Re: Editing 3D models

I know I am bringing an old thread from the dead... "I am trying to add bows to the Dragoon 3D model (Dragoons_0.s3f), by adding in the relevant bows text from the Archers_0.s3f file" Am I reading that if I had access to the s3f files I can add the 3d model "attachment" to the 3d model by adding ad...

Re: Skirmish battle query

After some investigation it seems that the following factors all play a part in the unit allocations in the random Skirmishes: Type, Cost, HERating, APRating, ArmourRating, Bombard_Shots, SkirmishInfo, SeasonalMultiplier, and Scenario type. Most of these I cannot touch, as it would alter the units p...

Re: Skirmish battle query

GERMAN- Jun 41- A nice selection of units but the Sturmpanzer SiG33 is noticeable by its absence. (Incidentally the Pz IIIJ (long 50mm gun) shouldn't really be in June 41 as it didn't appear historically til later in the year) I initially agreed with you on the Pz III J, but we were wrong. The game...

Re: Skirmish battle query

The skirmish logic was a complex beast even back then! If you can be more specific, or ideally come up with a very simple repo case for something you think is an issue, then I can take a look - though it was implemented a very long time ago! Remember that you can also check the skirmish logic in th...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I'm going to try to track down a few of the people involved in the BA2 development (below on page 33 of the Ba2 manual) and drop them a few emails to see if they can offer any words of enlightenment. I'll post their replies in this thread if I get any..:) https://i53.photobucket.com/albums/g64/Poor...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I would really like to slightly increase the availability of the KV-1. Unfortunately, a SkirmishInfo value of 3 means they are in nearly every battle and outnumber all other Soviet tanks put together... ..I have found that the Attack option gives a very boring selection of common units. Trying Symm...

Re: Skirmish battle query

No need for that. I don't give up so easily. The date problem is not that bad, most units have availability either starting well before June 1941, or extending past May 1945, or both, so it did not take long last night to correct them all. The afv unit selection is looking not too bad now, although ...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Thanks Oldspike, Yes, some advice from the developers would be nice, but we seem to be making some progress. I did some testing myself and the KVs and T35 do occasionally appear in the other types of skirmish, but not in Attacking ones! At the moment there is nothing I can do about that, but I am a ...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Okay I've just analysed 1.3 with multiple selection tests every June (and April in 1945) with a 'very large' attacking force. RUSSIAN Jun 41-A nice assortment of tanks but no KV-1's and no KV-2's. I didn't see any T-35's either. Jun 42- The only main tank I saw was the T-34/41, so the KV-1 and KV-2...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Okay let me know when 1.3 is released and I'll get on it, no sense in me wasting any more time on the obsolete earlier versions..:) Here is the latest version, 1.3: LINK DELETED (SEE REVISED MOD IN POST FROM 07/11/2019 BELOW) Here are the changes: King Tiger was 4, now 3. So back to the original se...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Hello, I have be reading this form, and worker if you could make it so iPad users can have it for better skirmishes. If you don't know how to do it, just have Pip host it as a official scenario This is very much a work in progress. When it is ready for general release I will look into the iPad issue.

Re: Skirmish battle query

I have finally got the Maus appearing in Skirmish mode! The trick is to increase the SeasonalModifier value to 150, that makes it more likely to be picked in the Winter months. I am not sure what counts as a winter month for BA2, but you can't go wrong if you set the date to December 1945, then ther...

Re: Skirmish battle query

After a bit more testing I can see that the King Tigers are appearing, but far too rarely for my liking. This game should be fun after all, so I will take their SkirmishInfo back to the original setting in the next version. They will probably appear just as frequently as Tiger Is after May 1944, but...

Re: Skirmish battle query

You might not realise it, but there are a few vanilla units that never appear in Skirmishes; Brandenburgers Supply Trucks German Ambulances They are in the Squads.csv file because they are used in the vanilla Campaigns, but Slitherine did not want them in Skirmishes so they have a SkirmishInfo value...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Here is an updated version of my Random Skirmish Mod, now 1.2. Hmm the Pz1 and Katyusha are now appearing in 1.2, but not the Rumanian R-2 and the Rumanian gun. And the Maus is still not appearing, and now the Kingtiger has vanished too, sacrilege..:) Suggestion- maybe all the tweaking is having a ...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I've just had another look at 1.1 Random forces and can confirm that these new units do sometimes appear in it in various years- GERMAN- Jagdtiger, Sturmtiger, Kubelwagen, Flak 30AA, Sd251/17AA, Sdkfz 222 But as yet I haven't seen a Pz I or Maus. RUSSIAN- I've seen the T-35 and AT rifles, but haven...

Re: Skirmish battle query

It was a very rare tank, only 61 total built, so that is probably not a problem. I have set the T35's Skirmishinfo value to 4, which seems to result in most units being picked rarely. A value of 5 seems to mean it is very rarely picked, and 3 is picked quite often. So the only real option is to drop...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Although having said that, I do not know how the game would be able to single out T35s for a defensive battle. It is a new unit so the original game scripts could not have been written with it in mind, and I cannot see anything in the Squads.csv file that could be used by the game to identify it as ...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Okay mate in Mod 1.1 I've just clicked through about 50 Russian attacking selections and 50 Russian defending selections (June 41) and I think the game tends to dish up sets of slightly different selections depending on whether we're attacking or defending, or am I imagining it? For example the new...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Thanks OldSpike, KV-1; The problem with the KV was that it's availability was set to start from July 1941. I'm not sure why the developers had it like that, as the KV was definitely in action in June 41, and even saw some very limited use in the Winter War (1939-40). So I have changed the availabili...
