another good idea. though it might take a creative artist to come up with different icons for each terrain type.
If it´s not possible to get an artist, I would be happy with a simple indication (a text) passing the cursor over the current symbol. Yes, small good ideas make a game greater!
Maybe a color code would work. Instead of a mini picture for light woods, heavy woods, light building, heavy building, rubble, trench, etc., you could assign each terrain type a cover %. Then assign a color code for each value range? 0-10 Black, 11-35 red, 36-65 yellow, 66-100 green perhaps? Instead of having to draw an image for each terrain type, a colored circle (like a traffic light) would suffice? Just an idea, and it would make it easier to do, hopefully.
