Mad Russian -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/16/2011 4:42:58 PM)

The current list:

1. HQ gets a HQ ONLY command button  that branches off just like the  others so it can be given orders  without effecting its subordinates as  it does now.  

2.  Lower supression levels a little bit for infantry. It feels as if they  goto ground a bit too easily in the face of danger. 

3.  Add a no rout, hold at all costs feature like a last stand, what if   those units at Bastonge had the rout factors of the units in this game?   Besides realistically Hitler said no retreating.   Aggressive SOP Elite units are very resistant to routing Others are not so resistant and would benefit from a Hold At All Costs order.

4. Create a step feature for grass animations like trees. 3 steps would be fine instead of just on/off 

5. Of course I want a female partisan and a female sharpshooter.  

6. If possible perhaps a 30:0 per turn feature. I like 40:0 but more variety is always better. 

7. Recheck that FPS meter we get by pressing F1 somehow now I just   don't think it's working correctly. I got some 10-fps last night and had   LOWERED the settings from Ultra to High, my card is better than that   and I have a quad core cpu i7 3.2ghz Strange thing is the video is still   pretty smooth and it should be choppy at 10fps the only difference I   see is the objective flags flapping is different. 

The F1 FPS measurement is accurate.


8. When   setting up random battles give us an ability to choose "random" map at   the "template" choice point. I was surprised this wasn't already   implemented and I had to pick a map to play on. 

Already done and in the Ostfront release.

9. When   choosing what type of army group also put a "random" pick in that box  as  well instead of having to pick infantry, tank battallion, etc. etc.  I'd  like the computer to randomly pick what i get to play with  sometimes as  well. Even a custom choice and then put a ? on each type  of unit in the  mixed of combatants like infantry, trucks, armor,  artillery etc. etc.  to get a more random group of units to play with. I  like NOT KNOWING  what I'm going to get to command in a battle the  most.

Already done and in the Ostfront release.


10. To add damage effects to the 3d models?  Like  scratches from  non-penetrating hits, holes from shots that do  penetrate, track damage,  etc?  I would love to see that.

11. A unit pause command.

12. Text feedback when a unit starts firing at something, specifically:  what  it's firing at and with what. Sort of the same information that's   displayed in the lower left corner of the UI when you select a unit.

13. Unlimited Ammo feature.

14.  Unlimited waypoints

15.  Moveable waypoints

16.  Clicking on an enemy unit will hilight the human players units that are in its LOS.

17. The ability to transport  AT/Infantry guns.

18. The ability to have some influence on airstrikes.

19. A command system that is bit more straight forward when one wants give individual orders.

20. Destructible buildings.

21. A map editor that is much more intuitive. Realistically this probably will not happen but it would be nice.

Make 3 maps then we'll talk.


22. In my view the tac ai needs some improvement. Units sometimes make really bad choices.

23. Better display of maps to be chosen for Random battles and campaigns.

24. Larger Maps.

25. Larger unit limit when creating scenarios.

26. Unit order ques.

27.  A different color for the message when reinforcements arrive.

28. AA guns.

29. Reverse field of view so you could click on an enemy and see lines  indicating which of your units could see him.  That would be much better  than cycling through your units.

30. More verbose messaging.

33. Add 'codenames' or other designations to units so that during battle if I  see "*west flank group* Panzer III destroyed" I would know exactly  where to look.

34. Leave questionmarks longer, or the ability to put a marker on the map  so that if I see something I can put "Suspected KV-1" or the like.  It  wouldn't be good enough for area fire with a tank but it would keep my  small brain from forgetting what I saw.

35. Optional air recon.  If we could designate an area and have a Storch  fly over and give us some idea, it would be great.  An exposed tank  could be identified, and question marks for everything else.  You could  make it a chance based flyover so you could simulate the recon plane  having been shot down.  And futher you could make the information only  visible to units within radio contact.

36. Additional Russian campaigns.  And...maybe North Africa as a expansion pack?  :)

37. More sound

38. Towable guns.

39. Mud terrain doesn't create dust when rounds impact.

40. FOW for entrenchments and trenches.

41.Infantry graphics display for in game showing squads with correct number of men.

42. LOS indicator for what a unit can actually see. A shaded area or something.

43. More diverse experience levels for units beyond the current 3.

44. Infantry taking fire should get off of tanks but would stay in APCs.

45. Cavalry units. Both for infantry and artillery.

46. Motorcycle troops.

47. Kubel Wagons, Jeeps, Gaz...etc. The smaller vehicles.

48. End game on a specific turn.

49. End of game carry over of data.




dazoline II -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/16/2011 4:44:05 PM)

Make an import/export save game to XML ultility.




sztartur -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/16/2011 10:01:33 PM)

Im here for some more:

Exit objective. One side of the map should be an exit objective for units starting from the other side.

Company exhelons.

Battalion echelons.

Be able to choose a company or a full battalion. If a scuad/vehicle gets lost or behind company/battalion commander should be bale to direct them as well. Resupplying ammo possibility at battalion HQ.

Sound contact.

Bulldog -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/16/2011 11:34:12 PM)

Introduce the (rare) Anti-tank dog.

Progressive damage to buildings before collapse. Making the player have to decide whether to move infantry unit out or take a the chance and stay one more turn.

Would you use a weapon that more often than not attacked your own units and not the enemy?

Yeah, considering not a single development team member has put his wishes on the list yet.

That list is nothing compared to ours.

sztartur -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 12:29:23 AM)

How do the two lists correlate?






Mad Russian -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 12:44:04 AM)

At the moment they don't much.

Our list is from years of experience with the game. The customer list is from 5 days experience with the game.

As you might expect they are some very different ideas from both lists.

Good Hunting.

dazoline II -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 12:31:14 PM)

Add more out of the box control of random campaign scenarios, editing all battle files post random campaign build is a PITA to say the least.

Random scenarios in random campaigns seem to have an issue with too many units on the opposing side and not enough units to hunt them all down thus leading to abandoned campaigns.

Such things as being able to control points available to both sides in a campaign and points for victory objectives would go along way to aleviating this.





FNG -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 12:51:36 PM)

A SP:WAW-like long campaign builder would be cool, with options to re-name units and commanders, persistant crews that are not tied to a vehicle (so you don't lose your elite crew because they lost an engine).

z1812 -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 2:10:11 PM)

I would like a better approximation of when a game ends. Often, even though one has all the flags with not much resistance left, the game goes on.

In the same way that the PCK updated Winterstorm I would like the next release to update PCO.

I would also enjoy a chase camera that one could follow a unit with without having to see the rubber bands.




junk2drive -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 2:18:22 PM)

You can press and hold the alt key to watch the playback without the rubberbands, does that help?




z1812 -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 8:31:38 PM)

Thanks J2D. I shall try that.




sage -> RE: Ok WISHLIST TIME after seeing & playing game (5/17/2011 9:37:41 PM)

1. Show suppression status of your units on / with the floating icons that show up in the main window view.

2. Have some kind of warning if the battle is very close to ending.

3. Ability to toggle off Russian Science of War in Random Campaign.

4. Ability to purchase or adjust random campaign units (even in somewhat ahistorical ways)

5. Ressuply out of ammo units

6. Towed AT guns

7. Continue option for lost random campaign battles -- e.g. not to "Skip" it.

You have that now. When the victory levels get close to the top the game is close to ending.

6. Towed AT guns

7. Continue option for lost random campaign battles -- e.g. not to "Skip" it.


This is already an option now.

The skip option is to skip refighting the battle you just lost. If you skip it you go to the next battle. If you don't skip you refight the same battle you just lost.

Good Hunting.

The current list:

1. HQ gets a HQ ONLY command button  that branches off just like the  others so it can be given orders  without effecting its subordinates as  it does now.  

2.  Lower supression levels a little bit for infantry. It feels as if they  goto ground a bit too easily in the face of danger.  

3.  Add a no rout, hold at all costs feature like a last stand, what if   those units at Bastonge had the rout factors of the units in this game?   Besides realistically Hitler said no retreating.   Aggressive SOP Elite units are very resistant to routing Others are not so resistant and would benefit from a Hold At All Costs order.

4. Create a step feature for grass animations like trees. 3 steps would be fine instead of just on/off  

5. Of course I want a female partisan and a female sharpshooter.   

6. If possible perhaps a 30:0 per turn feature. I like 40:0 but more variety is always better.  

7. Recheck that FPS meter we get by pressing F1 somehow now I just   don't think it's working correctly. I got some 10-fps last night and had   LOWERED the settings from Ultra to High, my card is better than that   and I have a quad core cpu i7 3.2ghz Strange thing is the video is still   pretty smooth and it should be choppy at 10fps the only difference I   see is the objective flags flapping is different.  

The F1 FPS measurement is accurate.


8. When   setting up random battles give us an ability to choose "random" map at   the "template" choice point. I was surprised this wasn't already   implemented and I had to pick a map to play on. 

Already done and in the Ostfront release.

9. When   choosing what type of army group also put a "random" pick in that box  as  well instead of having to pick infantry, tank battallion, etc. etc.  I'd  like the computer to randomly pick what i get to play with  sometimes as  well. Even a custom choice and then put a ? on each type  of unit in the  mixed of combatants like infantry, trucks, armor,  artillery etc. etc.  to get a more random group of units to play with. I  like NOT KNOWING  what I'm going to get to command in a battle the  most.

Already done and in the Ostfront release.


10. To add damage effects to the 3d models?  Like  scratches from  non-penetrating hits, holes from shots that do  penetrate, track damage,  etc?  I would love to see that.

11. A unit pause command.

12. Text feedback when a unit starts firing at something, specifically:  what  it's firing at and with what. Sort of the same information that's   displayed in the lower left corner of the UI when you select a unit.

13. Unlimited Ammo feature.

14.  Unlimited waypoints

15.  Moveable waypoints

16.  Clicking on an enemy unit will hilight the human players units that are in its LOS.

17. The ability to transport  AT/Infantry guns.

18. The ability to have some influence on airstrikes.

19. A command system that is bit more straight forward when one wants give individual orders.

20. Destructible buildings.

21. A map editor that is much more intuitive. Realistically this probably will not happen but it would be nice.

Make 3 maps then we'll talk.


22. In my view the tac ai needs some improvement. Units sometimes make really bad choices.

23. Better display of maps to be chosen for Random battles and campaigns.

24. Larger Maps.

25. Larger unit limit when creating scenarios.

26. Unit order ques.

27.  A different color for the message when reinforcements arrive.

28. AA guns.

29. Reverse field of view so you could click on an enemy and see lines  indicating which of your units could see him.  That would be much better  than cycling through your units.

30. More verbose messaging.

33. Add 'codenames' or other designations to units so that during battle if I  see "*west flank group* Panzer III destroyed" I would know exactly  where to look.

34. Leave questionmarks longer, or the ability to put a marker on the map  so that if I see something I can put "Suspected KV-1" or the like.  It  wouldn't be good enough for area fire with a tank but it would keep my  small brain from forgetting what I saw.

35. Optional air recon.  If we could designate an area and have a Storch  fly over and give us some idea, it would be great.  An exposed tank  could be identified, and question marks for everything else.  You could  make it a chance based flyover so you could simulate the recon plane  having been shot down.  And futher you could make the information only  visible to units within radio contact.

36. Additional Russian campaigns.  And...maybe North Africa as a expansion pack?  :)

37. More sound

38. Towable guns.

39. Mud terrain doesn't create dust when rounds impact.

40. FOW for entrenchments and trenches.

41.Infantry graphics display for in game showing squads with correct number of men.

42. LOS indicator for what a unit can actually see. A shaded area or something.

43. More diverse experience levels for units beyond the current 3.

44. Infantry taking fire should get off of tanks but would stay in APCs.

45. Cavalry units. Both for infantry and artillery.

46. Motorcycle troops.

47. Kubel Wagons, Jeeps, Gaz...etc. The smaller vehicles.

48. End game on a specific turn.

49. End of game carry over of data.

50. Import/export to xml save game file.

51. Exit Objectives.

52. Company formations.

53. Battalion formations.

53. Rejoin formation orders.

54. Sound contacts.  

55. Quicker expansion/game release cycle for future additions to the series.

56. Mine clearance.

57. More editing controls for Random Campaigns.

58. Random campaign balance adjusted. Specifically gamer controlled points for both sides forces and Victory Levels.

59. Options for long campaigns such as renaming units and commanders, and keeping crews separated from vehicles.

60. Show suppression status of your units on / with the floating icons that show up in the main window view.

61. Ability to toggle off Russian Science of War in Random Campaign.

62. Ability to purchase or adjust random campaign units (even in somewhat ahistorical ways)

63. Ressuply out of ammo units.

This is already an option now.

The skip option is to skip refighting the battle you just lost. If you skip it you go to the next battle. If you don't skip you refight the same battle you just lost.



What I mean is neither -- I don't want to re-fight it, and don't want to skip it. I want the battle to advance the campaign, but be counted as a loss. Best case is that it would effect the type of battle afterward -- i.e. more likely to end up with a hasty-defense type battle following.

Having to refight makes sense for a static campaign, but it makes no sense for a random campaign. Sometimes battles are lost, and you have to just make the best of it...
