Is there a way to play Fo:T with the hex grid activated? In turnbased mode your action points are precious which in turn results in heavy guessing where exactly the right locations are for you to go prior to shooting.

I believe activating the grid in the base game is not possible but maybe there is a mod out there you could point me to?
Yeah, the absense of a visible grid when your characters' movements are still limited to it is one of the things that had me stop playing Tactics. I'd be interested in knowing if there's a mod or a line in some config file that takes care of that.
