Add Automatic/Manual/Disabled setting for target line display #16893
#16616 and followup discussion in the last couple of days in IRC and discord have raised the point that the current target line behaviour is really not ideal. It would be a shame and wasted opportunity if we don't at least try to improve this as part of our queued-order overhaul in the upcoming release.
This PR replaces the "Display Target Lines" checkbox in the settings menu with a dropdown that has three options:
The final commit switches the default behaviour from the TS/RA2 style to the C&C3 style, which dramatically cleans up the UI when commanding unit blobs. The order flash remains to provide visual confirmation of orders, and players who prefer the feedback of the lines are still able to switch back to Automatic in the settings. The so-far limited feedback from IRC and Discord has been inconclusive, so I would like to get this in to the first playtest to trigger wider discussion.
