      Description

      It becomes extremely cumbersome to manage battles with fleets of adequate sizes because the ship information (e.g. captain name, passengers, crew) creates a mess at trying to deal with actual ships.

      Of course, the Owned Ships list can be used, but it would be nice to be able to see visually if your commands are doing what you expect.

      You can see in the attachment how messy it becomes with 5 wings of 13 ships (a few have died in the capture, so between 11-13 ships per wing). There are some XEN ships and an entire XEN Defense Platform, but you would never know it by looking at the screen because of the information spam.

      I am zoomed in maximum because otherwise there is even less differentiation - maybe allow further zoom would help if toggling the information off is not possible?

        OP here:
        I took a few days off from playing the game because I kept getting upset over this "issue", plus the inability to cause even 1% of damage to Kha'ak Installations after hours of battle using carriers, destroyers, and lots of smaller ships (through constant spawning of Kha'ak ships from nowhere), and the game targeting things on menus half a screen away from where I clicked with my mouse, etc.

        Anyway, I found out that my problem with the map showing ship information is that I thought clicking what looked like a power button on the "Filter Settings" tab turned off all filters that was possible to be turned off, but after loading the game up today and just digging through every menu and item and clicking on everything, everywhere, I found that I can remove the white lines and information by clearing a box beside of "Crew Information", inside "Filter Settings", under "Other Filters", under "Ship Properties".

        Figured I should tag this issue as "closed" - so far as my ability to do so goes.
