tbothy -> Computer Controlled Sub Patrols (2/7/2013 1:54:03 AM)

Hey All
Im still a noob at this beast of a game and learn very much from the forum,

Ive upgraded to the beta patch 1123d and have noticed that most of my computer controlled sub patrols are defensive and so are patrolling along the USA east coast and Hawaii whereas ealier patches they patrolled the sea lanes around Japan and the other japanese owned islands. Is there some way of influencing the computer sub patrols or do I need to use Human Controlled to patrol around the Japanese owned islands?
Thanks in Advanced

Just turn off CC sub patrols. The computer will send your subs to silly locations, and then keep them out so long they run out of fuel before they can get back home to refuel. The last time I tried to use CC, it sent all my subs one hex off the coast of Japan, in a 3-4 hex area. Needless to say it was ASW heaven for a while there. Plus, it took me many, many turns to track down all the sub TF's in CC and turn it off, then reset them to better patrol areas, home bases, etc.

Read this thread and the posts from Don Bowen.; in particular his last post.�

Yes ther are some things you can do but there are also certain factors outside of your control which result in increasing numbers of defensive auto generated sub patrols as the war progresses. Only sure way to ensure you get no auto generated defensive patrols off CONUS or Hawaii is to have computer subs operations off and manually creating your own patrol zones.

My games ago i knew nothing of setting up sub patrols, but, as John 2 posts up said, turn off the computer controled sub missions and set then yourself . I had at one point 15 subs patroling around New Zeland. look at the above thead too, it has good info. Cheers[sm=00000436.gif]

It's a fact tbothy, the computer does some very strange things with your subs, so unless you are really pressed for time or simply don't want to be bothered by having effective sub patrols, turn it off and set things yourself.... all your subs will be in the fight then rather than patrolling around such high value areas as southern New Zealand....

Hal, You couldn't be more right. But we do love this game. Cheers[sm=00000436.gif]

Last time I used SS in Computer Control mode was with original WITP, but I am pretty sure you could then click destination for every SS, and AI would set patrol around area you send the sub.
