Re: HQ unit for AI run side

Yes as the offmap units will be less avaiable due to comms problems.

As to how the AI uses the A0 - as a regular unit which slowly follows the herd of lemmings. It might be a bit more likely to...

Re: HQ unit for AI run side

Re: Interface improvement for area fire

The game has no knowledge of who fired Z-fire or X fire. Adding such flags would be exactly the same as the following (new core data).

Adding a new x,y just for Z fire is a fundamental core data...

Re: Interface improvement for area fire

from the version 12 release notes:



So no, the indirect fire hex for the unit is deliberately nullified per Z or X fire shot in order that it cannot be used for the above.

Re: Issues with scn 19 Goch-Calcar Road

There is no reason that an assault mission has to have mines or forts in it.

It does mean that the defender is dug in, unlike an advance v delay.

Re: Should air assets have counter-battery options

Plus, off map units have no local air defence assets. You would have to have some way to put SAms, AAA etc in support of the off map units. How would these units interact with planes attacking the...

Re: The FASTBOAT Patch page.

I saw some blue weapons in pictures of an article on training troops in boarding operations in the gulf.

The article specifically stated the blue weapons were special CQB training dummies.

Re: Sound error in scn 199 Desperate Hours

Re: Issues in scn 33 Halfaya Pass

If a designer alters a unit, the basic info will change to reflect his edits - but the unit still points at the original databse entry for the second "more info" data.

Re: effectiveness of infantry vs armor in wooded area?

Fire has its own penetration mechanism, which can bypass any thickness of armour. It's why flamethrowers and molotovs got a big hike in points cost when we introduced te cost calculator.
