Game

Added Fog of war selection.
This is a drop down, defaulting to unit based view.


The options are:



All means no fog of war.
Unit is like pretty much every other game works and you see all your own stuff plus any enemy which is in LoS of your units.
Commmanders is units your commander or HQ can draw LoS to. That applies to your own combat units as well.
HQ means you only see units your General/HQ can draw LoS to.

Personally, I think Commanders or HQ based visibility will not work.
You need to be able to see your own units to give them orders.
You will of course need to be able to see enemy units to react to them.
If both your unit and one it somehow ends up fighting are out of sight all you would see as a player is a report some time later.

Sketching out the new game view.
Still early days.
Largely because there's a lot of structure associated with creating something which will encapsulate a game / game save.

You pick a scenario from a dropdownlist.
That then has two sides in it.
You pick which of these you will be playing.


You then pick who or what you will play against.
That will be the AI or a person, via PBeM


The textbox for email address appears when you choose PBeM.

Disappears when you pick AI. You're not emailing your computer.

This specific aspect will almost certainly change significantly.
For example.
It could well be most people only play one or two friends - so inputting a (short) list of name and email address separately would suit better.
Eventually, we could build a web site allows you to find opponents and arrange games. Which would of course have a cost associated that we'd have to cover somehow. Maybe google ads would be enough.

There are also other options to add to this screen.

Scenario Editor

Minor changes to how courier distance is calculated.
This is still a prototype because - when finalised - it will be used in the game rather than scenario editor.

Scenario Editor

Bug Fixes:

Commit start time values when typed.
As part of this change I've improved the process which commits bound data when the user clicks a menu item or uses  a key chord to save a scenario.
By default, bindings transfer data from a textbox to the viewmodel ( which is where data is saved from ) on lost focus. Clicking a menu item or using a key chord does not make a textbox lose focus.

Force reload of map when loading another scenario with same map.
Only clear scenario when a new scenario chosen in open scenario

Menu Sliders

Bug Fix
When I made piece size snap to integer numbers, I also broke the other menu sliders used for opacity.
Fixed these so they snap to 0.1 change and use large change of 0.1.
Large change is used when you click the button on either side of the slider.

Map Editor

Added right click piece of terrain in Edit Terrain mode selects that terrain.
This allows you to identify which terrain you want to work with in the left panel from what you're seeing in the right.
The selected terrain is outlined in blue and given a light blue background in the left panel list.

Scenario Editor

Added start time and a new control that allows you to edit that time.
You can type in hours and minutes.
And or use the mouse scroll wheel to increase/decrease either.
There are also up-down repeat buttons if you prefer clicking to scrolling.
A repeat button keeps on clicking when you hold it down ( like the up and down arrows on a browser scroll ).

Hours "clock" so as you scroll up it will go from 23 to zero and scrolling down from 0 takes you to 23.
Minutes work similarly except obviously 0-59.
As you scroll over 59 and the minutes reset to zero an hour is added, as you go the other way it is subtracted.
The mousewheel scroll can  be much faster, especially if you have one of those mice whose wheel will free wheel quickly.  I use a Logitech mx master 2s and I can just spin the mouse wheel. Hours or minutes will then change like a blur.
