Amen. None of them I have encountered outside of the military can think, write, research, or make a decision worth a damn. They would have died on their first day under fire back when I was a young man.

Now, now, you old guys, especially pre-military, need to relax and understand it is not always about intelligence.

I'm one of you (61 with 13 years USAF, 25 IBM), and I prefer NATO symbols, more informative, but I also realize folks like eye candy and some of these unit counter ideas are, well, pretty.

TOAW units "usually" consists of multiple types of equipment, so the NATO symbols make more sense to me. But the joy of TOAW is everyone can design their scenario as they please, and if they change to non-NATO counters, its cool. Awesome actually, because its a new scenario to play!

They are not talking about NATO symbols yes/NAYO symbols not, but to the some guys tendency to ask or complain for things that demand a simple google search or reading the manual.

Well oops, my bad. But it is not hard why folks like to complain or ask before putting in any effort, no? Spoon fed or just an impatient lot!

Okay, I stand corrected, appologies to my fellow old gents, back to gaming...

Here is a draft of "non Nato", mainly German WW2 equipment (I think it could had been suitable to have 2 versions of counters SIDE A, SIDE B. it would give more flexibility for modding)
Many blanks remains.. on going work

Any comment is welcome

wonderful counters Sipres!

Is there a possibility to edit the 3D counters and change the color for example? I dont recognize the format name.
And could they be mapped on the 2D map instead of 3D map?

Just one thing, peeps... be aware of those icons who are hard-coded to have special capabilities; Bob posted a screenshot which of those icons have the special capabilities... that's important.

Klink, Oberst

Thanks for advice heer Oberst,

I try to keep same logic as the vanilla NATO file so should be OK, its sometimes difficult due to the few pixels available.
I remember to have seen the screenshot you mention but I cant find it anymore.

I will post latest version later this evening.

I usually prefer NATO symbols, since most games using figurative icons just feel childish, but those are really well designed. Very good job.

Any updates on these?

I think they won't, perhaps, work well with the smaller sized counters, but that doesn't matter (at least for me). It can bring on a nice effect to have NATO symbols on a more strategical view (zoomed out) and those on a more tactical plane (zoomed in). I was willing to experiment with it, but as far as I can see, most counters aren't done yet.
