Shark7 -> Question for the AFBs, No btbw please (10/8/2012 3:57:53 PM)

OK, here's my deal. I have a base force that was rescued from Victoria point. Thing is, the ship with the parent unit was sunk leaving just the fragment, which is staying a fragment. I also can't find the parent to reactivate it. So is there any way to fix this, or is it a perma-frag?




Nikademus -> RE: Question for the AFBs, No btbw please (10/8/2012 4:05:11 PM)

IIRC, when a parent unit is lost, if there is a fragment remaining its supposed to be "promoted" to the parent unit. If that doesn't occur its a bug. i'd recommend posting it to the tech forum. Michaelm tried to close those lost fragment loopholes a while back.

I'll do that when I get home, cause I'll bet he needs a save game anyway.

If you are talking about the /2 on the unit (think if memory serves its the 18th or 108th base force), the "parent" IS a fragment. Check the at start forces of a new game and look at the unit in Victoria Point. It is a /2 but it cant combine with its "parent", thus it is in fact a stand alone unit.

While in play testing, the many atoll base forces in the Marshalls (the Kwajalein base force, the Jaluit base force ect) were originally "fragments" of the 6th base force (ie the 6th /1, the 6th /2 ect) that couldnt be combined with the "parent" 6th base force. They were renamed to eliminate confusion for the players. This one is an example of why I suggested the change. Never played allies in the play test phase of development, or I would have suggested it for this unit as well. But its just the 1 unit, so no biggie.

Ok, that may be it. I'll still let michaelm take a look at it, just to be sure. Sounds like that could possibly be a DB error, or maybe it isn't.
