... and one other thing. It shows the notes written to the ship when you click on aunowned planet your ships are orbiting. (Didnt test how this works when orbiting an enemy planet...) I can see this feature to be actually rather usefull in times, especially if the view is identical when orbiting an enemy planet. Unfortunately you cant choose any of those ships yet - it appears.
Thanks for the feedback. I was using the same text box (hittext) that is used to draw the mouse over listing on the right side of the screen. That code doesn't include a select function by default although it does include the notes display.
