Re: Skirmish battle query

I have added the Resuppy and Air Reconnaissance bonuses to the Skirmish Mod. I can't see any reason not to have them in, I have kept the chance of them appearing to only 20% or so. The other bonuses; off map artillery, off map rocket barrages, and heavy bombers, are all too overwhelming for Skirmish...

Re: Skirmish battle query

In general, I have a personal rule not to change the stats of vanilla units.. And yet you changed the vanilla III M to III L, be careful, the naughty step... No sweat, when puzzled people ask me if the L is a new model or what, i'll pass them on to you to explain..:) As regards the Jtig, it's not a...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Hi OldSpike, In general, I have a personal rule not to change the stats of vanilla units, unless there is a good reason to do so. I changed the name of the PzIII M because it seemed to be a more logical designation; the PzIII L was the first model to have the long 50mm, and Ausf M's are often depict...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I have just seen the Jagdtiger in action for the first time, I'm not happy with the model, it is way too small. Also the stats look a bit wrong, it has a shorter AP range than a King Tiger, I have not checked it out yet, but that does not seem right. I can fix the stats, but the model is beyond my a...

Re: Skirmish battle query

Would you guys be willing too make the ZIS376mm Show up a little bit less or have it so it isn’t just a ZIS3 76mm without the bombardment option? At least have it so the 76mm has better AP and AP effectiveness, but poor HE. but the 76 mm has better HE and bombardment value and weaker AP. It’s just ...

Re: troops dropping morale when ENEMY UNIT breaks

Odd one this, I believe I saw two of my units test for morale and drop by one and two morale levels respectively when seeing an ENEMY unit break!! Is this a known bug with the latest release? Hi Paul, One possible explanation is if you did not notice one of your generals dying in the same melee/imp...

Re: Skirmish battle query

I think I might be on the verge of creating a new model for a KV-85!..I have taken the turret from a T34-85 and put it on a KV-1 chassis... Go for it Baron Frankenstein..:) PS- Speaking of the KV-1, I don't know if it's worth mentioning but it sometimes appears twice in the same selection screen, l...

Re: Editing 3D models

I agree the alpha is not the issue with the dragoons - that was probably the width of the unit vs the width of the weapon "attachment" model. Yes, that was definitely the issue. You will only have success if the position of the part in the original model matches the position that you want it to hav...

Re: Editing 3D models

Good information, thank you for the reply. I am new to the game but I love modding games. I noticed some mods just needed an alpha layer to fix bows so I was just exploring the way the game works. I don't think using an alpha layer would have solved the Dragoon archer problem, I have known about al...

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 ...

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...
