Not sure what you see. Do you not see the compass symbol if you select a unit with available movement and hover over another nearby hex?

Is it possible to see the numerical value of detection levels? According to the manual (10.2.2) it should still be visible in the pop up when you mouse over enemy units. However, this isn't the case at the present.


Numeric values are not in this game. That wasn't carried over from the original. 10.2.2. refers to the fact that if you use the shift-t option (also on the map tab), you can see unit detection. 10.2.3 goes on to explain it is the differing shades of color that tell you what the relative value is.


Ok, thanks for the explanation!

Sorry gids, the Enhanced TB check box is not any sort of AI Assist. You still have to control all movement in and out. What that check box does is allow you to move units out of the box that you might otherwise not be allowed to do as well as cancel transfers of on-map units scheduled for other theater boxes.

The Set Reserve TB Arrival Hex only tells the AI where to send units once you designate them for transfer either through the CR unit tab Transfer option or the TB box by right clicking the unit and choosing the place they should go.

CaesaerCzech - you get the AI Air Assist to move AOGs through the STANCE you give them. You can use the Commander Report - Air - AOG tab to change the STANCE or you can left click on the on-map label to do so. The stance to use for moving closer to the front is ADVANCE (imagine that!). Please note that the AI Air Assist is very good at determining where air bases in good logistical support are and it will only move AOGs to such air bases.

And don't forget whether on flexible or advance, you need to move the HQ the air command is following forward if you want the air command air groups to move forward. So if you are following 18th Army, you need to move your 18th Army HQ forward into the general area where you want the air units to base.

You also have to assign the air groups to HQ's, and then they will only move when the HQ moves. Ie. if Luftlotte 4 is assigned (FHQ) to Army Group Center, and you never move the AGC unit, then the planes wont move either.

At least I think that's how it goes...

JG 54 from Luftflotte 1 had more planes after the air phase in T1 than before.
Does the airforce get‘s new planes before the normal turn ends?
I thought this would happen in the logistic phase?

Is it possible to view all the Air Bases in the Commander's Report, with Supply, Fuel, Ammo, Support, Vehicles, Capacity etc, to make it easier to move Air Groups from one base to another, rather than having to click on all the Air Bases on the map, to find a suitable location?

Yes, you can filter airbases. The aircraft numbers are on the main tab and supply tab has men, fuel, guns, ammo in raw #s and % needed.

Pretty sure you're seeing air craft repairing day to day during the week as opposed to replacements which occur in the logistics phase.

Thanks, I took a look again and you are right. The difference has come from repaired aircrafts.
Such an incredible detailed game.

When changing a ground unit's HQ assignment, and then attacking with that ground unit, does it receive HQ assistance in exactly the same way as if it had been assigned to that HQ from the start of the turn?

good question, I'd say yes as it should be keying off command chain at the moment of combat.

edit - here I'm working with an analogy to how GS works when you set it up, add a division to a targetted corp and it can draw off the preset GS.

That's how I understand it but want to check...

How do you manually return air groups from reserve to AOGs in the scenarios where the theatre box is disabled?

I can see the air groups in the OOB but can't seem to give any commands to them?

you can order them to the map either using the air command label or via the airbase

Is there a limit on how many Air Directives can created each turn? Is there a disadvantage (penalty) if too much AD are created?

There is a limit of 32 Air Directives per Air Command. There are no penalties based on the number of Air Directives.

I haven't found this in the manual. Do City Fort Units can be forced to retreat as normal units?

yes, there is nothing to the city fort apart from the enhanced stacking and the rules for enter/leave.

So it's a method for making super strong units? I guess they aren't moving normally at least.
