Played the SP version last evening and had a lot of fun. The frontal assault was more like a probe...a rifle section came at us on a wide frontage, followed by a small combined armour/infantry probe which was dealt with handily by the PaK's and a crewed mortar. Then it went quiet (except Buzzkov in his aircobra ). Waiting. Waiting. Dashed around to check on my troops, ran over to check the gun emplacements. Just as I got back to my section trench the Soviets seem to swarm out of the village to our rear and then lightly attacked again from the front. I didn't last long lol. Don't know if that was scripted (well done if it was!) or just a freak happenstance with the AI that makes this game so cool. Anyway, well done and thanks for your efforts!!
Nil carborundum illegitimo.
Wish I could take credit for that AI move, but no, it was all engine.
I prefer to avoid heavy scripting, especially with fighting, because the engine still surprises me quite often.
Glad you enjoyed it, and I'm working on a final version (no major changes) as we speak, just need some more feedback first.
All the best,
And I looked and behold a pale horse and his name that sat on him was Death and Hell followed with him.
Nice mission, could use more enemy troops and maybe bit of nerfing of the defenders, 2 x King Tigers is maybe too powerful in defence. In all, should be more difficult and we pulled it of with some 5-6 players. Well done "Iron Cross" theme setting. This mission could also use the old mission naming conventions.
A challenge, thats for sure and it gaves me a lot of trouble, but i did it. A little bit tricky to hold the line, but after the first wave of the attack i retrieve and it was hard for the russian tanks to cross the trenches...
I´m in luck, or i´m a good commander..., but i could stop the agressiv part slightly and so i started a short counterstrike, to get some tanks out. In that case it was the first step to win the battle.
The russians are lightly weaked and after a great fight around the town, i could gave the russian troops the "kiss of death"
Great mission, it was fun and a tactical challenge.
Thanks and keep up your good job.
