Ellipse?

Post by aaronfeld »

I'm going through stuff in the units area of the core files and when I edit the unit it says:

ellipse="misc/ellipse-nozoc"

misc/ellipse-nozoc is just for this one unit but I do believe it changes for diff. units. I was just wondering what it does and stuff like that. If you could give me an i.e. that would be really helpful

Thanks

I think it's the ring under it. For example, a Level 1 unit has a complete circle and a level 0 has a broken circle, and some campaigns have leaders with a star thingy.

Exactly.

ellipse-nozoc = dashed ring (ellipse) for lv0s (with no ZOC);
ellipse = full ring (ellipse) for lv1 and up (with ZOC);

For others, see some UMCs.

"nozoc" = "no zone of control"
