Order solver

Postby Shampoo » 25 Nov 2017, 13:07

Hi Guys, i love this site. The only thing i would like to see changed is the order solver. It would be much more user friendly if you can put armies and fleets on a board, enter orders and see the result. Does anyone know of a more user friendly order solver? If yes, please post a link.
Regards, Shampoo

That would be a great improvement, but if that is not feasible, the best way is to set up a physical board and use order solver in tandem. A bit clunky, but you can see the results.

As Asu says, Backstabbr is similar to what you want. Unfortunately, you have to start from S01 and move to get the relevant units into the positions you want, but after you've done that it's great.

BTW, just noticed that you don't even need an a/c to create a sandbox. Just open any ongoing game, click on the Game menu item on the top bar, and choose sandbox.
