incomplete test patch. playable nations include Australia, Belgium, Bulgaria, Canada, Communist China, Croatia, Finland, France, Germany, Great Britain, Greece, Hungary, Italy, Japan, Nationalist China, Netherlands, Norway, Philippines, Poland, Russia, Spain, Sweden, United States, Yugoslavia.

heavily modified WW2 mode includes 16 factions instead of 5. there are fifteen national factions:
Australia
Canada
China
Finland
France
Germany
Great Britain
Hungary
Italy
Japan
Netherlands
Poland
Romania
Soviet Union
United States

also included is one generic nation featuring six different types of defensive armies: (Greece, Philippines, Norway, Spain, Sweden, Yugoslavia). many glitches and bugs have been fixed since the previous test patch.

work is still in progress. MG infantry units can now engage aircraft and ground targets all mortars and artillery units revised. artillery range is the historical max range divided by 100. the attack value is determined by the shell weight. historical rates of fire used whenever known revised tank stats. bayonets are only used against infantry 100+ Special Ops many other changes

Ok, just got off my first round of testing. First off, Machine gunners actually target infantry again! Artilliary tanks no longer annhialate everything! restrictions on units now happen in the campaign. THat said, noticed a few things...
On compass, I noted that the italian light tanks seem to be overgunned. The ROF of their AP machine guns (which is probably historical and a neat feature and departure from ALL TANKS FIRE SAME RATE!) cause them to do ludicrous damage to tanks they were annhialated by IRL. Matilda 2's have no advantage over valentines (I thought the 2 had thicker armor), and a few other odds and ends. I'll post later with a better list

on the Matilda II and Valentine I used a standard formula to convert historical stats into gameplay stats. I realize that the Valentine should be the superior tank-- and in many ways it is. the Matilda has higher health than the Valentine, and is therefore harder to kill. the Valentine is armed with the six-pounder gun and has more firepower-- otherwise they should be pretty similar. if you're going to play more defensively and dealing with a lot of enemy AT infantry then the Matilda is preferable. if you're planning on attacking and are going up against a lot of vehicles the Valentine is better because of it's superior AP attack. feel free to PM the whole list to me. I'll address what I can.

this would be the Italian L6/40? it was supposed to be armed with a 20mm autocannon used against aircraft. yeah, I wondered if that would turn out badly. Italian tanks are so weak compared to most nations that I felt like I needed some kind of game balancer.

right now tank health is historical weight divided by 1000 + 300. the defense value is based on armor thickness in millimeters divided by 15.

the reason I picked this was because some of the tankettes had lower health than infantry-- and that was just unacceptable!

we could try an alternative where the health is based on historic weight divided by 1000. but the defense value would be based on max armor thickness.

the defense value is literally subtracted from the attack value being used. so if you had a tank with a defense value of 80 and an enemy tank attacking you had an attack of 38-- it would mean there's literally NOTHING they could do to you. since, in theory, the defense value far exceeds the attack value. I didn't use this method because it would have made certain types of tanks invincible to infantry and artillery.

I've done a lot of work on finding a way to make the tanks in this game better. but in the case of the L6/40 it might be better to make them have Pierce damage instead of AP. that way they can't chew through Matildas like they're made of popcorn.

I suggest you upload it via Mediafire or something else too. Some mirrors always help

Anyway cheer for you, can't wait for it

just finished uploading the new patch. I suspect, now that I see the summary page, that it will get displayed in the Gizmotron page instead of here. I made the mistake of thinking the bottom left-hand box was the place where it would get uploaded. if it ends up at the Gizmotron page I'll post a news article here with a link. I'm hoping it will be available for download by the end of the week, if not sooner.

actually, I tried it four times yesterday with no luck. every time it flagged the file as uploaded it couldn't "find it" when I submitted the patch. so I'll just keep at it until it works.

at 2.01 Gigabytes ModDB requires that it be uploaded via URL. this something that I have no familiarity with. I'm going to take a few days to 'trim the fat' and try it again with a smaller patch. I thought I got rid of most of the excess fils-- but it's worth looking at it again.

(I'll look into the URL technique later, since I imagine that this mod will eventually be over 2 Gigs when it's finally done. for now I think I can get it to just barely fit w/o using the URL method)
