togglable map of connecting territories only

Postby thegurumonkey on Fri Apr 13, 2018 8:30 am

Hi,
We've all had it where our strategy hinges on a dubious assumption about whether certain territories are connected.
It would be GREAT to have a (very basic) schematic map that you could toggle on to answer any such questions. It need not be beautiful, just functional.

For example, the below is a schematic of the 'First Nations of the Americas' map

Photobucket no longer supports hotlinking. You'll have to rehost that at imageshack or imgur.

In any case, if you're using panel mode, you have a text map available that shows exactly what you're asking for, a list of all the links.

Go to the Settings tab, and change your Text Map to Extended.

Once you do that, in your map tab you will have a detailed list of what territory links to what, like this:

Text map has three levels: Off, Standard (which shows limited information) and Extended (which shows a lot more information.) You can also set settings differently for different maps, so that (for instance) you use Standard on most maps but Extended on the trickier maps.

amazing. never knew all of that was available! it's not quite as intuitive as the thing i was proposing (for seeing defensible areas and bottlenecks) but MUCH better than stabbing in the dark.
Much appreciated. SOLVED!

On mobile device this doesn't work properly, as soon as you trigger the option "Text map", the full map inspect comes ON, you can't reset is to default, the OFF option is not working, admin was made aware few years ago and still not a fix.

Default, Off, Standard, Extended appears as you touch the option button but not a single change within any option, one touch and map inspect turn ON and don't reset.
