Air support - continuous bombing

#1 Post by pzkpfw » Aug 02 2011

I'm using Taiwan, I have a couple of B25J (strategic bombers) that are able to bomb Chinese facilities without taking damage. The problem is that I have to click every single time on bomb facility to carry out one mission and it means that to destroy completely an enemy city or an industrial complex I have to give hundreds of clicks just to destroy a complex. Is there a solution to order to a group of bombers to attack continuously an hex?

you may be able to change the order to make it continuous although this will mean they will keep going and trying to bomb it even after the facility was destroyed i think.

Yes it isn't a problem if they are going to bomb for a while an empty hex, but I can't find the options to order a continuous air bombing..

you might be able to go into the orders.csv file, and modify the order command so that bombing a hex will be continuous rather then once only.

I'm trying to find the right command but there are hundreds of options.. I'm quite sure that it's possible change it but I can't find the right mix of rows and columns..

SGTscuba, that's one great advice over there!

Just so everybody knows, I tried your suggestions and to make it simple:

Inside the orders.csv file, find the order BOMB HEX (you could use MS Excel to help you with the layout) and, start counting spaces STARTING just after the name of the order (in this case BOMB HEX) and count, whether blank or filled with 1s, until you reach the 71st space. There, change the blank space for a 1 and there you go.

Next time you use the command BOMB HEX, the bombers will go, break hell loose over the hex, go back for resupply and voila! come again
for more!

edit: They will come back they will not fire again. That's the bad part. Perhaps anyone can enlighten us?

I had test it and ..same problem...when bombers comeback on target (the2nd, the 3rd and so on...) if they have direct attack it's ok, if indirect attack they dont' bomb facility.
