Default INF hitching a ride on tanks

Is this in the game yet?

I know I can move a mixed stack of infantry and tanks, but haven't noticed if the INF get the better movement rate from hitching on say a HVY.

Of course we don't have the GEV-PC yet, so it may still be in development.

Yes, but it was causing some weird graphics glitches, and I don't know if they fixed it yet. You have to specifically assign them to ride vehicles, there's a button if you select an infantry with full movement that is stacked with tanks.

Yes, it's in the game, but there are some caveats.
  • There's no visual indicator the INF are in the hex with the tank; you have to mouse over and check the sidebar
  • It doesn't work correctly for units moving through the hex

Thanks. I'll look for it now that I know it's there.

Can you elaborate on this please GP? :)

The issue previously reported (where armor units moving through the hex and picking up infantry couldn't continue their movement) has now been fixed. Is this what you're referring to or is there another issue around this?

Thanks

Yes, that's the main thing to which I was referring. There are a couple other details about mounting/dismounting that I still need to check, though.

Glad that one is fixed :-)

Is that in the current release build, or something that's only in beta?

Tested in default branch earlier and it was included. Worth mentioning that there's an update on the beta branch with a few changes in it. Will include a full change log when we set to default :)

Thanks

Jake,

Emailed an updated bug report. The short version is it's "mostly correct" now. There is just one remaining edge case where you can't dismount INF if the tank they are riding has moved its full movement.

Definitely a lot better though.

Thanks, we're looking into it :)
