RE: Free Books (sort of)

<t> Thank you all for such kind words. I have not been very active on the forum for some time and I guess I thought my final leaving of the forum would only be of interest to a few old hands. <br/> <br/> I do seem to have been a little brief in my comments (above) and I seem to have started some rum...

RE: 14.2.1.3 Catastrophic Events

<r> I do not recall the exact implementation of this "feature" but it is intended to reflect accidents occuring during any repair. A welders torch starting a fire, a crane dropping a heavy load onto (or though) the ship, a major whoops while unloading ammunition, some minor electrical repair causing...

RE: Troop Convoys loading supplies after troops - stop it!

<t> Amphibious TFs loading minimum supply is actually a fix to alleviate one problem. I'm sorry it caused you a different problem.<br/> <br/> In early playtesting we noticed that players tended to maximize combat units to be loaded without consideration of supplies. This would cause the TF to max ou...

You all are too kind. I'll still be around for a few days until I close out the list of available books. Between now and then I think I'll poke around the forum and see if I can help here and there (or perhaps just cause some mayhem).

RE: Representation of Japanese Infantry Company in OOB


Thanks to all those that responded. I can see that this is a subject well covered by folks more knowledgeable than me. I'll go with their good work.

I recommend the book from the first post as general reading.

RE: Representation of Japanese Infantry Company in OOB


Thanks. Things are starting to make a lot more sense. Still confused over the infantry gun totals.

Looking at lower level organizations is very interesting but I can see that equating them to AE OOBs is quite an art.

RE: Accelerating Drydock Repairs

<t> Overloading a shipyard is effectively forming a queue. Setting ships to higher priority is altering the order of the queue but it is still a queue of ships waiting to be repaired.<br/> <br/> The shipyard will repair ships from the queue as best it can. The queue order may be jumped by a smaller ...
