Re: Mod Discussion concerning Attrition

New results. Description of test. AI is turned off for this test. That way, there are zero changes to the composition of the theater, so no data is lost in the combat logs. The scope of the test is the battle for Poland. The only troops involved are German and Polish troops. Neither Germany or Polan...

Re: Mod Discussion concerning Attrition

Yike. This test probably overstates the issue since the AI tends to front shuffle so much, but not encouraging.... That is my first though as well. This mod is made for multiplayer, not for AIs. If I made the mod to work for the AI and be challenging vs AIs I would do like Total War does and reduce...

https://i.imgur.com/MkP7z0P.png https://i.imgur.com/XFyMpbJ.png Here's the results from my attrition test. The tests were conducted using 1.6.2 with the .5 mod and 1.7.1 using the .8 mod. Tests were a 1939 German start with Human_AI turned on. Test ran approximately 1 year. 6 runs were done with ea...

Re: July Game thread

I'm assuming the german attrition test is separate from the next main game. For the next main game, I am requesting USSR. For the test game I am suggesting germany but can do USSR too. The attrition test is just me testing using the AI. I've finished with the 1.7.1-.8 tests, now working on 1.6.2-.5...

Re: June Game

Pretty much anything you would mount on a CA or higher has costs, which sounds like that's correct. Am I missing something or doesn't pretty much only the guns & armor on a CA has resource cost? Torpedoes, Secondaries, AA, Radar, FC, Catapult none of them have resource costs. Yeah... That's what I ...

Re: June Game

There are non capital designs that can come into conflict with this rule. For example. Let say I decide to make a cheap ASW DD based on the '36 DD hull. It has only 1 DC in the top slots. I also have a "fleet" DD design that has a normal gun and an AA in the top slots. After a few years, I research...

Re: June Game

You still have to pay the steel or whatever right? You just pay it later? Or do you avoid the steel completely when refitting? How it works is that if the base hull cost 6000 ic and 2 steel and the guns cost 4000 ic and 2 steel when you build the ship normally you pay 10000 ic x 4 steel = 40000 ste...

Re: June Game

Ok, I see the difference. So as long as it doesn't require resources (like Radar), then you can add it into an empty slot for a refit. That solves concern #1, but I still think the micro required and the possibility of "accidental" violation of the rule is a problem. I don't see why you would be co...

Re: June Game

1. What about Radar? With this rule in place, you can't go back and refit any old ships you have to add in radar once you develop the tech. That seems extreme. I believe that the houserule that Alex uses states that there is no upgrading of old ship components to new ship components IF the new ship...

Re: June Game

The main parts of the exploit is that: 1.) The resource cost for guns/hangars ( which can be quite substantial ) is only applied during the refit, and the resource cost for the ship is only applied to the base building. 2.) You can build a ship with guns researched 1-1.5 year later "dodging" the hi...

Re: June Game

Just a note. There is a pretty big exploit in alex mod that we should house rule in now. if you broke this well just don't continue to do so for the rest of the game. He has 2 tech which improve refit efficiency for ships. The same ones that in vanilla let you upgrade say a plane to a new variant f...

Re: June Game

Just putting it out there that for me, Tuesdays are unavailable right now (CKII game) as well as Thursdays. Wednesdays would be best as an alternate, but generally any other evening works for me other than those 2.
