Burma updated to v8.7

Post by Erik2 » Mon Sep 12, 2016 9:36 am

Fixed Jap air commanders
Added US land commanders
Fixed a couple of minor bugs

That was the easy part.

Added event pop-ups with pictures to all reinforcement triggers (and there are a lot of them in 195 turns :shock: )

Imphal-Kohima updated to v5.0

Post by Erik2 » Fri Sep 16, 2016 2:25 pm

Complete overhaul.

Most units on both sides are freely deployable.
Changed purchase of units to historical reinforcements. Added a number of Allied and Jap units.
Added more factions (British India plus split Jap & Brit factions into land/air factions, this means better handling of income/resource points).
Added Jap & US commanders.
Better handling of the Chindit airlanding units, added airstrip constructions.
The main rivers can partially be used to transport units.
Added pop-ups for all reinforcement events (a bit of chrome).

I've put up a couple of challenges if anyone wants to test it.

Hi Erik,

Having problems with Iwo Jima multiplayer map (using 7.1), me and my friend can connect to challenge but when I launch first turn it gets to loading and Continue, but clicking on it does nothing. This is the first custom multiplayer sceneario we tried. Scenario files are in ...\Documents\My Games\Order of Battle - WW2\Scenarios also have them in ...Steam\SteamApps\common\Order of Battle Pacific\Order of Battle - WW2_Data\Content\Scenarios

Would appreciate your help.

Thanks,
Arek

Sorry, but there appears to be some problems with the server. I can't access any of my on-going mp-games.
Arctic Fox (an official scenario) failed to launch on turn-1 for me as well.
Have you tried any of the other custom scenarios? I wonder if it is just Iwo Jima.
I'm not able to test this as all tabs are totally blank at the moment.

Hi Erik,

I've been replaying Imphal-Kohima v5.0 with a mate, plays quite differently from the previous version which unfortunately crashed out at around turn 10.
Really enjoying it.. much harder going this time round from the allies perspective.

One thing though - there's an allied truck with a 100mm artillery piece that gets added as a reinforcement after 5 or so turns in - it cannot deploy.
Not sure what is going on, but leaving the truck idle on a hex does not deploy the towed unit. Is there something i'm missing here or is this a bug?
Is there something special you need to do to deploy the artillery from the truck?

Cheers.

Do you have the name of the unit?
This scenario is substituting British artillery (not yet in the game) with US guns. There may be something wrong with the transport assigned.

Or:
If the unit arrives at a terrain location where trucks normally can't go, the unit may not be able to debark. This is a general bug reported to the devs.
For instance, an art unit may not be able to enter mountain/jungle/dense forest, but horse transport can go there.
Problem is that the art unit may never leave transport mode after moving say to a mountain.

Post by Erik2 » Fri Nov 11, 2016 5:59 pm

Changed most units to core units to allow unit updates.
Increased all Japanese land unit experiences.
Increased Japanese sniper unit strengths from 5 to 10.
Added easier way for the Japanese to move units between the central and northern fronts.
(Earlier versions were unbalanced in favor of the Allies).
Changed spawned construction groups to airstrips (too much flexibility in earlier versions).
All objectives must now be clear of enemy land units in a 2-hex radius to count as held.
Replaced some British substitute unit types with proper ones (which became available in the BlitzKrieg update).
Added specializations to US/British/Japanese.

Reduced number of turns from 70 to 60.

Kamikaze air units arrive on all 60 turns, but from somewhat random (Japanese-held) airstrips.

Edit: Added command points needed for deploying core units... :oops:

Sorry for the late response Erik... the name was '4. Field Artillery' - 'British Truck' was the transport. I can confirm it wasn't due to the unit moving over mountain/dense forest...
At the end of the day it would be a nice piece to have, but hopefully doesn't impact the defense of the middle city too much.

The updated Burma scenario should fix this issue. The scenario now uses proper British artillery.

There were far too many units on the map.
I've gone from regimental to divisional units. The number of units are now about 1/3 of the original.
