Better Next Target is an experimental mod that aims to provide context-based target selection. Instead of cycling through targets sorted by load order, this program selects the target closest to the center of the screen.
The mod automatically moves the mouse to click on the target box when the appropriate key is pressed.

Hope Jundroo will add something like this, next/previous target only works when you have like 3 enemies, and moving the mouse to click the screen isn't going to cut it.
- The mod controls should be set different from the in-game target selection controls, to prevent selection conflicts.
- Will conflict with UI/cockpit elements and Mouse As Joystick mode.
- Won't work on 1.10 since UI is built differently.
- Won't work in VR since Jundroo appears to be planning on having separate flat-screen and VR components for UI. May break in 1.12, even in flat-screen mode.

The controls can be customized by changing the contents of the respective file in the directory

KeyCode in each line, without the
KeyCode prefix. There can be one or more keys that must be pressed. Either the keyboard or joystick control can be used to call a target change.
