Pacific Campaign 2

Post by junk2drive » Mon Nov 01, 2010 1:42 am

This is the second in my Pacific theatre campaign series. It is based on Wild Bill Wilder's SPWAW mini campaign, Flesh and Steel: Tanks at Munda.
It follows a US Marine Corps tank platoon in the early days of the war in the Pacific, as they assist the US Army in taking the Japanese airfield at Munda, New Georgia.
While the focus is on a tank platoon, the rest of the forces, both friendly and enemy, are infantry.

This zip contains all of the PTO work that I have done so far with help from Merr, Tim1966, and AmazEd. Of course Pip and Iain too.

Awesome :). Once you've gotten some feedback and are happy to do so, then just let us know and we can host it up so that everyone can grab it from ingame.

Cheers

Thanks for all the work you've put in. Great stuff.

What is going on with the minefields. They act like snipers. They turn to face my squads and shoot at them. Should that happen? They are then very difficult to kill by shooting back.

thanks

The minefields were made by Merr and it was an idea that we came up with.

The "sign" represents the center point of a minefield. There is a random chance that your troops will step on a mine. The best we could come up with is a unit that shoots at you within a short range. You either have to go around the mines or kill them.

The Minefields aren't suppose to shoot at you Junk :wink:

I'll download the Camp tonight and have a look at it. My guess is that the code isn't killing the minefields like it suppose to so you actually have an active unit (aka minefield) instead of a dormant dead sign.

The code in my Rescue_Prisoner scenario that destroys the minefields is in the scenario BSF, I believe under the StartTurn or Tick.
If that's left out then yeah, expect minefields to shoot at you, but they won't (or shouldn't) hurt you.

Paul,

I fixed the minefields ... phew ... you changed the name with an added tag AX/AL for axis/allies :shock:

I PM'd you the fixed BSF ... works cool now!

Wish I fixed it earlier when you mentioned it, forgot all about it back then.

The minefields certainly do hurt me. they shoot from 3 or 4 squares/hexes away and kill and suppress my troops.

Has this been fixed, so we can re-download the campaign?

many thanks

hmmm

Merr, your original scenario had the Allies going against the mines. The mines were on your csv as Axis. I made AL and AX so that both sides could have mines.

Then, in testing, I liked how they worked this way. It seems random if they shoot at you or not. They are annoying, as minefields should be. They can kill you, you can kill them or avoid them.

Let's think about this before I change it.

Yeah, the name change and extra minefield unit (for allies) is what broke the original minefield code.

I was unsure whether or not you wanted them to retain their original design or not.

As a group we can decide what they should be. Then Slith can surprise us like they did with the rally and resupply bonus buttons :lol:

I would prefer a hidden overlay that lowers morale and has a chance to kill, only disabled by engineers. Engineers would need a new action (or the one you intended me to use). Hidden, as in revealed when it "fires".

No more comments so I will leave this as is.

Sorry Junk ... back to this ...

Hidden minefields are possible using "globals" defined as x/y coordinates, like VP's.

The only way a player can "search" for the hidden mines with an engineer is methodically, using his cursor. When the player moves his cursor over the adjacent tiles (searching) it will enable a "clearing action_button" letting the player know that the tile contains mines 8)

Pretty cool concept.

Now, with a PLUGIN .... Perhaps Pip can add a plugin for hidden minefields for the scenario designer.

I've not managed to get user plugins into the France update, but they will be going in very soon after that release :).

Cheers

lol with all the stuff that I have had that is invisible until fixed, you would think that making something invisible would be easy.
