Weather effects?

I just finished "Burma Road" and noticed that it was raining during the final battle at Rangoon. Was this just a cosmetic effect, to indicate the monsoon season has begun, or did it have any mechanical effect? If it was a mechanical effect, is weather scripted or semi-random (as in Panzer General / ...

Re: Info on enemy units

Units.csv, that will work, I will just open it up with something like Google Sheets (on another monitor) while I play OoB. Thanks! Your screenshot includes two important pieces of information that I was looking for: class (like Fighter) and role (like Interceptor) but I suspect there is more info in...

Info on enemy units

I can view detailed info on my own units, using the (i) button, but how do I view additional info on enemy units? Even unit size, like Small vs Large aircraft (or ships), would be helpful to know whether to counter them with Dogfighters or Interceptors (or Bombs or Torpedoes) but I would also like t...

Re: Should you finish a scenario early?

Two potential downsides to ending a scenario early are lost opportunities to earn experience for your core units and special rewards for completing secondary objectives.

Re: how to put units asleep

I believe that you can just press the "Z" key, when the unit is selected, to sequence it through the following states:

Active -> Sleep (1 turn) -> Sleep (indefinitely) -> Active -> etc.

Re: support ships in Marines: what are they used for?

I am thinking they are just used to identify the "spawn points" of where purchased reinforcements would arrive? Assuming you mean the static support ships and not the Supply Ships that you place on the map.

Re: Operation Sealion Grand Campaign - Testers Needed!

Please consider Pacific Corps after Soviet Corps. Have you checked-out "Order of Battle: Pacific?" It is, imo, better than Panzer Corps for recreating naval, amphibious landings and rugged island battles in the pacific theater. Thank you. But I like PzC's 2D style, I hope battle from far east to pa...

Re: Young people need to be converted from COD to proper gam

On a side note, I play "World of Tanks" (essentially a FPS but you are driving a tank) and have noticed that the "CoD crowd" frequently dies early -- and uselessly. I am sure they are good at shooting enemy tanks but WoT emphasizes maneuver, deception, timing and (sometimes unspoken) team coordinati...

Re: Allied campaign Cauldron Mission not ending.

The 88s do not guard any victory hexes so some players might bypass them altogether. The minor objective is what makes the mission interesting, imo, because it is a race to rescue them before they are overwhelmed. Aircraft can fly over the hindering terrain and the 88s but, since the closest allied ...
