EQuaTool Elite Quality Map Tools For SH5 v. 01.01 by AvM.

EquaTool when unzipped has 15 Folders.
Each Folder can now be seen so as to help you decide that there is a better alternative than the Stock Tools.
Check the information carefully if you decide that you wish to put your own combination of tools together as some are and some are not compatible combinations.

Folder 1 > Documents.
Contains all the information you need to know and the combinations of tools that can be put together.

Tools that are shown as a Set will enable in JSGME when installing from the Folder number.
INCLUDED STYLES AND ADD-ONS
Flat Style
Standard sized, most similar to default set, but with much better looking tools for higher precision.

Kriegsmarine Style Family
All standard sized, they come in various flavours (check the Styles descriptions below).
The hallmark of the Family is the Nazi Eagle on the tools - an exact copy of markings stamped on all tools/equipment officialy owned by Kriegsmarine (there were a few different designs of these stamps, only some were used).
Version without svastikas (much lower quality and not historically accurate) is discontinued, but available in version 01.00 of this mod (check my FileFront site: http://www.filefront.com/user/Abd_von_Mumit).

Kriegsmarine Regular Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise.
The Eagle is a copy of real markings.

Kriegsmarine Light Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise.
The Eagle is a copy of real markings.

Kriegsmarine Golden Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise.
The Golden Eagle is my idea for eye-candy ("a luxury set") and may not be historically accurate (however the Eagle shape IS accurate).

Kriegsmarine Woody Regular Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise and with wooden handles/grips.
The Eagle is a copy of real markings.

Kriegsmarine Woody Light Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise and with wooden handles/grips.
The Eagle is a copy of real markings.

Kriegsmarine Woody Golden Style
Standard sized, similar to default tools but more precise and with wooden handles/grips.
The Golden Eagle is my idea for eye-candy ("a luxury set") and may not be historically accurate (however the Eagle shape IS accurate).

Large Style
Non-standard sized. All tools are the same - they are large, VERY accurate and look professional.
In fact they can be used in a truly professional manner, unlike their smaller brothers - check manual written for this tool by Moose Malloy, included in \documentation\manuals\malloy's ruller.rtf (written for SH3, some details may not apply to SH5 - I have not yet verified it for SH5).

Medium Clean Style
Non-standard sized.
A good compromise between standard and large sized tools.
Very legible with thick markings.

Medium Faber-Castell Style
Non-standard sized. Same as "Medium Clean Style", but with additional markings (historically accurate KM Eagle, copy of real "Kriegsmarine" writing and pre-war "Faber-Castell" logo as producer of the tool, for immersion).

Woody Style
Standard sized.
These tools don't provide better accuracy than stock, but... they have wooden handles/grips.

Double Set - Large plus Flat Style
Non-standard sized.
Large Style as "extended" series of tools with Flat Style as "simple" series.
For maximum precision and flexibility when plotting a lot.
Uses coloured Eraser tool coming from "Add-on - Coloured Simple Tools".

Add-on - Large Style Ruler
For any "standard sized"
Style replaces Ruler tool (extended series) with a Large Style Ruler (see Large Style description to see the Ruler).
Install ONLY on top of "standard sized" Styles - if installed on top of any "non-standard sized" Style, will render tools useless.
This add-on may NOT be used independently (needs a "standard sized" Style installed first).

Add-on - Coloured Simple Tools
These are here for eye pleasure - they add more colours when working with a map, the also look more real than stock tools.
Install ONLY on top of "single" Styles - if installed on top of any "double set", will render tools useless.
This add-on may be also used independently (without any Style installed).























Recommended Tool for Real Navigation. Everything you need in 1 tool.
