It's quite rare really but when it happens in a high unit count scenario it's a PITA. We mentioned its addition only in case someone happened to stumble onto a leg unit in an older scenario , in the open but reporting being carried by a vehicle.It will report...

"CARRIED BY: then the Formation Letter, Unit ID and unit name

Thank you for that, that makes a lot more sense to me now.

Here's a good example that would be seen in deployment in a scenario.

The unit is loaded and not loaded at the same time. Once the carrying unit is unloaded the doppelganger re-unites with the original unit and that message makes finding where they are much easier

I publish this post for informational purposes only to assist others who may have found difficulties in downloading the 2021 v15 patch. I used the Brave browser, Version 1.28.106 Chromium: 92.0.4515.159 (Official Build) (64-bit) to access the forum. I was unable to download the patch until I accessed the URL via Microsoft Edge.

Kind regards always

Perhaps that browser requires one to manually whilelist sites you trust downloading exes from?

Same as some "helpful" email providers refuse to let you send emails with attatched exes, or even zips containing exes? - a total pain in the butt for developers since they provide no way to bypass thier "sickurity". (Workaround for that is to install crypto software like Veracrypt, make an encrypted drive (they call it a container), save files to the container, and then send a copy of the container as an attatchment, with an agreed password).
https://sourceforge.net/projects/veracrypt/

NB - a veracrypt container is a handy way to store any secure files (personal data, banking, your txt file with passwords etc) on your PC so if some tea-leaf nicks it, its not there to read. Just make a veracrypt container with a decent password, and mount it as a virtual drive when neeeded. The file could be on a USB stick as well, not just on your PC hard drive so you can store that elswhere in yor property. Veracrypt is a continuation of the earlier Truecrypt project apparently.

This is the first I have heard about this browser so I DL'd it and gave it a try. When I tried DLing the patch there was no action and I had to click on "If your download doesn't start automatically click here" at the bottom of the screen and in doing so a window popped up saying I was trying to DL multiple files so I ended that session and started a new one but this time there was no response at all so I tried again and this worked

I right-clicked on "click here" and then " Open link in new window" and that showed

http://download.shrapnelgames.com/do...rade(2021).zip

Then I pressed ENTER and the pop up window to Downloads appeared and from there you can starting downloading with Brave

In 2019 update new command was added to display artillery bombardment on map with # hot key.

Could this fine improvement be expanded in adding new separate commands that show on map height of hexes, terrain density, height of terrain, smoke density?

Personally, I don't see how that would be useful in a game. If you do please explain how

You already an see those in upper left when you hover, don’t think you need them also on the map as well.

This will help to find advantageous, safe and dangerous positions, where a cover and where an open space, and where good point for observation.
Currently we have to move the mouse across the screen jumping with eyes from hex to info string and back and trying to remember something.

Second reason is indistinguishable slopes under trees and buildings.

Third is that there are incorrect hexes on map which look like flat but actually are higher then adjacent flat hexes so you can not see it until point a mouse on it and check out info string. This appears in scenarios and hand made maps.
