Loads better than the previous drop down box. No more scrolling through the pictures to locate a city. Please please keep it this way.

"Name (pop[, Capital]) x|y" would be ideal for most.

With that, the non-enhanced version would be far preferable anyway.

The new drop down makes playing on an iPad much easier, too!

And I don't think the font size is too small either (like someone mentioned) - it's the same as the font for the resource overview which we've never had problems with.

As it is, it's neat, concise and most importantly makes switching between cities fast. Agree that listing pop alongside the city name would be good though - at least it's what everyone is used to.

Yes, please keep it this way. Thumbs Up

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

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.

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.

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.

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...

@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.
