    4 B17F and 4 B17G damaged. 2 Beaufighters, 1 Damaged B17F, 1 Damaged b17G downed.

    Event Changes:
    Barrage Balloons that are 'popped' no longer kill the entire stack. If the Barrage Balloon is properly defeated, the stack kill still happens, but that should be rare.

    Airbases can only be built on grassland that is not adjacent to a switchyard. If you want airbases to be built on other tiles, let me know and I'll make the change. A warning message is displayed if someone tries to build the airbase in a forbidden location, warning them their airbase will be deleted if they proceed.

    The second airbase that appears on the alternate map is now automatically named (an airbase on the night map will have (N) added to the name, and if the airbase was built with a crew on the night map, the name will be the same, except the (N) will be removed if it exists.

    A bug where the a trainlift could still take place from a city without a railyard has now been fixed.

    The 1 key now lets you know if any of your cities are missing the firefighters improvement. You won't be warned if a city has no improvements vulnerable to fire, since the firefighters aren't actually necessary in that case.

    Downed 3 Beaufighters, a P38, a Stirling, a Halifax, 6 15th AF Bombers. Damaged 2 B17f, 2 B17G, downed 2 damaged B17G.

    I knew you had P38s, since I scouted some in an airfield once, but I didn't put 2 and 2 together to realize that you now had increased fighter range.

    I note that I occasionally fire light flak at planes (when I do, it is usually on the night map). We've made heavy flak passive, should we consider doing the same with light flak? In practice, light flak is mostly a 'shield' for aircraft anyway.

    4x Me109G6, 2x Fw190A5, 1x Me110, 3x Ju88C, and Josef Priller fall to Allied fighters. Bremen comes under very heavy attack, but can't be finished off.

    Only if you come to find that it makes the game less enjoyable for you because you feel compelled to "use it or lose it" and it's taking too much time. I don't mind if you get to attack with it given flying low should be more dangerous.

    9 Beaufighters, 9 P38s, 1 Halifax downed.

    I just realized that stacking planes (outside airbases) with barrage balloons would probably be a decent strategy (I haven't deliberately employed it, and I didn't notice any low altitude fighter/balloon stacks), and we should probably disallow that, somehow. I could try disabling the reaction if there is an air stack, and the barrage balloon isn't in a city.

    I don't mind firing the light flak. It doesn't happen very often, and the attack does decent damage when it hits. The heavy flak attacks were a bit awkward due to the multiple maps, and they didn't do much damage individually.

    I noticed that an RAF Ace was able to react against my photo-recon. Is that deliberate?

    1x Me109G6, 3x Fw190A5, 1x Ju88C, 2x Industry, 4x Refinery, 2x Urban Centers destroyed.

    Bear in mind, as I build up my P-38 forces, the historic tactic of the Germans was to largely ignore the bomber streams until their escorts turned around. At this stage in the game, everything from about Cologne West can have fighter cover (the further east you go, the less effective the cover as they get in less shots) and, for another 8 or 10 turns at least, my escorts are pretty easy to kill. But, stacking up fighters over the coast of Holland is going to mean you're trading me 1 and sometimes 2 for 1.

    -No - we probably should let the recons be as stealthy as possible.

    3 Beaufighter, 2 P38, 3 Stirling, 2 Halifax downed. 10 B17F damaged, 2 destroyed.

    Fixed barrage balloons so they won't react when stacked with air units outside of a city. Now that I think about it, I guess that they still can still take a hit to protect aircraft; perhaps I should address that also.

    Removed the photo recon planes from the 'allAir' reaction group, since that group is used quite a bit (mostly or entirely for dive reactions).

    @JPetroski I don't think you posted the correct saved game. An awful lot of units cycled through when I pressed ctrl+n.

    You know what? This is the second time it has happened. You just play, and I'll deal with the consequences. I can't get to it for a few hours and don't want to delay the game on something that should have been a one off and is my own responsibility/failure.

    I don't mind waiting. This stuff happens, we're not on a deadline, and it's not like we're playing for money or anything.

    I forgot to check what I killed but it wasn't much - I think 1x 109 and 1x U-Boat.
