I have implemented an event action system where you can set the game to pause or cancel fast time compression automatically when a specific event occurs.

A new special event is 'enemy ground unit spotted'. It triggers only once every 5 minutes within a radius of 500 meters, so the player won't be flooded with the messages of this type.

Excellent idea and I wish more games had this.

It will be in the next patch, but I don't know when it will come out. Probably this or next month.

Perhaps there should be something special to make sure that the player notices that the game has been paused automatically. How about using the 'ting' sound effect, currently used in the round mode?

I don't see why not. Good idea.

Also a message in the log with the reason, for example:

Auto-Pause: enemy ground unit spotted

Auto-Pause: Objective captured
