Hi Wobbleguts,

On the very first Allied turn of the 1939 campaign, on my end the French can move their air into the UK as well as move their ships into UK ports (if unoccupied). Can you confirm?

If not, please send me a turn to support@furysoftware.com and I'd be happy to take a look.

Hi Hubert,

Have started a new game now - deleted the old one. When Germany conquered Holland and Belgium I tried moving some french naval units to UK ports and this time it works.

So that's good. Don't know why it didn't work in the last game but it does now. However, I did do something in the last game that may have been the cause. As I said at the beginning of this thread, in my previous game I wanted to basically abandon France and move troops to Malaya/HK instead. When the BEF deployed in France, I immediately re-deployed 1 of the units to SE Asia.

A few turns later (when France was doomed) I tried to move some French naval to UK ports but couldn't do it (which is when I posted about this new problem). Also, I was unable to move/do anything with my BEF infantry. I think I had 2 INF units in France at this time and 1 HQ. The HQ was at a port and I was able to evacuate it, but I couldn't order the INF unit(s) to do ANYTHING. They were in supply, had good morale, action points available but couldn't move/attack/operate. They just sat there and got smashed.

Did my premature evacuation of a BEF unit affect FR/UK relations? I didn't get any messages but maybe that's the cause.

This time, I started evacuating UK units quite late and everything seems to be working. Also French naval can base in CW ports so it's all good. Haven't tried air and land units but will do so.

I always like to end a post with a question so here goes. Now that I can move French units to the UK, if they become free french when France surrenders (20% chance) will they stay in the UK or get magically whisked away to a French colony?

Update: I moved about 5 French naval units, an air unit and an HQ to the UK before Paris fell. For this game, I deleted the event for France quitting (morale fail) when Paris is conquered. It worked, and the French are still fighting. Well, when I say fighting, they are getting slaughtered, but they haven't surrendered and are still defending what should now be Vichy France.

After Paris fell, I moved a French HQ unit to Bordeaux, put it on a TP and tried to dock in London. Same problem as my previous game - can't do it. It is stuck at the mouth of Thames esturary and can't unload.

Is the port empty? It would need to be clear of naval units in order to unload, e.g. get the transport unit into port and then unload etc.

Additionally, if you are able to get your transport into port, you would need an empty adjacent hex for the transport to unload into, is there one available?

No, that would have zero effect. It is really just a game mechanic where cooperative nations can enter each others territory and events or placement of units from events would not have an impact.

They would stay in the UK and change to UK control.

Port was empty and adjacent hexes were clear. Couldn't get the TP into port.

I think 1 or 2 of them did.

That would be correct as it is a 20% chance per unit, not 20% chance that they would all become Free French etc.

Unfortunately I cannot repeat this in any way, if you come across this again, please send me a turn that I can take a look at to see what might be happening.
