I see you adhere to the school of thought that bis dat qui cito dat.

Next time inform your opponent your status is adsum.

Maybe Fabertong is a short variant of Quintus Fabius Maximus Verrucosus ?

Just an idea [8D]

bis dat qui cito dat

Translation: "He gives twice who gives quickly."

Are you saying I acted hastily in my decisions about how to employ Lex and Enterpise that turn or the next one?

I certainly took chances with them and put them in harm's way, but the decisions weren't made hastily. Due mostly to the PBY squadrons at Wake, Midway, French Frigate, etc., I had alot of good information, so could make informed (if risky and possibly unwise decisions, as events to come may prove).

As far as I know, that Latin phrase is implying praise, not negativev criticism of giving quickly.

Ah, I see. THanks, Hartwig.

I sure can botch up understanding my native tongue. Add in Latin and it becomes Wal-Mart on ice.

Dave sent an email this morning. It seems he didn't receive the email I sent Wednesday morning. I re-sent it and he ran the 001 within a half hour, sending it and the combat report. He hasn't sent the next turn file yet, which I need to see to fully understand the situation. Here's a summary:

1. No interactions between any enemy forces and Lexington or Enterprise.
2. KB moved south, to just about Lex's last position, and rendezvoused there with his AO fleet.
3. To the best of my knowledge, enemy patrols didn't pick up Lexington (if she moved 8 to 10 hexes, as ordered, she may be about 10 or 11 hexes SSW of KB).
4. Enemy patrols did pick up CA Indianapolis, near Lex's position.
5. I believe Dave will conclude "that (Indianapolis) is as likely a position as any other" for Lex.
6. If he sends KB at flank speed (having refueled) he'll likely pick up and pick off Lex.
7. That may be determined by whether KB made the mid-ocean rendezvous with the AOs this turn and refueled, or whether they still need to refuel at the start of next turn.

Darned tense situation. Danged box canyon Lex found herself in (thanks to me and an enemy sub). A lot of fun.

For your "81" experience pilots, if you have the dedicated training squadrons then put them in there. Otherwise, put ONE such pilot in a squadron that is training pilots and the trainees will improve a lot faster. If you have the extra airframe squadrons that you can buy out for PPs, pilots train there a lot faster as well but they may have only a high 30 exp but a 70 skill. With an experienced pilot there, they will also gain experience faster.

...


More than one. Every pilot that has:
1. below 50 XP
2. Below average XP for the unit

has an additional help in training.

So ideally you want to put 3-4 high XP pilots that will draw the average XP above the XP of the trainees. Then the average XP and the rookies' XP go up together.

There is a file in the Doc directory of the game that explains what factors help training. It is acalled "Pilot training addendum" or something like that. It had Addendum in the name for sure.




Lokasenna -> RE: Intellectus Ex Nihilo (Wal-Mart on Ice) (12/14/2018 4:26:15 PM)

Yeah, I'm pretty sure that was innuendo. But what do I know? Not a Latin speaker.




Canoerebel -> RE: Intellectus Ex Nihilo (Wal-Mart on Ice) (12/14/2018 5:09:35 PM)

In other words, there's a lot of uncertainty about what Alfred meant? If so, that makes me feel better (that I wasn't being exceptionally obtuse).

Somehow, you seem not to be in a state of peace of mind with this operation. Suffering while waiting for the outcome of the next turn... jumping in defensively at quotes... Care to elaborate why? Bad consciene due to use of strategic assets tactically? Fear that having played John IIIrd too long, his aggressive, risky style did rub up on you?

So far, my impression was always you are the cool, calculating "You've got to crack a few eggs to make an omelette" type of player who is willing to invest to gain profit in the long run... [8D]

My interpretation of it was that it was a comment on your enthusiasm to do turns, turns, turns! An eager lover, as it were.

Perhaps, ah... overeager?




Canoerebel -> RE: Intellectus Ex Nihilo (Wal-Mart on Ice) (12/14/2018 5:45:59 PM)

Hey, Hartwig.

A day later, when I read my reply to Alfred's post, it immediatley came across to me as "defensive." That surprised me, because that was not the intended tone. It was meant as nothing more than an attempt to get clarification, so that I could fully understand. So the perception that I was "jumping defensively" would be understandable but actually not accurate. But that's on me, as I had failed to communicate adequately.

I have no regrets about how I've used Lex and Ent (unless Lex sinks, in which case I'll have the usual regret).

John's style didn't rub off, I think. I've been playing Erik (Obvert) for a year, doing pretty much the same things I've always done.

Now, I bet I've failed to communicate my thoughts well here, too. Mainly, the situation with Ent and Lex is about the most fun thing possible. It's been a blast and has me on the edge of my seat. I'm glad people are reading, especially so many old-timers, like Alfred. If he reads my comment that same way that you (and others?) did, then it'll seem that I was being discourteous, therefore prompting him to conclude, "Why bother?" And that I would indeed regret.

Hey Dan, good luck with this new match. Should be a lot of fun! [8D]

Regarding your sync bug, you and Dave should ensure you both are running exactly the same patch and/or beta patch levels. That's the cause of 95% of sync issues.




Canoerebel -> RE: Intellectus Ex Nihilo (Wal-Mart on Ice) (12/14/2018 7:23:01 PM)

Thanks, Mike. That is the issue here, so I'll try to get it resolved with Dave.

CenPac:
This is fascinating. Dave made many right calls but Lex managed to avoid detection today. With each day, the area he has to consider increases quickly, so he has to find her soon. How is his fuel state? How deep can he go without disrupting his other plans? How intent is he (I think very).

CenPac: The Enterprise half of the equation. She's probably safe from enemy carriers and combat vessels, though not from subs.

Can Eric press South so hard he moves from one game to another? [8D]




Canoerebel -> RE: Intellectus Ex Nihilo (Wal-Mart on Ice) (12/14/2018 10:16:56 PM)

Yes, he can. [:)]

I knew that was inevitable. I've tried to avoid doing it. I knew it was inevitable that I couldn't.

I wonder how long it will be before I have John III involved too?

Around the same time that you encounter a vortex and you notice F-14 Tomcats on your carriers.

If the Lady Lex or any damaged ships moves off map, you can set the task force to full speed and not get any more damage nor burn fuel.

Going back to the training of your pilots, I am sure that you will find pilots with 50+ experience but with skills less than 50. These pilots can also be used in training squadrons to increase the experience but not the skill levels. But the trainees can get to the skill level of 70 on their own. It is the 81+ experience level pilot that will help all of the other pilots. I have also had those 81+ pilots increase their skill levels while training other pilots. I believe that the experience correlates to the number of hours flying and what to do when something breaks when you are flying. This would then help pilots successfully return and land a damaged aircraft instead of crashing and burning.

33rd Division begins the game prepping (or 100% prepped) for Rangoon. In Japan. He's likely upgrading/filling it out since it's split into 3rds.

Allies Ships Sunk: The list, sorted by victory points. Six days into the war, losses seem modest, at least compared to what I think I remember from previous games.

The Japanese attack at Pearl was successful in inflicting heavy damage but managed only one sinking.

In the DEI, Dave sent strong TFs down the South China Sea and then another dow the east side of Mindanao that then veered over to Sorong. Purely by luck, the escape route for Allied ships fleeing the Philippines split the difference, steaming down the Makassar Strait.

I've done a few other things differently, including using Full Speed much more frequently.

Small xAKs and xAKLs are transporting supply to Singers, which has 70k+. It should exeed 80k tomorrow.

Allied combat vessels have tried for some intercept and have taken some losses (a few DDs).

I think you also may have confused Sorong and Sabang in an earlier post (or my brain could have confused this with another AAR). Sorong is on the western tip of New Guinea; Sabang is on the western tip of Sumatra. I do the same with Naga and Naha.

I teach an adult Sunday school class at my little country church. One Sunday last year, the lesson was about being accepting of others. One class member said that it could be challenging for an outsider to feel welcome in a small community. She added, "I was talking to my French mule...."

Sunday school discussions sometimes veer wildly off track, so a teacher has to think on the fly and maintain appropriate order. My thoughts cycled through possibilities until it occurred to me that a "French mule" might be social media slang for "my BFF" or the like. I interrupted the lady: "Your French mule?"

She looked at me askance. "I said, 'my friend, Shmool'!"
