Everything i needed to say is in the name of the topic, really. I wanted
to make it possible for a player to see, how far his units can move,
BUT, the game (MY GAME) does not count moving in a straight line in the
same way as it does with moving diagonally (is that a word? i mean in
north-east or south-west etc, not in north or south or west or east).
The first one is counted normally, the latter is counted as 1,5 of a
normal move, so you can go for example with a unit that has speed 3 -
three squares vertically or horizontally, but only 2 diagonally. So
showing maximal distance as a square of squared speed number of squares
is - even tho really 1234356788 times better than lack of it -
misleading, because it sugests that you can go 3 squares diagonally with
a piece, that has speed 3, which is not the case.

Answers like "just turn ur game to hexes" - EVEN THO REALLY HELPFULL AND
THOUGHTFULL AND NAIS - will not be enough of a help, sadly. Is there any
way (maybe using a different tool than AoE trait?) too get THIS:
