Well, if we're gonna do that, I'd like it if there was a center-on-notification or center-on-selection button, instead of the game auto-centering when you receive the note or select a ship from the fleet list on the right.
Sometimes, it's like, okay...I want to move my fleet toward this battle, I need my biggest fleet, (ah-ha) there it is on the list, clickeroo...
...and now I can't find the battle anymore because the view is now on the ship and the map is huge, and if I re-click on the battle somehow, I lose the fleet I was trying to send...et cetera, et cetera, drek cetera. Lather, rinse, repeat.
If I could explicitly tell the game where I whether I want the camera to move around instead of it being done for me, I'd be the happiest of campers.
