Nothing like a bit of encouragement hey!
But I guess it takes all sorts
He is Ukranian but is now living in Germany. He's had a rough trot this last year. The war has been horrible for so many.
Particularly for an attack, the principle determination is whether the end point for the event remains under an artillery bombardment support umbrella.SITREP Fri14 Apr 23
Clobbered a swathe of bugs this week. I now get through the first lot of attacks launched by CCA 4AD. As the situation opens out after the initial crossing objective the German's launch their own counter-attack. With more space for both sides I'm getting into the arty staging code that I wrote for attacks a year ago. I'm currently dealing with an interesting case that I had not planned for. The Germans are counter-attacking with one of their inf battalions. All units of the main Attack force group are close to their intended objective, so there is no approach route, just an assault route. I hadn't catered for this, so I made some changes to the code to substitute the assault route in such cases.
But then I struck another problem with this case. The onCallSpt force group (FG) has the arty units and it's separate to the mainAttackFG. This attack has two arty units, one of which is close by and one a long way back. The one nearby is no drama. It deploys near the start of the assault route. The on far back though creates a join route to the start of the assault route. But alas its final staging poiunt remains set at the start of the assault route. I now need to concatenate the routes and recalc the final staging position to avoid pushing the longer ranged arty unit too far forward where it will be within its min bombard range and hence unable to fire in support of the attack.
I'm sharing this with you so you can appreciate the nuances that are at play in what is a very complex situation.
