When issuing move orders sometimes i accidentally use Group move when i thought it was just Move order. Maybe either color code the move arrow eg. red for group and white for single unit and blue for Strategic move or have a graphic M/G/S on the move arrow itself. As moving things by mistake costs AP.

I like the idea of putting a visual cue on the move arrow. Simple and effective.

Is that a good idea or what! My idea was to literally have the pointer change depending on mode. A tiny bulldozer for construct road, etc etc but your idea is more doable and works just as well. Brilliant. Make it so.

Eddy! I love your art work, but please, dear God, no corny cartoon pointers.

It starts with an innocent bulldozer, and then suddenly you are adding animations.

Hold on now! I already admitted Daza's idea was much better! :)

How often do you see someone admit defeat on the internet? :)
