Re: ‘41-‘43 soviet dlc wishlist

Combat eng vs assault eng could be solved with the latter having no build pontoon ability. Actually, making this distinction was a missed opportunity early in OOB. Standard eng should be cheap with cp = 2 (Seabees and Bau eng), while assault eng could be more expensive than inf and CP=4. That would...

Re: ‘41-‘43 soviet dlc wishlist

I'm afraid I have to curb the enthusiasm a bit here. The thing is that we are already having many inf units, and I doubt adding many more is the way to go. We have inf and guards inf, not to mention heavy, eng, para, marines - all with new models coming in per year, which already represents various...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Units with an AT gun behind them will take substantially less damage from tanks btw. That's a misconception, though. Supporting units in OoB increase the attacking stats only. Your tactics are sound otherwise IMO, together with what you wrote in the other thread. Other players that want to get bett...

Re: ‘41-‘43 soviet dlc wishlist

Soviet assault engineers units - appeared first time at Smolensk area, August 1943 This troops wore steel body armor (breastplates like medieval knights :) ) and they did an amazing work attacking fortifications or during the breaking of the German defense on the main points of Red Army attack (onl...

Re: Red Star, my favourite so far, Why and a question..

I routinely end with a massive surplus on difficulty 4 and 5 playthroughs, including Red Star. I was able to upgrade all of my four tanks to T-34 on the very first mission they were available. Your issue is that you are too aggressive in attacking with infantry and armor!! Infantry is a screening un...

Re: What if next dlc will be other trilogy...

After playing through the first few missions of KM campaign, I can't imagine something I'd be less likely to buy than another air/naval only campaign. Easily my least favorite part of this franchise behind maybe only the Marine campaign, a campaign of literally nothing but bunker busting on tiny isl...

Re: 'Tanks, more tanks, Tovarish!' - Red Star Review and Discuss

Marine have great stats but expensive to reinforce. Their vs mech stat is also not great. Standard strelki for me any day over the elite units. Infantry, artillery and AT guns are my bread and butter. Artillery is how you kill infantry, not other infantry. And in a defensive position you want heavy ...

Re: Gameplay advice sought for Coral Sea

I had no trouble getting this mission done with all secondaries. Prior to this mission I had completed all secondaries on all prior missions. This meant weaker Japanese air crews and a free BB on my side. I go with two carriers, with an air complement of 2 ftr, 2 db, 2 torp. Don't underestimate the ...

Re: How has the A.I been improved ?

I think, Molve is making a very good general point that any advancement in AI tactics will make it much more likely for the player to lose his core units, which is really harmful in a campaign environment. Even a simple ability to concentrate several attacks on a single unit will make the AI vastly...

Carrier sailed off into sunset?

I moved my plane to a position, then I ordered my carrier to move under it. While the carrier was still moving, I ordered the plane to land. The carrier continued moving off the border of the map. Just kinda sailed away with an insouciant "doot doot this" attitude. I have a save, you can click on th...

Re: Waffen SS

I'm totally down with not using Nazi symbols, but could we get a different version of the main flag as opposed to a pirate flag for the SS? The KM gets a white background on the standard WM flag, maybe give the SS a yellow or green or something background (blue should be avoided for color blind peop...

Re: Burma Road so far...

I'm aware and I did save it, I just don't know where it is saved to. I see a bunch of crashfiles in the main game directory under steamapps/common/, but no replays.

This thread will answer your inquiry: http://www.slitherine.com/forum/viewtopic.php?f=264&t=77109&p=669079 It really doesn't. This is a seaplane tender, the plane is a seaplane. If the seaplane can't land on the seaplane tender, then it is a bug. Every carrier aircraft can land on carriers, even th...

Re: Burma Road so far...

I see a lot of people saying they like light tanks in this scenario. Give the matilda a try. It'll plow through everything and almost none of the Japanese units can penetrate it so it is very cost effective. Once it gets to 5 star it murders everything. The churchill 7 are similarly great, especiall...

Seaplane Tender does not allow Heinkel He 59 to land

Plane has seaplane trait which on mouseover indicates that it should be able to land on seaplane tender. AV Greif is seaplane tender in question. Plane cannot land on the tender and has red hexes near it but white ones for the land airfield. Scenario is Surface Raiders, Kriegsmarine campaign. This c...
