Open Feature request #653 "Unable to throw" icon
Go to the next issue (open or closed)
Go to the next open issue
Because it is a pain to figure out where you can or cannot throw objects, especially when you're trying to land grenades or explosives, I'd suggest having the throwing icon change, so it becomes easier to identify throwing range. Here's a cheap mspainted version of how it would look: [[Image:|ok to throw]] [[Image:|not ok to throw]]

3) Tired to click everywhere on the combat area to throw a grenade without knowing if it will work?

When the soldier is ready to throw an object (ex: grenade), moving the mouse cursor over the combat area gives informations. When the soldier can throw to the selected destination tile, a yellow 3D box is displayed and a message is displayed above the control bar: "Able to throw here!".

When the soldier cannot throw to the selected destination tile, a red 3D box is displayed and a message is displayed above the control bar: "Out of range!" (or "Unable to throw here!" depending the situation).

The 3D box and the message are updated each time the player move the mouse cursor over the tiles.
