How many regional decisions?

How can I see how many regional decisions of what kind are left? The manual states, and the tooltips of some decions imply, that regional decisions are limited, so there must be some way to tell how many of those are left...?

The "Regional Census" screen? This does not work, not by clicking on a region's name, not by clicking anywhere else.

Searching a certain area

Hello everybody! First I gotta say: I really love PON, as I do most Ageod titles. The more complex the better and in this regard PON is probably the best I played so far. Though I have a problem that really annoys me: Maybe I simply overlooked it, but is there any way to quickly find and jump to a c...

When to enter structures

I've got some questions regarding the tactical and strategic implications of entering structures, especially in defensive situations. My own considerations: Being inside a structure makes you prone to being besieged with the immanent threat of surrendering, and thereby losing, a whole force. The tra...

Another point I don't get and that points me to some kind of engine malfunction ('bug') is, that normally, when there is a message saying one side succeeded in retreating from battle (as marked by the upper arrow), this is - or was - always followed by a battle message saying this side lost.

Retreating from victory?

In 1.06 RC2 latest hotfix I had a force under Gen. Banks retreat from battle, still it was declared a union victory. Is this behavior intended? If so, what's the explanation for this?

Though sometimes, when two opposing forces are in the same region without fighting, I get a message saying something along the lines of "Because of our overwhelming presence in region XY we won n% of military control over the enemy."

I think a reduction of NM for razing cities loyal to your side and a raise of the enemy's NM for destroying cities loyal to your opponent would be kind of realistic. Perhaps there should be a modification of the extent of the NM hit relative to the degree of loyalty, maybe +/-1 point at 51-75%, +/-2...

Think of it as a board game. You have Unit Pool with x number of type-y counters. Each time you build one you take it from the Pool and put it on the board. Each time you lose one, it is returned to the Pool to be built again. If a unit is captured, the control of the unit counter goes to your oppo...

My question is:

Why are units sometimes moved to other regions? The message unfortunately does not explain the reason why this happens and I don't know, either.

I always thought there should be a better (visual) representation of the "Intercept" special order in the UI, so you can tell more easily who is ordered to intercept whom.

But a distinct button for the "Intercept" special order might be a nice idea, too.
