Alvaro, can you clarify this. Does this mean, for example, if you put a unit into garrison mode you will only receive 50% of the PPs you used to receive for doing this, but it will still cost you the same amount of PPs as before to change it back to a mobile unit? So the net effect is that you lose 50% of your PPs?







AlvaroSousa -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 8:11:46 PM)

Correct. I discovered a serious exploit at the same time I was told in one of my games of how bad it was.




Harrybanana -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 8:24:17 PM)

Alvaro,

Thanks for the quick response. I just tested it, which I should have done before I bothered you. Actually it appears that putting a unit into garrison mode still returns the same amount of PPs as it did before (approx 14.50% of the unit's PP cost), but the PP cost to convert it back to a mobile unit has been doubled (approx. 29.50% of its cost).

This is a big change which will probably help the Allies more than the Axis. Will be interesting to see how it affects game balance.

Thank you for continuing to improve the game.




stjeand -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 8:24:45 PM)

What was the exploit?

Now you got into garrison and out you pay PP to get out...

Instead of going into garrison mode and being able to switch freely...

I guess if garrisons now get +2 AT then maybe that is to make up for the cost?




AlvaroSousa -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 9:50:47 PM)

Ok I got it backwards. I know I tested it. You get less back now.

Players were getting a free loan on their units to do other things. I realized it in one of my games while I was doing it myself. Like France 1940 you garrison everything and build 6-7 armor and mech. Then ungarrison them when France is done.

I did it for a 1942 Barbarossa to build an extra 3-4 armored/mech corps.




aoffen -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 10:20:54 PM)

I was wondering how people were getting so many mobile corps so quickly.




Flaviusx -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 10:51:38 PM)

Alvaro, you are the only person who takes this 42 Barbarossa seriously. I wish you'd stop trying to design the game around making this a viable proposition. As a practical matter all these efforts are doing is making life miserable for the Soviets in 41.

Revert the experience nerf please.




AlvaroSousa -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/20/2021 11:24:45 PM)

It actually helps them in a different way. In my games with Hadros he takes France in early July by doing this gimmick. I don't do it and take it in late August. It is a shift in losses of a lot of manpower and PP for me. This cascades down for when Germany tries to do other things until 1941. It also means they don't garrison all these units, get all these PPs and build a larger army. It scales down the damage of the game which makes it naturally more balanced. At least that is the theory.

But I didn't do it specifically for 1942 Barbarossa. I have played a lot of games with Hadros. He does all the gimmicky stuff he learns. I tend to play the game straight forward. We compare notes, talk about situations, exploitations in the game, I read posts, then I make a change. 1942 is fine as is.

He says I am as good as he is. I don't believe it. I think he is better.

But it was a free loan. You drain infantry to make armor on a 1 for 1 ration. That is just not right. It also means the Western Allies can do that late in the war with ease.

Was the problem with Leningrad port supply fixed in this update?




eddieballgame -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/21/2021 6:43:53 AM)

Thank you for the update.

The game manual available on https://www.matrixgames.com/member/downloads/warplan is dated octobre 17th 2019.

Could we get a link to the updated manual as of v1.00.12 ?

Great update as usual, btw.

Good thing the latest manual is in the game available for direct download.

"?" -> Play -> PDF Rulebook

I searched through the list and didn't see it mentioned. Of course that doesn't necessarily mean it wasn't fixed but simply wasn't added to the list. I suppose
playing with the new version will reveal if it is fixed or not.




AlvaroSousa -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/21/2021 8:26:35 PM)

Might of forgot to put it on but I know I examined it.

This is not completely working. If Russian retakes the hexes, the Road of Life is not restored.

Added 10 shipyards to UK

Do these shipyards arrive as an event? The '39 scenario starts with 65 as in the previous version.




AlvaroSousa -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/26/2021 2:08:29 PM)

Must have done it to the Italian Option only by accident. I will put up a beta once the hotfix releases.

The hotfix is already in the queue.




Villain -> RE: WarPlan 1.00.12 (7/26/2021 2:23:08 PM)

Thanks for the quick reply. Glad I bought some UK shipyards now!
