Gosh, running out of things to niggle at The focus changes will be a real help.
Haha, I guess that's a good sign!
1. The number keys should remain control group selection even on the galaxy screen. I don't know about anybody else but I often want to move ships after seeing this map and having to hop back out and in this screen is a pain and I often end up with a priority number by mistake. As button exist for the priorities, and assigning them is not a high priority activity, keeping the shortcut for control groups (which have no other means of being selected on this screen) would be better IMO.
Hmm... I'm potentially open to this, but I'm curious what other people think. I actually do use the hotkeys for the priority setting, but I could do otherwise if I had to. Bear in mind that if I were to make this change, it would only be able to select ships at your current planet (or it would switch planets, as it currently does). The game does not support having ships from multiple planets selected at once. So, to me, it seems a little awkward. I think, for things like this where it's a judgement call and I'm not confident in my opinion on it, I'm going to start opening polls to let the community vote and decide. I don't have any other solid way of gathering player preference data. This is going on my maybe list, and I'll open a poll about it.
2. I'd like to be able to find science ships in addition to the other ship types you have made discoverable on the galaxy map, I sometimes lose track of where I moved them to once they're in a 2000 territory.
Awesome, good point, and I'll add that. Do bear in mind that with the teal science labs button at the bottom of the planetary view screen, you can easily locate them there. But that requires leaving the galaxy map, obviously. I'm totally with you on adding this one, though, and it's now on my list for soon.
