Our own war map

Postby lencollard on Thu Jun 30, 2022 6:02 am

.Concise description:
    1) Develop a war map
    2) Change default for selection lists to SELECT
  • xxxxxxx

Specifics/Details:
    1) We should have the capability to develop a war map. In a fogged game, we can deduce the number of troops in some of the fogged territories. If we could enter that number, then see the resulting map it would help us visualize the enemy formation.

    In subsequent rounds, the war map would be a combination of the actual map and our input overrides for past fogged areas. Our past input overrides would be ignored for all unfogged areas.

    Saving snapshots of war maps, with the Analyze capability would also help. Having alternative war maps would help, but that could be a future feature.

    2) For selection lists, almost all have a default of the first choice alphabetically. This is a distraction that can lead to wrong choices. New players think the computer is recommending a new move. Players in a hurry may just go with it. It is difficult when a player is clicking on the board for reinforcements.

  • xxxxxxx

How this will benefit the site and/or other comments:
    1) It will more closely simulate the real world where military leaders can posit where the enemy is and see maps including that information.
    2) It can reduce the number of player mistakes and frustrations.

I think you should split your suggestions into two.

1 has some potential as field notes / army intelligence

2 has been discussed before and shut down

Then don't play fog. Or make notes. Or use your brain and remember where things are.

You already get the crutch that is a snapshot, now you want another one? Blah.

Don't get me started on snap shots...worst development in the history of this site. Makes it too easy for lazy/bad players.

I didn't realize you felt that way. We are kindred spirits.

Real military commanders likely have dioramas where they can place and move simulated troops. That way they can show and discuss options with their counterparts. As they say, "A picture is worth a 1000 words."

If you want to exclude such a feature from a 1v1, I can understand that. But it sure would improve communications with fellow team members to discuss general strategies. It would be most helpful if it were live and each team member could make adjustments, and show expected impacts from proposed attacks. :idea:

Like the map used by Robb Start in the hit TV series 'Game of Thrones' starring the delightful Mark Addy?
