For those of you who don't have Generic Mod Enabler here is a link to it: https://www.dropbox.com/s/txbf697a4w62pqn/jsgme_setup.exe?dl=0

I find it very useful to install and uninstall mods without overwriting original files or making backups.

From JonSoft.txt: "This software may be distributed freely on online services, bulletin boards, or other electronic media as long as the files are distributed in their entirety."

The US and Italian color schemes are way too close together and therefore confusing.

Just tried IronX's new rain graphics. Looks very nice in my opinion.

Does this look better?

You can get the files here: Darker US counters

Just unzip them to Bitmaps/Major_03

Having realized that I omitted the transit (Altantic<>Pacific) hexes, I've fixed them and improved a few other hex highlights.

The mod has also been updated with the latest changes v1.7 (see first post).

Wonderful mod.

I get an error with the new tile highlight on the middle zoom. Works on the closest zoom but when i have a unit highlighted and zoom out to the middle zoom the error happens also.

Yeah, sorry, Budd. It was the zoom version of the file that wasn't the correct size (they are odd sizes). Hopefully, it should be all fixed now in V.1.7.

Very good. Not too conspicious to colour-clatter the board, but enough to differentiate at a glance.

With the original map, an explored dark blue sea hex become light blue, it's very effective for searching submarines. I noticed that is was not the case, or less efficient, with the Welk mod. Is it fixed ?

Yes, I think so.

I assume this is the submarine's ZoC? It could, perhaps, be better represented.

What do the green strength numbers indicate, in some screens I also see yellow?

I think the green means it's reinforceable and the yellow means an overstrength unit.

Please gift Iron Cross a copy of War in Europe, hint hint

We need some of his magic dust in the ETO.

Took a peek, but I'd rather not reverse engineer his great work!

Samething for me, possible that the server is too busy, the mod has too much success.
