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:
Great Britain
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

Why is there stuff from different factions in some countries unit listings on the editor? Like French ships in the Japanese Faction list?

Also can cutscene actors be used as usable units? I want to form a Marine Rifleman Squad with just Rifleman, is it possible?

well, the main reason that some units are listed under different countries is because it's been a busy and unpleasant year for me. and I never got around to updating everything. I do plan on updating all of the placement groups, though. what you want to do SOUNDS like you want a create a new regiment. and that's pretty easy. just change the default marine regiment so that there are no machinegun infantry. the only caveat is that you might need to add the 'support' property to the marine. but otherwise, that's a very simple change.

Is stuff like editing regiments done in the editor or in the files?

for this game the editing is done at the .tgi file level with a text editor.

How do I do this exactly? I am guessing it means under the slot entries changing the code from the mg line to infantry line? Where would "support" be written? The property ids or somewhere else?

now that I look at it, the original Marine rifleman already has the support property. (the original marine regiment only had one MG in a rearguard position). so all you should need to do is change the slot entries so that they all read infantry_marine and get rid of the MG units.

but, yeah, the properties section is where you would add that in. every unit has to be assigned a potential position. remember that the captain property is very vulnerable to special ops. so don't use the same type of unit as CO and the frontline. I found I was killing off multiple regiments instantly with some of the special ops-- because I made the mistake of using the same captain-property unit for the whole regiment! imagine using communist purge and wiping out an entire friendly regiment-- so, one must take care when coding these things!

Thanks, is it the same process for vehicles? And if I want the Marine Rifleman regiment to be a new regiment, do I save it with a new name for the file like Marine Rifleman Infantry?

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.
