Some Tips for Anyone New to Spring 1944

I’m relatively new to Spring 1944 but here’s what I’ve learned so far -

More Flags = More Command Points

In general keep an eye on the command and logistics bars at the top of your screen

Keep the green plus figure above the negative red figure on the command bar to avoid stalling

After 20 minutes your command points will double for each flag still held

Infantry will fire faster if you keep them within the radius of a supply

Infantry throw grenades further down hill

In general vehicles and aircraft use the least amount of logistics, tanks use a medium amount, while artillery use the most

Scout ahead

Use ‘fight’ to move, especially near or beyond your front lines

If possible, try to attack just after you’ve been resupplied

Attack in numbers and from multiple directions where possible

Try to keep your armoured units facing the enemy, their armour is thickest at the front

You can use the shift key to queue orders

While on the move it takes 3 rifle infantry about 1.25 full pass along the full diameter of a flag circle, without leaving the circle, to capture it from neutral

While on the move it takes 2 rifle infantry about 2.25 full passes along the full diameter of a flag circle, without leaving the circle, to capture it from neutral

While on the move it takes 1 rifle infantry about 5 full passes along the full diameter of a flag circle, without leaving the circle, to capture it from neutral

If you do a search on your computer for ‘uikeys.txt’ you’ll be able to see Springs default gaming keys and change them if required

Please feel free to add to these.

Nice tips :wink:

Like infantry, aircraft are subject to a fear mechanism from AAA fire. When ‘scared’ they will turn back to your base and use fuel at a higher rate.

One or two that are not well known outside regular players:

Scouts have binoculars, attack at long range to use them, they give a small circle of sight much further out.

Furthermore, when artillery is targeting an area, once that area has been in view for 20 seconds, the artillery will become much more accurate. There’s no visual indication of this at all so it’s really hidden away.

Smoke rounds will cause enemies caught in the smoke to lose accuracy and sight - but also cloaks them from your view.

Even better tips! :wink:

Especially like the one about the scouts using bins to attack.
