I feel that icon being removed when you mouse over is confusing design. People tend to think of icons like any other interface item — one typically wouldn't expect for example a button to disappear when it is hovered over. If you want an icon to appear on an object while it is in view, then hovering over it should not cause it to disappear. Instead I recommend altering the icon with a new glow or border or different border color to indicate you are now hovering over it.

If you really want to remove it so the player can see behind the icon, perhaps you can at least keep the border?

    Yes, that is something that bugs me as well. Will be fixed in some way. Thanks!
