I hope the Devs can allow Paras to un-prepare (should the weather be bad) and move as usual during the same turn. Right now you set your para on prepare, and it rains, then your Para is stuck, while your comrades are desperately trying to hold a port across the channel.
Right now without a weather forecast kind of function, you can never decide if you should set your Para on prepare or not. You set it to prepare, then it rains every month. As soon as you un-prepare, then it's sunshine next month...
Ha! Love that one, eh? All dressed up and no umbrella. Them paratroops aren't moving. Then, you get stranded 2 turns in a row, get ticked off, and un-prep, then the rain stops.
It's come to a point, where the Cookie Cutter manual should map out the weather lines. You put a paratroop on both sides of the Jet Stream, might be able to move one of them. The classic "Operand Low Counters turn #3" you gotta go North of the Jet Stream for that Tactical/Medium/1-fighter cover.
I'd actually love some battles in Vietnam & Burma, but it's a miracle if you units can get Supply 5. Then toss in monsoons. Swapping positions is more valuable than Mech Movemnt. In Burma to India, I love the one-way road trail to nowhere. Should be a sign there. "Move here, you don't have enough calories to turn around and go back".
