As for now AE have two restrictions to operate ships from ports: biggest ship and overall TF tonnage.
I understand and support "biggest ship" issue, as it's obvious one need big harbour to serve big ship.
But for overall TF restriction in practice looks like this:
Harbour: Takao size 4 (48.000 all / 24.000 biggest)
IJN TF has 52.156 tons = "Cannot Dock, Port Size". TF cannot refuel from port if not docked, so ...
- create new TF
- move there some ships from original TF
- dock, refuel one of them, undock
- dock another TF, refuel, undock
- transfer ships from new TFs to original one
- set sails from harbour
Why so many clicks? Who need them anyway?
I understand why somebody tried to put that restrictions in game ("realism") but, hey, it's just a game.
If I can refuel all my 30 ships TF anyway with tons of clicks, why not "keep it simple", as it was in WitP.
So the suggestion is: please consider removing overall TF restriction.
This harbour could jus looks like this: Takao (24.0000 biggest ship service).
