Hi everyone-- I've made a new code framework called NASH which you can use to draw pictures on the fly and display them in Special Messages.

DOWNLOAD LINK: https://github.com/musurca/NASH/releases/download/v1.0/NASH_v1.0.zip

Now your scenario can display charts, graphs, sonar spectrum analysis, ocean temperature visualizations-- whatever you want, really!

Installation is very easy: just open your scenario, paste the contents of nash_min.lua into the Lua Script Editor, and click RUN. NASH will install itself and you'll be ready to use it. The release also comes with a full API reference in PDF.

Full source code and more documentation is available on Github. Hope someone finds it useful!

Thanks, guys! Just to prove NASH isn't (completely) a toy, I made a quick demo of a "poor man's Tacview" with it (code available here). The function UnitPOV() will display the selected unit's point of view, and could be attached to a Special Action.

Here's a T-72 platoon digging in on Catalina Island:



And here's an Atlas flying low over the Isle of Skye:



Hope that gives people a good starting point to do much more interesting visualizations.

Indeed I was thinking of using this during scene design to map near-by elevations so I didn't have to constantly zoom in and mouse around to find exact spots I want, the pov sort of view works nicely with that too, excellent demo!

Thanks, Mike, that's very nice of you to say.

That's a great idea -- I can see that saving a lot of time. If you do end up making that, it would be cool to see a heat map of local cover values too.
