MikeB -> ALLies in motion... (8/8/2013 2:01:24 PM)
Many allied nations are herein human controlled.
USA tends to spend all time doing research. Two events regarding
commitment to Japanese occur...which I expect has impact upon PP
generation. Not certain what impact though.
France survives till July 1 1940.
The germans came in through the maginot line at its most western point.
I had not noticed the attacks till AFTER they were through. Somehow, this
game happening failed to identify the AI attacks except for sea battles.
I suspect this may be a FOW checked box aspect.
Nevertheless, British air tried to transfer to middle east. They rebased to
Marseilles area just before Paris was captured. oops. France refused the
armistice(keep those French navy units working) and hopefully keep the allied
bombers on their way to middle east.
How ELSE does British air get to middle east???
The german navy infested Finistre cape off Portugal...AND had a class reunion
just outside the British Colonies. 3 Brit carrier groups are now enroute to
join the festivities...but the Germans seem reluctant to stay at the party
even though they far outnumber the British participants.
The computer AI...came all across France to capture Belgium and Netherlands.
This seemed counter productive.
The cost of the Polish escapees seriously hampers French rebuilds immediately
after Germany attacked. Those 100 PP took some 15 turns to regain...while the
Maginot line was being carved up. 3 Rows of German invaders!!!
Estonia, Lavia and the other were released by Russia to themselves. Albeit,
their game is set to Human VERY EASY...so as to better build up defences.
The option to build fortifications somewhere on the German border were NOT
done. I am uncertain if forts would be built in Latvia ...when Russia does
NOT control the territory?
The pseudo countries remain "friendly" toward Russia.
Note that Denmark - even when attacked late...fails to join the Allied cause.
This leads to those Polish become British ships doing raider duty outside
Konigsburg trapped in the Baltic...with no way out!!!
This is interpreted as a BUG of the program.
I am uncertain of results of Netherland / Belgium navy units. In other games,
they join the allies. Netherlands did provide some additional 65 STP to Britain
Unlike SMP, Naval Transport points do NOT increase in cost. SMP are best bought
in large quantities at one time. It appears that each time of purchase generates
inflation in the cost of SMP. This could be a bug?
The ability to change Nations to human/AI and change their economic prospects from
hard through easy is appreciated. I question IS this still possible in PBEM?
well. back to playing the allies and finding out if my Brit bombers near Marseilles
still exist, miraculously returned to England or North Afria...or simply disappeared. :(
ps. I may soon be ready to try a PBEM game.
