I thought of solving the elephant problem with giving them the ability to jump. it should make them more usefull as this piece has been coppied from an older veriant (persian i think). The cause of the elephant not being able to jump may come from the fact that there are less pieces in xiang qi than in western chess. I have not tried this game but I will try it soon since im making my own set
