Quick nooby question: is it possible to make a hotkey for 'select all upgrading mexes', or would you need a mod for that? I tried and it crashed the game :D I did get 'select all idle mexes' working though, which just changes +idle to +upgrading...^^

Why not just use "Select all mass extractors?"

If you are wondering about finding a way to quickly pause any upgrading extractor, just press whatever you have bound to "pause" and this will get the trick done. Even if you pause an extractor that is not upgrading, it won't disable it's income - true story.

Yea, that's what I've been using for now... But it'd be better to be able to select the upgrading ones because I can see where they are, how many, etc. Obviously, this is mainly useful for large maps with tons of mex/reclaim, not so much in teamgames.

the ui mod i made that you don't like because it's borderline cheating, that contains a bunch of enhancements to make the ui more awesome

Why exactly do you think it's borderline cheating, Morax? It's not like eco manager where it balances your eco for you (which IS cheating imho).. It just has helpful enhancements, like showing which engies / facs are idle, etc. Now go download it :D
