Love the game, but have a bit of a problem with "Close Terrain". The manual says cities, forests and mountains, but the in-game library/tables say there is ALSO other close terrain: Hills and Swamps for example. I understand the concept, but think it is too widely applied. I first became aware of this when I had a tank unit on plain "hills" outside a city, and the defender attacked me with a low-end infantry and did like 5 damage (because it attacked my close defense rating).
Given the scale of the game this just seems a bit much. Otherwise clear HILLS for Pete's sake? I think "close terrain" should be limited to cities, mountains, DEEP forest, ports, and bocage.
Finally, is this moddable? If I wanted to experiment with changing what terrain is considered "close", where would I find it?
Edit: Found it in the data/terrain file. I may play around with it some and see how it works.
