    Going into the river

    Post by KurtTank on Sat Jul 11, 2015 8:35 pm

    Why does the AI allow units like the Sd.Kfz. 251 to go into the river? Even tanks seem to go there sometimes. The last mission 1/2 of my Sd.Kfz. 251's were under the water! Any ideas? I have Follow orders and Do as I do checked, but that seems to apply only to my platoon of tanks.

    Sometimes it happens, especially if the hull length more than river width.

    What is the mission name?

    The river is pretty wide where they all went in. Sometimes I see them go along the shore, sometimes they cross at the shallow crossing, sometimes they are blown there, sometimes they drive in themselves.

    Mission is my own that I'm building, "Advance Along the River". Video is here:

    It's hard to say smth. without have a look on the script. U may upload here a mission archive:
    - double click on "0_create_new_missn.bat"
    - select mission
    - pack
    - select folder where to save
    - save
    Then give me a link. I'll have a look.

    BTW
    Nice video! I think u've a good PC. Do u've skill how to put in subtitles in the video?

    Thanks! My old hard drive crashed in February, so I updated to a newer, faster model that actually cost significantly less than my crashed old one. The game runs great at highest resolution and settings, but I have to tweak the mission many times to keep it from crashing. Usually the cause is too many infantry running around, so many of my missions focus on tanks, and a little infantry.

    Thanks, I have listed my new computer specs in the signature, but it's not showing up when I reply...maybe only on a new post? I checked for the signature to show on posts in Profile.

    OK, I had a look. It is nice start of the mission! But as my point artillery support takes too much time. Wait 6 minutes on the same place it's boring. I'd like to suggest make it shorter and more power.
    I've fixed script for the German APC's. Now they move along the road. Also I've added trigger_victory. It consist of two parts:
    1. Trigger Superiority 3 times all over polygon
    2. Trigger Superiority 2.5 times in the village
    It does mission will be completed successful either superiority in the village or all over polygon.

    I usually advance my tanks to take out the anti-tank guns and tanks during the artillery barrage, then the 251's come in with the troops. Everything comes together as the artillery ends and we then enter the village. Usually there's not much left!

    I thought I had the 251's starting after 3 minutes? I will have to check. Anyway, thanks for the feedback and the tweaking of the mission. I will try it out and try to decipher it in time.
