Not playing a patched version of the game, so maybe this have already been issued by the devs. When i have to choose or renew a trade route, i'm like "ah, THAT." I wish i could hit a single button which picks automatically the best science yield, and the best gold yield among the best science one(s), and finally, the worst science/gold out of them for the AI. It would be cool if i could configure such a button for my own use. I have to say, I'm playing on low difficulty levels so maybe my choices tend to be "industrial" more than anything, so -for now- I would do a great use of such a button. Maybe later one could configure the trade routes so this automated button would aim certain civs and totally ignore others. Or things like that. N.B. : On a side note I would suggest to not limit convoys to earth and vessels to sea, but have instead a generic trade 'something'. I see no reason why such 'things' couldn't auto-embark as units do. Then the auto-button would need for sure to have an option land/sea routes. (because seas may be infested with monsters) Also, I think we should be able to set up rally points for trade routes. Jsut because if we are at war with somebody, we wish we avoid its territory totally.
