Adding a symbol to the NATO symbol set?

Postby Brent Easton » January 6th, 2009, 10:02 am

I want to create a unit with a symbol that is not in the NATO symbol set.

Is there a way to add a symbol to the set, or do I have to do something
like create two Game Piece Layouts - one with a symbol type item, and one
with an image type item in the same position - and use the layout with the
image for pieces that need a non-NATO symbol?

Yes, that's the way to do it.

However, in order to do this properly, I need to know the "default" size
and location of the symbol on the default size counter. Does anybody know
what that is?

There is no default size, it depends on whatever size your layout is. If you are using a 75x75 pixel layout, then just create a 75x75 image with your new symbol in the correct place on a transparent background.
