What To Expect In UV v1.11 Patch

Post by David Heath »

Hi Guys

Here is what to expect in v1.11. We are testing it now and God willing we should have it available sometime today or tomorrow. This will not be the last patch and I am sure Mike Wood will be working on release soon. We are releasing this patch version so soon after v1.10 because we wanted to correct the early retiring bug we created in v1.10. Since we had other fixes and enhancements we had finished we decided to include them in this patch. This list is not final until the v1.11 goes out the door but it gives everyone a good idea whats going on.


1) Text errors “Sever” changed to “Severe” and “Emplosion” changed to “Explosion”. - Corrected.

2) PT Boats and Barges when in a task force that is disbanded, sometimes disappear from the port in which they should be located. - Fixed.

3) PT Boats and Barges sometimes cannot be transferred from one task force to another. - Fixed.

4) Bombers flying too high for CAP can no longer be attacked by that CAP. A text message appears so saying.

5) Aircraft can be forced to fly higher than maximum altitude by selecting a group with a higher maximum altitude and giving a “Set All” order. Fixed. Aircraft are no longer allowed to fly higher than maximum altitude.

6) Experience for flying supply transport and troop transport missions has been reduced.

7) Multiple messages concerning interception of air transport have been removed. Now, one message per air group is displayed, instead of one per aircraft.

8) Reinforcement air groups appear in the assigned location, even if it is held by the enemy. Fixed.

9) The player is now notified by a text message on the lower left of the screen, when air groups arrive if playing against the computer or when the computer plays against itself.

10) Reinforcement ground appear in the assigned location, even if it is held by the enemy. Fixed.

11) The player is now notified by a text message on the lower left of the screen, when ground units arrive if playing against the computer or when the computer plays against itself.

12) Hex 19,30 is shown to be a shallow water hex when F2 is pressed, but is not a water hex. Fixed.

13) On the task force orders screen the number of hexes the task force may travel at normal speed is now displayed after the “Moves” data on the upper left of the pop-out box. If the value is green, it means that the task force commander feels he will have enough fuel to go to the assigned location at normal speed and return. If there is no assigned location, the value may be written in red, as he has no idea where he is going. If the task force travels at high speeds, such as in the case of a bombardment task force or fast transport task force or if the task force engages in combat, this indicator may be inaccurate.

14) A bug which prevented task forces from retiring to home base, after completing a mission has been fixed. There will still be times when a bombardment, surface action or fast transport task force can end up in harms way, as the dawn arises, however. These include the task force being low on fuel or if the task force spends too much time engaging enemy vessels at the target location or if the “Do not retire” option is selected. The player might note that some task forces will not be able to approach closely enough to attempt the mission. These would include bombardment, surface action or fast transport task forces with the “Retirement Allowed” option selected, which do not have sufficient speed to make it into and out of the target area in one night. These will hover at the best range they can reach and await further orders. Ships of speed less than 25 knots will frequently have this problem.

Indeed it is great work. Thank you very much and I was happy to read the new very positive reviews of UV. Lets hope it shows in sales which I hope has been good so far anyway. BTW: There was talk about another chat with GG himself because the transcript was lost but I have heard nothing of it since.

Regular transport TF's not retiring

Post by Sinjen »

Will your regular Transport TF's retire from enemy carrier and surface action groups? Also will they return to base after they finish unloading or sit there until you manually give them orders to return?

Your regular transport TF's blundering into spotted enemy combat TF's is a gamebreaker. In the current build they will just sail right into the hands of a waiting enemy combat TF like lambs to a slaughter and then anchor. So far myself and my opponents have lost 19-23 ships each in one game day due to this bug.

Regards,

Sinjen

ps-see my post in the bug forum if you want a more complete description.

David,

You're going to have to watch yourselves, or our expectations will soon become impossible to match! ;) :D

Seriously though, I'm extremely impressed. The level of support demonstrated by all of you at Matrix and 2by3 has reached what I believe should be the standard by which all other companies define their own efforts. :)

Retirement...

Post by Erik Rutins »

Sinjen,

Yes, all aspects of the retirement bug introduced in 1.10 appear to be fixed. We've been banging on this and nothing has broken. If anything, it seems slightly better than 1.00 with the new fuel counter and such. :)

It's looking very probable that we'll release this tonight.

Regards,

- Erik

One question : where did you hear about the spelling errors in #1?
Last time I checked, the forums were messed up. ;)

David and all of Matrix,

Thanks for not just working on and releasing a patch so quickly, but for keeping all of us informed on what is happening. We can wait and put up with a lot when we know things are being actively worked on and when to expect a fix. You guys do a great job at this and it is VERY MUCH APPRECIATED!!! :)

Then you go above and beyond by adding some of the other goodies listed. Way to go!!

David, what have you promised Mike Wood to make him work so hard and so well??!!?!!:D

All PBEM games will work fine even if started in v1.00 or 1.10.

Enjoy.

Gentlemen. I predict lots of wealth for you in the future. The level of support I have seen is unsurpassed in my some 20 years of computer gaming(yes Im really old). I will have very little problem considering the purchase of your games in the future. In the old days if it was a microprose game I purchased because I knew the product would be high quality. You guys have surpassed that. Excellant work!

Rob, as you mentioned Microprose: they were very good with their flightsims, but do you remember their naval simulation TF1942? :) It was one of the most bug-ridden games I have ever come accross, and I had been so looking forward to it!

Saved Games

Post by NorthStar »

This might be answered in another thread: If so, I apologize.

I see that e-mail games started under version 1.0 can continue under 1.10 and 1.11. Is the same true for saved games against the computer?
