Hi, does anyone know how to make a unit retreat when it becomes pinned or supressed? i have been trying for the last few days and have not been able to get this to work.
You press the retreat button. Sometimes though a unit won't listen to the order.
Also this thread does not belong here, its supposed to be put at Problems and help.
this thread does belong here, im not talking about a unit not retreating when i press the button, i want to know how to force a unit to retreat when it becomes suppressed or pinned, i tried copying the actions from the force rout ability into the combat_behaviour _ext of a unit under the supressed table, there is a pin activate actions critical table that is where i pasted the actions for forcing a unit to retreat however it didnt work. anyone have any ideas?
Unfortunately you were not clear enough, as people would think you're having problems in-game. You should have mentioned it all. At least you made it clear.
You want a unit to retreat as soon as it gets pinned? Or suppressed?
either one works as long as i can figure out one ill be able to get them both working how i want, a unit become suppressed before it becomes pinned so i guess itd be better to have a unit retreat when it becomes pinned
Assuming that you could do that and you did. Wouldn't automatic retreat of supressed unit be sketchy? Most of the time some units on the ground are needed as they become the decoys, going back to the base from the frontline is kinda costly.
my mod is balanced around larger scale battles, there is usually hundreds of units on the field, it is meant to be a realistic mod and having units retreat will reflect that i am adjusting the amount of incoming fire needed to make units suppressed and pinned so it will work like a morale system from the total war series, if a unit gets suppressed you need to help them before they break.
The TOTAL WAR series, huh. Like when Units (Cohorts, Hastati) route when outnumbered or when other units are routing? I see, I see.
