A useful extension for playing generals.io
This extension keeps discovered mountains, cities, and generals on your screen even after they disappear into fog of war. That means you will never lose track of the location of cities you were fighting over or generals you have discovered, even if your opponents take out the troops giving vision. This extension also keeps track of changes in army for all players at every turn. This information is useful because it can tell you how many towers an opponent owns, as well as who is fighting and losing troops.
- (2020-03-18) Victor Wang: This is a very helpful extension, thanks so much for providing it to the community. There is one helpful feature that I would like added to the extension, however. Maps are generated such that general locations are sufficiently spaced out. Upon inspection, the closest two king locations can be to each other is a distance of the square root of 50 (a horizontal distance of 5 and a vertical distance of 5). Marking a circle of radius sqrt(50) around known general locations would help in reducing the area necessary to search.

This might be too powerful, but you could observe the board, and when a land space switches to a mountain, mark it as a captured general. This helps with locating those still playing, since spawn points have a general layout.
