Thanks! Very instructive as always :good:
BTW, what do you think about insane difficulty so far?

Re: Beta 1. Transport under attack?

The number of transports is limited. You have four transports for your experienced units, the fifth will always be shot. In beta 02 you will have to save the units of this fifth transport. But the game will not give you the units you put in the fifth transporter. So if you want to transport all the ...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

Is it possible that I use the new balance Mod with my current alpha 06 saves or do I have to start from the end of alpha 05?

I saw your upgrades for the Scavengers in you camBalance Branch for Warzone. This will be interesting. But you know, I like competitions.

A possible new accuracy system

5 years ago a poll took place to decide what accuracy system should be used and an intense discussion ensued. The current accuracy system calculates the hit chance independent from the distance to the target. Although I know that I perhaps open Pandora's box, I want to introduce a system where the h...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

I finished alpha 06 with a group of 12 Medium Cannon Cobra tracked tanks attached to a Commander. I think Medium Cannons are now a really viable alternative to Lancers. Tracked Medium Cannons are noticeably slower than the Commander. So another alternative would be to use half-tracked Medium Cannons...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

In campaign most of the battles happen against a group of 5-10 tanks. I believe there will be significantly more hits there, and because return-to-repair is not very common for AI, it is also not important to concentrate fire. Because of that, i'm fine with having them only be effective against lar...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

I made first tests with alpha 06 and due to their horrible accuracy, I found the Mini-Rocket Pod totally useless. I placed an inexperienced Mini-Rocket Pod near to a Repair Facility and let it shoot at a Scorpion body tank. I could have made a cup of coffee in the time it lasts. If we want to make t...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

If I understand these calculations right it means that the hit chance doesn't depend on the distance to the target like in reality. In reality, I have a higher hit chance if the distance to my target is 1m than if it's 10m and my hit chance decreases more if the distance is 100m. Am I right? So what...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

Later than I expected I found the time to make the final test for alpha 05. I used inexperienced units and this level showed me why experience is so important. With experienced units, I have no problem to win the level without losing combat units (of course repair units I use as cannon fodder). But ...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

I searched through the forum and found again what I meant. andrvaut opened a topic in which Per confirmed that direct firing weapons now have 100% accuracy. In combat.cpp in the src folder, I found some calculation about baseHitChance and resultHitChance and in stats.cpp also some informations about...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

@Berserk Cyborg You can read my answer to Eugen here . A little bit off-topic: How is accuracy working actually? I found a thread with a discussion what system should be used to calculate accuracy. But in the end, if I understand it right, accuracy is set to 100% except for the long range. For this ...

Re: Artifacts/technology redistribution in Campaign.

The Project has to steal all the technologies from their enemies they want to use. Except for the few things they have at the very beginning. And to give an NP technology before you met the NP makes no sense. The New Paradigm has been supplying Scavengers with weapons since our arrival - don't you ...

Re: Help needed testing 3.2.x Campaign games!

You can find the discussion about the removed secondary orders here . At the moment we have a primary hold order (press "h")that isn't exactly working like the old secondary one. Bethrezen and I discussed this also several times during testing the campaign and we are both missing the old secondary h...

@Eugen Here is an overview of the changes we made in comparison with the latest master version, not in comparison with version 3.2.3. If I forget something Berserk Cyborg should correct me. I'm just listing the changes that will have an effect to gameplay until alpha 06. We made some changes for wea...
