I like the new one so much I don't ever want it to go back.

Now all we need is an "Empire Summary" page which lists all units/resources across all towns in one screen.

Always know which city is my capital.  Sometimes Elgea and I agree to disagree.

Thanks for fixing the problem.  I agree that having the population listed for the cities is nice, it means I don't have to go to my towns to see current populations.  I don't think it's necessary to tell players which city is their capital on the dropdown.  Do people forget which city is their capital?

@Kumo: html dropdowns support item groups natively, which results in one row per group with additional indented rows per item in that group.  The horizontal space taken would be minimal.  The important thing is that the city ordering and relation is much improved.

If there is limited space, I'd just put "Name-- Pop # -- Region".

The x,y location imo is a less useful quick reference than the region, but the actual pop # is much more useful than the pop grouping...

The font isn't too small, but it should be black, if it isn't already.  (It appears to varying degrees dark brown to me in Chrome, Firefox, and Opera but that could all be sub-optimal sub-pixel hinting).

The only change I'd make other than adding real population count and location in place of population strings, is grouping by region.

We need the city population back on the menu, "the Legendary City" information is pretty useless.  The population info is more specific and more useful IMHO.

As others are saying, I actually like it the new way. I don't really mind not seeing the population or where the city is in the drop down, as I can just go to my profile for that information and seems kind of useless when selecting a city.

Yes, please keep it this way. Thumbs Up

Now, if I could get a Dashboard page too, Illy UI would just perfect for me.
