I think games like WITW could do with small animations like in WITP:AE. Those are very, very nice and add a lot to the immersion. Some eye candy (and sounds) are really helpful. What I would also like for grognard games are some little screens or maybe even historic footage for say capturing Stalingrad, Moscow, Berlin, breaching the west wall, the first Russian winter arriving, etc.
I have no idea how many resources this will take up though.
But little men digging on the map are not my cup of tea either.
What I would wish for: Every strategy game should have the possibility to choose between NATO symbols and icons. While I for the life of me cannot understand why anyone would want icons, I have a couple of friends who flat-out refuse to play anything with NATO symbols. They would surely enjoy the underlying game, but the will not give it a go without icons. Driving me nuts.
there in luck then, as it's already been done
one holy point been modernized for none war gamers to start to be able to even understand what units even mean, so thanks for the mod and share / post, hope others try it and post reviews so other none or new war gamers don't feel unwelcome either and won't give it a go...
as with all new stuff, not everyone like it, so it's an option, you can use them, or you don't have to, it's a choice, like better graphics, it's only a choice if it's offered, when it's not, you don't have the option to turn it on and use it or not...
that's my point, atmosphere, not 20 odd pages of stats, or you will bore some to death and never give it a go in the first place, as engine is great, but wont suit every one, a few tweaks and it could, first ones been done, now lets wait for the others
