Before I say anything, I have to say this is simply the best operational simulation of all time.
I have just done my duty and purchased the HTTR/BFTB expansion to continue to support the development of this incredible product. I have purchased every engine release since (and including) the original HTTR.
1. I find it too bad that there is still no individual sound for the availability of an airstrike. I find it very difficult to always be checking the airstrike symbol to see if it is available (and I often miss them because I did not see them). Arjuna, can you do anything simple to change the sound to make it obvious we have one waiting for us?
2. I still find it difficult -- if not impossible -- to see elevation differences in the city, or even the woods (of which there are plenty). It would be great to have an "elevation lines layer", but I know there are no "layers" available due to the engine being used. However, has anyone created a landscape mod with lighter (more see through) woods? A slight improvement would be appreciated.
3a. I did a dumb thing and withdrew a regiment in the face of the enemy using a "defend" order (more appropriate may have been a "withdrawl" order follwed by a defend order, marking out the area to be defended). However, I still find the total reversal of the regiment with the HQ at the (new) rear of the formation without any protection unfortunate. I am currently trying to figure out how to get my HQ protected and watching to see how long it will sit there before moving to the "rear" of the recently designated defensive perimeter (as in image). Yet, I suppose this is an example of "do as I mean, not as I say". LOL. Would it be difficult to take threats into account when moving these formations and to protect the HQ appropriately? :) Again, I am happy to accept a, "you didn't do that right...you should have executed a withdraw order in the face of the enemy". But then I wonder, at what point can I order the defensive position? And should I use "in situ" to make it so that my HQ isn't exposed? Any advice on how to execute these maneuvers right?
