Wish List : "drawing overlay"

Post by DDSCWarrior_slith »

Hi,

Not sure this is the right forum to post this, anyway I'm a long time TOAW player I II, COAW and now III.
Each version got better, probably this is also why our wish list is growing......

One this I would really like is something as a "paint" transparant overlay on the map, ideally linked to the map and its zooming level, on which I could as "general" draw my plan. e.g Brigade/Division Boundries, lines of advance etc...all the military stuff we all know.

Should not be fancy: just able to draw what I want to do/ to be done, wipe if needed etc... could even be help in playing with multiple people : - one General drawing the intentions, line of advance etc.... the others "executing"

Any good idea?

This is a fantastic idea. I wish every wargame had this ability...you need to be able to make broad strokes, lay out in general what you want to accomplish, put arrival and objective dates on there, etc. So many times in these games you're just kind of floating along, attacking here and there, etc. Yes, I guess you could screen capture a map and then go into photoshop, etc., but I'd like something in the game...an overlay exactly as you described it. Great idea.

Maybe in another 10 years when *everyone* has touchscreen LCD displays, TOAW V will support it. I need to get mentally prepared to handle the support posts complaining about people's chili stains on the screens interfering with the timing and planning of the movement of their Panzer divisions...[:D]

I'm going to move this to the general forum, since it's not a support issue...yet...[;)]

"I don't much care where –" said Alice.
"Then it doesn't matter which way you go," said the Cat.

I would love that !!

I'm a little tired to keep a tab in paper of each objective for each formation ... which must be done in big scenarios
