Maybe I missed it but how about
1. Eng. units that can build Ports, Air Fields, reguler terrain to trail, upgrade to road, upgrade to hiway, etc.
2. MI units that can ID enemy units within X hexes
3. Editable recon capability
4. New Terrain - Mangrove swamps, swamps (or combinable forest and marsh), Combinable Mountain and Forest/Jungle (where I live mountains are covered with trees), Villages (rural), Rice Paddies, Orchards, Plantation (tea/rubber etc)
5. Naval Helicopter Capability

More Later

Sorry to post this here, but it's important.

America stopped being a free country today. Obama just failed to veto Congress' bill giving the military the power to detain -- indefinitely, without trial -- anyone they suspect of terrorism.

Inside the US, or out. Citizen or no. They need never justify their decision. Pop you into the hatch, and that'll be that.

There's even far worst things brewing in governments corridors, and not only in the US.

The definition of 'terrorism' is very broad, and includes any act that would cost major corporations money. Beware the whistleblowers and lawsuit bringers.

In this thread or on this board?

The execution of OBL has been frenetically celebrated on this board. Why not mourn the death of the American Republic?

I'm not the monitor. But I don't want this thread to get locked. If he had opened his own thread I wouldn't have said anything. Someone else might, but I wouldn't.

Attached is a zip file containing the wishlist document that Jarek Flis and I have been developing for months. It was developed by collecting the wishes expressed here, there, and everywhere. We've tried to be comprehensive, but, in spite of the label, that is unattainable. We'll try to continue to maintain it as more issues are raised. Hopefully, this will reduce the repetitive posting of the same wishes over and over.

It's very important that everyone understand that this document is totally unofficial. Be sure to read and understand the disclaimer it contains and repeated here:

Wishlist:

Give the heavy weapons icon(s) the ranged support (ie artillery) capability.

and clarification:

I'm not saying HW units should be classified as arty - because with the exception of mortars they are largely direct fire weapons. It's the ranged support aspect that should allow them to indirectly participate in combat as HQ's currently can. This also presupposes average effective ranges of about 3,000 m

There are currently 6 heavy weapons icons - 2 armor (heavy tank & heavy SP AT) and 4 other (inf, mountain inf, motorized inf, mountain cav, and airmobile inf). The armor could be negotiable as that might be a can of worms differentiating HE indirect fire (and only if that AFV was capable) with ranges out to 10 km or more. But I think giving infantry HW a standoff capability would enhance realism. At smaller scales (1 or 2.5 km/hex) this might translate into a 2 hex range and allow HW units to be placed behind frontline units which intuitively just seems more appropriate.

Thank you Bob. I scanned the wishlist prior to posting but missed this. Sorry.

What, or how, would the secondary icon or its effect be represented in the interface?

BTW - I finally scavanged enough change from under the cushions in my sofa to buy the game and updated to 3.4. The first scenario I immediately dove into was CFNA (3). Boy howdy it's a very different (and better) game all 'round - Elmer is considerably improved. But the Tobruk minefields are giving me fits!
Did you want them to be able to attack (not just defend) with such brutal effectiveness? A single minefield attack on one unit or a green stack is producing 25-30% casualties. However, I'll still be in Cairo before turn 70.

One more observation: I'm getting a lot more RBC's (for and against) involving relatively strong defenders - surprisingly so. E.g. - the 3-7 Polish Armored Cav pushed my 13-16 2nd MG Bn around. It was > 70% supply/ready. I RBC'd a green 4-8 Aus Inf bn to elimination with an Italian 7-12 Mech.
Just sayin'

It would only be visible in the Force Editor. The Primary Icon would show in the game. But their effects would be combined.

Yeah, that's the thing - even the PO can still take Tobruk early. I figure, if you're sitting in a minefield, enemy attacks will be more lethal.

Machineguns may be passive equipment, as I recall. You have to have a minimum of 4:1 odds to have any chance of RBC. But passive equipment doesn't count in the odds determination. Not sure about the Aussies - there's probably some of that that is passive, but I wouldn't have expected much.

Thank God for Oberst's offer. My guess -- amply confirmed -- is that I've already sunk considerably more time into this problem than I'd wish to. We'll work on getting the boat ready for the next fishing trip, mapping more of the Sahara, actually depositing that rent check, seeing if the car is persisting in its oil leak, making sure we don't miss any good wines passing through Trader Joe's, plotting our eventual escape to Kuaui, finishing the deck so as to shut up the wife -- but not making frigging computers do something they clearly don't want to do.

This one's not so hot:

"9.17.1 Embarked units must assault unrevealed anchorage hexes, even if they prove to be unoccupied."

One could easily be landing somewhere where there is little likelihood of opposition even if the hex isn't 'revealed.' While absurdities may occur with the current system, the change seems more likely to simply produce different absurdities than to actually produce a net improvement.

If, for example, I have a Boer War scenario, and the British come up with some idea involving debarking on the Natal coast or whatever, the prospective anchorage might well not be revealed -- but they'd hardly feel it necessary to prepare for a full-on naval assault. Probably send a boat in an hour ahead of time to make sure there are no surprises waiting -- but I can't see this rule working well in such a case.

Similarly with Japanese landing in New Guinea in early 1942, and no doubt others can come up with other cases.

As so often, if such an effect could be controlled in the editor, that would resolve the objection. However, the programming cost may be excessive, in which case it seems best to me to refrain from an 'improvement' of dubious value.

Many of the other proposed naval changes sound good, but those under the 'revolutionary' section don't.

"9.16.1 Ships would be subject to damage. This would cause reduction in capability as appropriate. It would require repair. Sinking would be caused by 100% damage only. Naval units would not evaporate as land units do. They would only be eliminated if all ships in them were sunk. Damaged ships would not be returned to the pools they would have to get back to port under their own power, debilitated by whatever damage they had incurred."

This seems to me to be entirely misconceived. In the scale and time frame OPART deals in, it's practically the opposite of reality. Take Crete: only a quarter or so of the Mediterranean Fleet was literally sunk -- but another two quarters was so damaged as to be unserviceable for various lengths of time.

Destroyers leaking from near misses can't put to sea again with reduced efficiency -- they have to dock and be repaired, or they'll sink. They're out, or they're in. Rarely are they coming back out of port but with only half of their original fighting strength.

The current system actually handles this about right. In OPART terms, all three-quarters of the Mediterranean fleet would be 'sunk' off Crete. Then the replacement engine will reluctantly dispense about half of the losses back over time.

And that's about what happened. A quarter were sunk for good, another quarter were so badly damaged as to be out of service for the duration of any reasonable TOAW scenario, and the third quarter were indeed repairable over the next few weeks or so.

In general, the whole thing seems to suffer from attempting to take a tactical approach to what is, after all, an operational level game ('Ships can have a secondary armament with different range and shell weight from main armament...9.16.2 Modeling of catastrophic hits that detonate magazines.').

Sorry, but it's my guess that all this should be junked. If not junked, at least make it optional. It'll make matters worse rather than better. Get a stand-alone tactical naval game if that's what you want. This is like trying to make OPART do your taxes. It's not the right engine for the application.

'8.34.3 Alternate: Player option to set a divisor value for the unit. Both the units remaining MPs and interdiction chances would be divided by that value.'

That's outstanding. Simple, elegant, and fairly accurate.

It's likely to prove cumbersome to do it unit by unit, though. Setting a default for the entire force, moving those units for which one has concerns, then turning the default off to move the rest of the force and/or toggling back and forth as needed would be better, if not necessarily practical to program.

'7.33 Attack Planner table showing percent chance of success like old style CRT'

It won't be the end of the world if this appears -- but it appears to ignore the way OPART works.

The whole effectiveness of the system owes much to the fact that there are so many contributing variables that one has to go with one's gut feeling, modified by experience ('hmm...these guys actually seem to give way pretty easily -- let's try popping more of them with reduced forces').

But you don't know. You aren't given any terribly definitive data. It's like actual battle in that respect -- and this is a good thing.

'7.32 Ability of a fresh unit to replace an existing fortified unit in a location gaining its fortified deployment immediately.'

Also outstanding. In an ideal world, there'd be some chance that your turn would end and you'd discover that the fortification hadn't 'took.' This would simulate units being caught relieving other units.

...But that'd take some research to work out just how often it happened and just how catastrophic the effects were. I'll take this one as is.

"...6.38 Explicitly model tank-carrying trucks.

Excessively detailed, of dubious importance -- was there ever a force which found itself unable to move up tanks on account of no tank carriers?

'2.44 Bridge repair made non-random:
2.44.1 Less than 100% engineer attempts would be accumulated over time and between units, till 100% was reached. So a 25% engineer would take exactly four turns to repair a bridge.'


Been through that. For the reasons I gave at the time, I don't think this is necessarily a good idea.

However, it has its virtues, and either way, it won't exactly break the game. In general, though, I oppose efforts to make things completely predictable and controllable. Actual war tends to be just the opposite.

"2.45 Make terrain effects cumulative for both movement and combat."

That sucks. How do you square this with not wrecking previous scenarios? I, for one, have mapped many things on the assumption that effects aren't cumulative.

...and I don't want them to be. Some hills are wooded. They're not uber-hills on that account -- on the whole, they're fairly average hills. Now I can't put in the trees unless I want to see the hills become that much more formidable. So much for Merrie Olde Englande in Seelowe -- all those hills are going to have to become bald whether they are or not.

The only way this could work is if it's designer option. As a fixed setting, it's an extremely bad idea.

'4.7.2 Minimum dividable unit size designer setting. This would replace the section workaround.'

Good.
