Hi there,

TOAW IV is my first TOAW and I love it. The last days I have been playing and learning the game. The manual is sometimes not clear to me and some things seem to be missing.

- How can I find out if I really broke the Line of communication of an enemy unit? I know possession is no clear indicator. For example ist it enough if I drive around the unit in a large circle? Is there no map overlay to see this?

- I like the combat planner, but it seems to be missing the option of a limited attack? I really like the tool, but do O have a comination of roght click menus AND the combat planner? I know I can do everything without the CP, but it would be more elegant if I had every option available in the combat planner.

- Oh and is it possible to abort an attack quickliy in the combat planner *withou* clicking on every icon again? Some abort all attacks button?

More to come, I guess. Thanks in advance.

In the combat planner you can right click on attacking units and choose the type of attack you want. Can also right click and choose group options, for instance to cancel attacks.

If you hover the cursor over a unit in the combat planner, you can use some keyboard shortcuts on that unit.

Units that are out of supply have a black health dot in the upper right corner.

Lines of Communication are not blocked by hex ownership. They are only blocked by enemy units, by hexes adjacent to enemy units that are not occupied by friendly units, and by terrain that can't be crossed by motorized movement.
