Re: WAD? Debarking Infantry, Do Something Without Moving Fir

I don't think you should ever have to move to a new hex first to then be able to perform an action, which has nothing to do with the movement itself. It feels clunky, like it was poorly programmed, because I can't for the life of me think of a reason for doing it. Just let the unit do anything for w...

Re: LZ's & Vehicle Accessible Terrain

On further thought, knowing where you can land or drive should not be a tool for balance. It wouldn't actually change the way any of the units currently work at all. It would only give the player the tools to do the job he already has to do. You might think of it this way, if it were already in the ...

Re: WAD? No IED Sweep from Ambush Mode

Weeeeell.... all games I can think of, board and PC, if you have enough AP's, you can always perform actions without having to leave the starting hex, unless movement is integral to the action being performed. Doing an IED Scan could take the unit out of Ambush mode, which it would have to return th...

Re: LZ's & Vehicle Accessible Terrain

True, they are very elite, but it's really only a question of information. The unit G-3 certainly ought to have a map with viable areas for a pick up, in fact have it all planned out long before the pilot's had his morning Cup-o-Java™ :wink: I'd like to keep that the one big complaint I have about t...

Re: One Buffalo After the Other

Okie-dokie. I'm now letting the first Buffalo build one less hex, and then back off one hex to make room for the next one. It just a bit wasteful of AP's. Looking forward to getting the Buffalo into a road building stampede :lol:

Re: Debarking SF From Helicopter into Mountain

??? it happens every time. You have an helicopter with an SF unit loaded. Select the helicopter and click the unload button on an helicopter. Now hold the mouse pointer over a mountain hex within lest then the full range of the helicopter. The tip of the Route-Ribbon over the mountains turns into a ...

Re: WAD? Debarking Infantry, Do Something Without Moving Fir

An infantry unit and an MRAP both start the turn inside an FOB. First the MRAP loads up the inf unit, and then moves several hexes out into open ground, stops and debarks the inf unit. Now select the inf unit; it has 3 AP's to use, but the only way it can spend any is by first moving. First after ha...

LZ's & Vehicle Accessible Terrain

It is far from apparent, to me at least, where--exactly which hexes--you can land helicopters in the mountains. This is very important, to plan a pickup of units in the mountains. Currently you have to guess and try until you find a place where a helicopter can pick up a unit. The same goes for vehi...

One Buffalo After the Other

I have two Buffalo, one behind the other. I want to have the lead Buffalo start building a road, which it does as expected. But now I want the second Buffalo to continue building the road from where the first Buffalo left off. But instead of the second Buffalo going over the top of the first, althou...

Debarking SF From Helicopter into Mountain

You have a Special Forces unit riding an helicopter. You select the unload button and then click on a mountain hex, for the SF unit debark into, but it never happens. You always have to redo the entire process from the helicopter hovering over the target hex. Real PITA, and I don't imagine this is W...

WAD? Debarking Infantry, Do Something Without Moving First?

Whether debarking from an helicopter or a land vehicle, the debarking unit cannot do anything, except to move off, after which it can do anything, not restricted by the rules.

Is this WAD?

It would be nice if that wasn't the case.

WAD? No IED Sweep from Ambush Mode

When your infantry starts the turn in Ambush Mode, you cannot perform an IED Sweep, unless you move from the unit's current hex first. Is this WAD?

It would be really nice if you didn't have to move first :wink:

Really, it's something you have to see. This is a major bug.
