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).
Thanks in advance.
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.
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.
