Anyone else do stupid things...

...like move your whole force in column formation along one edge of the map to avoid having to figure out topographic information from the minimap to plan a terrain-utilizing approach? On some maps that have a flatland along the edge, I've moved entire forces up that flat, with the exception of a couple suicide squads sent out toward the other side first as a distraction. It actually plays out well sometimes, but has cost me in a few intances.

Maybe it's time to replace the satellite/aerial photo style minimap with a topographic rendition of the terrain, to make life simpler for planning advances?

I once sent half my army up along the edge of the map and the AI, trying to use cover, let them walk off the map...
