Infantry

Infantry

So the landing crafts and paratroopers drop off actual infantry models on the land, and they pitch "battles" for capture. I was wondering if killing the infantry guys (they can be killed, I noticed) effect the capture rate in Island Capture in any way (like killing your own guys slows down capture, or killing the enemy speeds it up) or does killing them does nothing to capture process and there for entertainment?

Re: Infantry

I believe killing enemy infantry  does indeed speed up capture rate

Re: Infantry

It does - each infantry unit has a base capture value (similar to ships, although much lower) and killing them makes a difference.
A while back I ran some tests and on one map actively shelling, bombing and strafing the enemy almost doubled the capture rate on average.

Re: Infantry

How do you differentiate the infantry units? Cause all of them appears to wear the same tan outfit.

(Also, does the paratroopers have a higher capture rate compared to infantry from ships considering that there's fewer of them (5 per plane) or is it the same rate as each other?

There is a slight difference in the tan - one being slightly greenish and the other one sand brownish.
Also when you launch the invasion your troops will be facing towards the HQ and the enemy will be facing your troops.
You can also see your troops storming ashore so if you keep track of them you just annihilate whatever else.

And they have the same capture value in the sense of one landing craft's worht of troops and one Paratroop plane's worth of troops. Paratroopers individually do have a higher capture value but it is short lived and combined is equal to one landing craft.

  • Legendary Da : Hi everyone, I have one (or two) quick question about BS:M modding. I try to figure out sp mapmaking, and my first act on it was to convert a MP map to SP. However I can only play as Allies in those maps. What parameter do I have to change to play those maps as Japanese in the respective map .mpak (And where is the parameter I have to change?)?
  • N_Trainz : G'day mates, I just wanted to let those who use Windows 10 and also for those who are having troubles getting the game launching because of Games for Windows LIVE, I made a tutorial of how to get it working successfully again like on Windows 8.1. Its on my channel and here's the link to the video. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : The dictator, I downloaded the mmod2txm and I added four slots to the fletcher and a couple to the lexington.Thanks for the help though.
  • The Dictator : Makeo67 i've explained how to find the unused slots in the topic and the mmod2txm it's a program that has been shared. However there aren't so many ships with unused platforms and sme of them are in wrong positions and for move them you need to know how to change the mmod file. But if you know how to do it you can make new platfors as you want. I've shared the south dakota disposition and this one is the most intersting in my opinion
  • N_Trainz : Well it looks like we have spammers again
  • Mokeo67 : No problem Thanks for the help
  • Axis_Crusher : Not really
  • Mokeo67 : Ok thanks anyway. Do you know who does?
  • Axis_Crusher : Unfortunately I don't deal with that part of modding
  • Mokeo67 : Sorry forgot the link. «link»
  • Mokeo67 : This is the forum topic I meant. The dictator said he found the unused slots in the TXM file obtainable with the mmod2txm, what is this and is it available to use.
  • Axis_Crusher : This is your best bet: «link»
  • Mokeo67 : Also I saw on the forum that ships have unused platform slots. How do I use these?
