Green arrows?

Post by PoorOldSpike » Fri Sep 20, 2019 4:09 pm

I just reinstalled BA2 and Kursk after being away for a while and am a bit rusty, can anybody remind me what these green arrows on top of my units mean?

PS- in low angle view I accidentally discovered a very useful key 'M' that makes the big objective markers less obtrusive, even though the key isn't in the manual's 'Hotkeys' list.
Are there any other useful keys not mentioned in the manual?

Also, are there any useful mods I might like to know about?

I think you’ve already moved these units a first time and they can still move a second time :

Well, it seems that a Green arrow simply meens that the Unit has moved and can no longer move (StuG) or can still move (SdKfz):

Yes after running some tests I think we can safely say that green arrows only appear on units that have moved, it's the games way of reminding us at a glance which units we've moved.
However, the arrow will still appear even if the unit has only moved one square, so it might still have plenty of movement left if we want to come back to it later in the turn..:)
