Hide Pieces - Filter by Property

Postby mycenae » November 28th, 2009, 9:27 am

The ability to add filters to the Hide Pieces button, by property. For example, the ability to Hide Pieces only on a certain map level, or to hide pieces only belonging to certain players.

Is this doable?

I'm working on a module that uses map tiles (game pieces with hexes on them), and players move their unit counters on the tiles. The map tiles and unit counters are on different game piece layers. However, typically, the unit counter obscures information on the map tile that can be helpful to the players in planning moves.

It would be good to have a way to hide the unit counters without hiding the map tiles too.
