Update 0.4.0.139

Commanders, this update will surely please many of you! We’ve significantly expanded the AI capabilities of your squad members and AI-controlled squads, an updated squad orders menu, and rebalanced weapons in the Pacific War campaign.

Improved AI

  • AI medics in a player’s squad and AI-controlled squads now heal nearby wounded allies by themselves. AI medics in AI-controlled squads now can set up medkit boxes.
  • Fighters in your squad will be smarter about using cover. Soldiers will prefer to use the same side of the object that the squad commander is hiding behind. For example, if the commander hides in a building, the soldiers will follow him inside.
  • AI flametroopers in a player’s squad and in the AI-controlled squads can now use flamethrowers. They will prefer to use flamethrowers if the enemy is close enough and will switch to firearms otherwise. 
  • AI-controlled squads will now call artillery strikes, use grenades and  explosion packs, build rally points and ammo boxes.

Improved menus

  • Now radial menu buttons (squad members and orders) no longer require a press to confirm: highlighting a selection and releasing the menu button is enough. This improvement will especially help the players who use a gamepad. 
  • Radial menu no longer has submenus. Orders for your squad are opened  by default. From this menu by pressing the corresponding buttons you can open the team messages and posters menus. The buttons below can also be pressed using the mouse cursor.
  • Formation and behaviour of the AI soldiers can be set up in the soldier selection menu.
  • Now the first item of the radial menu is placed at the top (12 o’clock).

Other changes

  • Added an option to automatically choose an optimal game server.
  • Fixed crosshairs of Kbsp wz.38M.
