The NPCs in an enemy group are now sorted alphabetically, like everything else in the object list. This can make it extremely difficult to determine who the higher ranked actors are in ground groups, and to determine which ships will spawn in space groups. Before these were based on the order in the actor list, which I assume is still the case, but now when we rename the NPCs we can't see that.

I strongly recommend going back to the old system where there was a separate field for the name of the actor in the list, and the name displayed in the game, and what's more the actor lists inside a group should not be sorted alphabetically.

Additionally, giving more information about the properties of the actor (enemy rank on the ground, etc) would be very helpful.
