Easy mouse targeting widget

Post by Godde »

This widget makes it easier to target a single stationary or moving unit with Attack, Reclaim, Capture, Repair and Load commands.

It overrides the default area commands when the mouse cursor is on top of the same unit during both mouse button press and mouse button release.

Flying units in particular are hard to target with the default area commands. Trying to repair a gunship is a particularly frustrating as any movement of the mouse will result in an area command which by default will be a ground level sphere which most likely will be out of range of the intended target.

There might be some conflicts with other widgets. So feel free to tell me any about any bugs and feel free to review the code. :)

Well this isn't bug hunting per se. In my humble opinion it is an improvement over the default mouse behavior however.
For discussion see topic Targeting, precision and ambiguity when using the mouse.
