Fog markers

Postby drunkmonkey on Tue Jul 12, 2011 7:45 am

Thought about this as I was going through old snapshots in a foggy game to determine where players were. It would be neat if there was a tool to somehow assign a color to foggy regions on the map, to mark where you think/know players are. Maybe a colored box could display around the question mark. It would be more efficient than scanning through tons of snapshots & chat notes, and make things much easier on "visual" people.

Wicked idea - kind of 'fog prediction' so you can enter a colour and maybe even tentative army numbers (or you may fel the numbers are certain in some games).

It would be like "minesweeper" in Windows where you can assign a ? Mark or a flag to identify the regions.

Yes I would love this, very hard to keep track of some games, especially if you have a series of the same map, its hard to distinguish them apart sometimes and remember without goign through each snapshot
