Maximum pilots in Game - 7/27/2011 3:25:53 PM

Hi all,

Anybody know what the maximum pilots available at one time in the game. I am playing a heavily modified scenario, with larger Japanese Air Forces. When I request new pilots from Replacement Pool sometimes for my training groups, No pilots are added. The next turn after some general combat losses, I am able to add some pilots again.

I am assuming that the game is hard coded as to how many TOTAL pilots (20,000? 40,000, etc).
Anybody know?

Thanks in advance.

PS:
I am a long term fan since UV, but rarely ever post, however I regularly read the forum. I guess its time to add my "experience " to the mix.

I believe the total array is still set at 50000 but I believe that changes have been added to the betas to give players the ability to alleviate some of the problems associated with running out of room.

Limit is 50000. If you run into the limit you cant draw any more pilots (option greyed out)
With the beta patches two additions where added. First the game automatically purges Pilots which are dead and have the least kills to free up some of the pilot space. Second and more important ability is to remove pilots from the game. You can do that from the different pools. So if you run into a real problem fire some of the lower quality pilots which usually add up during the game.

If you play against the AI -> switch to head to head game, do a turn for the AI and fire some of the AI pilots. You can assume with a stock game that during late war you need around 30k Pilots for the allieds alone.

In case you guys are wondering how I run out of pilots...

What I am doing is creating large Training groups in Editor 250 Pilots max.

In game you can load these up to 512 pilots - all set to training. I let them train for about 3 months and then dump them into general reserve, giving me some decent pilots.

I have about 10 of these groups active (5 IJN and 5 IJAAF equals about 5000 pilots in training)

This does not include the pilots in replacement pool.
