well thanks for the answers. I knew all that, it just seems there is a lot of potential there to keep better tabs on things.
For instance, when I have a fleet tabbed, I don't need to see the fleet phasing to other planets in a seperate section on the empire tree. Just put it in Planet A or Planet B.
I like to be able to click on planets and see exactly where I have non-fleeted ships, like a colony frigate. So if I have to see that there is construction frigates, hangar defenses, repair pads, etc. etc. it may take my eyes an extra few seconds to pick out the icon for the colony frigate. I want to unpin ALLLLL of that other crap that I have no need to click on from the empire tree. Do people really click on the empire tree to see their repair stations?
So, are there any customizable files that I can change a value from a 0 to a 1 to let me unpin some things??
Thanks for the answers.
