I have looked in the manual but cannot find an answer. On the unit marker there is between 1 and 4 hash marks on the left side of the unit symbol? What do those represent?

Also, there is a often a black or white "ball" to the right of the symbol? What does that mean?

Thanks.

Mike

Yeah it's a simple enough question. You are apparently using Jison's counter mod that came with his excellent map.

The hash marks play the same role as the colored triangles in the upper corners of the original map counters. They display the various soft factors of the unit. Four hashmarks equals good fuel, morale, experience, etc. One hashmark or none means bad. This role was played by the colors green to red with the original counters. That's why the hashmarks aren't in the manual.

The white ball means a unit hasn't moved yet. A black one means it has moved some. If it's gone you've used up all the unit's MP for that turn.( I think)

Jison's counters on the left. The original game counters on the right. My only issue with the hashmarks is that they can be tough to read sometimes on a dark colored counter.

Shellshock,

thank you so much you! Yes, I am using Jison's mod. Love the map, and the game. Of course that would explain why I did not find it in the manual.

Very nice of you to clear this up for me

Mike

Hi Guys,
Is it possible to get hold of the map anywhere, the original link seems to be down.
