Updated layout for Squadron Benchmark

The app now displays units in the same fashion as in video shown by Team Covenant. All units cards are displayed, showing clearly their remaining shield and hull points (yellow and blue dots near the cards). The detail of the units is now obtained through the "List all units" menu. Actions for the current phase are attached to each unit in the main game area. Selecting one of them displays buttons for the actions available to the unit.

  • Set up: You can only drag units around, and turn them using the panel of arrows.
  • Planning: The available maneuvers in the dial are shown. Select one, for all ships and then go to the next phase.
  • Activation:  Press the button "move" (starting with units with lower skill) and then select one of the action available. The "--" action is a no-action.

  • Combat: There is only one contextual button, and it shows the list of units in weapon range (using any weapon available that can be fired this turn). For each unit, the table displays the % to hit, and when hit, the average number of hits and criticals. It takes into account the capacity of the units (if any), evade and focus tokens as well as blue targeting tokens. The last column shows the % to kill the target unit. It takes into account shields, hull and any defensive bonus the target unit has.
