Quick suggestion re: Autopilot destinations

When you select a Task Force, the flag indicating the autopilot destination should somehow (perhaps by being brighter or moving up/down or perhaps a different color) indicate which Task Force is associated with that particular Destination Flag.

Currently, we have no way of knowing (other than laboriously looking up hex numbers) which flag is associated with a Task Force.

What would be really great is a small color-coded area in the upper right of each Task Force counter that would correspond with color of it's auto-pilot destination flag. That way, you wouldn't even have to select each task force to see where each one is going.

Norammly if you mouse over the hex, there is tooltip telling you which TF has heading to that flag hex.

Do you see it ?

Tooltip is not showing for me.  All I get is what you see here in this video:

I'm sorry, I see nothing around the flags that indicates what TF is selected/associated with which flag.  If there is something, it's so subtle that I certainly can't easily see it. - even after rewatching the video several times.  As an end-user, it's still a problem, and I guarantee that buyers will complain about it.

 This is a UI element that should be really obvious (where TF's are going).  Right now, it's not.

on the yello wflag there is tooltip (on mouse over) expliciting which TF has autopilot to this hex

For instance:

" Autopilot TG 16.2 A TF will autopilo will automatically moves towards irs programmed destination at the end of the TURN"

What would you change ?

Kondor is right, the graphic should be more visible
