Suggestions for MapView

    Okay, fixed that.  But they don’t auto stack anymore. (as in if I drop it right on top of the other, literally lining it up so that there is no exposed border from the other unit)

    This another ID10T error on my part?

  • I fixed that in build 18 (the overlap detection code needed to be adjusted for such small units).

    I’m re-uploading the module and build 18 just to make sure I didn’t do someting stupid (upload the wrong file perhaps).

    Does anyone else have the merge-drop problem?  (Mine seems to work OK).


  • By the way, any comments on the Russian Infantry?  I’m thinking about applying that effect to all the unit of each country.


  • 2007 AAR League

    I like the Russian infantry, with the black outline inside the white outline. That should show up on ANY background.

    The only unit I feel really strongly should be changed is the artillery - it just looks dorky.

    Can we swap colors for Russia and Japan?  Kinda confusing to see Japan as Red.

    Actually, Japan as dark yellow would be better, and Russia as Red.

    Anybody else notice Ver 3 is opening a lot faster then Ver 2?  Or is it just because I hate it less now I have transferred less negative energy on the program???

  • My actual Japanese pieces are bright red for AA Pacific.  I assume they are the same color for AA Revised?

    As for the dark-yellow, my only concern was that the color may be too close to the Japanese home territories.  I’ll try it out with the double-outline style though and see how it looks.

    And I’m glad to see you noticed the speed up 🙂

    In my games the Russians are Red, the Americans Green, the Germans Grey, the British brown and the Japanese dark yellow.

    Perhaps you can lighten the japanese territory colors and darken their pieces to an amber color?

    It’s just a suggestion.  Many of us, I’m sure, are used to the Russians being red/reddish-brown.

    Also, you can feel free to lower the topographical detail on the map if you wish.  It’s neat, but if you think it might help with speed or something, then it’s not going to make me cry if you take it out. 😛

    And finally, any way you can put in an icon to list currently controlled territory values?

  • Quick question, are you still having that problem with the drag-drop apperance?

    Nope.  Deleted version 2 and it went away (after reinstalling version 2.)
