I haven't been feeling well the past couple days (I think I had an allergic reaction to some meds), but I'm feeling better now. Onwards!
I've resolved my problems with USMC divisions and Soviet rifle corps. To do this, I've had to compress TO/Es to 21 (and even 19 sometimes) equipment slots. Very painful and it's going to take a lot of time to go through the entire OOB re-organizing units.
But I'm now having problems with airborne units. As far as I can tell, when it comes to transport equipment, whether Airborne Movement Allowed has been selected is irrelevant. For example, the Truck equipment does not have Airborne Movement Allowed. And yet when trucks are assigned to an airborne unit, those trucks will fly along with the rest of unit when performing an airborne operation. Further, if I create an equipment called Light Motor Transport (Jeeps, etc.) that I specifically want to have Airborne Movement Allowed, it does not. You ask yourself, who cares? Well, trucks are roadbound and I want Light Motor Transport to not be roadbound. So, today my trucks which are roadbound and do not have Airborne Movement Allowed fly along with their airborne unit, while my light motor transports which are not roadbound and do have Airborne Movement Allowed are left behind.
This matters, because in the world of TOAW unintended consequences cause problems in other unexpected areas. I don't want to simply accept that trucks are broken when it comes to airborne movement only to spend several months working only to discover that there was another problem with trucks and I just wasted a lot of time. So I need to resolve this now, while I'm dealing with transportation problems.
I believe that if I can resolve this issue, then I'll be ready to get back to OOB work. I'll have to test some boundary conditions first, but today I think that once the airborne problem is solved (am I overconfident?) that I'll be able to provide players with transportation values they can trust (given that I can't edit TVs directly). At the very least they'll be consistent, which means that even if you don't trust them, the TVs I'll provide will be directly linked to the aircap, seacap, and railcap based on those TVs and transportation will work consistently. And that is not the case with TOAW today, which is what started all this.
