Default Look Closer

After selecting a unit if you right click on a hex it sometimes reveals enemy units previously not visible. I have named this the 'look closer' command.

The changes in this release have largely nullified this feature, whether intentionally or unintentionally, because now when a unit does the Look Closer it gets fired upon.

I found this a useful feature and would like to see it reinstated, at least for infantry units.

Default Re: Look Closer

If you turn in a new direction you do a search, hence why you see previously unspotted units.

The game allows you an infinite number of looks, at no cost to you in MP or anything. So if you happily spun a unit a few hundred times before - then you would be highly likely to spot everyone. Hence the addition of the new rule where units that shift about for a new look, at short range, can attract opfire as a penalty for looking about.

And of course, if you do not like it then turn it off in the preferences screen.
