Re: Air Combat

Pilot experience is already in place using specialisations and air commanders. I agree to some extent but consider the facts. Based on specialisation such as "Flight School" we can assume 0 exp = basic training. Pilots can basically take off and land. In a battle between 0 experience P-51D and Fw 1...

Air Combat

I saw the update for Red Storm showing the new VVS aircraft and my initial impression is .... meh. Air combat in OOB is not particularly dynamic as all the stats of the fighters are very similar and experience does not make as much a difference as it should. It would be a vast improvement if the air...

Re: AI fog of war

LOS rules continued...

How is the engineer unit in red getting mortar'd by the heavy infantry unit in blue? Does visibility over water ignore concealment too?

Re: The ability of cut off units to sever supply lines needs changing

A unit that is out of supply and low efficiency can barely move much less cut supply lines so I don't know that I agree with the OP's issue. What I do think are problems that the devs could address are: (1) scenarios where "kill x units" are a primary objective and you have to chase units to all cor...

I can see a Russian plane in the middle center, where did that fly in the AI's last turn?
That's a Ju 88 over the 6 strength Soviet conscript infantry.

Re: Matilda Lend Lease glitch

The Steam version of BA2 is at build 1.0.4 and must not have gotten this fix.

AI fog of war

Does anybody know how the AI artillery circled in red has awareness of my artillery circled in blue? I have never seen the AI use the bombard hex skill before and I have 1300+ hours in OOB. Are they getting visibility around the exit hex? This is from the Approaching Stalingrad scenario in the Panze...

Re: Order of Battle: World War II - v8.5.4 Update

I'd rather remove Marder II, III from the spec so that they can be bought regularly, as they had nothing to do with with Baukommando Becker and were the main types in Russia. The Marder I was indeed dev'd by Baukommando, like the 15 cm SPG on Lorraine chassis in the game, but both types were very r...

Re: Destroying bridges with Strategic Bombers

Interesting idea and I think it could create some new tactics though level bombing at the time was not particularly accurate. The Germans tried repeatedly to bomb the Remagen bridge without much success until the combined effects of all the attacks against from air, land, & water eventually triggere...

Re: Order of Battle: World War II - v8.5.4 Update

What is going on with the Baukommando Becker spec? It does not seem to be in the Panzerkrieg campaign. Baukommando Becker spec is not in the Panzerkrieg campaign. Baukommando Becker spec is in the Endsieg campaign. Yeah, it's in ES indeed. Outside Blitz/PK/ES you can get it before in Sandstorm, but...

Re: Erik's custom campaigns

Attached is a replay of a major victory on Poznan. Unfortunately, replays always go out of sync so by turn 3 it's not following what actually happened in the scenario but you can get an idea of forces and strategy. Hope that helps.

Re: OOB vs PC2 game mechanics

Supporting fire trait for 105mm guns and smaller sounds like great idea to me.

In Erik's Allied Corps conversion campaigns he was using rice fields as faux bocage.

[Gameplay Bug] [Rice field terrain in winter] [8.4.4]

In winter conditions it appears that rice fields have a combat modifier of 0.0 for attacker & defender. Pacifist terrain. :D

Re: [UI][Load Game file selection][New][8.4.1]

I've been playing OOB since 2016 with the same setup and I don't have this issue in other programs unless they recognize game controllers. There are other users on the steam forums reporting the same issue. Something changed in 8.4 to cause this.
