Perrin, I think you misunderstood my post. I completely agree with you the option can be very useful and valuable. However, I can't imagine playing a whole game with it; I'm proposing a way to easily switch from one setting to the other. (Where an "easy way" means not having to go to the site-wide settings and "permanently" changing it for all games.)
I'm imagining something like changing the menu in the lower left corner to split "Settings" in "Game Settings" (with the current menu behind it) and "Interface Settings", where you can toggle, for instance, how the camera behaves. That's also why I was asking for other people's opinions on what they would like to easily change in-game; otherwise that new menu will look so incredibly "empty". (Of course, if anyone has a better suggestion on how to access such a menu, that's very much welcome as well.)
BTW, two semi-related issue are that you can't look at a team mate's orders and your own at the same time and cannot easily step through orders in the planning phase.
Have you seen one of my other suggestions, ["Preview Orders" button in Confirmation Phase](http://warlight.uservoice.com/forums/77051-warlight-features/suggestions/2650223
)? If it would show the corresponding order of each team member at the same time, we'd suddenly have an incredible planning/collaboration tool, especially if we can choose to already share our (planned) orders with team mates, but without committing them yet.
(If you show the, let's say, third order for each team member, it's impossible to know in which sequence those will occur (relative to each other), but all orders by all team member issued on earlier turns (in this case, turn 1 and 2) are guaranteed to have already taken place and all orders issued on later turns (here, turn 4 and onwards) are guaranteed to take place later.
John, I know the problem you're talking about, but as far as I know it's unrelated (would still be nice if it were fixed though, how about you make a thread in the bugs forum about it?).
