This might not be the right thread for it, but since we're talking about scouts and auto-exploring. . .
One of the things I noticed is that the auto-explore action gets taken at the beginning of a turn (also that there is no visual cue whether it is on or off). This means that often times I'll set a guy to autoexplore, notice something I want him to take a look at, and then mutter to myself as he has already taken his move that turn. Would be nice if he took auto-explore actions at the end of his turn instead, like in GalCiv.
