This is something Larry brought up and I think it's a good idea. Such a good idea I thought it should be expanded upon.
You can't tell which units have simply used all their mp and which ones are embarked for rail movement. The more units present in the scenario the more head scratching that causes. If you can single out dismounted units in the UI then what's the problem with embarked for rail movement?
I guess going to the extreme you could even do something like: embarked/dismounted or embarked or mobile/dismounted or tactical/dismounted or local/dismounted. You could designate which are Dug in, Entrenched or Fortified. Local Reserve, Tactical Reserve. Why just use the Dismounted column in the OOB for that single category?
Or just use letters: E/D, E, M/D, T/D, L/D, D, L, T, M. Again, if the game can go through the OOB and tell you if a unit is dismounted then it can just as easily go through the OOB and give you the status of every unit. I know no one wants to have to mess with the UI and I sympathize with them. This UI output stuff is a pain. But Larry does have a good point.
