System info:
- Win10
- Revision 8796
- r2531

Reproduce steps:
1. Set NO_REMOVE_RANDOM_SECTOR_ITEMS = FALSE in .ini
2. Start/load any game with enemies in sector with items
3. Load tactical in enemy sector with items (without player's mercs)
4. Go to Strategic view.
5. Repeat 3-4 steps.
(save and .ini were unable to upload via forum (0KB size): https://safenote.co/r/5f2575b313c436@82274681)

Actual behavior:
Items in the sector vanishes randomly until they're fully disappear (the more you load tactical - the more items will vanish).
One could possibly abuse this to identify sectors with enemies

Expected behavior:
Loading tactical shouldn't affect items in that sector. Instead, make items to vanish when player merc is actually entered the sector (like, he got info on what's going on there in a first place).

You shouldn't be able to enter tactical view in any sector that doesn't have mercs in it. Unfortunately this isn't the case and needs to be fixed.

I don't know who removed the existing check for alive mercs in a sector and why, but I re-enabled it in r8875. It makes no sense to enter a sector with nobody actually there.
