View Full Version : Artillery won't fire

I have IL-2+AEP+PF. In FMB I sometimes place artillery behind sandbags or in concrete bunkers etc. But when I watch the battle the guns that are protected do not open fire until the enemy is almost at point blank range. The guns without cover fire normally. Is this problem normal?

The artillery AI won't fire if they are behind/inside something sufficient to block their view. I'm not sure on the exact specifics of the AI but I've had this problem with bunkers and with the sandbags but not with the dug out trench objects (much higher numbers on the list).

It might have to do with the bounding box of the object because the trenches have no collision detection that I've seen (you can run over them with a plane have suffer no ill effects).
