    When I select a military unit for production in a city, the game engine places an asterisk in front of it and continues producing it ad infinitum. How do I turn off this feature?

    This should only happen if you press Alt when making the selection. Be sure that you are not doing that. If you are certain, have a look at the options screen and make sure that you don't have something checked "on" there that is giving the autoproduction priority.

    If you are using BUG or the BAT Mod, that "feature" is sometimes enabled by default.

    Use CTRL-ALT-O to bring up the BUG options screen and check that the setting isn't ticked. It's in the city screen I believe and you'll have to scroll down to see the setting. It should be un-ticked for normal behavior.

    Thanks, I am running the Buffy 3.19.004 (includes BUG/BAT). There is an option to "build military units forever" and "build civilian units forever" on the city screen. Both of those items are unchecked though.
