Ok thanks. I have not even started down that road yet. Not even sure how to find the screen for it.

If the ship sais it cannot make it from South Africa to East Coast it still can because its off map. Right?

Yes. If both origin and destination ports are off-map and directly connected, no fuel is used and no damage is incurred. You should not refuel your ships in CT where fuel is scarce. Set them to "Do Not Refuel" until your TF arrives in EC USA, Canada or GB.

Managing your scarce political points is one of the most important parts of the game. The key is to develop a plan of at least six months hence (where you want to be with your forces, what to develop, what to defend) and then decide what units you want to have to accomplish that. Then prioritize which units you will spend points on first (to make them movable) and whether you need to spend points getting a better leader for the unit. It's very hard - there are some terrible leaders out there that you just cannot afford to change unless the unit is about to go into a critical battle.

One of the benefits of making the plan above is that you can buy land units early, before they fill out their TOE with actual devices. You save a lot of PP that way.

Absolutely NEVER set a restricted unit you plan to buy out to accept replacements.

Buy out cost is based on strength. The cost goes up as the depleted unit fleshes out its TOE.

To the latter point, in the unit screen in the upper left corner you'll see its current HQ assignment. ("Australia Command" or "US Pacific Fleet") Note that not every unit can be changed - if the text is the same color as the unit name, etc., then it can't be changed. If it is a different color you can click on it. You'll get a loooonnnggg list of every HQ in the game on the left, and to the right it will tell you how many PP it will cost to change the HQ. The only reason to change a land unit is to go to an unrestricted HQ (one without an "R" by the HQ name). It does not matter which unrestricted HQ you go to, but I find it helpful to pick something in the right general area to help me keep track of what's going on. Scroll to the HQ you want, click it, confirm your choice.

Yes, you don't have to worry about refueling.

Will do!

In general about cargo ships.
I have a feeling I am adding alot of work for myself.
I am sending cargo ships to South Africa empty and basong them there. Then will send them back with fuel supplies etc. Same thing with Oz ships. I am setting home port at Jave cities then send them back to Oz.
Is there a way of senting a ship to a port loading then comeing back home?



The Continuous Supply setting is what you are looking for. When toggling the Human Control/Computer Control yellow text in the TF interface one of the choices as you keep clicking is Continuous Supply.

Once set a CS TF will ply back and forth between home port, where it loads whatever you initially set it to load, travels to the destination port, delivers the goods and returns home to reload for another trip. Waypoints in both directions and refueling can be set as desired.

This is how most experienced players set up their logistics.

I'll rename then such as Pearl Fuel, Pearl Supply so if I happen to spot one of them plying the ocean and and examine it I am not left wondering what that TF is up to.

My current game is in early February 1946. I have had CS TFs delivering supply and fuel to Pearl since I set them up in early '42. Most of the ships in those TFs never implemented any of their potential upgrades as they have been slaved to convoy duty for the entire game. Pearl has 10 million supply and 5 million fuel.

Of course this can only be used over sea lanes that are relatively safe. Delivering supply and fuel to front line ports still needs to be done manually, but most of the back areas, once secured can be set up for automated delivery.

There is also an Auto Convoy mechanism in the game I am not sure I am referring to be the correct name. In this mechanic you assign transport ships and escorts to a pool that the game AI uses to set up TFs to deliver supplies only when needed to any base that is set to participate in the Auto Convoy system. I don't know of a single player who uses this mechanic. Most players are loathe to surrender assets to AI control as it typically doesn't use them efficiently.


I use Autoconvoy extensively in rear areas using xAKL's for small local runs

What I would do in Rangoon is get a job catching crabs. They need a lot of crab there, as you know, to use in their main export product.

'One Night in Rangoon' just isn't catchy enough. I wonder what other cities the guys from ABBA considered...

Phuket? Saigon? Manila? Singers? San Fran? Cape Town?

Pop into The Strand and get a martini at the bar under the ceiling fans.

Originally it was Saigon, but their American record company made them change it- a touchy subject in the '70s.

This is established F.A.C.T. I read it on the internet.

I had heard that Murray Head sang the song, but was unaware that Bjorn and Benny from ABBA were involved in the writing of the song. Interesting.

All of the music for the musical "Chess" was written by Benny and Bjorn of ABBA, not just the One Night in Bangkok song.  Tim Rice wrote the book.  Sir Andrew was not interested in participating in a Cold War musical project.
