Due patches per Combat Mission

E' stata rilasciata prima la patch 1.2 per Combat Mission Red Thunder:

http://www.battlefront.com/index.php?option=com_content&task=blogcategory&id=337&Itemid=581
  • Building entry no longer problematic for some systems
  • Infantry flamethrowers have slightly longer range
  • Troops spot immediately nearby mines better (esp. engineers)
  • Ricocheting APHE will not explode where it finally lands (the fuse is considered damaged)
  • Fixed a bug that sometimes caused buttoned-up tank crew to be suppressed by external explosions
  • Squads position their teams better along walls, fences and hedges
  • Artillery usually requires another spotting round or two before acquiring the target
  • Corrected some TacAI problems with crewmen positioning themselves around a heavy weapon
  • Improved coordination between tank hull and turret rotation
  • Better logic selecting the two men for scout teams
  • Improved long-range optics for JPz IV, Jagdpanther
  • Very heavily-laden soldiers cannot use Fast or sometimes even Quick moves
  • Mouse text for targeting: too close or out of range
  • Towed guns look better as vehicle turns
  • Improved damage modeling for external systems on tanks
  • Improved QuickBattle choices
  • Improved TCP/IP play

E poi la patch 3.11 per Combat Mission Battle for Normandy (qui vuole l'upgrade 3.0 per installarla)


- Group moves and evade commands are no longer a workaround for weight-restricted movement speed.
- M1 Garand rifle-grenadiers carry more rifle ammo.
- Minor fixes to new German vehicle models to prevent crew from poking through the armor.
- ATG bunkers have a more realistic (limited) front arc for their guns.

v3.10 GAME FEATURES
- Quick Battle TO&E options have been improved
- Mouse text for targeting: too close or out of range
- Aircraft control returned to original method (observers have control)
- Towed guns look better as vehicle turns
- Corrected some TacAI problems with crewmen positioning themselves around a heavy weapon
- Better logic selecting the two men for scout teams
- Fixed a bug that sometimes caused buttoned-up tank crew to be suppressed by external explosions
- Artillery usually requires another spotting round or two before acquiring the target
- Off-map rockets generally cost more points in quick battles
- Improved TacAI logic for placing teams along walls (this is repeated/completed in v3.11 so maybe skip mention of it here)
- Improved coordination between tank hull and turret rotation
- Improved long-range optics for JPz IV, Jagdpanther
- Very heavily-laden soldiers cannot use Fast or sometimes even Quick moves

Videos di gameplay con Red Thunder

L'altro giorno ho preso Combat Mission Red Thunder; l'impressione è contrastante: è bello vedere le unità sovietiche e i fanti sui carri, ma l'impressione di deja-vu è forte. Personalmente non mi sono mai piaciuti molto i single player della serie e i limiti del real time quando le unità iniziano ad essere un po' troppe si vedono: è semplicemente folle giocare realtime quando la mappa diventa grande e hai molte unità, diventi pazzo.

Come già dicevo sono usciti anche gli upgrade 3.0 per CMBN e CMFI, ma sono c'è stata una mezza rivolta: questi upgrade, che costano 10 dollari cadauno, non includono nel gioco la possibilità di far montare i fanti sui carri ne i lanciafiamme, due delle più importanti modifiche della versione 3.0. Dato che sia CMBN che CMFI non prevedono altri moduli, gli upgrade sono quindi sostanzialmente inutile e sovraprezzati. Capisco la difficoltà di includere oggetti e grafica in un gioco che di base non li preveda, ma a questo punto facevano più bella figura a darli a prezzo ridotto o 10 dollari per entrambi. Insomma la Battlefront si conferma un'azienda di bottegai.

Upgrade 3.0 per i Combat Mission rilasciato

E' stato rilasciato l'upgrade 3.0 per Combat Mission Battle for Normandy e Fortress Italy. I due giochi così saranno allo stesso livello di engine di Red Thunder.

Ecco le features:

Graphics
Hit impacts to vehicles and bunkers now shown graphically ("hit decals")
Water animates for fording units
Improved shaders
Gameplay
Ground units are now able to fire at attacking aircraft
Ammo Dumps allow platoons to have reserve ammo stored separately on map (automatically distributed for certain Skill Levels)
WeGo TCP/IP with the ability to save but not the ability to replay combat action
Spotters restricted to directing only one Mission at a time. Assets can now be group fired.
More realistic/varied RoF of automatic weapons.
Improved load time for scenarios, especially larger ones with complex terrain
User Interface
Three different sets of camera controls; Standard (traditional), First Person Shooter, and Real Time Strategy
Optional graphical Command and Control link tracing
KIAs are shown in the Soldier/Crew Panels to track soldiers lost during the game
Option to disable music separate from other game sounds
Editor
Ability to create AI Triggers that execute actions based on other units or interaction with Objectives (existing battles do not have this, but it can be added by authors if they wish)
Maximum map size increased
Improved responsiveness of 2D editing, especially for large maps
Improved load time for 3D Preview, especially large maps
Customized "Mod Tags" for most graphics. This allows for multiple mods for the same item without the need to move items in/out of Data folder
Ability to specify specific mods be used for a specific Scenario. If CM fails to find the specified mod it will use the default
