Check your Intelligence screen, the incoming ships, see if you have any available. If so, you can do so at a port if there are enough supplies. I am sure that this is covered somewhere in the manual.

It took me about 3 min. to find this post and about 10 min. to make the graphic.

You need to work on your Forum search skill.

I did do a search for landing craft and virtually came up with really anything stating how to create landing craft, and i did also check the "available" ships which showed nothing to be available until the latter part of 42. And i would probably not find the thread with a title name "RE: Admirals Edition Naval Thread II". I do see that building up large amounts of supply does assist??? Plus your pics date shows May 25, 1944 mind i am in mid 1942.

It does not matter the date, the concept is the same. I wonder, can you comprehend that?

The Landing Craft deployed from Pools (known around here as Pool Craft) by expending supply are very short ranged, with very small capacities, and useful only within island chains. You won't start getting them added to your Pool until either late '42 or early '43 (can't recall specifically).

The types that enter as Ship type reinforcements have greater range and capacities and can be used in longer raged invasions. You don't start getting those until early '43.

The dedicated Military ship type transports (AP and AK and later APA and AKA) ARE amphibious invasion ship types. They carry the small landing craft you are looking, Their landing craft are not visible as ship types, but are abstracted into those ship types unloading rates across beaches. AP and AK types have much higher unloading rates than xAPs and xAKs (civilian ships conscripted into military srevice). APAs and AKAs have even higher (astronomical) rates.

Many of your early APs and AKs will upgrade to APAs and AKAs in 3/43. Protect them at all costs and use them only in heavily protected and non-risky invasions in '42.

British and Commonwealth have a few ship types (xAKs and AMCs) that can be converted to LSI(L)s and/or LSI(M). These are equivalent to APAs. Find these ships and harbor this resource until it can be used effectively.

I found that in the manual. It continues on and describes how to do it. WOW!

It was rude that he complained that someone trying to assist him that he complained that the dates on the picture posted is different than the date in his game. Is there supposed to be a different way to do things based upon the date in the game? Without knowing what date it is in his game, how can it be explained to him that they are not available yet?

He had been repeatedly been asked to post pictures but he did not do so until much later. He would reword the same question trying to get the answer that he wanted. He kept referring to another game entirely as to how things worked there even though he was informed that it is a different game and works differently.

It also appears that he does not read the manual but expects people to help him to play the game. I do not mind helping people with problems but they should try to help themselves first.

He's ALWAYS rude, has been with me since jump, and i'm sure since his over 10,000 posts he's been rude to others. He's just a flat out jerk (and thats putting it politely) He is right maybe i should be reading the manual a lil more, but i always look on youtube for their helpful videos & do searches here on the message boards (which i do do whether hr brlieves it or not). But he comes off rude ALL THE TIME, he trolls these message boards like crazy, he must not have anything better to do. I'm guessing he must be retired and mad at the world so he looks for people to correct. I was gonna ask him to be my friend but not no more

To RangerJoe, You are a little harsh to ScottyG. Yes, he should use the manual more. But remember we share a common interest...this game. That should count for something.

To ScottyG, He is grumpy sometimes (see the Grumpy Geezer thread). He has been nice to me so far. I'm new to the forum, but not to the game. Remember that he was the first to arrive and answer your question, as he usually does.

Youtube can't be all that helpful because you keep coming here for correct information.

As to you searching the forum for answers, well you can't be competent at that task because you consistently fail to retrieve the relevant answers, a task which others consistently achieve in this and the other threads you open.

As to "rudeness", maybe you should read up on Matrix's forum rules. The only poster in this thread I've seen who has not complied with them is you. You should consider yourself lucky no one has complained to the Moderator and your posting privilege remains for now.

And for these reasons I've stopped responding to his posts.



Please understand this, this game is extremely involved and has more layers than an onion. I've spent many years tilting at this windmill, and others have spent more. If you are not willing to put in the time and effort, we can't teach you the game. Not that I don't want to, I just don't have the time. Especially since I started that other 'time vampire' of a game, MWiF.
