Hi Mabi,

To begin with, many thanks for your effort in delivering this website for the world of the Nations fans.

I played a couple of games and found that it is very annoying when the game is pending for a player to simply click a button (when there is no option available for that player). For example:

- Select the Board for the last player.
- Clicking 'Complete' to place the Natural Wonder when there is available blank wonder space. (I think most of the players won't mind where the wonder is placed)

It would be good if we can select these as auto-move so that we can speed up the game.

Thanks and cheers

I don't think there is much room for more auto-moves in Nations. Yes, there is the board selection for last player, but that happens just once in a game, how much annoying can it be?
The Wonder placement can't always be automatic: even if there are free spaces a player can choose to over-build another (non-permanent) Wonder, maybe because there is a cost, or a negative effect, or whatever, if it's allowed by the rules it must be available. So once you take this into account the code for auto-move becomes more complicated and its benefit reduced.

As I have said before, I know it could be polished and improved in many ways but I have stopped development for Nations a long time ago and I don't plan to add anything more ('personal notes' was the last thing still in my to-do list). Only bug-fixing, or really easy little changes.
