I created a Large Supply Unit. But... since a small supply unit was on the only offensive base I could put the larger unit on I just couldn't do it. This looks like a really good game. I'm on the "war" server and I know I will be splattered. That's okay.

I would still like to put the Large Supply Unit there. No way. I had to dismantle the small unit and somehow, after that, the large supply unit appeared.

I don't mind a complicated war game. I played Hearts of Iron 2. What I tremendously don't like, after 5 hours of trying and searching, is a most unintuitive way of placing, and even finding my units.

I am, at present, grinding my teeth. I don't mind being wiped out, but I mind very much not being able to put a simple supply unit in it's proper place. Even after dismanteling the smaller supply unit I can't move the larger supply unit.

I must be doing something wrong since nothing can be so hard to do.

My question? I don't even have a question now.

Why isn't there a "put this unit here" button? Why isn't there a " not enough resources? by all means click here and we will try to get you what you need" button?

I understand the complexity of the game. What I cannot understand is why this game is so unintuitive.

Don't bother answering. I'll just go to a peaceful server and spend five years trying to figure out how to find what I have already. No disrespect intended. None whatsoever. But does it have to be so uninuitive? Whatever. Nice game if I can ever figure it out, and I'm a Gary Grigsby fan, so don't even think of berating my understanding of how to operate war games. I know, I know, it's been five hours and I'm steaming mad. Sorry.

Oh, and yes, yes. I know it's me and I've overlooked something; and kudos to the good people who made this game. I know it's just me, and please pardon the misspelled words, etc., in my post above. This is a good game and I will be ruler, perhaps not all of twevle inches, of all worlds. Thank you all for putting up with my insane rant.

1.) Calm Down
2.) Set up the unit and use the link that says 'Select from a list'
3.) Press the name and then exit the popup and press Next

That should help if this is what you are having troubles with. I'm not sure. There was a lot of rambling....


PS. The Help forum generally gets a quicker response than some of the planet forums. They're mostly dead.

That did help as I've found out. Thanks.

There should be a button that marks a unit for priority resupply. My resupply unit is moving to a fortification that is not under any danger while a division is lacking in gasoline (I have plenty in stock) and can't move and it needs to go where I asked it to go quickly. It's been sitting there for a game month.

Thank you and I appreciate and thank you for your help.

I have had a constant issue when I create a unit and want to place it in a forward offense base or airport it will go active but not be in that location. The other issue it has is it does not register my offensive airport in another country? That is the main question after I have an offensive base in another country why can i not place units there/
