Could someone clarify this? On the TF screen, I see a "Full Refuel" message meaning, I thought, that the TF will top off given a port visit opportunity.

If I assign waypoints, however, I can choose "Minimal," "tactical," etc. for each waypoint. When I choose one of these, the main TF screen still says "Full Refuel."

The manual talks about at sea refueling, but I can't find out what this all means when the waypoints are ports..

1. What am I missing?
2. Does the refuel message on each waypoint refer to refueling at waypoint ports along the way to the destination?
3. If yes to 2, what about the "Full Refuel message on the TF screen?

Man, I really asked that badly... can someone defog this?

Happy Trails.

1. refuel options applies both in port and at sea

2. Yes

3. The refuel option at TARGET port

I.E.  CONV "X"  move supplies from LA to Noumea,   "Full refuel" in the TF screen
Waypoint 1 : Christmas - Minimal Refuel
Waypoint 2 : Pago Pago - No refuel

It will do minimal refuel in christams, take no fuel in pago pago and replenish totally in Noumea, then unload and make the back trip

The message on the TF screen is for the destination. The waypoint refuel options (and patrol refuel options and meet TF options) are for those particular points.

Thanks, guys. It seemed contradictory to me, but not when viewed as you described, i.e. "full refuel" refers to what the TF will do at its ultimate destination... the waypoint settings are just that and do not apply to what happens at the destination... geez, how dense can I be?

Happy Trails.
