WTF, is it really going to be heavy rain across entire map on t2 of campaign Case Blau? So everywhere on the entire east front is rain, on June 28nd?
ok found rule - it has 25% rain each turn in summer? Who thought up this silly weather nugget? Are we just making stuff up now?
Sigh - guess going to have to decide about restarting with weather off (THANK GOD and option) or waiting for weather to be fixed in a patch, because that's basically game over for Germans if they get many unrealistic consecutive weather of rain.
Not to try and sound like some mathematician, but Vic you do realize there's nothing statically that says it could not rain every single turn from t2 onward?? If you don't understand that...you're in gambler's paradise. However, there's 100% knowledge that it would not rain every single day between June 42 and April 43 when it comes to weather. Ok, maybe 99.999999999999999999999999999%. Either way, why couldn't there be some more logic and common sense behind the weather model?
AND this is wrong (which is really disappointing):
17. Weather and Seasons
'Aircraft never suffer penalties from any weather or seasonal state
because the 2-day turns allow enough space to find clear periods to perform combat
but then what is this.. a contradiction?
17.3. HEAVY PRECIPITATION
There is a 25% chance every round a major rain or snow event; the effect of this on
regular summer landscape is that it will turn the landscape to mud. Rain causes air units
to suffer an AP loss and decreased combat efficiency.
My aircraft are now all -50% offense and defense because of the rain. So what gives with this, another bug or is display not accurate with functionality (nm that's still a bug in my book)?
Here's a simple suggestion, why not just have a checkbox for historical weather? Almost every single war game I've played from board to computer or bad to good has this option. I think they all have it for a reason?
Sorry if I sounds pissed-off (maybe in hind-sight not good time to post), but I just spend good part of a day working on a T1 for a pbem game and now I have to either redo T1 with weather off or wait for a patch with a sensible historical weather checkbox. Not to mention the time my poor partner wasted on his turn 1 too.
