Air Support 'List' - 9/2/2010 7:27:48 PM

I saw a screen shot in which somebody was able to display a list of air units that had nice info in making a choice. When I click the 'list' option for air support I just get the nato icons Which is no better than clicking all and deselecting units since both give no information on the unit make-up.

Is this another screen zoom issue? Doesn't seem like it should be since it's just the text in the list that I'm not seeing.

Thanks

ok, well let me describe it a bit better. It shows a list of the unit names, but with no more description then what's in it. From the Case White air units it's a bit tricky to tell, although there are some ID to key off of to decide which units to select. Since we can't rename units and thus make some air units names more descriptive we need to live and understand the given names.

I get the same thing as shown in the attachment.

Not the same as in your detailed war room write-up (post #17 or #18).

Mine looks identical as well. Incidentally I hadn't thought twice about it, although I didn't know what each unit did initially.

The last letter in the unit ID helps. It stands for the majority of the aircaft type and mission for the unit:

R = Recon
D = Dive Bombers
B = Level Bombers

I don't see any data in that write-up that you can't get. To get the detail of the single flight of planes, he would have to click the flight with the entire unit selected. And not from the list screen.

Well, in the war room write-up, Barthheart said that he clicked on "list" to bring up various units for the potential airstrike (either post #17 or #18). I just would like to see the same popup detail when I click on "list" as the writeup indicates.

Try right clicking to see what type of planes each unit consists if.

Yes..holding a right click does provide the detail. I was hoping to get the same type of screen though as shown in the war room write-up (w/o the right click) .

Not a big deal and doesn't affect gameplay. Just one of those nice to have things.

yeah, I have not seen a reply from Braveheart yet. Guessing we have the same game version since there's only a 1.00b patch which I have.

So Braveheart please do tell how you got that list in your posting? I like it much better as a default for me would be great.

Don't be shy to tell us your secrets!

Yes the Braveheart display shows the distance for how far away that the air units is..
