I flew non-carrier aircraft off a carrier to transfer to a base airfield.

Yes, that can be done, you just can't return them to the CV without docking and using a crane....GP

to clarify Dan, it's actually "two carriers, a battleship and numerous cruisers and destroyers"

The 'warm fuzzy feeling' after completing that 'perfect turn'

That turn where you adjusted orders - identified opportunities you hadn't seen with resources at hand - literally adjusted every base - and the majority of units on 3 major fronts.

And then all the aircraft fly / troop movements execute / combat goes as well as expected and maybe even better.

It happens about once every 4 - 6 month game time...

Like hitting the perfect approach shot on the 18th fairway in golf... man I love it and I need to get back to it soon.

Verses the AI - yes

Now as I say... it is occasional and not too frequent. Maybe 2 per 'game year'.

The last warm and fuzzy feeling WITPAE gave me was was when AI decided to attack my army sieging Tokyo. This should shave off months from the siege timetable!

Besides that I really love harvesting fighter pilots from training squadrons. Sort by Air - release,release...(for those traning Escort); sort by Def - release, release (for those trainng Sweep); request veterans - sort by Def, release,release... (to refill those squadrons training sweeps).

Ah, New York's not that bad. If you get out here let me know. I'll act as your guide. As far as Denver, never been, except the airport. If I get there you can be sure I'll be in touch. Always looking to meet AE people in person.

Exactly and supposedly they have salmon out here in the West that'll put those puny New England trout to shame (though I used to like catching them).

When I saw "Attack ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion." Oh wait, that was Blade Runner. I tend to get a bit emotional about both Blade Runner and WITPAE.

This is I think the primary warm fuzzy feeling of an Admiral on either side of the equation.

The opposite causes angst and sudden motivation challenges to complete the game; it was referred to as SLOCS by a veteran poster as I recall

Sudden Loss of Carrier Syndrome.

Well it is a beautiful map, very well done, and my initial plan, and its execution, for the game against APbarog was pretty good, in my opinion. I like to think that I was inspired by the map. My planning and execution since the initial first few months has not been as effective. Are the effects of map inspiration deteriorating? It may be so, but the fault certainly lies with me and not your artful rendering of the Pacific theater.

When I installed and played my first game. I thought “this can’t be real”

It can’t be real that there exists in the 21st century a group of game designers that actually understands 20th century amphibious naval operations at the strategic level.

And then the double mental slam! They also understand strategic 20th century industrial warfare down to the micro level, unbelievable!

SLOCs is a real acronym for Secure Line of Communication. The Forum usually calls the other one Sudden Carrier Loss Syndrome.
