PowerMonger - Keys
1 - The four icons at the top left allows the player to click between
contour, political, landscape and people maps.
2 - Map on left side of screen currently selected... Your leader can be
clearly seen, with your men shown as white pixels. The white cross
indicates the area in view on the main screen, and can be moved all over
the map with simple mouse clicks, allowing you to keep an eye on enemy
movements. It's the sort of ability Napoleon would've given his right arm
3 - Message window... Beneath the map and above the rotation icons on left.
4 - The compass. The arrow always points North, and clicking on the compass
points will move you in a direction relative to this.

above indicate various facets of your current status. When other Captains
are recruited, they queue up to the left and just behind the Leader, and
can be switched between by clicking on them.
8 - Your window on the world. The view can be manipulated in just about any
way possible, thanks to the flexibility of the polygons used to construct
