Summary0015637: clicking an enemy or ally in the planet overview/summary deselects your ships
DescriptionIf you have some ships selected and you want to attack an enemy in the overview panel, you can't right-click directly on it (see 0015636). And if you click to move the camera there, you can't just right-click on the actual ship either, because clicking on an icon deselects your own ships even though it's just moving the camera.

I'd like to, for instance, be able to click a target icon in the overview (e.g. tachyon guardian), shift-right-click on it to add it to the attack queue, click again to select the next tachyon guardian, etc. As it is, after clicking on the icon, my ships are deselected, so I can't give the order to attack. I have to go back and select them, but that might require moving the camera away from the tachyon guardian again if they're not in a control group...

Clicking an enemy or ally icon in the overview should just move the camera and shouldn't deselect your ships.

Actually it turns out that this is yet another instance of 0002866, 0011811, and others. Clicking an icon in the overview acts as though you'd clicked underneath it. E.g. if there's a turret under the icon, clicking the icon selects the turret.

I've implemented an experimental version of this in a mod: http://www.arcengames.com/forums/index.php/topic,16085.0.html

Hopefully the devs will eventually include it in the base game.
