Re: Locked units and MTSG

Ahh - in that case I'm afraid I don't have much to offer. If we're to believe the description in the tool-tip it seems obvious that since it's not attacked itself the locked unit wouldn't be released. I can't recall any instance to the contrary so I'd go with you on that point.

Re: Locked units and MTSG

I think it probably does. If you put together all the bits and pieces I've just churned through, and if by "neighbours" you mean friendly units in the same region, the answer is "no" - you're not correct. Provided that the system selects them into the combat, using a method which...

Re: Locked units and MTSG

Okay, this has gotten way too opaque. As noted above all the German units starting in Breslau are identified as being inside the fort. The fort is attacked/assaulted - can't tell which order was in play. But the only unit shown to be defending in the battle graphic is the fortress! That would fit yo...

Re: Locked units and MTSG

That's an excellent point. The city was attacked but whether that involved an assault isn't clear. I'll go back and try to identify the actual position of each unit in Breslau at setup. Nothing had moved in since then but it's possible that all the others were in the city rather than the fort so I'l...

Re: Locked units and MTSG

As I recall the tool-tip says that they remain locked for the specified period unless attacked, so it would follow that they can't assist neighbouring units while still locked. But there's then the issue of what constitutes an attack. I'm close to certain that I encountered an occasion when a perman...

Re: Question about munition wagons

I don't think so. It's much like building units - when you elect to build a munitions plant you're presented with a screen that permits you to nominate the province in which you'll build it.

Re: Question about munition wagons

From a little play testing I've just done it appears that munitions units will replenish at rate of around 6% per day when lodged in a supplied city with the required stored munitions. I wouldn't be surprised if this varied with city size, between cities and depots, and with province conditions.

Re: Question about munition wagons

A list of the factors affecting ammunition (and general) supply distribution can be found on p.64 of the manual but there's no mention there of how it's allocated among competing demands. It would certainly be nice to know but so far nobody's telling.

Re: Hindenburg hindered

Yep, a very gentlemanly arrangement and all that's required to avoid frustration and aggravation. Of course in order to come to that arrangement it's first necessary to know that it's required, and the fact that there's nothing in the manual to indicate this is extremely frustrating and aggravating.

Re: Hindenburg hindered

Arrow has just pointed me to a 2015 post by BBBD316 indicating that Hindenburg doesn't get the call-up if Russia doesn't invade Germany - presumably fairly early in the time line.

Much appreciated the assist and, what a surprise, hugely critical of the lack of documentation in the manual.

Hindenburg hindered

January 1915 in a one-on-one game as Germany and Hindenburg is notably absent. The Moltke replacement event fired as normal with Falkenhayn arriving on cue, but Prittwitz has stubbornly refused to surrender his command. Any ideas as to the cause?

Just following on from the last point, there's a line in the situation reports that notes that "our citizens are pleased" or something to that effect. I'm thinking that this is a marker for a critical location loyalty bonus.

Re: Rebel alignment

Rebels function much as do enemy forces with regard to loyalty. 51% or higher loyalty the player should not have any adverse consequence. Once loyalty drops below 50% the region is not as productive, moment and supply are impacted if the loyalty drops too far. Aha! Makes sense - good to know Durko....
