...I'd appreciate any help on this matter - if I am doing something awfully wrong here - great :D - means we don't have to start over again and the Allies can lose a few days...
Yep, you are doing something very wrong.
You must not attempt to move oil from the West Coast. It is all needed by the refineries in North America. There is zero daily surplus for export. A very common mistake made by inexperienced Allied players is to see the small oil stockpile surplus and assume they can export it. Don't. That very small surplus stockpile is almost certainly less than the amount you are trying to load onto your 4 tankers. (see earlier threads of about 12 months ago re the "bugs" which ensued if you attempted to do what you are trying)
Other than oil from the SRA which should end up being captured by Japan, the only place where you will mfind a surplus of oil for the Allies is at Abadan, and the only place which needs to import oil to maintain its refineries at full production, is Australia. The Abadan daily surplus equals exactly the daily Australian oil shortfall.
well - there was exactly 60000 oil stockpiled in Los Angeles at the start, when I ordered the loading - and, yes the Oil was meant for Australia, as there isn't enough there on the long run :D ....
the Tanker Convoy has exactly a load capacity of 37500 tons, as I precisely wanted to avoid of getting too much load capacity for that task - so if you say it's zero surplus then it should have loaded the oil...no? - but I can live with not moving oil from there....that solves however not the issue I think
still that doesn't explain the Cargo TFs that are not loading at all! - let's leave aside the Oil convoy for a moment - are there any reasons for the multiple Cargo TFs all over the West Coast not loading?
if someone could explain that for me, it'd be great!
PS: just to clarify, I'm not here to complain about the game, I just really want to get my Convoy for Australia going... - it worked well in a short game against the AI - where I did exactly the same thing (with 2 TKs of Oil too , totalling about 20000 Oil back then)...
