It is June 42 and I have all the elements of the 1st and 2d Marine divisions on Nouema, but I can not build them into divisions. The 1st Mar div has all elements attached to Pacific Areas but the build unit button is greyed out. The 2d Mar Div inactive parent unit is attached to the restricted West Coast. all the bdes are Pacif Areas. Both have astericks next to the inactive parent units name.
I do not have the PPs to convert all the brigades to West Coast before I assemble the 2d Mar div, and then I would have to reassign the div to another hq in order to move it, again costing tons of PP. And, if I convert the entire div to West Coast, what guarantee do I have that it will not be one of those dreaded white restricted units that can never go anywhere ever, or just be greyed out, like the 1st Mar Div? Nouema is size 6 with 100k supply and the 1st Amph Hq. Version is most recent public beta (p I think).
Thanks for any assistance.
Change all of the units to "Pacific Areas" and then send them all to Noumea. (Don't change them to any Restricted Command.) You can only reassemble ground (or air) units when they are all under the same command and in the same physical location.
Now, if one of the sub-units has upgraded a bit and has a slightly different TOE then you won't be able to reassemble it either until all of the units are at the same TOE level.
It is generally better to reassemble units back in some large, well-supplied main base that is away from the Front, and then ship the assembled unit to where you want it.
Good luck -
