Ronald Posted July 21, 2008 Report Share Posted July 21, 2008 To those that have played a country in the arctic weatherband (and to a lesser degree players in other weatherbands as well ofcourse) this should sound familiar, and probably brings up memories of frustration. I'm playing norway at the moment and the weather for airplanes is seriously my biggest frustration. Its simply an unrealistic rule and possibly quite unbalancing to the game. A turn in victory is supposed to be roughly the equivelent of 1 month. Its rare that weather is soo bad for an entire month that no missions can be flown at all and if it was then why can some planes fly and others not? Even if they are based at the same airfield? or Why cant the planes at the airfield fly due to weather, but an enemy can hit the airfield without problem? (if only because his airbase 15 smr away is in another weatherband that hardly suffers from bad weather) I could suggest a few improvements to counter the situation, but lets be honest the simplest solution would to simply remove the chance of an airmission failing due to bad weather. (a coastal bombardment doesnt become less effective due to bad weather either, while I can assure you that a ship without modernday electronics would have some serious trouble hitting things it cant see and even a huge battleship gets tossed about in a heavy storm) which brings me to the next point. A mission cancelled due to bad weather still counts as a primairy mission.. alright fair enough.. But then why is a TAS aimed at a location that holds no enemy not counted as an executed mission.. i mean if they didnt fly then how the hell did they know there was no enemy? (this is part of the reason in my opinion that recon planes are seriously under-used) In my opinion this rule simply makes some countries harder to play then others without seriously adding realism to the game.
