Hi,

I've noticed that off map arty/mortars seem to have unlimited range i.e. they can barrage anywhere on the map even if it's clear across the board. Not bad for an 88mm mortar

Maybe for Southern Storm some type of modification that somehow models range restrictions could be introduced for off map units??

Just a thought

Rob.

I will take a look, but I thought we had a range cutoff for off map platforms. If not we need to add one in.

We will look at probably adding an aid to Southern Storm to help scenario designers note that the system's range is less than some percentage of the map distance and should appear on map versus off.

Hi,

Sounds good!

Does that mean there are currently no range limitation mechanics for off map platforms??

For Southern Storm maybe??

Just asking.

Rob.

As above, we will be looking at having some kind of message for the scenario designer stating a range limitation at a minimum. We may be able to come up with some other idea down the road as well.

Hi,

Another resurrection for possible inclusion in SS. Short thread...……

Likely will follow a 1/3 rule (1/3 of range is off map. 2/3 runs from map edge). Whatever we do will apply to counterfires, too.

There should be code doing that already. Something must have broken a version or two back.
