Summary0024656: Ability to target specific enemies by right clicking on their icons on the sidebar
DescriptionSometimes there are enemies that I want to focus fire because they are more dangerous than all the others, for example those with zombification / paralysis / tractors.
Or if there's a counterattack incoming I want to focus fire all the Guard Posts.
Right now to do so I have to move the camera on each enemy and manually right click on each of them while holding shift.
It would be nice if you could instead just right click their portrait on the sidebar while you have some of your combat ships selected.
The Shift key should also work and should allow you to queue multiple attacks.
One possible way to implement this is to queue multiple attack orders, so it's as if you are holding the shift key and right clicking manually on each enemy ship.
Maybe the game could also sort them from closest to furthest, the origin should probably be the center of mass of all your selected ships and then it could just use the squared distance and a sorted list to find the correct order.
TagsNo tags attached.

Stealthed units should probably be skipped, otherwise you could use this to find their position.
