    You got that HE-111 model done? It's kinda awkward to use the B-17 as Germany :/

    EDIT: Btw, did you decided if Italy will have its own armor or not?

    Dunno if i mentioned, but Vuorma found a few flags on the optimizer that reduced the maps size by another 400kb. So yeah, we can propably have room for both italian armor and chinese infantry.

    @Empire_Jackal: Some shores are sharp due to how water pathing behaves with the small units we use. If the shore is too long, units will be able to travel a long way under water before they reach the water pathing (at least enough to be covered far over their heads).

    Nah, perhaps i will have production cost/speed for the US and something ship-related for japan, i dunno. Vuorma also thought of the idea that you would be able to upgrade it so that airplanes drop a soldier in parachute when they die, which would propably be feasable.

    That reminds me of paratroopers. I know we've already discussed this, but can you consider adding them? :p

    All countries will share some researches that improves units' stats, like damage, armor, speed, etc, right?

    There is on thing that u should look into. When i played this 2 days ago with some friends a Heavy bomber bugg so it never stopped dropping bombs, and you couldnt controll it. Started to lagg alot, and the plane just flue around and destroyed everything.


    Edit: are there anyone hosting this on Europe? i really want to play but i cant find anyone hosting it.

    I'm up to play it if someone wants to host it too, just join up here and decide a time! For some reason i can't host on wc3 right now, might be something about my ports.

    Anyways, that bug sounds pretty serious, dunno how it could have occured.. it might be related to the airplane freezing bug though; bombs work in the way that i start a timer once the plane is about to start dropping, and every drop, i increase a value in the planes associated struct. What happens in the freezing bug though is that the plane looses reference to it's struct somehow, which would technically mean that this integer could no longer be accessed...

    Anyways, thanks for letting me know, we will continue hunting down theese bugs as good as we can!

    Try the U.S east server, works just as fine. Clan BAR or UFN there seems to be hosting it.

    The UI training que is glitched, it's cut off with 6.5 training slots instead of 7. The icons on the left side of the screen are unprofessional, the planes are damn-near useless... this game is quite buggy. I was disappointed when I tried to bomb my enemy's units only to find that none of them were hurt or killed. Please make anti-infantry planes, as well. And make them work.

    We know of the UI training que and we plan to make real icons for the "heroes".

    If theres bugs other than the airplane system messing up sometimes, please tell. Heavy bombers works perfectly against infantry.

    Thanks, and keep in mind that this is a beta.

    Yeah, a well placed carpet bomb can kill infantry en masse, so i don't know what you're talking about. Dive bombers can also hit infantry. The "bug" with the queue is just related to alpha in the UI overlay, it will be fixed by the next version.

    I just was just playing the game when i found a strange bug...
    My friend was playing the soviet union. When we looked at the multibord he had 1750 oil income but ingame he got 5000 every turn. he only had like 4 refineries so it was very strange.

    The planes didn't work for me. I bombed my enemy's troops, and they remained undamaged.

    I just tried it myself, bombing chineese infantry as japan. They fell like a house of cards!
    It works against ships and tanks too, did you remember to hit the "bomb target" button?

    In the future, planes will auto-bomb at the location you order them to launch to, but we haven't quite gotten that to work yet.
