Just a suggestion to have an HQ feature to remove(toggle on/off) all unit except those that belong to the highlighted HQ. The change color feature for HQ has helped, but I still find it difficult at times to tell where all the units belonging to an HQ are on the map. Because of the bonuses for being in the 8 hex range this is something to always consider.

What do others think of this feature?

Also, does anybody know what the effect is of having a Corp HQ more than 8 hexes from it's parent Army HQ and also from Army to AG and OKH?

Thanks

I just started the invasion of France and Belgium and was wondering the same thing about how the distanced between the Corp, Army and OKH HQs affected supply and integrity. I'm keeping the Corp HQ's close to their divisions but don't know for sure how close I need to keep them to the bosses up the command hierarchy.

I had suggested highlighting the hexes where the selected HQ's units are located. At least then you would know to look in a stack to find a stray regiment. Maybe use bright yellow or green for the hexes where the selected HQ's subordinate units reside. The OP's method would sure work too; it may very well be an even better way.

I've been opening the OOB tab and memorizing which ones are subordinate.

I don't need to do it too often, but sometimes. I find it more problematic when attempting to find a Corp's Engineer unit (for example) that's buried under a stack somewhere. When I click on it's unit in the OOB tab it only moves the map so that it's somewhere possibly in view but doesn't highlight it, which would help.
