Hiding only part of game pieces or 2 ouf of 3 layers

Postby Juuso » January 17th, 2012, 10:27 am

I am refining a module for Eclipse and was requested the ability to hide pieces. I cannot do that with general hide pieces function as the game has a modular map and map pieces also vanish. Is there some way to hide pieces in regard to some property (like layers? I have bottom, middle and top layers, hexes being the bottom ones)?

Yes, if you right click game piece layers, you can add controls to them
