Re: Bombardment-delay mechanics

That's it. I do ask to correct either the game or the documentation to remove the contradiction between them. By the way, it seems that the current undocumented behavior of the game is in fact better...

Re: Bombardment-delay mechanics

DRG,
you just posted a screenshot of the Game Guide fragment that I quoted in the opening post (http://forum.shrapnelgames.com/showpost.php?p=849953&postcount=1). What made you think I was unaware...

Re: Bombardment-delay mechanics

Is that some kind of inside knowledge? How did you find it out?

Why did my repeat mission start with a delay of 0.2? The aiming is already adjusted and they have to do is to continue firing.

Re: Range doubling

I fear increased ranges will make the game slower, more boring, and much harder for the attacking side, which will now have to cover twice the distance under enemy fire.

Re: Making Counterbattery Fire Happen.

It is actually good that the game has an honest random-number generator. Some modern games, like the new X-COM series, mollycoddle players by interfering in true randomness to miminise their...

Re: Interface improvement for area fire

Yes, I am serious. Yes, it is very inconvenient, especially when the firer and target are more than a screen away, so that you have to scroll from firer to target hex again and again. After all,...

As one who knows how difficult it may be to introduce a seemingly tiny modification to a large and complicated program, I have no further comments.

Re: Interface improvement for area fire

Thank you for the explanation, Mobhack. That code quirk is indeed a bug that had to be fixed, but the current solution has the negative side effect of the general inconvenience of Z-fire, including...

Interface improvement for area fire

In the current version, you have to press Z and click on the target hex to make each indirect shot, which is inconvenient when you want to fire at the same hex repeatedly. Would it be possible to...

Re: Click-based enemy spotting

Area-fire with something heavier than rifles, right?
In my experience, it is often the regular infantry of the enemy.The turning of a unit is an in-game event, which of course may trigger reaction...

Just for the record. If this grey area is a hex shown partially in the dark, then attached is an example with a hex that seems fully visible (29,48). Click on the Japanese unit T0 to reveal a squad...

Re: Click-based enemy spotting

No, it is exactly the problem that I am reporting, and I think it is a bug in the game. You don't seem to disagree, for you call it a "rather insignificant issue," too. I, on the other hand, do not...
