You cannot use aircraft in poor weather conditions. However interception is allowed from fighter in poor weather conditions, Desert Storms, Rain, Snow, etc. Is this something intended?

Hi Guderian,

I've just double checked the code and it shouldn't be intercepting from a bad weather tile, do you happen to have a save handy that I can take a look at?

Hubert

Unfortunately in multi play I don;t even know how to do that save a turn.

I noticed it from Snow and desert as the Allies in different games I think.

Same with escort, I remember I was able to escort my carriers strikes with fighters in snow

I've seen this several times. It has been going on for awhile. I don't remember it happening in the initial releases but I can't say exactly when I started seeing it happening.

I've run a quick test against the AI and in Hotseat mode and there were no interceptions from fighters in bad weather hexes, so the only thing I can think of is perhaps a corrupted and false replay where the incorrect weather was shown during the replay. This is an outlier case and possible if the DAT file for the PBEM++ game had to be rebuilt prior to the replay.

Escorts should be possible from bad weather hexes as we made a rule change for allowing fighters to attack from bad weather hexes but at a limited range, so Escorts would fall under this category.
