Re: Scout the area

After a bit more experimentation I think I have worked out what is going on.... Thanks, and at this point can I ask a stupid question, namely in specifically which tactical situations would we want to use the Scout order? PS- Does the AI use the order? If he doesn't, then I won't use it either in t...

Re: Skirmish battle query

In another Wilderness Skirmish with the "Openness" set to 99% I have just seen 4 AI Airstrikes! That must be the record.

Re: Which Armies/Units would you like to see

1) I would like to see the Pyrrhic list split in two: Pyrrhus in Italy, and Pyrrhus in Greece. Pyrrhus in Italy should have be the one where he has hoplite and italian foot auxiliaries, while the Pyrrhus in Greece list should be the one with warbands representing Galatian mercenaries and thureophor...

Re: Scout the area

Yes, there are blocking trees and non blocking, but surely the point of using the Scout command is that you can see through blocking trees, and the non blocking trees would not be affecting LOS in the first place?.. Yes and I'm sure there's a simple explanation but I haven't found it yet; I suspect...

Re: Skirmish battle query

For the first time I received two AI airstrikes against me (I-15s), this was in an Attack Skirmish. I have given up with trying to increase the frequency of the airstrikes by editing the scripts, so this was with the same scripts as in the 1.5 Skirmish mod. What might be significant: I was playing o...

Re: Scout the area

Sorry Spike, I have no idea what the problem is there. I have just created a similar test scenario, and the Scout command worked fine after I added the trees. There is nothing you have to do as scenario editor to get it to work, it should just work! Perhaps upload the test scenario .BAM file, and I ...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I actually got an AI airstrike last night, right at the end of the battle, it took me completely by surprise, so I did not identify if it was a regular Sturmovik or a PTAB. Unfortunately, my Sdkfz 251-17 got knocked out a few turns before, so I did not find out if it's AA capability had been restor...

Re: Scout the area

By using this command scouts can see 3 squares away instead of the normal 2 squares. Units that can normally see only 1 square are able to see 2 squares away. With snipers this command is very useful because they can scout and shoot during the same turn. Thanks, and I'm trying to find an Editor tut...

Re: Skirmish battle query

..How many times was the Sturmovik used though? Was it just the once, or many times? Just the once. Also, the AI PTAB version only made one attack in a game I played yesterday. The games were around 20 turns length. But the important thing is that they did appear in the battles, even if only once.....

Re: Skirmish battle query

Keep looking out for these AI Airstrikes mate, and let me know if any appear, and in what type of scenario it happens. Okay here's an AI (repeat AI ) Sturmovik clobbering one of my Hetzers in 1.5 today. It was a Human=German Defend Skirmish in April 1945, the Russian AI was the attacker and the com...

Re: Skirmish battle query

..So it looks very much like the AI does not use Ground Attack in Skirmishes, even vanilla ones, so I don't think you will see the AI in my mod using it either.. Tell that to the AI Sturmovik PTAB pilot who just attacked me in a 1.5 Skirmish..:) It was a Meeting, but whether the AI will also bomb u...

Re: Suggestion:add the plain(Mediterranean,North European,Middle East) for the map types.

The last time I checked this game covered far more than just "Europe North of the Alps", and the OPs title for this thread is Mediterranean, Northern European, Middle East, so why limit this discussion to Northern Europe? Anyway, the article you link to says that the deforestation of Germany started...

Re: New wreck graphic?

Actually, I might upload the 1.5 version for you to test soon. I have been trying all week to get Air Attack bonuses working as I would like.. The Air bonus always works fine for me, I get Stukas,Sturmoviks,Focke-Wulfs,Migs,Me109s, so why are you going to tweak it? The 1.5 version of the mod is now...

Re: Suggestion:add the plain(Mediterranean,North European,Middle East) for the map types.

In Europe there was no such things as big open plains. It depends on what you class as a "big open plain", certainly there is nothing to compare with the American Mid West or the Central Russian Steppes, but there are countless flat empty areas in Europe large enough for two Dark Age armies to figh...
