A solution for this is to make each country its own separate color. For example. I have Rooks set up as showing in red. and bish in orange. Friendlies are the standard green

I cannot implement this solution.  I cannot in game tell the difference between red, orange, green.  When I watch videos others post up I find it hard to see the enemy cons as the default is red.

I have all friendlies bright blue and all enemies yellow.

Agreed, the only place it is usually an issue is TT

The top of the rook tower needs to be widened by a few pixels.

This is like the old joke that voters are harsher to their beer brewer if he has an outage, than their politicians after raising their taxes. Death and taxes are certain but, fun and sex is only now.

I can see where that might be a problem.
Maybe make one enemy a different color you can see?  If not then I digress that the old AH2 icons were better/would be better for someone like you.
Overall, I think the old icons looked better in general. Same thing with map field icons.  But thats just my personal opinion

And there's my dilemma: Either I can't read the icons, or I get badly looking jagged lines.  :old:

I bumped em to 20 to solve the issue ......yes they are big, but still not overwhealming and I can read them.

This is what I do, too.  Green, red, orange.

But every enemy aircraft icon is one color, regardless of country.

He's talking about the plane icons in the air, not on the clipboard map. Enemy icons in flight are always red no matter what the map colors are set to.
