This is not modding, as all I have done is apply the already existing 'Retro Map Mod' from Warplan Europe and adjusted the unit counter colours for Japan, India, Nationalist China and Communist China.

I was finding it difficult to separate the Japanese and Chinese unit counters, which are all a similar background colour. I find the alternative colours easier to interpret.

You might be able to change unit counter colours in the editor, but I haven't got that far, so this is just a 'cut and paste' job in the scenario units.png file.

The existing Retro map mod terrain.png from Warplan Europe, gives a cleaner map appearance, rather then the graphic look of the stock map. This is a World size map and I wanted it to look more like a map, rather than a tactical graphic. The effect is more subtle and the terrain types are not so obvious, but the game has other data to confirm the terrain types.

Guessed there was, this is just to keep me going in the meantime.
