Oddities and Weird Stuff Updated


Recommended Posts

Since the original thread already go hijacked by a discussion about foxholes, I thought it best to start again.  Am hoping we can restrict this topic to a list of weird stuff we have experienced playing CM2 - as that may be helpful to the developer.  

Been playing a lot of CMSF2 (latest version) recently and noticed many oddities and eccentricities that may not all be bugs as they may reflect RL or some incompatibility with older scenarios and campaigns.  But, perhaps other players might want to list things that they have encountered in other CM2 titles - WW2 or modern - that don't make sense or are simply weird. 

To start off, here are the CMSF2 items so far:

Re CMSF2 (so far):

1)  Spotting issues.  A two man scout team with no binoculars can spot enemy units at close to 3,000 meters much better than an FO (with super dooper optics tech) or an HQ with binocs.  

2)  Related to item 1) Once can have a scout team, an FO, an HQ, a Jav team etc all in the same location, literally lying on top of each other.  The scout team sees an enemy units - but even after many minutes the other teams cannot see it - they do not communicate.  There is something wrong with the C2 system.

3)  The M1046 TOW Humvee crew can dismount and take the TOW launcher and missile with them.  According to the UI it takes something like 1.7 minutes to deploy the TOW and a lot longer to pack up.  But it never seems to deploy. 

4)  Related to item 2) It is very very hard to use any vehicle mounted ATGM in CM2 as "hull-down" doesn't mean that only the vehicle optics on the roof are exposed.  Instead the top of the vehicle is exposed and can be easily seen and fired at and destroyed.  Without being able to dismount the TOW in this example, it's usually suicidal to attempt to fire the TOW even from a hull-down position.

5)  Same is true for the M707 Humvee and other "Arty Spotting vehicles" with Laser and other high hech on the roof.  All of these cannot be safely used in CM2 "hull-down" as they can be easily seen and destroyed.

6)  The M1114 AGL (Automatic Grenade Launcher) Humvee crew can dismount with the AGL.  However, it must be a spare from the trunk as an AGL remains mounted on the Humvee and can be crewed and operated by another crew or inf team.  Is it correct that the M1114 carries two AGL's?  (Note that the crew of the M1114 with the 50 cal can also dismount and operate it, but in this case the Humvee no longer has the 50 cal mounted.)

7)  HQ's in CMSF2 cannot spot for arty or air.

😎 Heavy arty falling on top of enemy troops often doesn't incapacitate them.  While it's true that shrapnel may miss, the shock wave of a large explosion alone is usually deadly as it can liquefy one's innards.

9)  Several vehicles (including the M1046 TOW Humvee) have quantities of regular ammo eg: 5.56mm etc.  But it seems impossible to acquire any of it.  The crew cannot acquire it, and if you dismount em and mount an inf team, they also cannot acquire any ammo.

10) LOS issues.  While CM2 is supposed to be WYSIWYG it often doesn't work that way.  One can get down to level one and eyeball a situation.  But, what one sees from a location often is not what a unit will see at that same location.  Eg: The AI can see pixel-wide gaps in what human examination considers completely blocked LOS.  A related issue is that one can eyeball a situation like a road in town and there is no obstruction down a street to target a building.  But one finds that when one places a unit in that location, it cannot see or shoot at the building.  

11) Another LOS/LOF issue.  Frequently we find that a crew served weapon can see and target an enemy only to discover that it's only the 3rd ammo loader who can see the enemy, not the main gun/gunner.  However, it is usually impossible to move the MG or gun a few inches to a position where it can see and fire the primary weapon at the enemy.

To add to the list:

12)  Finding Hulldown positions is often problematic.  Some folks seem to like the "Hulldown Assist routine" available in the game.  But, often it simply leave the vehicle with no LOS to the desired target and one has to waste another turn (in WEGO obviously) manually moving the waypoints to get a hull-down position.  So, one may as well do it manually from the start.  The additional problem is that in the scenario am playing right now it is common that vehicles go from having "No LOS' to "Partial Hull Down" with no "Hulldown" option being able to be located in between.  One can spend many minutes dicking around with moving waypoints the shortest possible distance in this, that or the other direction to find a hull-done position (relative to the desired target), but one can only find either "No LOS" or "Partial Hulldown" positions.  It's unclear if this is an issue with the map, (maybe the terrain is strange), or the LOS routine.

Maybe not weird, but when I target a Bradley at a building, it launches a Tow, then starts to reload TOW and doesn't fire cannon. Before TOW reloads, which takes an age, often get an RPG that takes it out. Maddening. I would much prefer TOW not to reload, and fire cannon instead (unless targeting a target against which cannon would have no effect, but even then, may prefer cannon if it strips off external systems and shocks crew).

Why don't u use the 'Target Light' command then? IIRC the Bradley will fire 25mm when that command is given.

2)  Related to item 1) Once can have a scout team, an FO, an HQ, a Jav team etc all in the same location, literally lying on top of each other.  The scout team sees an enemy units - but even after many minutes the other teams cannot see it - they do not communicate.  There is something wrong with the C2 system.  Again... apologists say that in RL they often cannot see what their buddy can see.  However, since the Thermal Imager is so much more effective, wouldn't they simply borrow the rifle with the Thermal Imager so they could see for themselves and then line up their super dooper optical gear on the target so they could finally see it?

3)  The M1046 TOW Humvee crew can dismount and take the TOW launcher and missile with them.  According to the UI it takes something like 1.7 minutes to deploy the TOW and a lot longer to pack up.  But it never seems to deploy.

16) Some SNIPER teams in CMSF2 carry 50 cal rounds, even though they possess no weapon that can use 50 cal rounds.

I think, it has to do with situation awareness. Example scout spots an AFV and through the Communication Networks the info ends up at the Battalion HQ. Now our tanks and forward observes come on the scene. Click them and you see no Contact Icon, I recently teamed the company assistant with the Arty Spotter or Airforce Observer. The Headquarter units are also in proximity of each other. The contact icons become visible with the different branches. Recently in British Mettle the Challengers were more effective by just putting them in the same proximity as the Company HQ Warrior. I just opened them up and the Contact Icons were shared from the Company CO to the Challenger HQ tank.

This is not an issue IMHO as you cannot throw smoke 'into' the buildings either (ie: such that the smoke is only inside of the structure).

The C2 system in CM2 completely breaks down when one has units from different formations sitting literally on top of each other.  These guys simply do not talk to each other in CM2.  

This is not true. They happily transfer contact markers between any and all units.

Have already, in great detail and multiple times, outlined my tests on GeorgeMC's CMSF scenario where several inf teams were placed on top of each other and they did not share contact info - at least not within the 5-6 minutes that I tested as that seemed like more than enuff time for them to have a chat.  From what I can see perhaps the C2 system works in a hierarchical formation, but not in "common sense mode" when one has multiple units sitting on top of each other (regardless of higher formation) not communicating info.

I did not test for 10+ minutes.  Maybe that time delay needs to be looked at.

Was this in a scenario ported from CM:SF1 to CM:SF2.....The reason I ask is because the map where I've been having some Red C2 issues was ported. 

 

It was something I noticed while trying to play all of GeorgeMC's scenarios as they are all such high quality.  The spotting issue arose while playing "TV 98-5 STEELERS" (a CMSF scenario on a large map with 2.5+ Km LOS/LOF - so spotting enemy armor and ATGM's is vital for the US player.)

17) Park your vehicle directly behind a small tree and any enemy fire that comes from that direction will hit the apparently indestructible tree and the vehicle may be 100% unaffected.  Unless the enemy gun moves, it can exhaust all its ammo in this way.  AI controlled guns especially can be made useless by this trick.

Happy New Year, Virtual PBI!  Thanks for posting this @Erwin

My main gripe with BS and SF2 is the ineffectiveness of ordinary artillery against armoured vehicles. PGMs aren't much better. I have had many direct hits and near misses and vehicles often seem to be unaffected. They drive away with apparently no track/wheel damage or immobilisation.  The worst was an offtable 122mm exploding underneath a Bradley in BS. I cannot envision anything other than it penetrated the vehicle completely. I can't see any way that the Brad wouldn't have been blown to pieces. Shortly afterwards it drove away!  

Here is a link to one of the discussions artillery and tanks

Likewise I find LOS a constant minor irritation.  I expect many players have lined up a 'perfect position' only to find that when you deploy the weapon, the crew cannot see anything. Having the wrong ammo is annoying but I put it down to standard military incompetence and a drunken quartermaster 😉. I gave up on the hulldown command and use the manual method, which seems to be more effective, though time consuming. I do wish BF would address some of the most egregious issues, in terms of realism and gameplay. I can live with TOW  Humvees being sh*t, but some of the other stuff does reduce my enjoyment, not to mention immersion.

That would be 'Galloping Horse Downfall' at a guess?  :rolleyes:

Those Bradleys are mustard!  :o

I've commented before that it's questionable if the US needs Abrams if Bradleys really are that good.....Defeating multiple T-90s in a frontal engagement (when the T-90s knew where they were** and the Bradleys had already been plastered with 122mm PGM, so should have been in a bit of a mess).  :unsure:

** They all dismounted and went and looked, getting positive contacts.....But they still couldn't spot 'em with their thermals once they mounted up and attempted to engage (or not before the Bradleys took 'em out with a volley of TOWs)  :mellow:

18) Attempting to resupply a squad one may split off a two-man team to mount a vehicle, get the ammo, then debark and run to where its squad is.  That takes two turns.  However, the teams may not recombine.  A turn later when one again moves both parts of the squad to the same spot, they may still not recombine.  To get the teams to recombine one has to split the larger squad team into two and then move all three teams to the same spot.  Only then will the teams recombine to the full squad and complete ammo resupply.
