Question about line of sight
« le: 12 février 2012, 15:44:00 pm »
 I noticed that artillery was firing over a village or over a light woods.
Is the engine calculating elevations so that artillery can't fire over a village or a wood or a hill and this a bug that I should send to support@histwar?

Bonjour ou bonsoir Msr. oho,

I have noticed the same thing in F3 view several times myself (over small hills and light woods) .... probably best to send a bug report (and any Save file) to this email address :  technique@histwargames.com  ....  ;)

Line of sight elevation calculations can be a very complicated thing to model for the engine .... hopefully not in this case .... :)

Cordialement, DoE

I have reported this to JMM in the past, cannons do "appear" to fire though hills in the F4 view, but it is far from clear if they fire through them, or if they are elevated (on an up slope) and have a high firing angle and fire up and over the hill......but it does look like fire though it in many cases.
