Hi,

I know this is probably a lot to ask!, but it would be great if there was a database of the percentage kill probability.

It would be very useful when playing the game, as currently you do not know what would be the best ranges to engage the enemy.

It could list the kill chance within every hex range(500 metres).

I know you are busy with other things, but would be a great addition to the game.

Many thanks,

MTTODD, the only problem is under what conditions? Each units versus each other unit at each 500m range at each case of weather, skill, readiness, etc, would be an massively huge set of tables. Millions of combinations easy. Part of the rewrite in the combat code for Southern Storm will be partly driven by wanting to expose more numbers of what it going on under the hood for a particular engagement. That way players who want some additional details shown during a battle.

I would not expect the percentage value to include all the variables(weather, skill etc), but just the basic penertraion percentage chance, i.e. the penetration of the gun v the armour protection at given distance.

That would at least give you a rough idea.
