Hello to all, I'm making scenarios and I'd like to ask you guys some questions.
A) First of all: how to make formations. In the Force Editor it seems you have to create units in a specific order if you want to be able to attach them to formations, because the editor either makes you attach the unit to the latest formation or to a new one. No possibility to attach it to, say, the first formation in the list, right?
Is there a way to circumvent this?
B) Mostly, I intend on creating corps-sized scenarios. For simplicity, let's say every Corps will have 4 Divisions, a Support Brigade and 1 Corp HQ Btn. My goal is to make coordination between units a non-trivial factor, so you need to organize your forces instead of selecting whatever it is at hand with no repercussions.
Should I make different Formations for every Division? In this case Every Division will be Internal Support, the Support Brigades be Army Support and the Corps HQ be Army Support as well. In this example every unit has the same exact color scheme. This would be much more work since point (A) seems to imply i'll have to carefully create every division from scratch since there seems to be no way to copy a division without screwing up formations.
Or should I put every unit in the same Formation? In this case Every Division will be Army Support, the Support Brigades be Force Support and the Corps HQ be Force Support as well. Different Corps icons will have the same background color and different unit color. This makes coordination simpler and in single-corps scenarios effectively useless since every unit will cooperate at 100% every time.
C) Every Division will have Divisional HQ with 1 Command Group. I want Division HQ to be valuable, and losing the Group should have repercussions. The Corps HQ will have 4 Command Groups.
Now, the Divisional HQ will have 30 Support Squad, and the Corps HQ will have 80.
Are those good numbers for my formations? From the manual it seems they are, but how does it work? If the Corps HQ is in a different Formation than the various Divisions, how will it give its supply bonus?
