have not had a chance to look at the five at a time scrolling.
