Thanks Steve for your prompt reply. The free camera is great and very helpful. It adds a lot to the game.
Manual: "Note: During the battle and when the air support
becomes available, the type of air support is stated
on a text line in the Combat Messages and when you
hover over the air support icon in the tool bar"
Playing the allies, I hovered the mouse over the air support icon when the game told me I had air support. But there was nothing to tell me what type of plane it was. In the messages the type of plane was given.
From the manual:
A unit with a radio is always in communication with
the company commander and, thus, gets the command
bonus from the company commander unit at all times."
Command bonus is for morale, right? Does the command bonus mean more than just a moral boost? If not, it seem kind of strange that a unit far from the company commander gets a morale boost just by having a radio. But maybe that was your intention. "Company commander" applies to any command unit in the game, right? That would mean platoon leaders give the bonus to units with the radio, right?
The manual says: "tall buildings allow clear fields of fire over
low-level obstructions" How do I know if a building is "tall" or not tall?
Are mortars more accurate with closer range?
In older versions of CC tanks moving fast could get immobilized in the woods. Do vehicles in this version get immobilized simply by driving?
If units dig in, will those foxholes and gun emplacements be there to use in a subsequent battle on the same map?
If my units can dig in, does that mean even more concealment for tanks and guns that start the game in ambush mode?
As an allied player, I completely destroyed the enemy as soon as I got to the bocage in the Normandy campaign. Does that mean the campaign is over? I wasn't the host so I don't know.
In that campaign my opponent's reputation went very bad as seen on the briefing screen along with strength, supply, etc. Does that have any influence?
I'm thinking you will one day use this basic game engine to make more games like it. I wish you would make a version that could connect 2 computers directly as older versions did. The internet was not necessary for those version to have 2 players competing. That would make it easier to use at war-game conventions and could help sell the game.
One of the problem I've had trying to play ops and campaigns is the game will kick us out into the lobby right after the battle when we move forward to the next. Sometimes the battle that was finished is not saved. It seems this difficulty may be limiting the number of players I'm seeing in the lobby.
I'm playing and enjoying this game a lot now. I just wish there were more people playing it.
