Update 1.1.6
Thu, 14 April 2022



Update 1.1.6 brings a number of additions and fixes, most importantly the addition of gun tractors, one of the major development goals for this year.

As always, please report bugs and crashes on the Steam discussion boards or on the Discord. Full changlog follows:

1.1.6 Changelog
ADD: Gun Towing and Gun Tractors
- mobile gun units may be spawned with a randomly selected tractor, chance is high if unit is attacking a zone, low if it is defending
- good chance of gun being spawned hooked up to its tractor if attacking, very small chance if defending
- if gun is spawned deployed, it won't be hooked up to a tractor
- units that are towing or being towed have a much higher chance of being spotted
- towing units may be targeted and destroyed, if a tractor or gun is destroyed the link to its gun/tractor is broken
- immobile guns and mobile guns that are not limbered cannot withdraw from a battle, they must be abandoned (and thus award VP)
- limbered guns need to unlimber before attempting to deploy and/or fire; if successful, they may also attempt to deploy and/or fire in the same activation
- Very Small and Small gun units can fire while packed-up, but there is a to-hit penalty, and RoF is not allowed
- gun units cannot pivot on their own while being towed
- tractor units are defined per nation; campaign files do not need to include them
- game will roll against current rarity when spawning tractor units, also has to have enough towing capacity for that gun
- towing units have a towing_capacity stat with the maximum size of gun that can be towed
- gun tractors always act last during the Allied or Enemy action phases
- gun tractors with no friendly guns that they could tow will usually withdraw from the battle
- gun units that are trying to withdraw will try to pack-up, and will normally not abandon their gun if there is a friendly tractor available that could tow it
- gun tractors towing a gun can withdraw from the battle and take the gun with them
ADD: New Units: C2P, C2P (GER), C4P, C4P (Heavy), C7P, C7P (GER), C7P (SOV), Laffly S15T, Renault UE, Renault UE (GER),
RSO, M4 HST, Loyd Carrier TT, CMP FAT, Morris C8 FAT
ADD: Towing capacity to: Laffly S20TL, MG Carrier, Bren Gun Carrier

ADD: Description for Stabilize Crewman bail-out action

Update 1.1.8
Sun, May 8, 2022



This is a regular update with a lot of fixes and minor improvements to the game. My thanks to the players on the Discord for suggesting many of these improvements and for testing out this update on the preview branch. As always, please report any bugs or crashes on the Discord or on the Steam discussion forums. Changelog follows:

1.1.8 Changelog

ADD: Firing a Gun in Dry ground conditions has a small chance of kicking up dust around the attacker (max 2)
ADD: Possibility of a partial hit result when firing HE; partial hits apply less FP, have no AP effect, and have less chance of causing dust on target
ADD: Different display colours for ranges of travel times on the Campaign Day layer
ADD: Crewman CE display highlighted in yellow if especially vulnerable to incoming attacks (on order that allows spotting)
ADD: Bonus to affect moving deployed guns with area fire attacks
ADD: Wadis: dry riverbeds that can appear on North African campaign day maps. Take much less time to cross than rivers.
ADD: Attempt Hull Down command now greyed out if player unit is already HD in current facing
ADD: New Skill: Leadfoot: Increases chance of an extra move when driving a Fast Tank or Fast Wheeled vehicle.
ADD: AI units that are Lax and have an allied unit in the same hex that is Alert will automatically change statue to Alert upon activation

CNG: Campaign Day map area can now sometimes have 4 or 5 objectives
CNG: Effect of "The Immobilizer" skill more clear now
CNG: Area fire attack penalty for vehicle-mounted weapons reduced
CNG: Any concealed unit that initiates an overrun attack is automatically spotted
CNG: Firepower applied to unspotted targets is now halved (fractions rounded up) when applied, not when resolved
CNG: River crossing check now takes place after breakdown + sandstorm checks
CNG: Fighting Withdrawal day missions:
- any zone that is above the player's current hex row will automatically be captured by enemy forces if possible
- capturing (or defending) a zone awards 2x normal VP
- after winning a scenario, the player will be awarded VP for capturing a zone, but must then automatically move to a zone in a lower hexrow
CNG: Increased chance of becoming Stunned or Unconscious as a result of an injury, but also increased protective effect of Grit stat against this
CNG: Small change to effect of gun shields and movement chances
CNG: Minor change to background of Campaign Day layer display

FIX: Unbog attempt now clears all acquired targets and sets moving status
FIX: Gun units can no longer attempt to deploy/unlimber or pack-up while Pinned
FIX: Convoy Attack objective zones sometimes had few or no trucks spawned
FIX: Longstanding bug in calculating full and critical effect chances for area fire and flame thrower attacks
FIX: AAMGs on pivot mounts no longer affected by negative modifiers for pivoting or turret rotation
FIX: Unit destruction sound no longer played when a unit withdraws
FIX: Too much time was being added for crossing rivers on the Campaign Day map
FIX: Convoy Attack objective now only failed if any enemy trucks remain in the zone after withdrawing
FIX: Campaign records now sorted by total VP
FIX: Bug where a new crewman would not be assigned if Player Commander continued into a new campaign, kept the same vehicle, and there was 1+ crewmen who were KIA while the Player Commander was in the Field Hospital
FIX: Miscalculation of the full and critical effect chance for Area Fire and Flamethrower attacks
FIX: Crash when Player Commander stayed in Field Hospital until end of campaign, but final possible day of campaign wasn't in the Combat Calendar
