Re: Counter for Multiplayer Quiters...

Re: Suggestion: Default action when clicking

The default hasn't been changed since the game was released for Windows in 1999.

Re: Suggestion: Default action when clicking

Options -> Switch mouse buttons will make left-click "select" and right-click "act".

I haven't even found time for a fix for that one mod loading bug...

Re: Most Critical Upgrade

In general, not getting power upgrades quickly can screw you over long-term.

Anything more specific usually requires details about the situation.
