I haven't found the unoccupied planet list that helpful, either. I would want tabs to separate out extreme planets that clutter up the list before I have the techs needed to do anything.
Sort lists everywhere there is a list, please. Keep it as consistent and helpful as possible, please. On a large map, any list that doesn't sort is going to a pain. Rally points is just one very obvious place it would help.
Still having the unrevealed fog bug as well. Do devs need save games or something on this from us? Any feedback at all?
