    Really appreciate the latest changes to the unit selection window. You took my suggestions to the next level!

    Unit Selection Box overhaul, suggestions inside

    Multi unit selection window overlaps with HUD skin and just generally looks very empty and small. With Patch 7.00 the size of a single unit window (without HUD collisions) was reduced by 38%!

    On top of that the top left and top right unit windows overlap with HUD skins:

    Here's a comparison between the old unit selection box and the new one with a few suggestions.
    multiunit_HUD.jpg
    Introduce dynamic sized windows, if you only select less then 5 units they are displayed in a bigger 2x2 arrangement which fulls up the old space used for 3x3=9 units.
    Or use up unneeded space from the talent tree etc. the old HUD replaced the stat screen window with the unit selection window after all. I think no one needs to see the talent tree at all times when he's controlling multiple units.
    The current state is not acceptable, the units are too small and the HUD skin overlaps are straight up bad and unnecessary.
