I uploaded a similar mod for WITE a while back in which I tweaked the look of the unit counters for that game. After starting playing this one my eyes immediately started to bleed after seeing the counters in their original form, so I updated these ones as well in the same fashion (note: possible hyperbole).

Basically I hand fixed the 'XX' etc at the top of the counter to be much clearer, tweaked the colours of the tabs at the corner of the counters, swapped the morale/etc tab to the other side so that it wouldn't be blocked by the fortification level, and completely redid all of the max zoom out level counters (there was nothing salvageable in the originals - they are terrible). I also made America blue. Because America should be blue damn it. France gets purple.

See my original post for instructions on installing with the JSGME tool if you want to try out the mod without overwriting any original files. That way if you hate it you can get rid of it with a click of a button.

Note that all zoom levels except the farthest zoomed in are updated. I didn't update that one because I have never used it and can't imagine that anyone else has either.

Here's the link:

Ultimately this is a pretty tiny little mod, though it did take me an embarrassingly long time to get it right. It is so absurdly difficult to make the counters look positively unique for all countries at the farthest zoom level. I hope at least somebody finds some use of this.
