I just updated to 1.04. Need help. After planning a short range mission from Sicily, on return path one bomber group tried to go to England. Unit was destroyed over France. Shuttle was not used. Can this be fixed? Not overly happy with new weather model (too complicated)

Do you have a save before you ran the action phase?

No coding was done on the weather model, we just changed how the information was displayed. I can see though how some people relied on the old % number and either didn't care or found it easier to calculate the ceiling themselves.

It has done it again, I saved file this time 91st BG mission missed primary target, then went west about 50 miles then went east for over 100. Lost 20 to 30 units before rtb. This is really annoying and makes game unrealistic. I previously owned Talonsoft version and don't remember anything like this happening, suicide units??

Is there any progress on this issue? Still happening to me. Latest is 2 bg out of 8 going back to hamburg from Dutch coast. Units at 29 and 31 when they turned back one picked up a straggler to 32 ac. The other went to 28. Will check replay to see what happened to that. This confirms to me that units turn back to collect stragglers.
