Hi Michaelm

When i order a TF to load/unload something is there a way to know an estimate of the days needed to complete the task?

(If not could it be possible to add this information in the TF screen?)

Many thanks for your support!

Not at this time. There are a number of variables that can change from turn to turn. But you can't foresee what those values will be.

Littleike,

Using this advice VERY loosely...
Port size 1,2,3 = 1,000 load for ships +/- variables.
Port size 4,5,6 = 2,000 load for ships +/- variables.
Port size 7,8,9 = 4000 load for ships +/- variables.

Assuming you have 5 AK's (3000 capacity) in a TF and load at a size 5 port you can average 400 supplies loaded for each ship per turn. It would take 7 days to fully load the TF of course plus/minus the factors of naval support, disruption at port etc.

There are experts on here that could break it down by ship type and so on, and I would trust thier information MUCH MUCH more than mine, but I have found it a pretty good fast n loose guesstimate.

My apologies if this has already answered but I've noticed an increase in downtime for maintenance on higher service rating aircraft (specifically 4E's). I can't see anything in the beta patch notes other than a comment that durability is now accounted for when putting aircraft into maintenance mode which will "spread" the maintenance out a bit more. Was a change made that increased the maintenance/repair time for aircraft such that high durability aircraft take longer to repair now (similar to ship repair).

Cheers,

Daniel

I'm new to the game and am in May 1942 (Allies) in my first game. At this point it's taking about 2 hours to play 1 turn. My son jokes that by 1944 it will take 1 day to play a day.

Can I apply the patch to a game I started with the official version? Can I continue to play my game against the AI or does the patch only work for PBEM? Are the game changes significant enough that I'm going to have to learn a completely new game if I apply the patch? I'm just getting the hang of the official version. I don't want to have to start over as it's taken me almost 3 months of daily play to get to May 1942.

Thanks.

You can patch, and the patch is for both AI and PBM play.

quick question:

I remember in one of early patches Michael said that the early infantry and engineer squads will be upgrade to later version squads later. I remember he said 6 months after the newer version is in production or something.

Is this still true? If it is true, after how long will the automatic upgrade happen? Thanks.

After 6 months, an obsolete/expired pooled device (squad or engineer type) will slowly convert to the upgraded version; if japan, obsolete devices go back as the raw materials

Thank you Michael for the response.

Does it matter if the game started before this particular patch?

I still see bunch British Combat Engineer squads which has expired for 12 months in my game.

No it does no matter when game start but in game settings "Auto convert obsolete devices" need to be ON

Thanks Koniu,

I see that option is on and my game version is 1.7.11.23h

So now I can only wait for them to convert slowly, right?

Yes. If You are playing allies after six months squads will slowly convert to last available version(only squads. Devices, guns, vehicles not covert).
If You are playing Japan old devices(tanks, guns, radars) will slowly convert back to armament or vehicle points.

One last question, how slowly we are talking about here? I still see a bunch British combat engineer squad(41 version), they have been expired for more than a year by now. British Combat Engineer 43 already in production for some time but the old ones are still there.

Don't know if this is possible but could a filter be added to the Naval Air list to list just those air units that are on ships and currently in a TF. Ideally the filter should be All/Port/TF but just ships at sea will do. Thanks even if it can't be done.

Kate payload for bombs - 5/28/2013 6:02:23 AM

Hi Michaelm,

It looks like Kates can use the 800kg bomb in place of a torpedo while flying port attacks (there might be some checks/rolls that need to be made also?).

I am wondering if the 800kg bomb can be used during Naval Attack missions? I've used Kates attacking warships (BBs and CVs) and in the three missions flown recently they've only used 250kg bombs while flying the Naval attack mission. Maybe there is a roll they are failing?

I guess my thought is that if the Japanese CVs have 800kg bombs stored away for Port Attacks, it would seem to me that they'd arm Kates with those same 800kg munitions if they are going after Big Boys & Carriers.

Can you share the rules involved in access to the 800kg bombs for Kates and perhaps some thoughts on any in-game restrictions in current access to that bomb?


Thanks much,

Mike

No need to restart..usually beta update has no problem. Wait about 3 days before u upgrade so the old timers can vet any issues which will appear quickly on this thread...

I believe they are only used in the initial attacks.

Minor-Major Engine Damage - 6/8/2013 3:41:02 PM

Hello Michael. One minor but quite annoying thing about how ship repairs are handled is that ships with a single point of major engine or flotation damage must manually be put into a shipyard. This tends to result in dozens of ships with 1pt of damage that they have acquired while at sea piling up in ports and spamming up the operations log. Could it be made possible that if a ship, at the end of a turn, is in a port with a shipyard that has enough room to take it, and has only 1pt of major engine or major float damage, without having any other damage, can have a chance to repair the 1pt without user intervention? It would cut down on tedious clicking for the sake of clicking quite a lot, I think.

(I suppose it's possible that this already happens and I simply haven't paid attention to individual ships enough to notice, but then if that's the case I wouldn't know...)

In a sufficiently large port ships with one point of engine damage should not need to be put in the shipyard. Ports size 7 or larger can repair up to 5 points of engine or major floatation damage while in Pierside.

Right. That's why I wouldn't like ships move into yard automatically. They could potentially block the yard for ships in urgent need of repair. With only one point of major damage that blocking wouldn't be that long though.

On the shortcut, the 'Start in' directory should be the one containing the main game files (i.e. where these files (amongst others) are found
pwfind.txt
sopachex.dat
witprec.exe
)

I had the Start In pointing to the wrong directory. Now the game loads but there are no scenarios. The Scen file is there as a sub-directory in the Save file.
