also the empire resources page would be nice

also a page "all moving units" showing just that, all units moving from all your towns on a single page.

and a pony

Who doesn't want a pony?  Clap
+1 from me about the new dropdrown.  Much faster and easier.

Yes, we need the population back in that menu... it was such a great quick reference, meaning... "Oh, I'm going to increase my population today, what city should I focus on?"  Bam, pull down menu will tell ya where to go... NOW, player icon, towns, sort by size, sort again to get the largest first... four clicks versus one, just to get reference information.  Please

We have temporarily disabled the graphical town chooser due to a number of issues players have been experiencing with it. A regular drop-down box now serves this function.
I expect the decision is already made about whether the desirable end-point is to have the detailed drop-box or the (current) simple one; expressing a preference is moot, because the simple one is just a temporary compromise while the detailed one is debugged. I don't think anyone's playing experience has been compromised.

FWIW, I don't mind the new drop-box. It is good for me because I can see it all without moving the eye too much (whereas previously I had to move my eyes a lot), but I slightly miss the (non-essental) population count.

Slightly off-topic, but it was mentioned above:

As much as I'd like a Dashboard page, I don't think it will arrive soon (though I'll be glad if I have to eat my words).

Speculation: Depending how the game originally evolved from single towns to multiple towns, it might need a rewrite of the things that make your resource numbers change on-screen, and it would add substantial load to the servers (and your data usage).

On a similar side note, I'd also happily get rid of the small icon in the advanced resources pop-up.
It makes lag the pop-up quite a bit; I realize it is my slow connection, still...

Personally, I like it better. It's more compact and easier to select from :)

I also don't mind losing the graphic, but I'd like to keep some of the old information about the cities. For players who have their cities scattered all over the face of Illyriad (like me), listing what region the city is in makes it easier to quickly find at times. And the actual city population was more useful than "large city," though I don't find this information critical for the city selection drop-down.

Agree to both.
