Actually, I'd like an interface without any buttons at all...
It can be a _lot_ better IMHO... A help button explaining how to handle
things and making it intuitive is clear enough I think...
(I'd like to make it work like the worklist in Master of Orion II)

If the buttons are removed there is more room...
Not sure how I feel about removing Turns all together though...
I'd like to try to have less info in Current worklist than in Available
items - You don't really need to know that much about the things You
have allready decided to build - but I do think number of turns is good
to have when deciding what to build... Not sure if they should take the
producttion stock into account though... I'm guessing not counting it
would be better...


Now take a deep breath, smile and don't take life so seriously... :)
