Why not just change the help text to "Stand" if the soldier is kneeling and "Kneel" if he is standing?
I guess because of translations...

Wouldn't be the first new string in the game. :)

an easy but a bit ugly solution is creating a mod that changes the leg(-colour) while kneeling
so if a soldier kneels his/her legs look slightly-noticable different
that would help me with getting an easy overview who of (all) my soldiers is kneeling
+ only need a mod - no code change required
+ you can see the kneeling state for all soldiers
- its not the best solution from a UI perspective
- it also needs work for all armours that are added via mod

Well, if you can see their legs, the feature is kinda pointless. Because... well... you can see... their legs! :)

challenge accepted
see image/mod
you dont have to mark the legs i put a red square on the top of the leg sprite (in the active player it is behinf the arrow so that form/size is not optimal)
can you guess who is kneeling in the image?
