War In the East 2 New Patch v1.02.11

Post by Roby7979 »

War In the East 2
Changes in v1.02.11 (all changes since v1.01.09).


New Features and Rule Changes

IMPORTANT NOTE: All save game and scenario files created with 1.02.06 or later versions may only be loaded with 1.02.06 or a later version. Versions prior to 1.02.06 may not load these newer save game or scenario files. Old saves and scenarios may be loaded with this and newer versions.

-New rule - A mission generated by a ground attack air directive that is performing an attack on a unit has a chance of having the mission converted to an interdiction attack. The chance of switching to interdiction increases with the number of movement points expended by the unit in the unit’s prior turn, and increases against units smaller than divisions.

-Changes/Clarifications with flak
Clarification – A ground element can be counted multiple times in a single battle report in the list of anti-aircraft elements. This is because the attack is broken up into ‘flights’, and each flight has the chance of being engaged by a ground element. So, a ground element could fire at 6 different flights and be counted 6 times.
Non-flak elements were being added into the anti-aircraft count in cases when they should not have been. This was a display only issue as they weren’t actually adding to the anti-aircraft value firing at the aircraft. This has been fixed.
Non-flak elements will never fire at aircraft flying into or through and adjacent hex. This was rare before, but has been removed entirely.
Increased the importance of aircraft armor in mitigating damage from flak.
Reduced op losses for day missions and ground support. Also, fixed the function that was supposed to credit some aircraft damaged by flak, that crashed during landing routine, as flak losses. This was incorrectly always counting them as op losses.

-AFV losses in combat were tweaked down slightly.

-Production of guns with build limits was limited when the amount in the pool exceeded 10x the build limit. This limit has been changed to 100x the build limit.

-Increased op losses for night missions for pilots with experience less than 70 experience, with those under 60 experience experiencing roughly double the op losses previously experienced.

-Reduced night bombing accuracy by air units that do not have navigational aids (currently only Allies in War in the West have them).

-Until the Axis control a port on the Caspian Sea, every Caspian Sea hex will automatically receive 20 interdiction points at the end of each air execution phase (enough to make the hexes Soviet controlled).

-Made changes to the layout of the right side of the campaign victory screen.

-Editor - Set hex sea zone and weather zone values as fully generic.

-Editor – Hooked up ability to set an event to activate in the air planning phase (actually executes at the end of the logistics phase).

-This version includes the War in the West editor manual in the /Manuals folder. Although there are many differences between the WitW and WitE2 editors, the WitW editor manual is a useful guide to understanding the WitE2 editor.

-Added new preference screen items:
Show videos – Defaulted on, this allows you to turn off opening and end game videos.
Export Battle Details (CSV) – Defaulted off, when on it will generate a report In the /logs folder inside the save directory for the game. The report will contain the high detail level messages from combat.
Pre-logistics Auto Save – Defaulted off, when on a save will automatically be created just before the start of each player’s logistics phase.

-Lowered the chance of intercepting transports missions that are flying behind friendly lines (further from the front the lower the chance of intercepts).

-Rule Clarification – It is possible for vehicles to transport freight from one depot to another depot that is not connected to the rail grid. This is generally rare, but possible.

-Added Living Manual v1.09.pdf file in the \Manuals folder. This is up to date with changes through game version 1.02.08.

-For a unit on the map to disband or be sent to a theater box, it must now be more than 8 hexes from enemy units. To be able to send a unit to a TB, it must also be on a connected rail hex. Other limitations/restrictions re disbanding and transferring to a theater box remain unchanged.

-Multiple changes to Assault HQ rules:
The command point multipliers for HQs in Assault HQs are now:
Date Axis Army Axis Corps // Soviet Front Soviet Army&Corps
1941 1.34 1.17 // no bonus no bonus
1942 1.34 1.17 // 1.10 1.10
1943 1.34 1.17 // 1.34 1.25
1944 1.34 1.17 // 1.67 1.34
1945 1.34 1.17 // 1.67 1.34
Limits on maximum number of Assault HQs are now:
Date Axis Soviet
1941 4 2
1942 3 2
1943 3 3
1944 2 4
1945 2 4

-Changes made to ground combat. Increased the range at which the opening direct fire shots are fired, while increasing the amount of fire at these longer ranges. Increased the number of rounds of combat between opening range and 50 yard combat. Opening ranges will be longer for clear and less dense terrain. Net effect of combat changes increases overall losses slightly. First adjusted in 1.01.15 it was modified slightly in 1.02.08 to reduce the chance that HE fire by non-infantry type weapons will gain extra shots during direct fire phases.

-When captured, airbases will have their ground element experience seeded at the level of the owning sides air national morale.

-Now when a corps is created using 2 or 3 guards units, if an appropriate guards OB is not available, the newly formed corps will not be a guards unit. A data change in this version delays the first available Guards Tank Corps to December 1942, and the first available Guards Mechanized Corps to November 1942. So merging guards brigades before these dates will not result in a guards corps.

-Top bar now responds to display scaling setting.

-Blocked FBD/NKPS units from being able to be temporarily motorized.

-Adjusted the way limited freight national supply sources are used in non-campaign scenarios. The net effect will be the NSS’s in non-campaign scenarios will be more easily accessed for freight shipments to depots.

-Isolated forts with ‘Partisan’ in the name will not automatically become depleted when not stacked with a combat unit.

-Rule Clarification – Air Superiority and Naval Patrol missions always fly first, irrespective of priority settings.

-Rule Clarification – The intensity level setting in the AD creation right panel, actually represents the current air doctrine setting. Changing this for an AD, actually changes the air doctrine setting to match for the current air command, and changes all similar ADs. If the player wishes to change one AD only, they should change the strike num setting.

-Reduced the chance of indirect fire disruption hits.


Bug Fixes and AI Improvements
Escorts are not flying in ground support air missions. Fixed.
Vehicles in isolated depots are being returned to the pool in exchange for freight. If enough are sent back, this can make the pocket think it is in airhead supply. Isolated trucks should not be returning vehicles. Fixed.
Soviet Romanian HQs are being disbanded automatically for the human player. Fixed.
AI - Axis AI moves a unit into an enemy controlled hex without taking control of the hex, and is then destroyed. Fixed.
Display of load outs - Air group loadouts listed in CR don't show the same as in the air unit detail screen
CR screen was very slow to respond in certain coming expansion scenarios. Fixed.
Heavy tank regiments are not built with guards designation. Fixed.
Editor - Button to cancel withdrawals for units in the editor does not work. Fixed.
Editor – Can’t change sea zone of some ports in scenarios. Fixed.
Support units are not being committed to battle during the first turn of a scenario if the first player is played by the AI. Fixed.
Dynamic hex sea zone value is not changed when changing sea zone in editor, so it keeps displaying old value. Fixed.
Show AD targets rollover text is incorrect on the last button which should read Active Targets Only. Fixed.
Metrics screen logistics phase losses are always showing 0 in Metrics. Fixed.
Fixed several bugs with the campaign city bonus victory points.
AI – During first turn AI script, support units are not getting included in combats. Fixed.
Fighters that are not assigned to a non-ground support AD are no longer auto-intercepting enemy ground support . Fixed.
Frozen units can be transferred to TBs. Fixed.
There is a way to transfer aircraft without miles travelled being charged. Fixed.
It was found that one of the functions that calculates the range between hexes could return invalid ranges. This was found when a unit at the corner of an air superiority box was not properly covered by the air superiority fighters. Fixed.
The CR/Equipment/Aircraft compare window was not scaling. Fixed.
Text in the Battle Report Detail/Air Combat tab is smaller than other text. Fixed.
Under some circumstances, when the Astrakhan to Baku rail is cut, a large portion of the Soviet Caucasus became isolated when it shouldn’t. Fixed.
When clicking on the show combat recon button, the show city recon graphics are shown at the top of the screen (instead of show combat rec on). Fixed.
When pressing shift-t repeatedly, it only toggles between combat and city recon and does not turn off the show recon. Fixed.
Air unit range circles are not correct. Fixed.
Airbase receives 2.49 million tons of freight/supplies. Fixed.
4 81mm mortars cause 3k kills. Fixed.
AI – Improved a move to routine used by attacking AI which will make it more likely to attack units in the way.
AI – Improved filling gaps in the defensive line.
Ai – Improved Axis AI line forming in first winter (41/42).
Escorts not flying in ground support (usually when enemy has ground support turned off). Fixed.
Cavalry units are being allowed to temporarily motorize. Fixed.
Movement FOW turned on is preventing movement over a ferry hex into an enemy controlled hex with no enemy units. Fixed.
Some units have their transfer flag set during a scripted withdrawal, and it is never turned off. This causes them to show incorrectly in the CR screen as still being in transfer. Fixed.
Very weak units being displaced while isolated could shatter or rout out of a pocket instead of surrendering. Fixed.
AFVs could sometimes return fire at a range greater than their weapon’s range. Fixed.
Units lose lots of ammo and in some cases their ammo on hand goes negative. Fixed.
Rollover text over Command Efficiency button is wrong. Fixed.
Stacks with X for CV value have attacker CV value showing instead of MPs. Fixed.
When creating new Soviet units in the reserve, they could get a name already used by an active unit. Fixed.
AI controlled city forts are participating in attacks. Fixed.
Soviet AI puts NKPS units in Rostov city fort. Fixed.
Axis Ai attaches 2 German infantry regiments to Soviet 6th Army. Fixed.
Axis AI changes human Batumi to export port. Fixed.
Non-isolated support units in HQs are destroyed if they are in a hex where combat takes place and they lose the combat. Fixed.
In some cases, units in isolated hexes that were able to trace to isolated Kronstadt were displacing out of the pocket, instead of surrendering. Fixed.
There were cases where Assault HQs, or HQs under Assault HQs could be overloaded or outside of their command range, and the units would still receive bonuses of being under an Assault HQ. Fixed.
Incorrect/phantom ground losses are reported during air transport of a units. Fixed.
Temp motorized unit that rallies from rout has 32470 MPs. Fixed.
Using x from city detail to send unit back to HQ causes it to be effectively destroyed. Fixed
Clicking on airbase in AOG right panel list causes air unit detail display to be hidden under window. Fixed
Game crashes during ground combat. Fixed.
AI – AI warps units into an isolated pocket. Fixed.

Data/scenario changes generally require a new game, the rest should work fine on an existing one.

-Changes made to ground combat. Increased the range at which the opening direct fire shots are fired, while increasing the amount of fire at these longer ranges. Increased the number of rounds of combat between opening range and 50 yard combat. Opening ranges will be longer for clear and less dense terrain. Net effect of combat changes increases overall losses slightly. First adjusted in 1.01.15 it was modified slightly in 1.02.08 to reduce the chance that HE fire by non-infantry type weapons will gain extra shots during direct fire phases.

-Reduced the chance of indirect fire disruption hits.

If you mean can you lock the generic data in a scenario, the answer is no, not yet. That's being worked on now. The editor at release allowed you to modify most things, but you'd have to change the generic data to have them stick in your scenarios.

Ok thank you for clarifying. could you give an idea of how significant the the change to disruption is or is it more complicated than a change in a single value and hard to tell?

It was a significant reduction in indirect disruption and improved results in our testing, but you'll need to try it to see how you like it.

Just upgraded to v1.02.11. Couldn't find the WitW editor manual as suggested.

I upgraded directly from v.1.01.10. Will this cause any problem in the upgrade?

It was a significant reduction in indirect disruption and improved results in our testing, but you'll need to try it to see how you like it.

Probably like it overall, it seems more dynamic than before, and fortifications and terrain seem to have a larger impact on combat and HPE than before.

However, the SIG33 guns seem to be nerfed too hard. They're barely doing anything on offense now. 50mm mortars have also dropped off the map, and are barely firing and almost always hitting 0 times in combat. The mortar issue was present in the last beta patch too.

These results are from about 30 combats in august of '41. A typical one is shown below with SiG's outperforming the average in this one.

IMPORTANT NOTE: All save game and scenario files created with 1.02.06 or later versions may only be loaded with 1.02.06 or a later version. Versions prior to 1.02.06 may not load these newer save game or scenario files. Old saves and scenarios may be loaded with this and newer versions.

For computer dummies like me can someone confirm what I am about say in layman's terms

My current game is the official patch v.1.01.09
So download new patch v.1.02.11

The saved game will run and be playable

However I don't get all the new benefits of the new patch, only some of them.

Bottom line the saved game will still play correct


I have a ARR going also its turn 4 and I have a lovely huge pocket of Trapped Soviet troops, I really don't want to start from scratch [:D]

I will settle for some new benefits than all.

How is it for "tougher" combats ? I can get that in a 1:8 combat in August 1941 (maybe a hasty attack ?), the 50mm do not get much action.

It's more like the Soviets were steamrolled by a marching army, with artillery batteries doing the long range work before Infantry does the mopping up.


It would be interesting to see how it goes for "hold" results, as well.

Data changes would not affect ongoing games, just changes to the game executable with fixes/improvements to combat etc will affect ongoing games.
