I have 2 ships wich refuse to lay mines, the TF was created at the base where they should lay mines, destination and home port are the same, they start at their destination but no mines are deployed. Any ideas ? I have lay mines switched on .

Greetings

David

Quick checklist

Did you create a minelaying TF?
Did you change the order from "do not lay mines" to "lay mines"? ; button is just below "mission speed"
Did you select a destination
Did you check that the TF has mines? this appears to the right of the screen; "TF Mines: xx", it is below "unload cargo"


EDIT: Also try this; click on change the TF destination and set it manually to your home port

Are they loaded with mines? (check in ship details)

Hi David,

In my PBEM I have experienced the same behavior. I get around it by letting the TF leave the port where I want the mines and then send it back. Seems like the mine laying behavior gets triggered when you arrive at a base.

Cheers,
Guy

For reasons that are obscure to me, minelayers will not lay mines in their base hex.

I remember having this issue some weeks ago; I created a minelaying TF in Kwajalein, set it to lay mines, and it didn't

next turn, I manually ordered a destination; to Kwajalein, and it lay the mines; so I would suggest start by doing this, if not, then try changing home port or moving out

I've been able to lay mines at the TF creation base by setting it to "Lay Mines" and then setting destination once again to the hex it's in. The UI will then come up with "TF xxx will lay mines at Y".

Send them out one hex and back.. or do as Lokasenna mentioned. Either works.

It is the sequence in which you are doing things I think..
