Re: Are the unit stats random?

While I agree with the basic assumption that the Panther and Tiger should have a higher ground defense than the Comet, weight is not everything. Not all the extra weight they put on a tank ends up being armour and thereby increasing protection. A tank equipped with a bigger and heavier gun will be ...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Breaking news just in....... The Allies have started tying lead bars to the back of their tanks - Now they weigh more they're better able to stand up to the German Panzers!!!! That's basically what you're saying. Profiles and nimbleness are also important - just because we cant model those 100% acc...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

So if weight is such a big factor than if we were to add a modern day M1 Abrams (60 tons) to the game it should have a worse GD than a tiger II (68 tons)? Modern day M1 Abrams (60 tons) is not to compare neither with WW2 tanks nor with WW1 tanks. We compare tanks of the same time period only. And f...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

In regards to the weight vs ground defense, in general more weight would equal to more armor. It would also mean lower speed (thus easier to hit) and larger profile i.e. bigger target which would also make it easier to hit but not necessarily mean a debilitating hit. Dear Rood, tank movement stats ...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

My two pennies- Armour thickness is just one factor in determining a tanks ground defence rating. Other factors are- Armour slope, (AP shot tended to go through unsloped slab armour instead of ricocheting off) Armour type, (some armour was "face hardened") Thickness differences of front/side/rear a...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Weight is not a good indicator of how good a tank is. Weight is neither good nor bad indicator. It is the quantitative measure of qualitative characteristics (armour profile, design, thickness in places, etc.) for the game purpose only. The KV2 was over 50 tons - so by your measure a better tank th...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Still using weight as a measure? Ok only a very basic bit of research shows that the comet has comparable thickness of armour as a Panther........So that theory is blown. Also Panther V Tiger. Guess which was harder to knock out from the front? I'll give you a clue it wasn't the heaviest one. Helpe...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Well... you see, stats are coming from older games. Panzer General started this whole system with the initiative, attack and corresponding values, PC1 was just copying and adjusting that (as it was aimed as a remake rather than a new game), and PC2 has significantly improved the original PG system ...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Considering the wealth of units and sheer volume of stats, I'm not entirely surprised if a few numbers seem odd. Putting a magnifying glass on certain aspects will always reveal potential for improvement. More eyes and more focus on unit stats is needed, especially late war units. That said, there ...

Re: Are the unit stats random?

Well ground defence isn't just about how heavy a tank is....... Thickness of armour, is it sloped? Effectiveness of the actual armour plate, nimbleness and profile all have a part to play. Now I'm not saying the comets GD isn't may be a little high bit you need to look at everything and not just th...

Are the unit stats random?

Hallo! I am new to PC2 and like the game very much. Also I am not a professional military expert and understand that PC2 is the game. Please do not get me wrong and I am very grateful to the game designers. But studying 2 files equipment.pzeqp and Units.csv I have some question: How do you distribut...

Re: MoraleDamageFromCloseCombat

Dear Rbodleyscott, thank you very much for your answer! Your explanation with shooting % is very useful, but my topic is about melee engagement between 2 infantry units (480 men, 600 unitsize each). As I have written, we can get the LossFactor. There are 2 ways to get it, both in the file CombatTool...

MoraleDamageFromCloseCombat

Hallo! How does the game calculate "MoraleDamageFromCloseCombat"? See MoraleTools.bsf => if (GetAttribArray(me, "MoraleDamageFromCloseCombat", notional_turn) > FIRST_CT_THRESHOLD) // See Macros.bsf. Roughly 5% losses (but allowing for morale damage not being rounded down like actual casualties are.)...

Re: Problems downloading WATG

Wherefrom can I get the ...\Documents\My Games\FieldOfGlory2 folder to my PC, if this folder is not in the Steam version of FoG2? As I say, the game creates the folder automatically when the game is run (if it isn't there already). Something about your system is preventing it from doing so. I have ...

Re: Problems downloading WATG

This is very odd. Updating to v1.5.12/WATG should not have had any effect on the /Documents/MyGames/FieldOfGlory2 folder. It certainly wouldn't delete it. If it has been deleted, then something else must have done it. Having said that, it should be recreated each time the game is started if it isn'...
