From: Fife Scotland
After endless trial runs, trying to get the Naval AI to retreat when its taking a hammering,today for the first time, the German AI finally decided that survival was the best option!
Now the reason why the AI has had a change of heart I know is this,and the solution is extremely simple,PORT DEFENCE yes that little green dot area,I have increased it to ( 30 ) and what happens is this,even Britain in my scenarios with three Battleship units,can't beat the German Battleship units in Wilhelmshaven,nope can't be done perfect just what should happen ya beauty success at last.
Now for the best bit,don't let Germany get there hands on the coastal ports in the English channel,as per the photo they are hard to shift when they move there ships into the port hex,finally a true naval game with high drama and excitment!!!
Please note the German Battleship unit defending itself in Antwerp,while further down the coast,a German Pre-Dreadnought is doing the same thing in Calalis,and the German Battleship unit back over at Wilhelmshaven,is there because that is the ship unit that was taking a beating in the English Channel just outside London,I followed it with the ships further out in the North sea and the French Pre-Dreadnought to the German coast at Wilhelmshaven,because of fog of war I had no idea where the German Battleship unit had gone,and it had retreated to Wilhelmshaven.Also note the cross hairs targeting it from the French pre-dreadnought,what the screen shot does not show is that the French pre-dreadnought would take round about 8 strenght points off damage if I attacked!
Ignore the fact that Germany has run amuck all over Belgium and France,remember this was a naval game trial run I was not interested on what was happening on land.
