Hey, I love the ability to name my saves and all of that ... but ... could we maybe get a save & quit button?

Anyone else play for a couple hours, quit their game and lose everything?
Agreed. Haven't made that mistake yet, but i did notice the absence of that option.
I'd also like a 'save and quit to desktop' option.

I would like a manual save button for campaign and an exit without saving button, or be able to toggle autosave.
Currently there is a manual save and a quit option, but there is now no save and quit option and people are forgetting to save first, as it used to be save and quit only.
The mock-up above is for after you press quit. You still have the manual save on the pause menu, but if you hit quit, it then gives you the options to quit, quit to desktop, save and quit, save and quit to desktop or cancel if you hit the button by mistake.
In doing so, it also prevents the loss of game-play progress by accidentally hitting the quit button.

This has been brought up a couple times already (by me as one of those people) and for some reason they don't want to add it which makes no sense as the R&D and creative have this already which should be simple to add to the campaign.

The autosave has screwed me many times in campaign as there is no visual indicator telling you WHEN it saves, lack of interval options for the autosaving, and it seems that the autosave starts up soon as you press Load to start a gamesave which also compounds the problem as I believe @Pink Kitty said that the AI starts up before you can do anything, which if you were in the middle of a battle you get screwed as you can't fight back for precious seconds.

It's late over here so this is a very crude mock-up, but this should be roughly what you're all after:

Maybe have a 'Save and Continue' option too? Sometimes I want to keep playing and not have to reload to continue playing.
