the more I play this the more I become convinced that RUS is one of the best strategy games I have ever played... and I have played many since the mid 80's. The AI in this mod is at level with Sid Meier's best efforts.

Less beautiful but more convenient. If we forget about F8 map, we wonder what's the clear color around the map. It should be a color half way between both (past minimap which was too dark, and F8 one which is too light for the mainmap screen), it would be as convenient but should be nicer.

Enjoy :)

Another variant, transparent background instead of black so that the merging with the interface is better.

Wonderfull :thumbsup: .
Now to be perfect it should show the tin trails between boxes and map (like your 1st version almost did as it came from F8 map). But they were already not in the original minimap... so it would be an extra feature.

They are lost in the process of deleting the background, but not sure they would be visible in a brown background

Hopefully the last versions ;)

Updated the versions 2 and 3, the map used was not complete and some off map boxes were missing (not in the first version, so not updated). Also the trails should be visible in the third.

If you are interested download again :)
