Hello Everyone
After several weeks in beta tuning and balancing we are pleased to say that Strategic Command v1.10 is now available.
This is a significant update and includes a wealth of amendments and bug fixes from the impressive amount of feedback and suggestions from you all following the release of v1.04, especially regarding the balance of the game following v1.04.
The change list is extensive (and listed below) but some of the changes to highlight are : Higher penalties for bring out of supply, (so for example reducing pockets should be more effective), Air unit deployment now needs a little more planning and HQ support and there have been a number of airpower tweaks, Ports are a little easier to capture and Supply lines (via chains of HQs) have been tweaked. Of course there are many campaign updates, other balance changes, AI improvements and bug fixes


v1.10 is compatible with save games from v1.08 (and earlier versions back to 1.04)
v1.10 is a comprehensive update (so you don't need to have previously installed v1.08 etc.)

Or of course you can obtain it by 'checking for update' when starting the game

Many thanks to all of you for your support, feedback and suggestions that have helped to make this the best version of Strategic Command yet.

Matrix Games & Fury Software


FULL v1.10 CHANGELIST

- units at 0 supply may now suffer desertion losses if they are adjacent to at least 2 front line ZoC enemy units that have a minimum strength and supply >= 5. They will then have a 50% chance of 1 strength point loss per adjacent unit. If they are reduced to 0 strength then the unit surrenders.
- units at 1 supply may now suffer desertion losses if they are adjacent to at least 2 front line ZoC enemy units that have a minimum strength and supply >= 5. They will then have a 20% chance of 1 strength point loss per adjacent unit. If they are reduced to 0 strength then the unit surrenders.

- HQs can now only be linked if the first HQ has a supply value >= 3, lowered from a previous threshold of >= 5.
- Air units will no longer receive supply from an HQ unless they are attached.
- under supplied Air units, due to not being attached to an HQ, will be indicated by a red hatch beneath the applicable Air unit.
- under supplied Air units, attached to an HQ but not to the most optimal supply giving HQ, will be indicated by a purple hatch beneath the applicable Air unit.
- fixed a Diplomacy screen error for when there are no active majors in a campaign for a particular side.
- fixed a spotting error that allowed non belligerent and non active Majors such as Italy to spot non friendly units in active Minor territories such as Egypt.
- units that swap will now lose a single entrenchment point rather than being reset to 0.
- fixed a surprised unit movement error for when a unit cannot actually advance at all when attempting to pass through a friendly unit and where it will then be subsequently surprised.
- fixed a PBEM++ Lobby games list error that caused incorrect listings and invalid game loads.
- fixed an air unit de-entrenchment error that caused air units to lose their entrenchment after attacking.
- fixed a recon spotting error that allowed recons to spot into adjacent bad weather hexes.
- fixed an end of game PBEM error that did not allow the current player to review the map once a game over condition had been satisfied and before exiting and sending the final turn to his opponent.
- fixed a unit supply determination error for when a unit is initially assigned to one HQ, and then re-assigned to another more optimal HQ (when HQ attachments are not set to Manual) during the land unit supply calculation phase.
- fixed an AI Carrier unit combat error that caused the AI to hang for up to 30 minutes.
- fixed an AI HQ and other support unit reorganization error that didn't allow the AI to maximize the potential offensive and supply positions of these units.
- fixed a PBEM++ server communication error.
- fixed a convoy MPP transfer amount error in the Convoy Map screen for some custom campaigns.
- fixed a map update issue that did not show the updated fog of war status, and subsequent port strength, for previously hidden ports once a naval unit completed its move adjacent to the port.
- fixed a fog of war shroud display error that did not lift some sections of the shroud due to the spotting range of units.
- fixed an AI naval combat error that had some naval units strike targets beyond their normal strike range.
- units that are temporarily removed from the northern coast of France due to the Atlantic Coastal Gun construction decision, will now be re-placed at the end of the turn on the same turn, instead of a turn later.
- improved AI calculation speeds for when the campaigns near their end dates and there are many hundreds of units on the map.
- Ports will now switch control if you've captured an adjacent resource. The only exception will be if there is another enemy resource adjacent to the port, that resource will need to be captured as well. All other port capturing rules remain the same.
- Ports no longer exert automatic control over adjacent and empty enemy hexes.
- units at 0 supply will have their morale, after recalculation, further reduced by 50%.
- units at 1 supply will have their morale, after recalculation, further reduced by 25%.
- added a LARGE ADDRESS AWARE flag to the game EXE that should improve performance and memory issues on systems running at resolutions >= 1920x1080
- improved AI calculation speeds.
- weather information will now display in the lower left hand corner geo locator panel on resolutions >= 1280x1024. Previously this only displayed on resolutions >= 1680x1050
- HQs will now show their full attachment range when clicking on them a second time, similar to how intercept and escort ranges can be shown with fighter units.
- AI naval is less likely to bombard resources unless it is for an Amphibious assault.
- AI Axis early naval improved for the 1939 and 1940 campaigns.
- AI will attempt to upgrade less during good weather turns which should help it during OFFENSIVE opportunities.

Mostly all sounds good!

quote:

But soes that mean that the AI won't do what I've seen Allied human players do to the Axis in North Africa - which is to bombard resources along the coast so that the Axis supply is reduced?

BTW I assume it's possible to install more than one instance of the standalone (non-Steam) version, but in different folders, so that I could continue my 1.08 PBEM games (although technically possible to upgrade to 1.10, I think the changes would have an odd effect on my games in progress), but start an new PBEM or games versus the AI using the new 1.1- version?

Could you clarify, "Ports are a little easier to capture " "Ports will now switch control if you've captured an adjacent resource. The only exception will be if there is another enemy resource adjacent to the port, that resource will need to be captured as well. All other port capturing rules remain the same."

For example I read this to mean if an Allied unit moves into Constanta and the Axis has a unit just south of Constanta next to the port the port will be captured by the Allies since clear hex south is not a resources.

On the other hand if an Allied unit moved into Rostock but there is an Axis unit in Stralsund (a resource,) then Rostock's port would not switch to Allied.

Is my interpretation connect.

Thank you for the update, but while I really appreciate all the work on improving the game, I am still a little disappointed about the weather information issue:
"- weather information will now display in the lower left hand corner geo locator panel on resolutions >= 1280x1024. Previously this only displayed on resolutions >= 1680x1050"
I am sorry, but having a somewhat older notebook, which otherwise meets the system requirements just fine, I waited for this update for quite a long time, hoping that the weather information finally would be included for every resolution. And now this? Is there really no way to make this crucial information available for every player or did I miss something and it is available?

BTW I see that the Steam version has already auto-updated to version 1.10 - does that mean for the PBEM game I started playing using 1.08 under Steam I will HAVE to continue this under 1.10, or is there a way to revert? Alternatively can I play the PBEM game I've been playing via the Steam version of the game via the DRM-free standalone version of the game (which is still running on 1.08)? Thanks

The v1.10 update should not have any adverse effects on v1.08 games in progress, however, the campaign changes will not take effect until you start a new game.

But in order to continue any v1.08 PBEM games you will unfortunately have to upgrade to the v1.10 update as the PBEM server is now set to that version.

Matrix and Steam version PBEM games started under v1.08 can be continued under v1.10 just fine, you'll just have to upgrade to the latest update in order to do so as the PBEM server is set now to look for v1.10.

Apologies Gunja as most feedback on the issue seemed to center on the lack of support for resolutions playing at 1280x1024 or within that ballpark not having the weather being shown.

Can you tell me what resolution you are playing at and I can take a look to see if there is something I can do for you.

Just started my first 1939 pbem game with 1.10 playing the Axis. The Germans start with tech level 1 command and control, but there is no "chit" in this tech as far as I can tell.

Is this going to be fixed soon, as I'd like to start a new 1939 campaign Vs the AI? Thanks

I've just looked at it again on my end and the chit is there for Germany for Command and Control for at least the 1939 English version campaign, can you confirm that you are indeed seeing v1.10 in the bottom right hand corner of the MAIN MENU screen?

Also, if this is for a different language version please let us know and we will investigate.

Hubert

Hi Bill - I'm a bit confused, in one of my PBEM games I'm currently on 1.08 and loaded the current turn under 1.08, which I left running whilst the 1.10 update happened (i.e. I'm still on 1.08 and in the middle of doing my turn). It seems I *can* still save my turn, which I didn't think I would be able to do after the PBEM servers were updated, but what will happen in my opponents next turn (assuming my turn will sync to the servers - or should I save and exit now, update to 1.10 and then complete my turn)? Will he have to update to 1.10 to load my turn and will all the (non-campaign-specific) changes apply during his turn (such as the port ownership changes - which will affect my game)? Thanks!

I think that if you save before ending your turn, and your opponent updates then they should be able to continue play.

So, should I try to save and update now, before resuming my turn, or would it be better to try to complete my turn all under 1.08, then save?

Hi Oxford,

Either way should be fine,

Hi Oxford,

Hubert


Okay, I saved, quit, then updated to 1.10 and then loaded my in-progress turn. One question, will the port of Liepaja (see attached image) now transfer to Axis ownership at the start of the Soviet player's turn (so they won't receive supply from it)? I captured it in the previous turn (obviously still under 1.08), but it remained Soviet under 1.08 because they had a unit next to it. This new rule would imply this will be the case, but will ownership of the port actually switch now?:

quote:


- Ports will now switch control if you've captured an adjacent resource. The only exception will be if there is another enemy resource adjacent to the port, that resource will need to be captured as well. All other port capturing rules remain the same.
- Ports no longer exert automatic control over adjacent and empty enemy hexes.

From memory it will only switch control at the time of capture... or possibly once that Soviet unit is moved away or destroyed.

Oxford_guy,

See my post above and Hubert's reply to my post above. Based on that port should transfer to Axis.

From memory it will only switch control at the time of capture... or possibly once that Soviet unit is moved away or destroyed.


Even in 1.10? The new rule change suggests otherwise. That will be extremely annoying if it doesn't change ownership until I destroy the unit or it moves away, last turn I blockaded the port, but I don't want to have to keep that up, the old port ownership rule was a really dumb mechanic

I just meant that had you captured that Port under v1.10 and not v1.08, then the port would have changed to your control... now you will likely have to wait until you destroy the unit or it moves away.

I hope that makes sense,
Hubert

Hello taffjones
Have you tried downloading the update again, maybe the first one was faulty or incomplete?

regards
Ben Wilkins

Apologies Gunja as most feedback on the issue seemed to center on the lack of support for resolutions playing at 1280x1024 or within that ballpark not having the weather being shown.

Can you tell me what resolution you are playing at and I can take a look to see if there is something I can do for you.


Thank you for the really quick reply. I am sorry that I didn´t answer sooner, first complaining and than not reacting to the help that is offered, isn´t really polite, but I was so busy with work, that I literally had no time.

I am using a notebook with a 1366 x 768 resolution. I hope that there can be found a solution. In any case I really appreciate the developper support for the series.

Best Regards

Gunja

Thanks Gunja and we should have something in place now that fixes this for you for the next update.
