1) Increaseing attributes. I want to increase the Intelligence of one of my Jocks from 8 to 9. The table says I need 16 DPs to do so, and I have more than that available in the "Other" Category, but when I click the statistic to increse it I get the message "not enough DPs available". What category do DPs for attribute improvements need to come from?
When increasing attributes it will cost the required amount of DPs from ALL 3 experience catagories. So if it says you need 16DPs, then it means 16DPs from each pioliting, combat, and other.
2) How are attack modifiers during the "breaks" in moves handled? For example, if I order a run from hex A to hex B, and then attack immediatly upon completing the move, is my Titan still considered to be Running? What if I order a walk after the run, and then attack? Or how about ordering a turn? So, basically, does it give a better modifier if you order the attack BEFORE ordering the next more?
IF there is an actual 'break' then your titan will be considered to be not moving. (ex. move,call attack, attack,move) However during that break your titan will also be easier to hit by the AI since your not moving (and yes the AI will take advantage of this)
If there is no 'break' you'll not get a better to hit or the AI to get a better shot at you. Ex. Say you have attack set to wait on move, what will happen is that when the move completes, the move screen will be the 1st to pop-up.. If you give it a move order your titan is considered to never have 'stopped' if however, the move completes then you call the attack menu, then go back to the move screen, then there is a 'break' like in the 1st example. If the you order a walk after a run, if follows the same rules, except if the attacks come after the walk order is issued you're 'to-hits' will be modified for a walk instead of a run. So to answer you last question, Yes, you get a better to hit, but the AI can get a better shot at you in return.
3) I have a squad of four Recon titans. I want to set up an "even" battle with four enemy Recon titans. So I set both sides to equal tonnage, but when I go to set the number in the Random squad, my only choices are "1", "2", or "Random" -- all the other numbers are greyed out. Is there any way to ensure I get four Recon titans, rather than two lights, or a medium, or whatever?
Do me a favor... check and see what your total tonnage is.. is it a hair less then 160? and also double-check and make sure that "3" isn't an option... just tried this and I couldn't get it to choose "4" either.. may be a problem if your tonnage is under 160.... Unitil this gets looked into, give the other team a 10% wieght bonus, then choose 4 titans, however there will be a chance that you'll face 3 recons and a light
