yeah, it is definetly low-priority, just wanted to make a suggestion since this is bugging me.

when your starmap is flattened, its easy to see who holds what SOV based on the tiles, but i like the unflattened map, but when you unflatten it, tiles become useless.

what if when you unflatten it, you get the option to enable a "nebula/sphere of influence" effect, where it basically creates a bubble colored the same as their corresponding tile around all the stars they own, that way in the unflattened map you can see little spheres around stars that are owned by small aliances or are all by themselves and not near another system owned by the same holder, and larger groups of SOV would have a big "blob" kind of sphere around the territory they own.
the idea is pretty rough and suggested how i put it would probably look a little fugly, so it would probably need soem refining, but i think it would look cool.

also, the option to ahve a 3D map in CQ that works the same as the star-map would be cool.

and on to a function, since it is tedious to go through all the tabs and lists to find a system with what your looking for, why isnt their a search bar above those lists so you can just type in whatever your looking for (certain SOV, certain service, etc) instead of hunting for it?
also would be nice if i could enable any 2 search functions at once on there, like say, if i wanted to search what systems have a cloning service, but only insystems i've previoulsy visited, or only in systems that have a another service as well, i think it would be convenient.

there is no TL;DR for this post, so either read it or don't bother commenting.

I actually wouldn't mind having a second filter set for the maps, but I don't want to have to go and check and uncheck boxes when I want to switch filters. I would suggest a pop-out menu where you can select a second filter and it simply overlays that on the main map, and there's a "None" option in the second one too so you don't have to have two filters.

And so long as you don't mess with my flattened map, I have no issue with tweaking the unflattened map. I'm guessing you mean something like translucent metaballs around the systems to show sov?
