It now says "All units of this type are friendly" if you attempt to hack while you own all of them. Unsure what it will do if you only own half of them, since I don't have a way to test that at the moment.

For this, that solution is good, but if you already own them all then it should just not show this hack, too, I'd say.

In general for hacks that are irrelevant because they only apply to stuff you already own, decluttering the hacking screen is a good thing. I don't think anyone will be confused looking for the ability to hack their own stuff.

I agree completely. I'm looking at various methods to add that functionality in, but I ran out of time the past few days.

All good!

* Upgraded the hacking code framework a bit, so that it's now possible for it to not just say "I can or can't be hacked," but also "show me or don't show me in the list if I can't be hacked."
** A lot of things that no longer make any sense contextually, like trying to hack something that you control now, should just be hidden and now are.
** Other things like "did I already hack that dark spire thing?" should show a reminder of "yes, you already did, so you can't again," since that's relevant info.
** And of course this doesn't get into things like "you can't afford to hack it right now" or whatever other problems like a missing hacker of the moment. Those things always show, but just redded-out, still.
** Note that this isn't tested yet, so if there are problems please let us know.
