Taskforce fuel consumption bug? - 3/16/2012 1:05:01 PM

Ok let me start off by saying I'm slack- so no screenies or file uploads.

However- scenario 2, latest official patch- this is an easy test for anyone to try. (I just used the forces in PH at the start of the scenario after standing down the Japanese and Allied forces).

Take 2 ships (identical class and fuel load, ops points etc.) and put them in separate taskforces (For my test I used Farragut class destroyers with a speed of 10/4). Lets call them TF 1 and 2

I set up a third TF 20 hexes away from the destroyer TF's (call this TF 3). This TF is set to remain on station (but can also be moving)- I chose 20 hexes as that's exactly 2 movement phases for the destroyers in TF's 1 and 2

Set TF 1 to full speed- destination hex the same location as TF3
Set TF2 to meet TF 3 (or follow TF 3) at mission speed

Run a single day turn

Both TF1 and TF2 will reach the hex that contains TF3 (sometimes they fall one hex short). However TF1 will use much more fuel than TF2.

It seems that the TF set to meet or follow another TF will catch up to its "target" using full speed but is not consuming as much fuel as it should.

Has anyone else noticed this?

Is this WAD?

Cheers.

Daniel

YES! I certainly have. Also I've noticed that for some vessels, let's say a 12 knot merchant, that the distance traveled on full speed and mission speed is the same no matter what you want and here too the fuel consumption goes way up on full speed. Also with ships like this the M/C speed is both the same IIRC. Having had a grandfather in the merchant marine I do know that there was very little difference in fact between full power and cruising speed on those Liberty Class merchants but I thought there might be something reflected in the game OR that the fuel consumption would remain the same for this class when either speed is selected.
