Does the TF routing option only determine the hexes a TF will move through, or are there additional algorithms applied within each hex? By this I mean, the manual says "Safest - defines a routing path that completely avoids all known enemy air concentrations" So is the granularity for enemy avoidance just per hex - or also an attempt to avoid within a hex?

For example, suppose there is a Night Air Engagement at say hex 111,118. Another TF is routed going through that hex and reaches it during the Day phase. Will the "Safer" routing choice mean the TF now entering hex 111,118 make an attempt to avoid where the Night Air Engagement took place? Or the TF routing work only by calculating on a per hex basis - and no calculations are made within given hex?

Thanks in advance.

To me it is more about routing through safer hexes, not avoiding air within a hex. Thus, your route will go wide around known air concentrations, whereas "direct" may mean your TF becomes Netty bait. Regardless, I still like to use the waypoint function to route my convoys well wide of enemy bases.

Cheers,
CC

There is no granularity within a hex. So a mountain hex has mountains in every single square statute mile of the total land area of 2116 statute square miles. A sea hex which has cloud cover has clouds covering every single square nautical mile of the 1600 square nautical miles.

OK. Thanks, both for replies. It's what I thought - but I wasn't just quite sure - if you know what I mean.
