Re: Commander Bonus Variables (7.1.8)

Thanks again, Horst. I doubt, JB72, that although your suggestion has merit, it would ever see the light of day in OOB. It would mean a ton of reprogramming and there is not much apparent activity on the part of the developers these days. Any time and effort they may be expending is in the console v...

Re: Please convince me this is different from Panzer General!

But what I don't see is the post to which you were replying "If you're talking about Fantasy General . . ." I remember that post looked a bit weird and I was wondering whether it was another incarnation of H.Balck. Perhaps it was; in any event, it's gone now. I didn't do it, neither did Erik, and I ...

Re: Please convince me this is different from Panzer General!

I can still see all posts. Strange, I can only see five, perhaps I need to re-configure my forum display settings.

Re: Submarine Warfare

I don’t get it either why there is a torpedo-defense bonus ( submarine_defense ) for commanders but no bonus for torpedo-attacks (naval/air). Submarine_attack is the depth-charge attack bonus. It won’t help against surfaced subs. The naval_defense bonus also helps versus depth-charges… not that som...

Re: Submarine Warfare

I think Mojko is pointing out that what we are seeing here, with your subs submerged, is torpedo attack versus torpedo defense rather than naval (surface) attack and defense. Also, he mentions that commanders have no effect on torpedo attack values, which is revealing and probably could be considere...

Re: Trigger repeating every turn

1. Which does "amount 2" mean ? 2. All spawned units come at random then ? If, IF it works as intended (which I think it does; I'm just being facetious), the "2" means it will pick two of the triggers in the list to fire and spawn the units indicated in those triggers. Usually a random trigger is u...

Re: Trigger repeating every turn

I'll take a look at it if you post some screenshots. Meanwhile, I'm wondering if this arrangement might do the trick; greatly simplified for demonstration - only 5 spawn sets per side - but they will repeat so you don't really need 99 separate spawn triggers; just enough to include every unit that y...

"Two decades after D-Day, former Gen. Dwight D. Eisenhower, who was Supreme Commander in charge of the operation, returned to Normandy.

Re: Core forces - free vs. "rebuild"

Okay, now I got it. I did a walkthrough to reproduce the situation. The quick answer is yes, for game balance, you have to repurchase imported core units with both resource points and command points but core units that are subsequently provided to you by the scenario designer cost you only command p...

Re: Submarine Warfare

Based on this SUB TORPEDO HITTING POWER data, I'm starting to feel better about vanilla subs (sorry Gabe). I know, IRL, that a single torpedo could sink any ship in WW2 but in OOB, I have a feeling that this may in fact be not reproducible without throwing naval warfare way out of balance in this ga...

I think he is referring to this: Image0056.jpg As the manual says, if you think of it, you can go directly to your destroyed units list and choose to reform (not reconstitute, but same idea) one of them: Screenshot 1.jpg Or, the game will offer to do so if you try to purchase a new unit when a unit ...

Re: Using Artillery and Subs

It sounds like you already have more of a handle on the proper use of artillery and engineers than many more experienced players around here. It took me a long time to grasp (well, not "grasp" in that it's not rocket science, but "pay attention to") the key aspects of efficiency and entrenchment in ...
