Re: How do we assign Specialisations?

If you look on top part of your (first) pic: - go to the "settings" tab - in there is a big column "specialisations", next to climate settings - it's usually empty, but there is a "+" button at the buttom - when you click that you get offered to add specs, and can select for which country (flag icon...

Re: Why are some Commanders stats empty?

Could be a couple of reasons:

- planned during the dev process, than things changed to use some other commander
- planned to appear in briefings only, so no stats needed
- oversight - though when he's not actually used in any scn it's probably rather one of the above

Re: Panzerkrieg, improvement suggestions

04_Sevastopol : 1.These two infantry units will never land : Is this the lowest difficulty? Hard to say since everything Soviet is low str, but not this str 9 supply ship. Thing is that in the lower diffs the AI seems to be extra-reluctant in certain cases. I seem to remember them landing on normal...

Re: [Feedback][Editor/Game: Exit Points][7.1.8]

Some should be clear from the terrain - naval can only work on water etc.

But yes, once we got combinations (air _and_ naval or just one? which?) it can get confusing/misleading. I like the idea with those icons as helper - I'll ask if this is possible.

Re: Next DLC?

The Me410 outperforms the tac bombers overall, so again all fighters and maybe a strat bomber on occasion are a much more viable choice. I could "lurk" about with a tac bomber, but that is just not viable as it is too weak and gets insta-targeted even with a fighter escort. Interestingly this went ...

Re: Next DLC?

WarHomer: No offense, but to me this sounds like having a problem with bombers not getting a free shot. If your attack aircraft take severe damage all the time then you could try to optimize their use. In most scns the enemy is stronger early, later receives only reserve fgt, but not in the same num...

Re: Next DLC?

I frankly don't understand the problem with "unreliable", esp. not when ppl post they don't use it - that means they use something else, and indeed, there are a lot of alternatives in the German arsenal (or in the US roster, if we include those Shermans). As for ES being fgt only - you *can* play th...

Re: Using Artillery and Subs

It's most useful when you click the sub before moving, then you get the possible hexes to move on (like with any other unit), but most importantly it shows over what distance you stay submerged (if you are at start). Pls. see pic - surface move is 3, submerged only 2 - so if you move full 3 hexes th...

Re: Game expansion

As a very general answer further Allied content was always on the table and those plans have not been dropped AFAIK. I can't give you more details at this point though.

Re: Next DLC?

One thing to bear in mind: we cannot use "unreliable" for all those Soviet tank models that make the bulk of the enemy forces in previous content (Blitz, PK, ES, even MS) -- this would make those DLCs suddenly a total pushover. But any DLC so far had unit _additions_ though, which leaves the door op...

Re: Using Artillery and Subs

Arty is good for reducing efficiency of enemy units - this is IMO most important in OOB esp. since it weakens enemy attacks abnd allows your own inf/tanks etc to destroy those enemy units more easily. Bigger calibers are usually better at this, but of course they cost more. If you are in a longer ca...

Re: Spitfire II on carrier

I was able to land this Spitfire II on a carrier. It does not have the carrier plane trait. Just a glitch? Thx for reporting - besides the trait there is also a specific "carrier" entry which could be wrongly set. As for flying boats I'm not sure if that shouldn't stay for gameplay reasons: They do...

Re: Next DLC?

Getting back to the future of Order of Battle, I think it may indeed be (unfortunately) likely that only one Red Army DLC will be released. I can't predict all possible developments coming still, so this is not a set-in-stone thing, but the plan for now is not to get over with the Red Army in just ...

Max. 18 with #III in 1943 is correct. Starting ES with 12 if you got #II already is too.

Re: [Map Bug: Location Name] [Morning Sun] [New]

Hi, do you refer to the part shown in the pic attached here? In this case it would be normal - if a city is labeled, but has a (visible) unit on top both the label and the unit's strength plate would interfere, so only unit strength info is displayed. Cities in FOW show no units, so display the name...

Re: Current Bugs - Version 7.1.8

I did update my steam version to this patch and get it too there. It's also becoming way more obvious once those vehicles turn to move into another direction. Updating gfx drivers didn't help.

I add it to the db tommorrow.

Those models have not been changed in a long time - anyone tried updating gfx drivers? Thing is, I don't seem to get this in dev 7.1.9., but maybe there's a prob in the public version. Unless the models got indeed affected in some way it seems to be an engine/rendering thing. However, thx for the he...

Re: Building core forces

Does the player ever lose RP's between scenarios or they just keep adding up? There can be few rare cases where the player loses some RP as result of a triggered event - usually explained in objectives and/or text popups. But normally RPs keep growing, but of course you spend a good amount of them ...
