Subject - Page scrolling of unit pick lists

I was playing with the scrolling of the unit create lists and decided to go with making it scroll by two rather than by page. Scrolling by page was kind of confusing. Also in the next version because there are multiple city types each city can produce less things so its not as big an issue.

what was confusing about it?

There wasn't a sense of continuity in the list itself, because you didn't have a frame of reference (the other units you was just looking at) when you clicked the arrow.

You still get some of that with jumping two at a time but its not as bad. We will try this out and see if it is a good compromise. If not its just as easy to jump by the number of items on a page as it is to jump by two so its a trivial code change to change it again.

just an idea to make everyone happy. why not make it a user-defined option in the option page?

I could make it a setting in the settings file, but honestly I just ran out of space on the options screen making room for the mod settings

will there be a list for groups in the 1.5? Also is there any way to make a city NOT produce any units?

the lists of groups wont make it into 1.5 but it will be in one of the later releases. Making a city not produce units is also planned for the release when money is introduced.
