In the first screen shot, I have used the pathing tooils and chose the Quickest route.

Note the duration is estimated at 10 mins.




In the second screen shot, I have given the move order using the Quickest route. Note the estimate is now 4 hours!









In the third screen shot the move is now complete and it has taken 51 mins!











What am I doing wrong!

I think the duration there is 4 days though this doesn't tally with start/end above. I would suggest the task is still being processed.

Estimate 10 minutes, actual 50 minutes (sounds like the wife getting ready to go out)

In the military everything takes an hour, so I think the timings are spot on!

It's probably ten minutes to do the travelling, which is what the pathing tool estimates, and 41 to do the organising to move.

I imagine the four day thing was the length of the scenario...

If you give other commands, such as Attack, the duration is estimated in that screen in hours and minutes.

It is only the move comand thta estimates 4 days. I suspect a bug.

And the difference between the estomated move time and the actual move time is probably another bug. They moved from friendly territiry to friendly territory. The estimate of 10 mins should have been fairly accurate.  The actual move time of 51 mins is too large a difference.

A battalion sized unit with 4 subordinate companies and two subordinate platoons........41 minutes planning time to dissiminate and execute the move order and 10 minutes to complete the move itself........the planning time seems realistic.....it's the movement time that doesen't.

Click on a battallion HQ unit and give a move order.

When you check the duration it is always the number of days till the scenario is due to end. This is clearly wrong!

Now click on any subordinate. The duration pf the move is an accurate estimate.

Now give an attack order. The duration given by the HQ unit and the duration given by any subordinate are all accurate estimates.

I request that the inaccurate estimate above be corrected.

The planning time was 4 days !

The move time was 51 mins so that sounds right.

Sadly, I think you are being ignored Joe.

Joe,

The task end is not necessarily start plus estimated plan duration. For most orders a task will end at scenario end to ensure that the force doesn't run out of a current task. If you order a force to Move to X, then yes it will first create a Move task to that location. But once there it will defend till the end of the scenario unless ordered otherwise.

Would it better to show the duration as till the end of that direct orders completion?

So as long as something does not happen to delay it, it will take X.

Would be great when planning.

When I give a move order, how long will it take the unit to move there?

Check its actual plan task. To do so, select the unit, hold the contrtol key down and hit the down arrow key. Alternatively, seelct the unit, select its order task and then click again to reveal thea ctual plan task. It will have a grey background instead of the usual white background. Then check the end time in the task data view on the sidebar.

I followed the instruction.

I one again failed. Duration is 4 days!

Once every 6 months I put an hour into the game and find it doesnt work and then close it.








How long will it take to complete any move ???
