Hotfix 6

Posted by: Aggroblakh on steam_community_announcements February 18, 2019

Hi all,

Some critical (although minor) changes I felt deserved a new build this weekend.


  • Have changed the default manner in which companies and platoons are named. Now their numbers/names are relative to their commanding unit ie. each company will have its own 1st Platoon, etc.
  • Fixed crash that would occur when scheduling orders if order was issued after its intended start time.
  • Have separated terrain effects into separate effects depending on terrain type. This allows me to customize things, like having forests impede movement, or buildings obscure units based on their condition.
  • Morale and readiness regain is now halted when on watch duty. I'm hoping this gives players more of a reason to rotate units between watch duty and rest.
  • Machine gunners can now explicitly be ordered on watch duty. Previously they could only be ordered to rest, and would switch to guard duty during the day.

I'm also working on getting Help text into the game, accessible from the pause menu. Let me know if there's anything that needs more explaining and I'll make sure it gets in right away.

Thanks for playing!
