Panzerkrieg, Caucasus, seize Oil Rigs?

Post by Estherr » Thu Dec 14, 2017 11:28 am

Hello there

(Finally) made it into Caucasus and cannot complete scenario as oil rigs (two out of three) refuse to switch sides :( I've cleared entire map and even tried to surround rigs with my units, yet only one rig flagged captured. Rest remain soviet 'till the last turn and then it's a defeat... any clues?

Hi,

they should switch to your side if you have one of your units next to it, and no enemy nearby. As this is not working for you - could you attach a savegame here for us to see what went wrong (you might need to zip it)?

In the meantime, if you don't want to wait to continue with the campaign you can proceed by entering a cheatcode (Shift + C to bring up console, click in there to activate, then enter "igotnukes" - without the "") - to trigger the victory.

Hello Bebro, thanks for quick reply.

It's kinda awkward to use cheats since I technically won the scenario. But I see your point :lol:

Save file attached below, hope it helps.

Thanks for the savegame. I don't suppose you still have the output log from this playthrough? If you've restarted the game since, it would be overwritten and no longer useful.

No, I'm afraid, I've restarted since then. And actually I usually restart after 10 turns or so, 'cos game becomes very laggy by that time.... first turns atleast, while there's alot of AI units.

Ok, restarted scenario and managed to win this time.

Yet, one of four rigs not switched sides 'till the very end. Not sure why it's four this time - last playthrough there were only three alive...

Recent saves + output log (hopefully I found proper one, 'cos they scattered all over the place over time) linked below

Yesterday I restarted the scn from the buggy save, and could capture/flip pumps fine as well, so it's hard to reproduce. We'll study the log certainly, thanks for that :)

If you mean later save - yes, I won it too, though one rig not flipped anyway. First one I was unable to win... well, you saw my situation on map.

Another bug I noticed is the central town objective, which was completed even if I didn't hold it (I think it switched to green as soon as I captured the required two oil rigs ahead of time). I still needed a turn or two to capture Maykop.

Hi all,
Is there a resolution for this?
Actually only the 1 oil pump on the left does not switch sides for me.
However, the problem for me is that I've cleared the entire map, all secondary objectives are checked off, but the main objective will not complete. So the turns keep going on... How to solve?

Just wait and you will get the victory
