Is there a better way to conduct the poll. Could we take off the current leaders and reset everything else to 0 and vote again.

One of the things that always hacked me off about Harpoon Commander's Edition and H3 ANW's development was that they seemed to always put too much priority on adding new features all the time instead of fixing/improving upon what was already there. I'd rather have less, but have it work correctly and efficiently. But in the end, the various incarnations bearing the Harpoon name all could claim the got bigger and grew more and more features, but none really got better in my opinion, just bigger with more things broken.


I'll give you an example, Harpoon Commander's Ultimate Edition's naval gunnery model is completely broken as of the current 2009.097 "patch" (and has been for several years). It worked as designed once upon a time, but it got broken somewhere around the port from DOS to windows and multiple license owners and then got lost to all the "let's add new features" mentality. Yes, I'm talking about something as essential as naval gunnery is broken. Command, please don't fall victim to the same mentality. Fix/improve upon what already is and its shortcomings, and then add new features after please and thank you

It's not broken, but in my opinion the shortcomings to Command currently are the UI/Player control aspects and the AI could use some development. Fix the stability bugs, and then put all efforts into improving the UI/Player control and developing the AI. All else can wait until the base is solid.

I agree. Can a poll be created that allows participants to vote from 1-5 in order of their top issues? It's hard to pick just 1!

Would it be possible to include a button to show maximum range rings for aircraft with current fuel load?
Preferably for cruise speed at current and most economical height.
To me the major games play features nominated are: -
1. Crew proficiency (quality and training) is a major factor and can have a large effect on weapon effectiveness.
2. Refine air combat evasion limitations (reduced agility) would provide a much more realistic game.
This could also be influenced by the Crew Proficiency rating.

Yes to all this - definitely need range rings or something - i cant find range information anywhere and i find it important to know how far i send out aircraft so to speak - which mean all the difference in some scenarios too

perhaps crew proficiency could be an optional setting -and could be randomised to a varying degree, or set as per the designed scenario

Range info is already displayed in the sidebar for the selected unit (listed under remaining fuel).

Well, really it's only endurance that it shows, right? So you have to do the calculation yourself.

(e.g. 3 hrs 23 remaining at 480 kts = 3.383*480 = 1624 nm)

Oh. You might be right

So it should be a trivial thing to have the game do that calculation for us. That would be a good addition(though I've obviously never felt the need to use it )

Well it might depend on the scenario, but i would like to have easy way to know this before an aircraft has been launched altogether, as the example above is only for aircraft in flight already, where their fuel is listed. I had thought that this would be info in the db that i could check but there is nothing there either

One think I missed from Harpoon was the ability to set when and for how long active/passive sensors could be used for while unit was moving.
eg
radar passive - active for 2 minutes every 30 minutes +/- 20% (can't recall exact settings but hopefully you get the drift).

Having to do this manually for lots of platforms would be a pain.

Such a 'warning' would have been unfair.

Sorry, i am just frustrated, been playing Harpoonll/lll Admirals edition since -95, was even more frustrated with those, so i am disappointed that some bad "things" shows up in this game. especialy fligth altitude and weapon rec. I do however understand how much effort you all have done to make this release happen, and i appreciate that.

I hope that my boxed version is more stable and that it include B451.

also the option to have intermittent radar - like in Harpoon and numerous other such sims - that is something that real world systems can do yes?

Yes, and you can do it in Command. It is just manual, the same way real life is if you have micro-manage.

I think that would make for a very difficult process of constantly zoom in and out back and forth to switch radars on an off - a prohibitve task if one wanted to do this for many units. But perhaps there is no advantage to doing it?

I dont think at all that this wonderful sim is in beta still. Its a fully fledged game and one that i am engrossed by, and it is a testament to how enormous its scope is that all the possbilities and sysytems being simulated can still throw up hitherto unseen bugs. It is good that this is being improved. One can already find much to enjoy and i think the editor has many intriguing possibilities that stimulate problem solving and logic,

What i would just like to see included in the next update is the fix to the ai on my side automatically switching on radar when i go into mission editor and doing so before i can even assign units. It shouldnt be overriding the parent emcon on its own at that point at all

Oh, I agree it is difficult in large scenarios to manage sensors with no ability to do anything but on or off. I am just saying it can be done. In fact, my fleets are much stealthier in Command than in Harpoon because I am too lazy to micro-manage their sensors.

Save your money its a bug filled mess IMO. I have no experience in Naval warfare yet I can and have beat every mission I've played (when it didn't freeze on me) that right there tells me something isn't right. All you have to do is give your units a mission and they go happily along finding and killing everything for you. BORING!

Hi, a feature I would like would be a doctrine set for surface AAW ships like:
AAW behavior:
- self defense only
- engage missiles and incoming aircraft
- engage everything

It is utterly frustrating to have my air defense vessels waste their SAMs on peripheral targets in their engagement zone that could just as easily been handled by a fighter.

Otherwise I'd like the implementation of day/night limitations for aircraft, as I like old school scens best.

It's been requested on other posts before but my number 1 feature request is:

SENSOR INFO

It's invaluable having the ship, aircraft, weapon, etc info available at the click of a mouse. But extremely frustrating not having similar info on sensors.

Is there a reason that this data is not made available for the user?

see my thread post: "Select-able Contact emissions info feature" I'm pretty sure the devs know its importance more than the rest of us and have some plans to enhance the sensor info, but I know they are getting bookoo other requests, but I agree that this would be one the most game enhancing useful features.
