    @Prof. Garfield we can post our turns here.

    My initial bombing raids don't do as much damage as I would have liked but we start a few fires in the Ruhr. Nighttime airstrikes launched in Belgium against airfields but nothing is destroyed--just damaged.

    A few bombers downed, not much else (except a lot of city management).

    Some minor attacks on radar - one destroyed, one damaged. Also, a convoy rams a U-Boat by accident. We destroyed the U-Boat but took a beating.

    Destroyed a few planes on the ground, and I think hunted down some bombers at night. Most of my effort was spent trying to figure out what to produce. The German player's situation isn't straightforward at all.

    Fighting rages - I shot down some night fighters but couldn't quite beat a 190/109 combo over clouds with my Spits. I did destroy another radar site, and a U-boat by again ramming it accidentally, which is annoying given that this means I'll be having a very slow go of things with yet another convoy due to the damage!

    Killed a few Stirlings, Stukas attacked a convoy, some Spitfires were downed, and some other stuff.

    We return to the Ruhr and do more damage. I think 2 urban areas destroyed? Something like that. The 8th AF also destroys a factory near Paris and docks at Le Havre, though it takes a ton of aircraft to accomplish both goals.

    Luftwaffe flies hither and yon attacking aircraft, but without any coordination. Tons of flak fired blindly into the night sky, with little to show for it. Urban area of Plymouth targeted, and much of it is destroyed. Convoy approaching England is attacked again, but not yet destroyed.

    It looks like the Allied convoy will meet an escort and survive. Some Stirlings killed, and I think some other stuff, too. I foolishly try to engage a couple bombers near Dover, before realizing that attrition favours the Allies.

    Freiburg is attacked and somewhat damaged. The port of Calais is heavily attacked but survives, barely. An He111 is shot down over SW England.

    Chances are this'll be the last turn I can play tonight but you never know.

    The raid on Calais is heavily punished. Berliners also discover that radar installations can't be transported by train :lol:.

    Minor attacks, but nothing finished. Freiburg was nearly hit again but couldn't finish it with what I had.

    2 counts of Arson in the Ruhr, as reintroduction of proper fire protection was delayed.

    Calais finished off. Spitfire lost attacking a large Stuka formation in SW England. Radar destroyed near Borkum.

    I'm starting to think a few last minute changes either never got made, or an obsolete save was put in for the final release.

    After a fairly easy time killing a few strategic targets, I checked, and the strategic targets were never made veteran in this save (at least a couple of mine aren't veteran).

    I also noticed that flak batteries aren't reselected after flak is fired, which I thought I fixed.

    Well, I checked the events, and units on map 0 should have a better weight when flak is activated, so I'm not sure why there is a problem. I'll have to make a more careful check.

    We attack Cherbourg port but can't destroy it through cloud cover...

    Not sure why the units aren't vets - I double checked and the events I started the scenario with are the same ones uploaded here. Is there a way to do a quickfix so you have vet industries?

    The events now include code to make units with 0 movement veteran. Updating the events will fix your other game (even if Fairline doesn't update). Patching the event is probably easier than re-releasing the starting scenario. Incidentally, there is a rogue refinery tile near Berlin, which I think is supposed to be an installation tile.

    We strike 2x industrial targets in the low countries and manage to destroy another sector of Freiburg. There is a pretty healthy air battle occurring near Plymouth as well.
