In the logistics log, there are only 2 lines logging "Rail Points". Examples provided below:
* Rail points BEFORE moving resources: 60,220,716
* Rail points AFTER moving resources: 53,187,408
Some of the things I would like to know is:
* how many "Rail Points" did I have to begin with, at beginning of the turn?
* how many "Rail Points" remained at end of turn?
* doesn't freight movement also consume "Rail Points"? How about BEFORE/AFTER moving freight?
If I am running out of "Rail Points", I would like to know as it would change the way I prioritize avenues of advance and other strategic targets.
As the Soviets, who also have to factor in factory movement, I would think this information is even more critical.
And while on the Logistics Log, what is the significance of the trailing "*****", "!!!!!" annotations, as shown below?
Sighet ships 2083 freight to Constanta *****
Danzig ships 5274 freight to Koenigsberg !!!!!
Koenigsberg ships 6667 freight to Riga !!!!!
Koenigsberg ships 6667 freight to Memel !!!!!
Koenigsberg ships 6667 freight to Liepaja !!!!!
Berlin ships 2598 freight to Suwalki
Botosani ships 3897 freight to Iasi *****
Rzeszow ships 926 freight to Galati *****
Sibiu ships 956 freight to Tulcea *****
Sighet ships 2326 freight to Dorohoi *****
Berlin ships 2878 freight to Chelm
Honestly, I am not even sure what "Rail Points" currently are. There are only 2 references to them in the manual, both point to the Logistics log, without any definition or explanation.
I had thought WiTE2 still used "Rail Points" to abstract trains available, while using "Rail Capacity" to abstract local railroad track availability.
But I must have dreamed this as I cannot find any reference to it. (I think I must have just been filling in the blanks for what has never been fully explained or documented...)
So, what the hell are "Rail Points"? How do they related to "Rail Capacity"?
In quick search of the forums, I asked nearly same question regarding "Rail Points" FIVE months ago, and it went unanswered! [:-]
Does anybody know?
