"Automatic Fire on Building"

Postby wexer9 » Sun 4 Aug 2013 05:43

I was wondering if someone could explain to me exactly what this gameplay option does. It's off by default, which makes me think I am misunderstanding what it does, because presumably you would want your units to automatically fire on infantry in buildings instead of sitting around idly until specifically ordered to attack.

Clarification would be appreciated.

I think that I have this option turned off,and it doesn't mean your units won't shoot at the building,it's that they won't shoot logistic vehicles and FOBs.

That's certainly a useful function. Still, why would it be named "automatic fire on building"?

Yer this function needs some explanation does it toggle a sort of ott attack with units shooting up every building in sight?

It's a remembrance from Ruse.
But the only building in WAB is the FOB.

So it does exactly what write on.

I wondered what that command did, but I guess in the end it doesn't matter.

It'd be a lot more helpful if cities were flagged as buildings. They're already treated specially as far as cover is concerned.
