Ability to plot out lines of advance on the map that are colour-coded to the unit. For instance, if my plan is for X Corps to advance along the lines of Tiel to Tricht before wheeling North to Utrect, it would be nice if you could visually draw that line of advance on the map (with "snap-to" plotting for each city) by first clicking on the HQ unit, then a clicking a "lines of advance" draw button, followed by clicking on each city to form a visible, color-coded line (color inherited from the HQ) on the map.
The benefit of this feature would to be quickly see at a glance where your corps/division are going, whether they're on track or whether they're getting scattered, and where adjustments need to be made in case of roadblocks, supporting/flanking, etc.
This, I think, would be a universally welcome feature for all semi/complex wargames, especially on the larger scale maps with many HQs and units. And would be fairly accurate as any staff/commander would use grease pencils on a laminated map of the area to do the same sort of thing.
