  • by Default (sets are ordered chronologically by release) or alphabetically
  • by Universe: Marvel, DC, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek, or Other
  • by Modern Age (recent maps from tournament-legal sets) or Golden Age (all maps)
  • by whether a map is indoor or outdoor (or both)
  • by map size: 16x24 (2'x3'), 24x24 (3'x3'), or 9x16 squares

Selecting a map will display how much of that map is comprised of certain terrain types:
Hindering, Blocking, Wall segments, Elevated, Water, Special, or Indoor.

Clicking the header buttons will resort the map list in descending order of the amount of terrain selected.

The final outcome of the line of fire is displayed.
You can turn off the line of fire by clicking the RESET button. You also have the option to display gridlines, or the coodinates of each square.
