Re: thermal imaging...

In WW2 battles where I am fighting with a dismounted infantry force as the default, then I find an 80x80 battlefield best suits that.

Once the grunts are generally provided with APCs then larger...

Re: Implementing A Reverse Slop Defense

It isn't modelled - all units have the same depression and elevation.

Hull down in the game is either dug-in, swimming, or on a higher elevation than the firer. Hull down makes hitting a little...

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

We already toned down the amount of smoke that infantry elements receive compared to the original MSDOS game. Most seem to get 2 or 3, maybe 4.

Re: Tanks in shallow water

I think they do have a chance of being immobilised. It also is costly to move in shallow water.

It really only applies to beach landings in any case - a very small set of scenarios.

That usually happens when you are trying to drive your monitor at a resolution it cannot handle.

Re: Set Direct Fire Target Vs Fire Weapons at Target

Because the "F" key leads to an assault with all weapons.

The "W" key fires the selected weapon line only, with no assault.

Assaults can destroy the largest AFV, but are stressful to the...

Re: Victory in a battle like this will crease your chance of promontion?

It may be.

And then someone will want all the same wrecks etc left lying around - which definitely isn't going to happen as the 2 players will need new forces, and wrecks are units on the roster....

Re: Victory in a battle like this will crease your chance of promontion?

That is what they do, and the battle is played on the last batloc - but with a new map generated from that.

Re: Star Wars?

Its unlikely to be integrated into this game, its the sort of thing that needs to be written in at the start of the design and not cobbled on.

A bit off topic, anyone who has played SP3, what do you think about the "Orders" values that limit the amount of orders we can issue a unit?

Re: Question on infantry SAMs

SAM will only fire if they think there is a chance of a hit - and the EW balance is part of the calculation for hit chance.

My Blowpipes regularly fire in 1970s campaigns against Soviet planes and...

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

The new rule was precisely to remove the way that a few wrecked jeeps or whatever provided a "tree line" of tangled metal and fire. Unless its post war and you have "see all" thermal vision.

Re: Concerning CHQ Link

A0 can rally anyone - if he is close by. CHQ can rally subordinates if close by as well. Subordinates of his own company that is, not another company's troops.

A0 of course is the commander for...

Re: Any Wreck Limit to Vision?

And those that do produce flame will also produce smoke that drifts down wind as before, thus blocking more LOS - i.e. the original effect.

As Don said above - we may look into it after a while of...

Re: Concerning CHQ Link

Even if you have no radio - runners or dispatch riders are assumed to keep you in touch from time to time.

Rallying requires contact - and radios do allow rally at long ranges.

As with any text in the SP games - only plain ASCII characters, otherwise strange things may happen, or the game may even crash.

Re: 2018 SPMBT Upgrade Patch

Mobhack searches for a partial string, as explained in Mobhack help somewhere.

Thus "B-2" as a search sub-string will find instances of:
B-2
B-26 Marauder
B-29

etc
