When each batch of US cities joins the allies another 1500 manpower will come into allied pools

Here is the weather report.


bwheatley -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (9/29/2009 5:06:05 AM)

Here is an example of spain that has mud. Right now we're playing testing for balance but mud causes travel to only be on roads. Also causes a 10% loss of readiness. Right now the winter stuff is not completely reworked so winter season will still be using the old system. I wanted to play test the concept of mud before i went into reworking winter prep and such. Btw winter prep is pretty sweet since it really will give countries like the soviets and whoever invests in it the ability to do some winter attacks. The way it is now winter really screws both countries. but now if you have winter prep you take a reduction in the winter penalty 25/50/75% depending on winter prep level 1-3.

In my first turn as the axis i got good weather and we proceeded to pound poland and she will fall next turn if weather permits.

The way weather works now is that in fall and spring months you have a higher chance for mud. And yes some chance for snow but thats mostly reserved for winter.

In summer its going to be mostly clear but it might have some fluke rain storms. One of our other playtest games we had fun testing out FLAK 88's they are finally much more useful and effective. They are still expensive but now 2-5 flak 88 is a pretty nice air umbrella for a 3 hex radius. Also we used them in combat to pull into battle with tanks and they did a great job of really taking out enemy tanks. Finally the axis has something nice to call its own.

bwheatley -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (9/29/2009 6:01:42 AM)

next turn same standard i took out poland now im moving army group south towards the south so i can strike aganist greece and yugoslavia in the coming months.

british exil -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (9/29/2009 7:11:52 PM)

Sounds interesting.

Weather is random? Can hit any area at any time? Or is it turn based?

Keep us informed, please.

bwheatley -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (9/29/2009 10:50:42 PM)

its turn based and area based. Like in spring & fall regions have a higher chance of mud/rain that slow movement to a crawl. So those 17 regions all have random weather per turn.

bwheatley -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (10/2/2009 4:03:56 PM)

we hit a bug and had to start over :) well not a bug so much as i needed to tweak the way weather was. it was a tad too harsh on supply

bwheatley -> RE: WAW S_Beta_ Weather Mod (9/9/2012 10:58:42 PM)

Looks like i'm going to use this system in War In Europe just tweak it for ATG using stringlists.
