For the fleetships, rather than having multiple ships per subsquad, I could switch those to all being a single ship per subsquad, which would let us draw them bigger but in the same amount of space.  That might help?  Not sure how interested folks are in this.
Have ideas or bug reports for one of our games?  Mantis for Suggestions and Bug Reports. Thanks for helping to make our games better!

HeartHunter, yeah some things have their icons being higher than others - it's so important or bigger things like a Command Station or Starship stand out above less important/smaller things. It actually was like this before, but I think it's just more prominent now.

As for the single ship per subsquad, I think that would help, but see how it goes. Not many people respond to things like this I find.
"Puffin already broke it."

"Amazing."

Nope!

Though that...is a point. Putting the icon way up like that is...misleading as to where the unit is in a way.
