Need to dump the scenario and take a look at the events.

Time to work supply in my scenario and I need to see how others work the ebb and flow of supply points, values, throw range, ownership etc.

Thought I found one a few days ago that changed supply back and forth depending on who owned the port, but now I can't find it! Figures...

You just place a supply point at a location for BOTH sides. It will appear and be used by the side that owns the hex. Once the other side captures it, it will convert to their own supply point for supply, and back and forth.

Mostly used for ports, but can be anywhere. In the editor, you can recognize those "two supply points in same location" because its a "shared" color, as apposed to blue or red.

The campaign has a complex supply situation.

In some cases capturing a Japanese supply point does not help the Allies. It took the Allies quite some time to get a convoy supply line up to speed. Japanese had similar issues due to the Cactus Air Force (mostly)

Trying to convert the information on logistics I have into the way TOAW handles supply is a bit challenging!

Looking for other scenario's that have "creative" use of Events to handle their unique supply issues. Scenario Dumps can be helpful.

D-Day to the Ruhr has a pretty complex Supply Dynamic for the Allies.

Dang, you must be a programmer type - Ha! Thanks for the input, I'm looking through it.

I think Korea 50-51 has some supply changes as well, but nothing especially complicated.
