I have been away for awhile from the HPS Napoleonic series. I downloaded the 1.15 patch. The maps seem to have some marking for terrain slopes. How can I turn it off? I really dislike it and find it makes the map way too cluttered.

Can't be turned off unless you modify the graphic files.

Joe - you can use the original files that were in the Map folder. Just tell me what view (2D or 3D) that is annoying to you and I will see if I can help you out.

Maybe my memory is wrong here but afaik with the addition of the slops the file dimensions of the corresponding files changed. So switching to the old files might cause problems in other spots as the program won't find graphics where it looks for them, that's why I think the current files have to be modded.

Thanks Bill. I appreciate the help.

I could use what you provide. If it does not work, I will have to revert back to the newer version the map.

I just looked at RBR and it doesn't have the elevation shading. Do you have the "Contours" button on the toolbar enabled? I am assuming this is for the 2D view.

I have the button turned off but it still shows the contour lines in 2D view. Looks like the 1.15 patch removes it as an option. It is mandatory. I went back in and re-loaded the 1.13 patch and the contour lines went away.

Ok - I am not sure which files affect the hex edges. Let me look into this more.

Hi guys -ok this provides the context from the main forum - it is definitely the 2dHexEdges files -Christian is basically correct - these need to be edited off the file if you don't want to see them.

It is easy enough to do - granted this is off my own mod - but it is showing removing the hexsides in question.
