I'm having an odd problem. I'm new to the game, and since this isn't being reported all over the web, I'm going to assume it's something I'm doing. I find that, quite often, ships can't be selected. Left clicking on them does nothing. If I move the mouse over them, I still get the normal text in the bottom left hand corner. I can still left click and hold to draw a box, but box select doesn't work either.
Keep in mind this isn't all the time, just sometimes. And it's an all or nothing situation. Either all the ships can be selected or none of them can. It's happened on games I've restored from a save file, it has happened on brand new games I just started. I can't find any sort of pattern here. Other commands work. for instance, I can hit P to pause. (And then curse at the game a bit.)
Does anyone have any idea what is causing this? I did a bit of Googling and haven't been able to find anyone else at all complaining of this problem. Therefore, I'm assuming it's something specific to me. I really want to like the game because it seems awesome, but this issue is getting extremely frustrating.
Thanks for any help.
Edited to add: If it makes a difference, I'm playing on the Steam version with all the expansions installed.
