Re: Frustrating

I wholeheartedly agree with DaveyJ576 - sometimes everything you've done can't have gone better only for the f****ing helicopter pilot to land on the Soyuz capsule that's just returned from a lunar mission, or something else completely beyond your control. What chance do we have against something li...

Re: GS v4.0 new beta testers needed

Stauffenberg, I'd be interested in playtesting. My email address will be sent by PM.

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

This is my last post on the subject. I surrender, unconditionally - I cannot seem to make anyone listen to me and understand my point. In game terms, GS3.1 FTR start the war with a six-hex combat radius - that means they can aggressively seek combat within six hexes. It's not an interception range, ...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

By that argument, Vokt, why are the various units designated FTR, TAC and STR if all three types are present - they are definitely specialised/optimised to function in one of the three particular modes? If all three are present, then FTR, TAC and STR should all have the same values. Since they don't...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Pk867, this (very much not to scale) map just makes my point - the Bf 109 at the start of the war did not in reality have the range that GS4.0 now ascribes to it. You can't have an aircraft flying one distance in one part of the country and a different distance elsewhere if they're flying under the ...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Thanks to you both for the replies. Pk867, range is not the same as radius . 600Km range equates to a 300Km radius = 6 hexes, not 12. My beef is with the combat radius of the Bf 109: if a 109 turned up in Nottingham in my game it had better be prepared to fight! Stauffenberg, I mentioned Dunkirk to ...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Thanks for responding Stauffenberg. Where the FTR unit is based is not as relevant as how far it can get. When France falls, Calais (a non-port city) can't be attacked by ground units unless they're invading (fairly unlikely in the turns immediately following conquest) so it becomes a safe FTR base ...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Thanks AT. As I said, I have no problem with the later-war capabilities of the FTR units, my issue is with early-war ranges. Getting range upgrades through tech is an ideal (and v realistic) methodology. My Sealion hotseat game wasn't particularly affected by the extra FTR range (but the extra FTR u...

Re: GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Thanks for the insight pk867. In 1940 the Bf-109E-3 had a range of 373 miles (600Km), the E-7 481 miles (770Km) and the F-2 583 miles (932Km), according to my sources, and the RAF fighters had comparable range to the E-3 . Bombers could bomb Germany (and Coventry) in 1940, maybe not as effectively (...

GS4.0 Aircraft ranges

Bit worried about the substantial increase in FTR attack range. I seem to recall reading (in many books) that the Bf-109 had a loiter time of about 10 minutes over London from bases in the Pas de Calais, which I take to mean that it had an effective range of (let's be generous) 6 hexes. Given that i...

Afternoon all.
Any idea what "Technology Espionage" is/will be? I can't find anything about it in the Changelog that accompanied the upgrade zip.

Re: CEAW 4.0: First Impressions

Dunno about 80%.
30%? - I dream of 30% (with thanks to The Four Yorkshiremen)! I tried this 21 times, worked twice. Unless you can force Armia Lodz to retreat and the Lodz garrison to destruction it ain't happening. You have to get both to happen otherwise it's 2 turns.

Only ever played against the AI so looking for a new challenge. Prefer to start in 1939, anyone interested? Not even sure how to create or join a PBEM. Pick a side.

Re: Air Support

air units are weak, they are fixed enough in my opinion, without them, or with limited numbers u cant penetrate trenches Air units individually might be weak but remember we're talking about army-size units on the ground, battlefleets at sea and whole Luftflotte in the air. And I think you're wrong...

Air Support

Well, I've just bombed (pun intended) on my second PBEM - I had to surrender as things were just getting silly. Does anyone here recall an AH game called 'Third Reich' from the 1970's? The third edition rules limited the quantity of air support that could be applied to any one battle hex. Anyone her...
