Hi All - I notice there is a ton of data on the daily sigint screens. Is this data captured cumulatively somewhere? There could be some very important nuggets in some of the daily information and there'd be no other way to capture all of this unless it was compiled somewhere in sum. Or you could print the screen in a snapshot I guess?

It is dumped into a text file. You can save them if you want for long term tracking purposes.

Thanks! Great to know. I assume that we should also take everything we see on that report with a big grain of salt regarding accuracy...

It is already abstracted to have FoW in it based on the level of detail shown. The results are real type information, but may be a bit misleading.

Any sense of which is more reliable, sigint or recon results? I have an instance where before recon a base showed 7K troops. After flying recon with a carrier-based SB2C the map/base icon showed the same result. However a sigint report has also come up saying that there 15K troops at the base.

Can I put any faith in either of these, given FOW, or are we back to the sub-transported "suicide" recons of UV as the only way of being reasonably certain of enemy troop levels?

In addition, does anyone know if the game setting (eg, 'hard' vs 'historical) makes any difference to FOW? Does the AI Mislead more and withhold more under the 'hard' setting?

Hey DJ,

I don't know which is more accurate, but I would think it is more like real life. You only see what should be 7K of troops, with billeting and such but SIGINT shows communication for X formations that should be of X size. They could be detachments f that group of the whole Division could be there but unseen. If you are trying to pin enemy forces someplace, I would play it historic. The low number is for pinning info. If you are planning to invade the higher number are you enemy force. IF you guess wrong and invade with 3X the force you needed for the high number and the low number is what was present you win very quickly with low casualties. If you guessed correctly then you have what you need. I am still trying to figure out how I can put all of the information I gather into a useful format. If there was a large map or something I could plot the info on that would be great, as it is now, I have to put it all on Legal pads, not very efficient and does not give me a very good representation of what is happening. I am looking at some very nice Wall maps of the Pacific so I can play Pin pusher. Now I just need to find that 8 foot blank wall space to put it. I guess I can take down some of my GF's antique maps and put it up in the Living room.
