This is so cool. I remember using an earlier version in my last campaign and it was superb for trying to work out what Japanese units were defending a particular base. Thanks so much for making my life that little bit easier and more fulfilling.
So, I am planning to invade base X. Is there any way I can look for any reference to base X in the sigint and combat reports, to see what has been reported planning for, at the base, shipping to the base or having actually fought at the base?
First off, there will be a Garrison Report that combines queries to SigInt and Combat report data. That will come after some other things get done, but the idea is that by specifying a base you will get a report on any enemy LCU that has been reported at the base (SigInt, Combat), on the way to the base (SigInt), planning for the base (SigInt) and maybe other things we think of by then.
For now, in the SigInt report you can filter and sort to see whatever SigInt data is there. In SigInt the "Base" field is often the object of attention: planning for, based at, moving to, etc. Filter on the base you are interested in and see what turns up. Remember to sort helpfully too. If you filter on that base and sort first by "Subject", then by "Date", you will see any records for each LCU interested in the base grouped together. That will make it easier to tell how many different LCU you are dealing with. Of course, if an LCU was at the target but then later seen somewhere else you want to know that. So after you get a list of LCU you might want to paste those names into a filter (sorting by Subject and Date) to see where is the most recent place each one turned up. The Garrison Report will carry out that second step automatically when it is implemented.
You should also looked at the LCU Report (one of the Combat reports) and likewise filter on Location, sorting by LCU and Date. That report lists all LCU which have been seen in a combat report, whether ground combat, air strikes, naval bombardment... any appearance of an LCU in a combat report. In the LCU Report you should also filter by side to include only enemy units in case you had some of your LCU at the base previously. And the same as with SigInt applies to determine if an enemy LCU has moved elsewhere since it was seen there. Again, this will be done automatically by the Garrison Report when it is implemented.
