How do we currently transport units via air providing there is cargo space in an air-unit?

I know how to set up an air-bridge but i do not know how to transport infantry for example, get them aboard etc. I presume you need the right cargo space to do so, but how do we know how much space is needed and how to actually add units to a air unit is a mystery currently. I was hoping it would be similar to how one adds additional units to a ground Attack by moving units from one panel into another.

If I've read the manual addition right, once you have an active airbridge (they take a turn to set up), you move troops across it with the Strategic Movement order mode. The air units allocated to the air bridge generate air transport points based on their cargo capacity, and logistics across the air bridge expends them just like it would truck or train points. I have not actually tried one yet, though.

What are the differences between a high altitude plane vs a low altitude one? It seems there are more units that are good against low altitude planes than high altitude ones, so why shouldn't I always choose to make level bombers as opposed to tactical bombers?

According to the design log, high altitude aircraft suffer -33% to soft attack and -66% to hard attack, presumably due to the reduced accuracy of bombing from a further distance.

However, as it stands, I don't see any reason to give recon aircraft without ground attack capability the Recon role instead of one of the high-altitude roles, since the recon value appears to be the same either way.

If you read the manual addendum for air forces it's specified that AA units have different attack modifiers to different altitudes.

For example an 88mm AA gun it's good at high altitude, vice-versa a 20mm AA it's much more effective vs low flying planes and cannot do much to high altitude ones, and they have different cover ranges.

I would also wager that recon capabilities are lower at high altitude, but i found no reference to that in the addendum

This should really be mentioned somewhere when assigning a role to a new aircraft. I was wondering about the difference between the bomber types, too.

That should definitely get reduced recon value if it doesn't already.

There's no difference between the level bomber and transporter roles, right? They are just an optional organisation method for the player?

Here's a couple more "nice to have" quality of life suggestions.

- The "replacement troops" screen needs some love. The screen can be quite a lot to scroll through, especially now that the aircraft update added a bunch new unit types. I think two relative small changes could go a long way here:
Make unit types that are missing replacements be displayed at the top of the list. So that you don't have to scroll all the way to the bottom of the screen to make sure you're not missing troops in some category.
Make the "Repl. Troops" button in the right side interface be displayed in a different colour when you're missing troops. For example, in yellow. So that you instantly know if you are missing or not missing any troops without even having to click the button to check.

- The "raise formation" screen currently only lists your air unit types like "recon", "fighter", etc, if you selected a hex that has a good enough air base to house them. So, for example, it won't display fighters if you selected a level 1 airbase, but all your figthers require level 2 airbases. I think this list should display all options, and just tell you that the unit can't be raised on the hex, because of inadequate airbase level, similar to how it tells you something can't be raised because you're missing PP. I think it would be a lot clearer that way. I was confused for a bit just now and thought my fighter models disappeared or something, because they weren't listed (, but it was just because of the airbase level).

- Minor, but the "raise formation" screen could maybe get a separate button for raising air units, instead of having them inside the "independent" list, so that they are easier to find. (The same could be done with navy units in the future.)

- This is also very minor, but in the combat screen, the "switch" button that lets you swap from regular attack to ranged attack, etc, should maybe be replaced with 4 separate buttons that let you swap directly to the mode that you want.


Edit:
Two little things that might be bugs, but aren't a big deal:
- I had my military research council research helicopter engines when I founded the airplane council. Now both of them are researching helicopter engines simultaneously.
- The percentage number on the "raise formation" screen seems to ignore ammo costs. The screen says I have 98% of the resources to build tactical bombers, but when I click on it, it says I actually only have 13%, because they need huge amounts of ammo.

And beta14, some air fixes, but mostly I finished the work on the improved Alien Fauna.

Big thanks once again for all the testing efforts.

Next path will focus on air fixes and finetunings.

Best wishes,
Vic

It means their numbers can increase and once an Alien Fauna Unit reaches a certain size it can split in two.

Hi Bulldog,

please post in the tech forums if possible. But no matter :) do you have an autosave from which this is repeatable? if so please send it to vic@vrdesigns.net

best,
Vic

Hey Vic, some more questions if you don't mind:
Which techs do you need to unlock rocket weaponry and MG cupolas for your air units? I think you should add that to the tech descriptions on the tech tree, if you haven't already.
Can you confirm if high altitude aircraft get a recon malus, like Soar asked above?

As of beta15 the high alt. get a malus. was a good idea.

Rocket weaponry needs the rocketry tech. MG cupolas need Heavy or Very Heavy Aircraft Model Type.

Thanks, Vic. I had assumed the rockets would need the RPG or Guided RPG techs. Would that be a more fitting place for them? I dunno.

Hey Vic, Bvoid above mentioned that he couldn't discover airplanes despite having engines researched in b13 and I just heard from someone else who showed me a screenshot where he has researched propeller engines, but ultra light airplanes are not discoverable. Unless I'm missing something that's required for the discovery of airplane models, it sounds like there's something bugged here.

Now that I think about it, is it possible that ultra light airplanes require you to have ALL the engine techs researched instead of just one of them?

Yes i broke this in recent beta patch trying to allow you to discover it with other techs as well.

Will fix ASAP. probably tomorrow though.

Workaround start on tech level 4.

I think this has been mentioned somewhere else but it would be great to somehow have the ability to change the individual components when designing aircraft rather than needing to start the design process again. Getting the best design is a fairly long process of trial and error at the moment.

Another element I think the game needs is a summary in the Reports of the battles fought - especially in the AI turns but would be great to also be able to review what happened during your turn as well.

As far as balance is concerned I'm wondering if the airforces are a bit OP at the moment. I haven't done extensive testing but it seems the MGs are killing ground targets as effectively as precision bombs.

Hi Das,

Nice to see you checking in. Working on helping with that design process and I agree on the MGs being a bit to effective against ground targets.

More detailed battled reports will have to wait. History does provide the results though.

Best wishes,
Vic
