    Good idea. The star menu sorts them completely wrong though and the new sorting feature does nothing useful. I'd like to see biggest gens first (qm, mg, vet, mma, etc) in star menu. For sending gens with loaded troops first still ordered by size could be good. Sometimes I send an empty gen to adventure though like when an mma returns from ls and is sent to my adventure.

    Actually, I have my star menu in a sequence I am happy with. I had to rename my generals, but it works.

    My strategy:

    MMA: A1, A2...
    MG: B1, B2
    Drac: C1, C2
    MoD: D1
    BHG: E1
    Grim: G1
    Tavern: T1, T2, T3, T4...
    QM: Q1, Q2 (Claus is Q3)

    Default sequence then puts MMAs all together, then MGs, etc. If the Send Army window stuck with that, I'd be happy.

    As Wulfmeister said it is easy to choose the order of generals in Star Menu. Send general window should use the same order.

    I agree. I have generals (& explorers & geologists) named in Star for the order that suits me - would like to see the same order for available generals in the Send menu.

    I strongly disagree with any naming convention which dictated by a bureaucrat who has had their imagination surgically removed. Prepare yourselves for the arrival of my Dracs who will feast handsomely tonight.

    This is one of my biggest annoyances in game.
    1. Sorting should be consistent and done the same way as in STAR menu
    2. The Send Army dialog is not showing three full rows of generals so mousewheel scrolling is way off

    This is annoying but the biggest annoyance is the chat cursor focus change. "head own typing this and that", look up and none or very little has been typed
    Have fun!

    I completely agree. It stuns me (and annoys me greatly) that when sending generals the order is clearly random - in fact I have closed the window, immediately re-opened it, and I see the generals in a different order. It's bizarre.

    I know SQL doesn't return rows in any particular order by default but adding a simply key would solve it. Since the star menu (as mentioned) can maintain an order the send window could use the same I would think.
    Sorry, but I've slept since then...

    Your going to have to do some hard selling to convince me of that.
