If you have the Steam version you can select the Beta under the games Properties.

V1.08.08 Beta February 05, 2016

    New features

      1. Removed the requirement for air groups to have flown 0% miles to participate in airfield bombing, unit bombing and city bombing missions. These missions will now be limited to 3 per hex, with the exception of airfield bombing missions during German June 22nd, 1941 turn. There is still a requirement of having flown 0% miles for air group transfer or move to National Reserve, for air group using non-transport aircraft to participate in a transport mission (as transports, not escorts), and for any air group to participate in a transport mission at night.

      2. Made sure that when attaching support units using the “ASSIGN” function, units from higher level HQ are chosen before units from lower level HQ.

      3. Reworked aircraft support need, so that fighter and transport types have higher support need (as it is now based on maximum of two values: max load and sortie ammo), but other types have lower support need, as multiplier used to calculate need was reduced from 10 to 4.

      4. Updated weather tables, see Appendix A. The rule preventing more than one Snow in December will not apply to Europe weather zone. There will be no mud in July 1941.

      5. Increased the impact of experience during combat, so that units with low experience may fire less.

      6. Final odds will no longer affect losses in battle, or chance to rout.

      7. Retreat losses will be affected by unit’s vehicle shortage, rather than unit’s support squad shortage. The number of support squads in units, and their ratio to other elements, is decided by the TOE and player has no way to affect this, whereas with vehicles there is some measure of control.

      8. It will be now possible for the attacker to lose trucks during post-battle attrition, as well as for the defender to capture some equipment from the attacker.

      9. Victorious side in battle will also suffer post-battle attrition, where some additional elements can be captured, damaged or destroyed, but it will be very light.

      10. It will be now possible for the defender to make a counterattack (when battle was won) or a fighting withdrawal (when battle was lost). In order to execute these maneuvers, average experience of defending units must be higher than average experience of attacking units. The chance to execute a counterattack is then 50 + defender’s average experience - attacker’s average experience, and the chance to execute a fighting withdrawal is 75 + defender’s average experience - attacker’s average experience. If a counterattack is successful, it means attacking forces will suffer losses comparable to normal retreat losses (of course without the impact of rivers, retreating extra hexes, or retreating through ZOC). If a fighting withdrawal is successful, it means defending forces will suffer losses comparable to normal attacker losses (in case of a failed attack, without a counterattack). If such event happens it will be displayed next to “Forces Defending” text, where (C) stands for counterattack, and (W) for fighting withdrawal.

      11. Elements damaged in battle will be presented separately in battle reports instead of half of the number of damaged elements being added to the number of lost elements. The only exception is list of battles in Commander’s Report, where the number of damaged elements will be added to the number of lost elements.

      12. It will be now impossible to disband Army Group/Front HQs, non-Soviet Army HQs, and rail repair unit (FBD/NKPS). Only Soviet SAD and SAB air bases will be disbandable.

      13. Minimum TOE% for HQ units (including air bases and rail repair units) is 50% instead of 20%.

      14. Improved ground element conversion/upgrade/swap procedure to optimize huge armaments drain and general slowness of converting/upgrading/swapping obsolete elements to new elements that are built on-demand (especially those of class infantry and mechanized infantry), causing drop in army’s overall strength. Previously, the procedure attempted to add missing elements as well (up to TOE requirements), which had to be built using armaments and paired with free manpower. This reduced the chance for that operation to happen in case of resource shortages. This was done to make “meaningful” conversions/upgrades/swaps, that wouldn’t be reversed soon because of low element count. However, it was not feasible to, for example, convert all rifle squads in German army in July 1943 this way. The army should be already understrength at this point, and there would be not enough free manpower to refill all units to the maximum of their TOE requirements with rifle squads. Only those squads that are currently present in units should be converted, with minimum armaments and manpower expenditure. So the improved procedure does just that - if current element is out of production, it will only try to convert/upgrade/swap ready elements (with increased chance to happen, most in case of conversions, least in case of swaps).

      15. Automated air group aircraft swaps will not switch Soviet transport and recon groups to U-2 variants.

      16. Building of elements that are expected to be needed will be blocked when there will be more than 100 or more than four weeks worth of production in the active pool.

      17. Improved German and Finnish repair of damaged elements in units by 5%.

      18. It will be now possible to set air groups to “Only upgrade” aircraft change mode, where swaps will be disabled, but automatic upgrades will be allowed.

      19. Super heavy and naval guns will not suffer retreat/withdrawal attrition, and will be repaired with 99% efficiency.

      20. Scenario check utility will report possible errors where non-support units have: a) both delay and frozen larger than 0; b) delay larger than 0 and map location set; c) frozen larger than 0 and no map location set.

      21. Upon loading a saved game for the first time using this version, the game will attempt to clear frozen status of certain units, so they would be useable as intended. One such example is Italian 8th Army and its subordinate units.

      22. Air groups performing transport missions will not lose morale from planes that require maintenance, only from those that perform a crash landing. Such planes will count as reserve now, not damaged.

      23. Air groups will now have a chance to increase their morale by actions other than downing enemy planes. Destroying ground elements, planes on the ground (both with 50% chance), damaging factories, delivering cargo without damaging the plane, and performing successful recon missions (all three with 20% chance) may result in morale increase, though smaller than in case of destroying a plane in the air. Please note, if morale is higher than experience, the chance for growth this way is small.

      24. Aircraft destroyed on the ground will count as ground kills now, not air kills.

      25. Temporarily motorized or entrained units will not be eligible for air transport. Motorized (also temporarily) para units will not be eligible for para drop. Clarification: motorized units were already not eligible for air transport, and loaded para units were not eligible for para drop.

      26. Fort units will be able to resupply up to 100% of their needs, even if outside their HQ’s supply range.

      27. Unit details window will now display second instead of third (in command chain) HQ next to the “OHQ:” label. It will be impossible to reassign unit by clicking that name (which wasn’t highlighted by proper “link” color, but was clickable). OHQ will not be displayed for high command-level HQs, and for units assigned to them (only HHQ, that is HQ they are attached directly to).

      28. Reworked unit and leader reassignment rules, removing possible exploits, and made sure automatic reassignment will follow the same rules as manual reassignment. It will be now impossible to assign corps sized units (combat and rail repair) to corps-level HQs, as well as to reassign army group-level HQs. It will be now possible to reassign units when having 0 AP, provided that reassignment is free (for example down the chain of command), as well as to assign air HQs to high command-level HQs. It will be now impossible to assign units to, or change leaders of frozen or immobile HQs, with the exception of high command, army group, and air army-level HQs. It will be now impossible to reassign support units attached to frozen or immobile units, with the exception of those attached to fort units, as well as high command, army group and air army-level HQs. It will be now impossible to attach more than 8 air bases to German corps-level air HQs, and more than 16 air bases to German army-level air HQs (also, no more than 8 air bases may be assigned to German army-level air HQ directly). Automatic reassignment will now prefer HQs of the same nationality much more than before, and will try to choose HQs with lowest CP load in case multiple HQs of the same level will be in the same range.

      29. Information about air group withdrawal or disbandment will be displayed in hex tooltip, in the same way as for units. To conserve space, information about unit and air group withdrawal or disbandment will be shown only for units and air groups withdrawing or disbanding during the next 30 turns. To compensate, that information will albo be displayed in their respective details windows.

      30. Air base aviation support need (AV) will be displayed in Commander’s Report, in the “SupL” column. It will be now easier to find overloaded air bases.

      31. Units will now be able to upgrade TOE when more than 30 MP from railhead. Units will get a 5% bonus to the basic 20% chance to upgrade TOE for every full month after TOE start date (assuming 6/41 as minimum possible).

      32. When assigning AA unit to Axis-controlled cities, made sure that proper national high command-level HQ unit will be chosen to pull AA units from. For Yougoslavian cities it will be Italian HQ; for Polish, Czech, Bulgarian and Soviet cities it will be German HQ, with the exception of cities that Finland and Rumania can draw manpower from (Karelian and Bessarabian cities).

      33. Impassable hex sides will remain impassable even when ice level will reach 8.

      34. Added several new checks to the editor: SAD/SAB airbases either existing or reinforcing after 2/42; units where majority of support elements is damaged; units having either supply, fuel, ammo or vehicles below 50% of need (75% in case of delayed units). The last two checks apply only to units having more than 5% of TOE.

      35. Added optional ability to the editor’s “Clean Up” function, so that on-map units can be resupplied to 50% of needs (supply/ammo/fuel/vehicles), in the same way as delayed units are resupplied to 75% of needs.

      36. Updated national morale tables, see Appendix B.

      37. Reduced factory evacuation costs by 20% (rounding up). It will be now possible to evacuate factories from cities in enemy ZOC, but the cost to evacuate will be doubled.

      38. Added new ground element type, Heavy Armored Car, with parameters similar to normal Armored Car, but recon value reduced from 4 to 3, CV increased from 4 to 5, and HE as default ammo type.

      39. Leader initiative will be increased by 1 for rolls on behalf of Soviet on-map artillery units that have expended no more than 6 MP this turn. Bear in mind that MP are substracted at start of battle, so the net effect should be that the first attack of an umoved artillery unit will benefit from this bonus. Therefore the chance to pass initiative roll shown in supply details window will include this bonus only for units that have not yet expended a single MP.

      40. Soviet on-map units destroyed after 10/41 (as well as units other than Rifle, Motorized and Tank Divisions destroyed before 11/41) will return as nearly empty reinforcements in 2 to 4 turns. Such units will keep their name, TOE, corps affiliation (in case of divisions), and component division names (in case of corps). Their morale, experience, and win/loss counters will be reset to default values. This process will cost AP (though lack of points will not prevent units from returning): 15 for Corps, 5 for Divisions and Brigades being part of a Corps, 3 for other Brigades and 1 for other units. Forts, Partisans, Airborne, Mountain, Naval, NKVD Border Regiments, as well as Soviet Rumanian, Polish, and Czech units will not be eligible to return.

      41. Destroyed units of Axis allies, as well as all Axis support units will return as German on-map units do. On-map units will be frozen on refit for 3 turns with MAX TOE set to 50. Usually they will be placed in westernmost city having the same nationality. Support units will arrive at their national HQ with MAX TOE set to 50. There will be a message in the logistics log for every such unit.

      42. MAX TOE setting will now be visible for frozen or withdrawing units in unit details window.

      43. Added new ground element type, Medium Flak/AT, with parameters similar to normal Medium Flak, but not treated as “rear area gun” (which reduces losses, but also the ability to fire on enemy elements), and AP as default ammo type.

      44. It will be now possible to use light armored cars in place of armored cars (and vice versa).

      45. No side will call reserve units to join combat if the expected final odds are outside 1:5 to 5:1 range.

    Bug fixes

      1. Fixed a bug where German support units attached to HQs and sent into combat were suffering from 22 June 1941 Turn Surprise Rules, which negatively affected their experience.

      2. Fixed a bug where it was possible to see morale and percent of miles flown for enemy air groups, provided the air base they were attached to had detection level 5 or better.

      3. Fixed a bug where it was impossible for the defender to capture attacker’s damaged elements.

      4. Fixed a bug where an airbase must not have moved to be usable for purposes of airhead supply distribution. It should be usable even if moved, provided it stays in a hex that was under friendly control at start of turn (like for other kinds of airdrops).

      5. Fixed a bug where 50% of cargo delivered to an airbase for purposes of airhead supply distribution was converted to fuel, even if units didn’t want that much fuel, and thus it was not delivered (wasted).

      6. Fixed a bug where withdrawing units that had to remain on map to receive replacements were always reattached to O.K.H. instead to their national HQ.

      7. Fixed a bug where it was possible to attach Corps HQ units to RHG HQ unit.

      8. Fixed some bugs related to U-2 aircraft in transport and recon variants (air group type matching, proper night fly selection).

      9. Fixed a bug where too many (possibly all) support squads were converted to rifle squads under certain circumstances, like newly arrived shell units that have just received their first replacements. Limited support squad conversion to 10% of those ready.

      10. Fixed a bug where all units were assumed to be on railhead, in refit mode and set to 100% TOE when calculating the number of elements that were expected to be needed. This resulted in too many armaments spent on elements that were later not used.

      11. Fixed a bug where Axis rail modifier was affecting units twice when it comes to receiving replacements.

      12. Fixed a bug where attacking air groups were not suffering morale losses from downed planes as did defending air groups (in air-to-air combat).

      13. Fixed a bug where unit’s HQ was invisible in unit details window for frozen units.

      14. Fixed a bug in the replacement system, where it sent back unmatched elements, even if they were required to fulfill group (for example AT gun need, with light, medium and heavy AT guns counted as one) need.

      15. Fixed a typo in Commander’s Report (“Air Comnand”).

      16. Fixed a bug in the editor’s “Clean Up” function, which reduced delayed units to 75% of needs (if they were above) instead of resupplying them to that level (if they were below).

      17. Fixed a bug where it was possible to change MAX TOE of partisan units.

      18. Fixed a bug causing memory corruption during unit merging.

      19. Fixed a bug which prevented upgrades of super heavy artillery elements (only swaps should be blocked).

      20. Fixed a bug where victory conditions were not reset properly for campaign games, resulting in “Alt VC260” games still requiring 290 VP for decisive Axis victory.

    Scenario changes

      1. Fixed permanently frozen Italian 8th Army units in multiple scenarios, as well as some Hungarian and Rumanian units (some were disabled).

      2. Synchronized setup of several Rumanian and Hungarian units between several scenarios.

      3. Fixed setup of Rumanian transport air groups.

      4. Fixed wrong size of Rumanian air units in “Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign” and “Winter 1942-43”.

      5. Fixed reinforcements arriving without adequate supplies, fuel, ammo, and/or vehicles.

      6. Altered XII Corps disband date to 10/44 (destroyed 7/44 during Bagration, survivors used to form 6th Panzer Army, which became active in 11/44 in the west).

      7. Altered XXX Corps disband date to 11/44 (destroyed 8/44 during Bagration, reformed 12/44, and used in the west).

      8. Altered XIII Corps disband date to 12/44 (destroyed 7/44 during Bagration, survivors used to form Grossdeutschland Korps, which became active in 1/45; XIII Corps reformed 1/45, and used in the west).

      9. Removed misplaced 122mm field guns from Soviet rifle divisions in scenarios starting in the summer of 1941.

      10. Fixed Rumanian corps/army artillery setup.

      11. Updated Italian factories in various scenarios, to work with new build limits and upgrade paths.

      12. Adjusted dates of unit arrivals/withdrawals in various scenarios, according to data supplied by Peter Zimmermann (thanks!).

      13. Switched Hanko Rifle Brigade to correct TOE in Road to Leningrad.

      14. Changed Führer Begleit, Führer Grenadier and von Werthern units to Axis Elite and correct TOE in several scenarios.

      15. Added disbands for various Panzer Brigades (101st, 102nd, 103rd, 104th, 109th, 110th, Gross SS), which were merged into other units in late 1944. In some smaller scenarios they withdraw instead.

      16. Rebuilt Feldherrnhalle and Kurmark Panzergrenadier Divisions according to new TOE (more Panzers, less StuGs). In some smaller scenarios they withdraw instead of disbanding.

      17. L.A.H., Das Reich, Totenkopf, and Wiking SS Motorized/Panzergrenadier Divisions changed to unit-specific TOEs in all scenarios.

      18. Disabled East Prussian Army in some scenarios, where 2nd Army is present (was renamed in 4/45).

      19. Added SdKfz-251 Panzerwerfer factory in Hannover in certain scenarios starting 5/44 or later.

      20. Degraded supply status of some HQs in several late war scenarios.

      21. Replenished active and reinforcing units to minimum supply levels in all scenarios.

      22. Fixed NW map limit in Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign.

      23. Changed Axis pilot quality to 75, and Soviet pilot quality to 60 in Stalingrad to Berlin Campaign, Winter 1942-43, and Red Army Resurgent 42-43.

So how does the Soviet unit auto re-build work now????

Im abit confused by the wording of the change.

As it says they automatically rebuild but cost AP......but a lack of AP wont stop the rebuild by the wording.

So basically this wont allow the soviet player to stockpile any AP if they are still losing units??? even if I don't want junk units re-built?

It is more important to disable AP crunch strategy, while rebuilding of Red Army 1.0 to Red Army 2.0 should cost AP, without the ability to reduce those costs by having the option to sacrifice certain units.

Great work Morvael I especially like the Axis Allies being allowed to rebuild it always seemed strange that they would just be destroyed & not replaced.
So when will .09 be out? (just joking about .09)

Got first turn in with new patch...love that airpower is much more useful....but maybe to much....time will tell....over 1 turn I can now inflict upwards of 2k losses on a stack from airstrikes...esp if you bomb, attack, push-back, bomb again, push back again....bomb some more....seems like it might get abit overpowering in the long game.

Thanks for the update.

Further to the Auto Rebuild change,

1. I assume it is only for destroyed units and not disbanded?

2. and if many of my units are destroyed in one or two turns does this mean I could go a couple of turns without Admin points as they have all been used on auto rebuild?

33. Impassable hex sides will remain impassable even when ice level will reach 8.

Not clear for me => are they still impassable with ice level 9 or 10?

14. Improved ground element conversion/upgrade/swap procedure to optimize huge armaments drain and general slowness of converting/upgrading/swapping obsolete elements to new elements that are built on-demand (especially those of class infantry and mechanized infantry), causing drop in army’s overall strength

great!

40. Soviet on-map units destroyed after 10/41 (as well as units other than Rifle, Motorized and Tank Divisions destroyed before 11/41) will return as nearly empty reinforcements in 2 to 4 turns.

Not sure if I understood well=> every unit destroyed past 10/1941 will return as an empty shell. If so, it's a huge change! No more AP crunch fear for the russians in 1942! Encirclements are less disastrous


Above all thanks for the continuing work on this amazing game!!!!

It's already in the works, and two biggest things I wanted to change are working. Took me three days to do it, but it was worth it. Proper allocation of manpower including Hiwis (so that no longer a number of men equal to Hiwi pool remains unused after replacement phase), and replacements priority (internal, not adjustable, but making sure you get more rifle squads and tanks to the front rather than support squads, which were using too many people for little gain). Denniss is also improving scenarios, making hundreds of changes to increase historical accuracy.

Replacement priority effects:
ELEMENT                     DATE    POOL   READY DAMAGED  WANTED   BUILT    CONV   ADDED    BACK    LOST
Rifle Squad 39              1/39     136   31378    2312    6176    1511       0    1647     897     222

That should result in higher air losses, unless your opponent is already on his knees. In that case air power should be devastating. We can always tweak down efficiency of unit bombing :)

1) Yes
2) No, it takes from what is available and new turn's AP are added later, so in worst case you should start with one turn's worth of APs (50 or 60).

There was/is already a rule handling Rifle, Motorized and Tank Divisions destroyed before 11/41 (Rifle Division returns as Rifle Division, Motorized Division returns as Rifle Division, Tank Division returns as Tank Brigade; with no AP cost). That rule is kept unchanged, thus the exception in the new rule. In or after 11/41 all units return in the same way (with no TOE change, shorter return time, and with an AP cost).

Thank for clarifying things.

So what about units destroyed in, lets say, March 1943? Will they also return?

I see a way to circumnavegate the system in order to not pay APs: expend them all, or as many as you can, before end turn. Or are APs taken away before you get to play a new turn?

All units return. You can be now a bit more bold.

Yes, if you will expend all APs from turn to turn you will get free rebuilds. The only people that can be hurt are those who stockpile 500 APs to build 50 rifle corps on first turn of 1943.

Why not to take that AP´s from future AP´s instead of actual AP´s? For example if i have 30 AP saved for next turn and i lose a corp(15 AP) instead of hurting my saved AP 30-15=15 why not to take from my future 50 AP 50-15=35 so it represent that STAVKA has needed these AP point to create the unit.

And if building new units cost overpass this 50 future AP´s no more units will be created until next turn and you wont have AP points.

I dont know if i have explain myself clearly

Besides technical difficulty to do so, the idea was not to limit the ability to rebuild units, because if you lost dozens of them on one turn it means you are in trouble and it means you really need them to come back ASAP. And I think stockpiling APs should not be possible, as they are better representing day-to-day work of the general staff, doing something all the time, and not staying on holidays for two months and then doing everything overnight. So I think this is a very good solution, that doesn't hurt anyone except AP savers.

Thats a fair answer, well thought, with my idea we will have the same ap fear of no lossing units because we wont have ap´s in the future turns.

Thanks morvael and one more question.

It was said that casualtiesin battle will be increased in this version, it is still true?

I like this - it should encourage players to take risks from 1942 onwards with their mobile units. Those were shredded and rebuilt on a regular basis and I'd rather pay the 20 AP for the corp rather than 15 AP for the brigades, wait two turns etc.

I'm also pretty relaxed at the end of the hoarding idea - I always regarded APs as a crude measure of short term capacity in any case

I think some TOEs were changed to use more StuGs, but Denniss will know better.
emergency HQs? Maybe I was kidding myself but I thought that got the green light?

1.08.05 caused a general rise in losses, but it was too much from the point of generated resources (especially ARM), so they had to return more or less to pre-1.08.05 levels. Also, the ratio of losses was wrong, close to 1:1 due to high retreat losses (which were/are seen on this forum for a long time as major deficiency of the combat system). So I found a way to mitigate these for some groups of units and tests determined the best way to implement these (requiring experience superiority). Bear in mind in late war these will actually help Soviet Guards, Tank and Mechanized formations, as they will be superior to German infantry, and it will be they who will suffer less losses, very useful while doing hasty attacks.

Looking at treatment of wounded by the Germans it seems that most were evacuated to rear areas or out of theater very quickly. I often noticed and exploited to some extent, the fact that multiple attacks on a hex were a more effective manpower killer than a single successful attack. Would it be possible for retreated units to lose only the damaged units from the last attack?

Soviets won't be deprived of APs, since they will get those units rebuilt either for free (if you spend all your APs on the go, like I did every turn, changing generals, upgrading planes, building units and reassigning support, doing HQBUs) or for a half price you would normally pay (if you stockpiled APs for ahistorical mass conversion of rifle divs to corps on a certain date). All in all it's a massive reduction in AP expenditure, especially that this is tied to the fact that it happens only when German destroy your units. Which means you are in trouble, which means you need those APs for something else probably like leaders and reassignments to fix the front. It's a boon to see those units rebuilt for free. It removes another problem people had with the system - the so called AP crunch strategy. It didn't work IRL for the Germans, since Soviets were able to always rebuild destroyed units, it was a question of manpower and armaments, not some virtual APs. Alternative was to grant APs for destroyed units, but it offered too much freedom - you could spend them on something else, unrelated to army structure (and there was risk of losing APs due to 500 limit)

I'm reassured to understand that the Russian will not start a turn with no AP due to the game prioritising unit replacement over the othe admin tasks you mention.

This still leaves the problem of inflated OoBs which greatly favour the Axis, unresolved, actually exacerbated. I doubt that many Russian players will survive to derive any possible benefit from the attack changes in late game. Time will tell.

1) No, there was no work done related emergency HQs. I'm not even fully aware what you mean by that. I think it's related to creation of custom HQ units at will in a limited scope (and to replicate late war German OOB from the 1941 starting one, which differs a lot if you compare GC 1941 with GC 1944). Sadly (?) this will not happen.

2) Yes, it's a problem of the model where damaged elements stay/attack/defend with a unit instead of being counted as evacuated (there is just one number of damaged elements, be they damaged earlier or during current combat), thus they may suffer losses multiple times, where they should be at risk only once. Sadly no way to fit in this without invalidating current data structure and reworking thousands of lines of code.

3) You should always see at least 50/60 AP at start of your turn, whatever number of units you lost during enemy turn.

We'll see how the "inflation" ends up, tweaking combat losses up is no problem. Remember Axis now start with 75 000 trucks less, and there are even talks of reworking the Axis rail penalty in .09 to make resupply and getting replacements even harder, especially during blizzard. What I want to see is to have strong Axis units, but more often in low supply, so that their potential is not usable in full along the front. A vicious attack dog, but on a short leash, so to speak.

Hi M, more good work, as usual.

Somebody with "say" should get the "P" suspension lifted. He can sort this out.

You could, old version, solve the "AP crunch" problem by using the AP's for brigades. Build to about 200 total, before summer '41, then you can make them into RD in May and have about 10 armies all trained up and ready to use.
