Re: Can you help me to understand FASCAM batteries better, please?

They are purely for laying of instant minefields, and priced extortionately so as not to allow the player to spam mines all over the map on a whim. They only get 3 sots as well, for the same reason....

Re: Scenario reviews

Scenario designers can do really odd things which produce totally weird results.

If the "fake" plnes have no crew then they are likely not to be spotted unless a unit randomly occupies the hex and...

Re: Scenario reviews

Bunkers can be succesfully engaged with rifle fire, it creates suppression and occasionaly a round gets through the firing ports. Same with general HE bombardment as well.

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

The AI would only be mortaring it if it had seen it somehow, otherwise because it was adjacent to other units that drew its attention.

Just leave the AO on some hilltop in the rear, well away from...

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

I leave A0 as an HQ element and leave it on the baseline where it might be useful as an observer while it still does its real job of being the conduit to all off-map units. (if A0 is dead or running...

This problem started immediately after I had made the HQ to an artillery piece.[/QUOTE]

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

I simply made the changes in mobhack, then loaded the sample turn 0 game you sent and all was well.

If you are trying to make the changes to a "running" game beyond the turn 0 save you sent, then...

Re: A plane consistently missing the drop zone by c. 2.5 km/1.5 miles

Yes, basically don't plot a target for aircraft withinh 10 or 15 hexes of the map edge, unless you plan to approach that from far away (an opposite map edge, not the same map edge the target spot is...

Re: Three SP mortars do not fire explosive rounds & one fratricidal artillery piece

1) Making your HQ an artillery piece is not a good idea. In subsequent turns from turn 0, it wont be able to plot artillery, since artillery pieces cannot self-plot and so you have lost the ability...

Re: A plane consistently missing the drop zone by c. 2.5 km/1.5 miles

I havent loaded the savegame to look at, but that makes sense.

A plane needs a certain distance to enter the map in its initial move onto the map surface. If the target hex is insufficiently far...

Re: A new player wants to share some of his thoughts

Map size isnt really relatable to just simple points values.

It's more about technology - big maps arent good if you are a walking army, even if you give yourself 80 turns. An APC based army has...

Re: A new player wants to share some of his thoughts

The main point is the 1 hex shot at stunned enemy dug-in infantry.

Dug-in infantry won't pull back (usually) like those hit in the open in other battle types, but they do pull back even if dug-in...

I could not find any artillery observer whatsoever!

Re: Unit cost calculation

Simply run the OOB through the cost calculator utility after making your changes in mobhack. The CC can be found on the utilities tab of the game options launcher.

Yes, based in Dundee, Scotland.

Re: Unit cost calculation

That help line is in the mobhack help file, and probably dates from before the Cost Calculator programme was written and the cost was a user made-up number.

The CC programme does the cost...
