Another idea on weather:

How about an Arctic Weather hex - similar to the Malaria hex - that causes attrition from November to April with Soviets immune to the Arctic effects? It might help discourage the "Northern Route" or at least make it more expensive. A secondary effect might be to require all aircraft to fly as if from sub-sized fields with respect to payload and operational losses during the 6 months of winter.

When you look at weather in the northern areas you see that heavy precipitation is term blizzard. So, they already have some of that in.

Ships operating in "northern" waters receive increased system damage during the winter months, and aircraft are subject to higher operational damage during those months - so this has already been implemented (though in the case of aircraft, operational damage in the game is too low overall, meaning that the "Arctic" rule is less effective than it should be).

AFAIK weather model has not (yet) been changed. Perhaps we can still make a few tweaks.

Joe, it is possible that the tweaks you have already made to operational damage of aircraft will correctly implement the "arctic" rule, but I would certainly not be adverse to you guys looking at the "once it's thuderstorms, it stays thunderstorms" problem - and I'd love to see a correctly implemented Monsoon rule, though I don't expect that you'll be able to come up with that one...

Weather is more than aircraft readiness - so no this is not sufficnet IMHO. A few "one liner" changes are still possible but we will have to see what we can do given the priorities.

So those AE tweaks are only to readiness (i.e. repair of damaged aircraft) and not a general increase in operational damage? I misunderstood that aspect of AE, then.

"those AE tweaks" ??? when I say "tweaks" I certainly limit myself to AE .. but not otherwise. The term "tweak" we define as either "a small change" and/or "a small risk". But otherwise there is no scope limit to a "tweak".
