Re: Why Allied units can not move on territory of USSR?

That rule was introduced several years ago as a response to an exploit - not building Soviet air units/labs at all and sending high tech British fighters there instead.

Re: GS 42-43 Messina ends early

I indeed regret not selling Italian fighter, which ended shot down by stray p-38.
It even does not count for evacuation limit, as it is not ground unit.

Re: GS 42-43 Messina ends early

Well, I think it was still below 18 with 2 static flaks and 2 shore batteries.
I've checked other threads on topic and it looks like evacuation is 'complete' when you receive those air units.
No matter what you do after that (ship units away, disband them), it will be DV after next turn.

GS 42-43 Messina ends early

Briefing says 18 ground units are needed to be evacuated, but I evacuated only 15 or so and scenario still ended with DV on the next turn after prototype air units arrive (turn 11?). I even reloaded autosave, embarked couple of units which were in ports and shipped them from mainland Italy. Still DV...

Softcap mechanics

Probably was asked million times already, but how exactly this thing works? I thought it's based on average unit value, but it seems it's not. I am at start of USA East Coast scenario, game shows Soft cap: 44% and I have 2 empty core slots. Then I buy 2 Volkssturm infantries, as they cost only 60 it...

Re: Sealion and Axis supply

That's island supply model used indeed. After German capture London they get free supply and rail capacity, as before.
But new supply rules make landing in Britain even less attractive option.

Sealion and Axis supply

Have not done Sealion for years, but when I did, I've noted interesting thing. https://i.imgur.com/LvZ8YIf.png Axis have several legit supply sources, but all troops not adjacent to cities/resources still have supply 1 instead of 3 you normally get from city. That rule makes sense for African desert...

Re: What are Soviets doing in the UK?

Transports move through transportation loops just as all other ships.
Not sure if Allied troops can enter USSR, never tried it.
At some stage it was prohibited because of exploit (sending British fighters instead of building any Soviet ones), no idea how it works in current version.

Re: Can invisible subs be hit?

They can.
If unit moves over hidden sub, combat will occur.
To prevent this you can put sub on sentry mode, but even in this case they can be detected with active ASW sweep and attacked.

Re: an "invincible" defence of France (v4.0)

Thats nasty strategy to face, but "Invincible" is exaggeration, if I remember correctly, there are AARed games where France spawn garrisons and UK spawn corps/mot. (even sacrificing lab builds), but Axis still get Paris in August-September 1940.

Re: an "invincible" defence of France (v4.0)

Using British units as fodder to delay fall of France and break Axis game was always here and was always considered "foul play". If Axis player is aware, what going to happen, he will produce ground units instead of labs and break through, but if not - it pretty much works as described. That's basic...

Re: Partizan spam

I have just loaded 1942 scenario and skipped 10 turns in hotseat mode. I've got 13 partisans in USSR (2 of them in ungarrisoned cities), 1 in Yugoslavia and 1 in Poland, strangely 0 in France and Greece. Those numbers don't look huge and they were always like this according to my experience with the...

Re: Possible 4.029 Glitch

I've seen message "Partisans in Egypt" in recent PBEM game, while Allies controlled both Kuwait and Cairo. No actual partisan unit has spawned though.
Have seen messages about Vichy partisans aswell (nowhere to be found on the field too).

Re: GS 4.0 AAR (last update) Plaid (Axis) vs Vokt (Allies)

Actually in 1944 it's typically impossible to place German fighters and even tactical bombers in such way, that they reach Normandy, while staying outside of Allied fighter direct attack range. What can't be reached from England will be in range of fighters and carriers, operating in the Med. Usuall...
