Air Group Problems.

Post by xhoel »

Playing GC 43-45 with East Front Control turned off.

The Withdrawal list has a few problems. First it shows units deployed to the East and notes their withdrawal. This shouldn't be the case, since these units have nothing to do with the War in the West nor do you have control over the Eastern Front. This simply adds clutter to the list and makes it hard to get a grasp on which units are actually withdrawing from the West (the theater which you care about and have control on).

Shown below is the withdraw of Finnish fighters deployed in the East. Why is this shown at all? What is the whole purpose of this? Also shown is the withdraw of the III./TG 1 also deployed in the east.

This brings me to the second problem. If you click on this unit, you can choose to send them West at the cost of 1 AP. The unit will show to the NR and you can use them normally. Is this WAD?

Any feedback would be appreciated!

with 1.02.59 you can't open these units from the reinforcments screen.
I'm wondering too why the EFB units are shown there at all, the air part is not behaving like the land part which seems to work properly (EFB on = EFB units marked in red, no EFB = no EFB units shown)

When this was posted, it was 1.02.57. Latest version still has them which is annoying since they shouldn't show if the EF box is off.

I hope something can be done to fix this. Thanks for answering Denniss.

I tried to replicate this with .59 on a newly started GC43 and I could not replicate this behaviour. None of the listed airgroups opened (via doubleclick) unless it was an existing onmap unit (assigned to airbase). Not even a unit in nat reserve opened.

Do you have a save with exact steps to replicate?

I tested it on a new 43-45 GC.

You can't open them but you can still see them in the withdrawal/arrival list which clutters it and is unnecessary.

From my POV as long as the EF Box is off, these units shouldn't show up, that's all.

I agree idealy these shouldn't show up in the screen, but given priorities, I doubt this will get changed as we're focused on WitE2 and it uses different reinforcement screen code and different conditions re theater boxes than WitW.
