Cool, might have to try that trick. Does it apply to single missions or all of them.
I play mostly random Skirmishes and it brings all the colours to life, but like Paul said it depends on personal preference, so just experiment by tweaking the numbers til you find what you like..)

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

I haven't got an Ipad, I play on my PC and sometimes get the message below when cycling through the terrains, but I simply ignore it and cycle to the terrain I want (Russia/Russia Snow/France etc which works fine). As an experiment I chose the "Missing ID's" terrain and this was the result, so the m...

Lighting tip

Hey guys I've been experimenting with the Data > Lighting file with good results, because the default always seems to put the sun almost in front of us in Skirmishes, meaning the units and terrain graphics are in partial dull shadow. Below is the default file, so I changed the two red-arrowed lines ...

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

I was a bit worried about the Valentine for a minute mate, until I realised that you have got the 2 pdr Valentine, not the 6 pdr, in your test! The Valentine 6 pdr chances are 39, 43, 16 Your test confirms that there is a quite a discrepancy between the performance of the Churchill and the Cromwell...

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

Ok thanks guys, I just set up this test in the Editor and screenshotted the data readouts; the Valentine has got a 57mm gun and the other 3 have got 75mm's. (I ordered no movement or shooting as I just wanted clean uncluttered readouts on turn 1) SUMMARY- Chance to hit % / Chance to penetrate % / Ov...

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

I might be wrong, but I think the AP (and HE) Ratings are just there to give the player an idea of a units abilities, and they aren't actually used by the game in it's calculations. If I remember correctly, there are similar indicative values in Pike and Shot, which uses the same game engine. Hey P...

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

I've just been analysing the data of the tanks below and it seems the Churchill's 75mm gun is not as weak as we thought..:) I was going purely on its 'AP rating' (white circle), but if we look at it's other AP data (red underlined), in particular its 'AP Effectiveness' rating, we see that it rates 8...

Re: West Front British Skirmish Mod 1.1

The Churchill's thick front armour of 100 is above average for a medium tank, for example a Pz IVG is 80.
But the Churchill's 75mm gun is surprisingly weak with an AP rating of only 47 compared to the Pz IVG's 81, so I wonder if the BA devs mistakenly gave the Churchill a 57mm gun instead of 75mm?

Re: BA2 Western Front Army Lists for Skirmish

..so long as there's some captured French equipment around for when I want to have some training division hold off against some Airborne soldiers. Ah, but in random Skirmishes there's no guarantee that the game will give us the type of tanks we want, that's what makes Skirmishes so exciting because...

I am sorry for the delay in releasing these. I am waiting for something to happen, and it has not happened yet!
If you mean you're waiting for Slitherine to host them, why wait?
After all, I've been downloading your mods from Mediafire just fine, so why don't you just carry on using Mediafire?

Screenshot from Paul59's forthcoming BA2 British West Front mod, a French CharB Flamethrower in German colours makes an appearance in Aug 1944, not something you'd like to meet on a dark night..

Re: Ideas for Panzer Corps 2

As a matter of interest, will there be a random mission generator in PC2, or will we only be able to play the same scenarios over and over?

By the way what years have you done for the Brits and US? So far I've seen you post screenshots of the Brits in 1940 and in 1944, any idea about 41 - 43 and 45?
Yup, the mod includes a full range of British units for every year of the whole war..:)

Re: Green arrows?

.."move" and "dash" (for infantry), basically allowing your units to cover lots of ground yet can still hit things quite easily.. Thanks, I've never been able to work out when it's best to use Dash. I mean, if an infantry unit is running on Dash like an Olympic sprinter won't the enemy be able to s...
