Is there a way to change how the initial map view is displayed? There are three views I would like to alter:
1) at scenario start-up
2) at beginning of #1 force turn
3) at beginning of #2 force turn

Thanks for any help!

For #1 the start position may have something to do with the last unit deployed. FitE2 starts me way up north in some location I may never need to be. I've never bothered to test this myself, it's just a theory.

and each turn see the same come back

Yeah, I was just about to say something like that. My games usually
start with the map centered on the current unit. You guys see something
different?

Frozen Steppes starts with Voronezh Front HQ which is not the first unit in the Soviet OOB.

You could try making a dummy unit and see how it works.
