I like the new 20 hex sighting range, unfortunately at Wagram, the weather overrides it and 60 hexes visibility still remains.

Yes, I can see your Austrian forces marshalling for attack at Wagram, while my units remain frozen in place for the main part. Also, very unfortunately, while you are within long range cannon shot, most of the French cannons cannot fire because they are fixed and over stacked in the "old" battle deployments...

It's gunna be a loooong day! Sigh... :sly:

I just took a look and that 20 hex limit seem to be only mentioned in Waterloo & NRC. These are 2 titles that Bill didn't make and I'm not sure if that was meant to go into his titles at all.

the 20 limit is in the wagram pdt, but down in the weather line is the 60. I'm just wondering if it was an oversight.

In the PDT? Not sure where that should be, either the game uses standard values for twilight(4) & night(1) or it is set so that the weather lines determine it. At least so is the description in Bill's PDT guide.

The 60 on the line in bold is the visablity number.

Yes the 60 is there, maybe I misunderstood you because the 20 is nowhere to be seen in the PDT.
I do not think this is an oversight, as mentioned the 20 hex limit was only noted for the Waterloo & NRC patches, maybe Bill wasn't into the idea of a 2km visibility limit for his games.

I didn't realize it was just those two titles. I'd like it to be for all. Thank you for clearing up my confusion.
