    Stop capturing the mouse when the game window is in the background

    AS the title says, I'd love it if the game would stop capturing my mouse when the window is backrounded.
    This would let us keep the game running while doing some other stuff (in case we want to wait something out without sleep).

    Please let me know if im making too many threads, I dont wanna be annoying :S

    No worries

    Yes, this is actually already on my to-do list, along with an option to pause the sim when tabbed out
