mdsmall -> Weird terrain note (5/26/2021 4:10:03 AM)

One of the fun things about this game is learning about some of the more obscure aspects of European geography. However, in a recent game I was surprised to discover as I was moving a unit on the road from Jassy to Czernowitz along the north-eastern edge of the Carpathians that hex 198,89 - which looks like it should be Mountain hex, or perhaps a River hex - is in fact a Forest hex. Peering through the grime on my computer screen, I could barely make a speck of green in the middle of the hex. I checked the Editor - you can't choose to edit the Terrain layer to pick a piece of forest that small. Just wondering - is this intentional or a glitch?

Little 'Green Men'. Like the ones seen in Crimea, Transdnistra, and South Ossetia. Or, its full disclosure...and soldiers of Tau Ophiuchus Ceti are waving back at you. [:D] Hex 198,89 you say? Hmm..I will go take a look too.

The mountain images can tend to dominate and drown out other terrain types, which is why the forest is hidden in this case. It is actually the 4th forest down if you look at the forest types in the Editor.

I think I'll either remove it or use the Offset setting so that it can be seen.

Hi Bill - I have come across another "weird terrain effect". Hex 173,99 in Italy, one hex north-west of the town of Pescara, looks like it should be a mountain hex. It is surrounded on three sides by mountains and is at largely covered with mountain terrain features. But it turns out to be clear hex. It is also a road and railroad junction, so if you are trying to defend the Italian Adriatic coast against amphibious invasions, it is good hex to occupy.

Any reasons why this is a clear hex? If not, perhaps it could be made a mountain hex. And if so, perhaps you might modify the terrain feature slightly to make that more apparent.

Cheers,

Michael

I'll take a look at it.

Hmmm...interested in that, eh, in our current MP match? [:D]
