In what way is this more outrageous than lack of effect of weight for most designs?

There is another problem with that, namely our pathfinder doesn't account for movement speeds over different terrain (not only terraintable, but also heightmap). This alone is enough to hardly ever want to try doing anything non-trivial with the terrain table.

Pathfinder can be fixed one day :)
I think we need just small terrain advantages/disadvantages. Reduce speed 25% or increase speed 25%. I mean - effects of terrain should be 'smooth'. This would help us to avoid bad pathfinding.

What non-trivial can be made with terrain table? Explain pls.
Currently we have problem - Terrain Table works only for "slow" tanks. Most of tanks/cyborgs do not suffer from bad terrain and do not get advantage from good terrain.
So we do not planning to change Terrain Table, We want to make TerrainTable working.

Unfortunately fixing this problem forces us to re-valuate speed of each tank\cyborg\vtol. I tried to do this in my big unapproved balance patch. I will try again :)

I confirm, pathfinder could solve that easily. I did it in the 2.3 serie. Just have to multiply the distance by the speed at the good spot.
Heretic 2.3 improver and proud of it.
