Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition (factories)

Tue Feb 19, 2019 2:25 pm

Is there some kind of threshold date governing the building of these? It's December 1914 and I'm trying to interest Messrs Krupp et al in building some but they steadfastly refuse. I have the money, the war supplies, and the engagement points but I keep being told that I can't pay for them. Should I bow more deeply?

Just like Martians the threshold does exist - 1915 rolls around and up they go. Unlike Martians, nobody bothered to tell us about it. Just plain shoddy.

The only reading I could do was the manual and there's no mention of a threshold date there. I discovered the Jan. 1915 date by testing.

I'm certain that I have been able to start building munitions factories already in 1914. Seems like just one more bug.

Exactly, perhaps something is corrupted in Epa's installation?

It is possible in the very first turn of the historical campaign

Well that would certainly explain some of the issues I've been turning up - and it would mean that I owe the publishers an apology. I'll purge my installation, reinstall and post the result.

You're right Nik, I've got a screwy installation. I just started a new game as a test and I was able to build a factory on the first August turn of 1914. That explains a lot and actually makes me feel a whole let better about some other strange things that have been happening.

Two things I have to do. First apologize to the publishers for criticising them harshly and wholly undeservedly - I am indeed very sorry for that. Second, reinstall.

Well, I think your main critic was regarding the lack of documentation, not bugs.

You are still right.
