I think it should be like OP2 you have to hit ctrl m ect to get the morale and the Food is in that cart looking thing ect.  The only thing i thing is good is the Chat window.  Using simple Key commands to get to that will make the game window look much less clutered and cleaner.

But Why?
Op2 toolbar (sry for this now) SUCKS. Why? I get lost on things. I have to press 1001 button to see my objectives or anything else useful. I just don't get it.
OK i admit, we don't need too much Info on this toolbar... just the Basics.
Any thing else useful will be nice... if i remeber it

I think it seems like the OP interface sucks. But when you think about the amount of information available, I think it's fairly well organized. There are definitely things I don't like about it, but it's easy to sort through (even if it takes several key presses).
