 Post subject: "Control" view: show hexes over mountains also?

Domination made an improvement over MA in the "control" show-hexes view by also showing which air bases are connected with lines. This is helpful.

I have a simple suggestion to improve the "control" view even further:

Sometimes it is difficult to count hexes over mountains when one needs to judge whether or not a rocket launcher is able to shoot over a certain mountainous barrier, or whether or not a helicopter is able to fly over a particular mountain and land on the other side, etc. Is it possible to have the "control" view also show "hex points" in or over all mountainous terrain, merely to help the player judge how many spaces these mountains are really taking up?

What do you think?

If I remember correctly, something like this was added to Domination, correct? (I can't seem to find the other post dealing with it now...) And if so, is it possible for one to measure hex distances in MAN 2 in like manner?

Hmmm, when I press "D" it moves the camera to the right...that's it.

Sorry, I meant "X", I was going to make "D", then it turned out "D" moves camera and I used "X".
