Casualty lists

Post by soldier » Sun Jul 31, 2011 2:46 pm

My campaign on medium is approaching the end. I got to Sealion 42 and had half my precious army sunk by the british navy. I had another go and this time by keeping my transports back for a turn i managed to go all the way and scrape through for the narrowest of major victories. Unfortunately a few transports did not make it to the shore but it was difficult to tell what units were being hit (they all look the same). I had to bring up unit list and do stock take from memory because the casualty list only shows losses sustained throughout the whole campaign.
Is there an easier way to check actual scenario casualties or could the casualty list have scenario and campaign tabs

if you wait 2 turns you can save 90%-100% of your units. but then you have to move with speed.

No, the "C" casualties could use some improvements.

Like making a difference between Campaign/Scenario - Panzer General already did that.

I would also really like a "strength point losses" casualties list which would me much more accurate as the other list only shows unit kills.

Quoting "Longasc" totally! I had to make an excel file to take trace of my losses! It could be done directly from the game I think...

Have you filled in the data manual ?

I'm having the same trouble off the coast of USA, just lost 5 transports but I'm not exactly sure what was in them.

A good general knows his troops and thus he knows what he lost. ;-)

But a scenario loss table would be nice!

?? What do you mean?
It's a simple excel table where I wrote the name of my units ( divided in divisions) in a column, and filled next columns with the loss turn per turn.
Some formulas helps in calculating the loss per division, units, total, initial , final etc etc. Here it is: viewtopic.php?t=26753

This is my first post, so I should start by saying that I absolutely love this game, and that I'm particularly impressed with the user interface. The casualty list is one of the only things that I'd change. I'd like to see it as a side panel, similar to the unit list. During the deployment phase it would show units lost during the campaign, but after that it could be filtered to show units lost during the mission or units lost since the end of the last player turn. Selecting a unit would open the battle history, with a final entry describing where and when the unit was destroyed.

First I'd like second the proposed addition of scenario casualties, the current form is a step back from PG...

Secondly I'd also like to see a button for this screen somewhere.
