Fuel bug????? - 12/2/2011 7:51:22 AM

I don't know if this is a bug or just have too many helicopters. I have made a helicopter unit for this and it has the same fuel usage as the transport plane, so did not change anything there. My question is this, the Ghana regime has 11 helicopters, i transported a engineer brigade to an airfield along the border with Burkino Faso and it did not use a lot of fuel. I then transported an infantry brigade into the liberated part of Cote D' Ivorie into a Ivorian town and afterwards all my oil was gone. Ghana had over 20,000 fuel points and now they have zero. Is this because I transported into another countries town and not an airfield or too many helicopters, will someone please explain this... Thanks

I do not know the answer to your question .


I do know that in WaW I found a bug exactly like this and reported it to Vic. He said that some of the planes values where wrong and fixed it in a release a couple months back.
So i am 100% positive that this can be a bug in the game and that planes can use up all your fuel if some of the values are wrong.

you need to see Vic about this for the solution.

I've also noticed some extreme fuel consumption using air units in random games. I haven't bothered to get into the details of it.


History began July 4th, 1776. Anything before that was a mistake.

while playing my ivory coast scenario i have not noticed this again, but have been doing the same exact thing i was doing to begin with " transporting units to towns/cities" instead of just airbases. my new scenario " Crisis Zaire" while playtesting doing the same thing and so far nothing, it is working fine. So now the question is what caused this and why is it not doing it again....
