Sometimes unit facing direction is unclear

Post by the_iron_duke » Thu Dec 07, 2017 3:44 am

There are certain times when it's not clear which direction a unit is facing. I think maybe it occurs when a chaser is pursuing and makes a turn in doing so.

This screenshot is an example. The Hastati in the middle is at an angle between facing "East" and facing "South-East" (compare with the unit in the bottom-left of the screen that is facing "South-East").

Another example. I can't remember what the circumstances were.

True, it is usually when pursuing. Next turn they will change to face whichever direction is nearest to their current facing.

Often, one needs to know which direction a unit is facing in the turn one is in.

Will look into making them face one of the 8 directions.
