That is not the problem I describe.
I have changed drop hex, from one initial to an new one, after doing what you describe, which works fine for me to.
Now the unit will randomly show the new, or the old drop hex target.
When I have multiple para units on the same air base, with multiple targets, they take turns on showing new, old and random targets hex alternativs, depending on which order I click the radio buttons.
Even if I assign the correct new hex, and this registers, the next time I check, it will still point to the old location, the third time the correct one, without me not having done anything, but check the radio buttons to indicate which para unit is active.
So, yeah, the workaround might be to only use one para brigade per air base and never change the target hex.
ok, went back over my saves for an instance where I can put two brigades on the same airbase, as below just swapped between them and selected a different target hex.
did nothing but open F9, select airborne, select one brigade left click on a target, select the other and left click on a different target hex.
Clearly you are doing/seeing something different but not sure why it doesn't work as above?
Thanks for your input and efforts.
What you describe is what I experience too, so far.
- It would be great if you exit, then go back into the paradrop menu again, then check if the paras keep their new destination hex, you set the first time in the menu.
- Then select the paraunits a couple of times, with the radiobuttons, and check if the allocated target hex remains the same, or shows different ones, like for me.
Again, I can assign a target hex, I can change it to a new one, like you comfirm here.
The issue is that when re-checking if the changes "stick", the para target hexes differ from one time to another, as I select the para units. Like the order didnt stick, or that system shows the old or new hex intermittently or randomly. Or like you actually have 2 hexes selected, the new and the old, and the system shows them both each other time you select the unit.
Also as I described above, after giving one para unit a new destination hex, the next para unit I select, will have that exact same hex selected to in the map arrow interface (although in actuality it has another hex, previously pointed to and assigned with the coordinates). So I click around a bit more, selecting units, and the next time it will show the correct targets hex.
I suspect here there is a minor bug, and the system remains indicating the same target location hex, after you select a new para unit in the same hex, although this is just showing the wrong target hex, but in effect, the unit really has the correct, other target. So its just a visual glitch.
Its hard to describe more precise like this. A screen shot wouldnt help, since you have to select different para units on the same air base multiple times, for the glithch to appear.
Its this or I am doing something wrong, but I am follwing your exact steps above, its just that I have re-assigned a new hex from the original one, and not just chosen an inital drop hex. That works just fine.
Hope this explains the problem better.
