That's a place that we all know so well,
for 'tis there that we wasted our manhood,
And most of our old age as well.

the Exe file of the 1.0a works fine with the redeployment but this works fine with the Armies event. Hope next patch solves both things.
Sorry for the inconvenience.

It's not a major issue, though for the republicans it can mean a slower start (ge nerals taking 2-3 weeks to reach their units as they have to cross non controlled rail regions)...

Note, the ai doesn't seem to be able to use the air RGD's correctly. In my current game as the republic I've seen nationalist planes bomb regions where I at no point in the turn had troops. The only ai air missions I've seen so far that made sense were night attacks. I wonder, could enemy unit present be made an additional prerequisite for the choice of regions that can be targetted? That is bombing (not night or strategic) missions only into regions with enemy units...

So far the ai is wasting resources and the human player might as well save the money and EP cost of his air defense missions for other purpouses...

It seems to be that air defense missions only serve a purpose right before an attack since they only reduce cohesion right? So, unless the AI only bombs a province it will attack right that turn it doesn't matter anyway does it?

Other uses would be to slow down an enemy force (low cohesion units will move slower), also defensivly if you think an enemy force might attack you this turn. It could also be useful to delay cohesion recovery in a force you recently fought (there is a limit to how much cohesion an element can recover even under ideal conditions)...

I've never dug into how the ai works, so I can't make any sugestions concerning that area. Limiting bombing to regions with enemy units on the other hand is logical (a human player would never bomb an empty region, except by mistake) and would at least slightly improve ai behaviour...

P.S.: I now saw one succesfull ai bombardment mission, but it targetted a single brigade of mine when much jucier targets would have been available...

Bombing an empty area is to deter a movement here, that's suppressing fire: If ennemy chose to go here (or is hidden here), he may be hit.
That's an usual tactic, but IA may not be teached with.

Oh, so that works? I was under the impression that bombing is only applied right at the start of turn resolution ie before the first day.

I can't play the game right now, but I recall playing both sides specifically to try out bombings and when I bombed a large Republican army all units were simply full cohesion again at the start of the new turn. Maybe it is dependant on the size of the army? (Or maybe I just recall it wrongly)

I don't know. In this one week scale, artillery should be better for this; and it's dangerous for bombers if the area is badly scouted with hidden AA guns (88!).

I think so to. It seems to me it's a one time reduction of cohesion for 1 or 5 units (or is it elements?) depending on type of bomber...

Did the army in your test stay in position? What stance was it in? Essentially bombing a non moving stack in defensive or neutral stance with no subsequent land combat would probably be of little use. On the other hand if the army in question is moving it will be moving slower than planned and recover less of the lost cohesion. An army in offensive stance(s) on the ove would probably have the greatest loss.

I'm a bit tempted to do some testing of cohesion recovery under different situations. But I really haven't done that kind of thing for a game for almost ten years, and I know once I start crunching numbers I will stop playing...

Are factories supposed to be siegable structures? In my last game (as nationalists) I had to besiege the Trubia Factory (Mieres region), an attempted assault showed a relatively large republican force inside. On the map there is no sign of a besieged force (no way to tell what's inside the structure, could be a single regiment, but also several corps), only the siege (breach) icon. I'm sure I noticed that in a previous game too, but at the time I didn't try an assault.

By the way, how many factories are in the game? I am certain of three in the north (Mieres, Reinosa, Durango) but think I've seen one in the south too, though I can't find any WS production outside cities there in my last game...

Maybe factory graphics could be made a bit more prominent...

A.I definitely needs improving: playing as the Republic, I took a very lightly defended Burgos by November 1936.

How about the factory being siegable (an ai force can enter it, but have found no way to make a player force enter it, or to select the ai unit when switching sides unless I search in the F1 screen)? This looks like a bug to me...

P.S.: Siege in Mieres...

I will check that Caranorn. It is a structure, so you should can enter it.
