Transport and Strategic Movement Question

Mon Sep 30, 2019 11:21 am

Hi everyone,

I have a couple questions for the forum.

1) I've read in other parts of the forum that Transports in the Shipping Lane boxes generate WS and money.

viewtopic.php?f=331&t=52585&p=398968&hilit=industry#p398963

I have 5 transports in the Shipping Lane box and the System Various Messages says my transports are shipping 1,708 supply points oversea with their maximum being 3,860 points. Do supply points equate to WS and/or $? Or am I mistaken that transports generate WS and $?

2) I've also read that there is away to "strategically move"units more rapidly from the West Coast to the East Coast. I'm not sure if that is possible. I have a couple of Ranger units that I want to move from Oregon to Baltimore. When I drag their card to Baltimore and use river and rail transport, it takes about 105 days. Is there a faster way of moving them?

Thanks in advance!

1. Look in the log messages. (Specifically the one on the far right that looks a bit like a key.) It will tell you the exact amount of money and WS is being gained. The number you are seeing is the amount of GS and ammo being transfered via ocean shipping during the supply phase.

2. The stratigic redeploy function applys only to non-combat support units ( leaders, supply wagons, hospital units etc.) I think it also requires a rail path and can cause a loss in rail capacity. My suggestion for bringing units from the West coast to the East is by sending ocean transports to pick them up.

Thanks for the feedback. I looked at the "key" messages, and it says the same thing -my merchant shipping is generating WS and $ but the message associated with the transports talks about GS. I see that supply number is increasing turn over turn as I add transports but I can't see where those transports are generating WS or $. I think I'm missing something here.
