T-800: looks good. The flashes cover the barrels better on your version.
I personally favor shorter firing sequences when I have to watch the AI turns and cut the AA autocannons down from 2.6 to 1.8. I also removed the many smoke effects of the 37mm.
I've also reduced the bombing duration, especially from strategic bombers by removing two bomb drops. Try it out, maybe you like to further speed up AI turns too.

Well, you can adjust it: the leading numbers are the "timer" of the sequence.

So a change to

0.0 MG_Flash 0
0.1 MG_Flash 1
0.2 MG_Flash 2
0.3 MG_Flash 3

could do the trick.

Good idea.

Another problem is that the effect sequences must be synchronized with the sound.
The sound for the Flakvierling is a little shorter than the effect sequences. If you extend the duration of the effect sequences, you should also extend the duration of the sound :?

Sorry terminator, I really don't want to get deeper into it right now, but yes, sure, the "effects.txt" and "effectSequences.txt" files are interconnected.

It needs to be corrected in the model. I mean in the stock one. I did that for 3A.

Expect release this weekend... Really sorry guys but my job kills me. Work shouldn't been invented...

When landed on carrier ships, the German planes (recon and bombers) don't have the same "mini-icon" as Japanese or US aircraft.

(The mechanic works with Japanese/US planes landed on the German carriers, so it has to be linked to the German planes specifically)

And it looks good. Nice idea using AA tracers.

There are only few types of mini planes: zero, a4N, E13a, seafire, kingfisher, wildcat. The "miniature" entry contains these IF miniature is used. All IJN planes use Zero, all US use wildcat. Except the seaplane recon. British fighters use Seafire, bombers use none. Italian and the rest use none.

EDIT, tried to import a mini plane but does not work...

Cool, thanks for the info. The secret of one more column of the units.csv revealed :D
Okay, I see, so one could use the "seafire" plane as placeholder for the Germans until this is fixed. But nothing for the poor Italians again... :P

And now I know what the "cX" points in the models files are good for. Good thing I used it within my Ise model nonetheless, without even knowing what it did before. :lol:
(Interestingly the CV Graf Zeppelin has three of those although a cargo hold of just two)

Minor nations transport

Post by Erik2 » Sat Oct 13, 2018 8:36 am

I wish there was a generic truck similar to horse transport.

There are several minor nations missing a infantry transport.
This is especially important for nations with heavy infantry.

The horse was the means of transportation the most used during the World War II. The horse should be a means of transportation for all the units of all the nations.

They will get their trucks, mainly those which had motorized/fast units. (Yugo, Rom, etc)

Heavy inf also gets horse wagon (WIP) for one more hex to move for a non motorized alternative for dire situations and scarcely motorized nations.

WIP pack horse for mountain guns - mainly for external looks, basically a cart with mountain movement.

I'm thinking of bicycles (no movement anim tho). But they will only work on roads and with limits on dry plains. That means a new chassis type of course. Under testing.

3A V0.6 will be focusing more on functionality and white spots in equipment (like Japanese Daihatsu) to provide the necessary parts for colorful scenario building.

Actually Kohyoteki and Kaiten also have minis, but they are crazy. Sometimes they show up, sometimes not. In some combination it is possible. I will show on a scrshot, but they are conflicting with my submarine_carrier class.

In addition, these are just fictional characters.
For example: above the picture with the image of Lt.Col. Francis Gabreski is the signature "Jospeh Dorris" :twisted: :?

Should be "Joseph " I suppose

It seems to me that Pacific, Morning Sun and Marines campaigns require the names of fictitious commanders to be changed to their real names (if possible), but I think it will involve at least a partial exchange of images...
We'll see there eventually appears Richard Bong, Thomas McGuire or David McCampbell (although I think one of the US Pacific air commanders resembles Richard Bong :twisted: ) and Japanese air commanders like Katsumi Anma, Kiyoto Koga, Minoru Genda (Morning Sun) or Saburo Sakai, Mitsuo Fuchida (Raising Sun)
With naval commanders, I suggest Marc Mitscher or William Halsey, as the most famous commanders of large combat groups of aircraft carriers
I feel a lot of discomfort and I see a lack of consistency in the game if in Europe and in Burma we have only real commanders but in the Pacific all the commanders are fabricated.

PS. if the devs don't have time for it, then I can prepare it myself - dossiers, photos and the entire change plan (who will change who)
maybe one of our modders would be interested in creating such Mod for the game? (Unfortunately this part is rather above my skills :( )

It seems that they tried to avoid any representation known persons in the original game with rather anonymous commander pictures (except Admiral Karel Doorman) until this was changed with following DLCs. We should also know by now that too many commanders easily ruin the balance.

Kondi, if you recognize any of the US and JP commanders with stats then I’m definitely interested. I’ve already modified the known guys as close as possible to their rank and accomplishments, while the anonymous resemble the deed of their secondary objective. The commanders without stats are rather uninteresting as no vanilla scenario designer would ever use them.
