I almost exclusively PBEM.
100% on both sides for everything.

Though this thread has me thinking that I should up the toughness of the AI on the occasion that I do play solo, because the AI is not much of a challenge.

Cheers,
Cross

Hi All,

Breakdowns on. Hex grid off, all else standard except:

1) I always play tank heavy, and although it really seems to make little difference playing against some enemies, it also pretty much guarantees that I will need to think about my ammo resupply playing against those nations that do have a lot of armour. It means I have to be really careful siting anti tank guns and making sure I have enough supporting infantry in delay/defend scenarios. It also means that I must have effective supporting artillery if I am going to break up a large armoured attack, and that I must be prepared to move mobile units around and think about relocating them before they are at risk of being ever overrun.

2) The only other tweak I do is to crank up the artillery to 150% effectiveness for both me and the AI. Artillery is "Queen of the Battlefield" after all, and at 150% infantry more readily "go to ground" and armour is more easily damaged and upset. I like to think that artillery has a more profound psychological impact than the standard setting of 100% seems to provide.

I sometimes wonder that if I had not selected Tank Heavy, whether or not 150% artillery would be necessary - maybe I just like artillery!

Cheers,
Gelainey

Mostly default, but sometimes I change them to simulate some type of operational situation or global/strategical situation. I do the same thing with WinSPMBT.

I set spotting to 80 because I don't want vehicles to spot an infantry squad until they are in the same hex.
I don't have z fire because it is too powerful
I set rout/rally to 130 because the morale effect of artillery is too high can we have a button in preferences to adjust artilleries morale effect as well as it's casualties?

Have experimented, but we are happy with all default settings as they are.

What happens if a player resets them in the middle of a battle?

In solo (Vs AI) play, I believe, the "new" reset values are used from then on (may need a save and restart?).

I don't believe preferences can be changed mid battle during PBEM.

I support the wish for an option, but that is because I think the morale effect of artillery is too small compared with its casualties.
