Battle Grid Highlights

Highlight grid cells to inform the player about selected cells, use ranges of actions, available move range and more.

Battle Grid Highlights #

Battle grid highlights are used to visually highlight/mark cells during certain states of a battle. The battle grid highlight settings can be found in Battles > Battle Grid Highlights.

Use them to e.g. highlight the selected cell during cell selections, the move range and path during move target selections or the use range during an action’s target selection.

Grid cell types can define offsets for placing the highlight prefabs.
