Just a newbie question. I am in a middle of a game. What will happen when the patch comes out? Will it erase my saves and I have to start over? I am using steam. Thanks.
you'll be fine, usually the patches are save game friendly. But I'd suggest wait till you see feedback on the forum as sometimes rule changes can shift the balance a bit too much
Give germany the ability to built small units! (Maybe after 1943)
In the first Winter the army group Center built the ski bataillon "Schlebrügge". This is only a support unit.
At the moment as the germans it is like reading a book!
If I will be cautious or had not that many casaulties as historic, why I shouldn't bring new units in?
I understand why I shouldn't allow to bring new divisions in, but what is with support units?
Maybe you can limit that.
At the moment, I was pretty carefull with my army and had over 200k men and armament points in the pool and I'm unable to bring that on the field!
Allow me support units like:
- infantery bataillon (or MG/art bataillon)
- artillery bataillon
- anti tank bataillon
and some special air squadrons. (Fighter, Bomber (both), Recon and Air transport).
It is very unrealistic, that I had the resources, the front need it and I couldn't used them!
Okay, why did nobody answer to this?
The problems with the axis allies I understand.
I'd say no to airpower, if the Germans could have built and staffed more Luftwaffe formations I think by 1943 those would have gone to the west. In WiTW, you curse all those planes being 'wasted' in the East.
the small stuff sounds feasible if you had the pools.
The wider point though is that both sides over-recruited into their military to replace losses and harmed their agriculture (esp the Soviets) and industry as a result. So of your 200,000 in the pool and my 1.2m in reality I'd expect a fair number to be drawn back into industry rather than used to generate combat formations?
