    What has struck me:

    The sharing of technologies with other allies, is possible only with a single technology. It has no way of connecting with other technologies to share that ally.

    Please report it in the hoi3 bug forum. This has nothing to do with DI:G I presume.

    Snorkle problem. I have Antwerp and got the event saying I found the snorkle info, but I can't research snorkles in the U-Boat tech area because it says I have not found the snorkle info. This is in SF w/DIG 1.0.2.

  5. #1745
    Flipping through the tech screens and saw that you have schnorkle INCREASING sub detection by air... was this some sort of balance decision?

    Particularly vs radar bearing aircraft, the snork was a boon, and the snorkle head was far less visually imposing than the entire sub...

    Currently the Indian Legion-event creates a full infantry corps of three divisions, but at least according to George H. Stein's book about the SS there were never more than about 2000 Indians in service.

    Yeah I think the Indian Legion in Germany may have been confused with the INA Army, which worked with the Japanese: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Indian_National_Army

    Look at diplomatic view after conquering the Chzech-slovakia. Core of three regions did not change.
    At attacking Yugoslavia italia conquers the most but big pieces are becoming German. There is no dividing of land between the surrounding countries. Am I doing something wrong or is t an error?

    EDIT : subs are all destroyed and its just 1940 : the so called happy time (not!)

    EDIT 2: After getting vichy france/south france. the rest of france is being conquered by italy (at least the try) but there are USA units over there doing nothing because of not being at war yet (mar/apr 41) but wtf are they doing over there???!!

    Question Feedback on SF DI:G 1.03 game - continued

    I am turning from Nazi to Fascist and I have no idea why? When I look in my political screen, the Fascists have organisation and popularity around 60, NSDAP around 29 and the remaing parties can hardly be seen at all.

    When I move my mouse cursor over the Fascist column, it says that there is a substantial effect from spying affecting the popularity and organisation of the fascists in Germany - but when I go to the Espionage screen, only Romania is active doing "Counterespionage". No other Axis powers are using e.g. "Support Our Party" which I first suspected to be the reason.

    Why am I turning Fascist??

    All,

    Playing SF/DIG…(I have FtM but holding off to ensure the DIG patch is stable, can’t see the sense in playing it without DIG and also I want to finish this game…but maybe it is finished)

    I went through Poland like corn through a goose, bagged Denmark at the same time and did rather well throughout the Benelux countries but got severely bogged down in France. It's 1 April and I'm racing all my Mobile forces back to the East to start invasion of SU...


    Question:

    1. I took all; I mean ALL of France except Paris (40 Garrison regiments + supporting units in defense) and some province with a few divisions hold up in the mountains with a fort near Italian border. Vichy event did not fire until I took Paris.

    Will a country capitulate if I take all the VP provinces – meaning – I don’t have to take every province? Or, how many VPs do I have to take? Normally, I take every province but in some cases when the clock is ticking and blew my timeline this could be handy to finish off a country.

    2. Also, my TAC aircraft are getting slaughtered. I have to watch them carefully or lose them. I send them in groups of three (3) and all Tech is up to date but…

    Anyone find any clues to giving the TAC a better chance? I am going to send a Fighter unit (actually an INT) with them and watch the results. Will this help?

    3. Upon conquering France, I occupy the coastal airfields and actually try to stop the RAF over the Channel but covering the Channel with INT set for ‘Air Superiority’. On land, I then set some INT for “Air Intercept’ on areas that it appears the AI has focused on, sort of an ‘in-depth’ doctrine.

    I would be interested to know any other ideas, any other strategy to keep the RAF at bay that was found to be effective. The only other one I know is to place INT directly over their airfield in 'Air Superior' mode but that takes a lot of aircraft and the Strategic Bombers still get through as my INT can't cover the deep airfields. Is the answer to build, build, BUILD Fighters/Interceptors?

    4. Is it too late to beat SU? I doubt I can get my forces back to the East, upgraded and in place until at least 1 June even then I won't have them all upgraded...and I know DD has made Barbarossa much harder.

    I'm testing the alpha for FTM but I have encountered these issues as well.
    I take Denmark with Poland at the same as well and then skip the BENELUX event so I can take France before the end of Fall 39'.
    1. I had that happen one game as well, I used the old trick of just leaving them a corridor to escape then eliminate them all. You need Paris for Vichy event and I prefer elimination so I can make a grab for the British Isles and Norway in May/June 40'
    2. I send Int's and it does seem to help.
    3. The RAF always targets German homeland for str bombing, I find radar stations in the nw corner of Germany with a couple squadrons of int's shuts this down. I usually try to invade the UK if I have enough transports and airpower to cover a quick landing. If you can pull this off it GREATLY helps 4.
    4. All I can say to this is i came to appreciate air transports!!!! never bothered too much with them but if you don't want to grind to a halt and get pushed back in the winter you need them for supply.

    1. The time a country will surrender depends on thier national unity. So if a country only has 10% national unity, you only need to take 10% of thier VP's. Since Paris his a very high VP value, and is needed for the vichy event. You should make it a priority in your plans. Also check the diplomacy tab to see the surrender progress.

    2. Are they slaughtered in air to air combat or when the do a ground attack? If air to air, send in the fighters first to clear out enemy fighters. If its from ground attack, try to avoid high AA provinces and units with AA. Also using them along the maginot is not very effective since they are well protected.

    3. I usually do the air intercept missions over france and germany. I keep an eye on any strategic bombing they do and send my fighters to intercept missions in those areas. They stop sending bombers when I shoot them up, they take time to repair, then we repeat. Well, till I invade them. I find if you set the ‘Air Superiority’ mission over the channel, you will pull out thier fighters and cag's and wear down your own fighter force. Leaving few forces to shoot down bombers.

    4. June 1st 1940? 41? 42? Not sure which year it is and it has a slight affect on invasion plans.

    I'm sure others have good if not better advice.

    Hi Rick

    1. As has been said, you need a percentage of captured Victory Points (VPs) that is higher than France's National Unity. I suspect that in DI:G the VP for Paris was lowered. When you take into account that almost 1/3 of all French VPs are in provinces overseas in Syria, Lebanon, Africa, Asia and South America, you will most likely need to capture almost all of mainland France to force a surrender (France is usually at around 60% NU). I find that if you can isolate a lot of the French army in a pocket in the east against the Maginot and Switzerland, then the coastal VPs all the way to Spain can be taken by a few blitzing units.

    2. Which stance are you using? Passive, Defensive or Aggressive? There is a huge difference between these, something like 90%, 50% and 5% (the level of str they will have remaning when they automatically pause a continous order and rest up before going at it again). Having them on Passive means that they will rest up once in a while. I usually use defensive because it prevents destruction but does not leave me without airpower at a critical moment in the fighting.

    3. If you try to use Air Superiority over the Channel or even the coastal areas of France, you will most likely trigger the Air Intercept missions that the RAF uses a long way into France (remember, they have a HUGE radar and can see you all the way to Berlin ). What this means is that as soon as you go up to intercept a bomber (or just fly around) swarms of their interceptors will come and kick your a**. I have found that since the RAF only strategic bombs a few cities over and over again in Semper Fi (Dortmund, Leipzig, Strasbourg, Mentz and Coesfeld), I just station a wing of 3 interceptors at Frankfurt and deploy them on Air Intercept in a roughly cone-shaped area covering all the relevant cities. My level 5 radar in Wilhelmshafen spots incoming bombers and they rarely get more than 1 hour over their target city before my interceptors are on them. The RAF does not use escort fighters, so I usually make them regret it

    Air superiority uses up a lot of fuel. Better to keep your interceptors on the ground and only send them up when something is spotted on radar. I sometimes put another wing in Bruxelles. That way I can sometimes intercept the RAF enroute to target or on the way back as well as over the target. That really hurts them.

    4. I wouldn't know because I don't which year you are in. If it is the summer of 1940 I would wait, upgrade my units to the 1940 techs and go at them in April/May 1941...

    DD,

    I did not have the MR-Pack change fire in my last games of DIG so I checked out the event file to see if it was corrupted. There is no line returns. The whole file is one lone line. I don't know modeling well and want to check to see if this is correct or not. All the rest have line returns after each command so based on that I am thinking my file is corrupted or something.
