Unit Values Display Type: This sets whether numerals, graphic bars, or neither will be
displayed on the unit counters reflecting the combat strength and/or movement points of the
unit. This can be set to Numeral, Graphic or None by selecting the box to the right of the “Unit
Values Display Type” text. Numerals will only be displayed at the Max-In and In (levels 1-2)
zoom levels, and graphic bars will only be displayed at the Max-In, In and Medium zoom levels
(levels 1-3). The default setting is Numeral.
Unit Counter Info: This sets the specific information displayed on the unit counters regarding
a unit’s combat strength and movement points. This preference works together with the
Unit Values Display Type preference. This preference can be set to CV-Move or COMBAT by
selecting the box to the right of the “Unit Counter Info” text. If CV-Move is selected while the
Unit Values Display is set to Numeral, then the counters will display the CV and Movement
Points remaining. If CV-Move is selected while the Unit Values Display is set to Graphic, then
the counters will display a graphic bar indicating the movement points remaining. If COMBAT
is selected while the Unit Values Display is set to Numeral, then the counters will display the CV
value followed by another CV value that accounts for the fortification defense modifier (15.3).
If COMBAT is selected while the Unit Values Display is set to Graphic, then the counters will
display a graphic bar indicating the CV value. In all cases the CV displayed is the total for all
units in the hex and the MPs displayed is the most MPs remaining by any unit in the hex. The
default setting is CV-Move. Note: Regardless of the Unit Counter Info setting, enemy units will
always be displayed on the map as if the setting is COMBAT; i.e. with the CV value followed by
the CV value with the fortification defense modifier.
Thank you! I read the manual by skipping around and missed this important section. I'm playing with the setting now, but I have to admit it's still a little confusing. Trying to figure out what setting works best for me...
