This might have been explained already, and I might have missed it. I'm curious about the mechanics of the game. How much control does the player have over his forces? Those dogfights are terrific to watch, but obviously we have no control. Do we simply tell the Wildcats where to go? What target we want them to attack? So we'd give them an order such as, "Ignore the Zero's and attack the torpedo bombers." Something like that? Or say we have six of them. We highlight three and order, "Attack Zero's," then highlight the other three. "Attack dive bombers."
Same with our fleet. We send our ships into a section of ocean and order, "Patrol here." I realize that, as in the real world, once the fight starts it's out of our hands. As the old saying goes, "The first casualty of any battle, is the plan."

Hello there Pooch!

Sorry, missed that one!
Well, some of the contents in our new update might answer your question. You will have the possibility to assign doctrine to the planes before they take off - this includes possibly ignoring a category of targets for instance - but some other parts of the doctrine are also pre-set in the scenario. Even when ordered not to, Japanese fighter planes were notoriously undisciplined when it comes to target selection, which had great consequences for the Hiryu dive bomber strike at Midway for instance. You would expect pilots to behave in a believable way. In a certain way, what you see in the Thach Weave video is the sort of result we are aiming for in other cases too.

Orders you can give are specific enough to be the sort of things you'd be doing as a flag officer, but it isn't micro management heavy either. These guys aren't robots, and never did act like it. You don't get to give orders on the fly though, and for any ship or plane out there, giving new orders (for instance assigning a new target or updating the position of the enemy) will incur radio traffic that will carry a risk of counter detection.

Anyway!

Our latest dev update containing the progress of the last few months is online. Feel free to come and have a look. There's a lot to digest in there, so take your time, there's no hurry 8)
This way for those who might feel bored on a late week shift :hug:

Nurse Crandall says that you'd have to get hurt first, before she ever gets the chance to hurt your feelings, Chef!
But she also said that in the meantime that these few screenshots could still somewhat help with your libido, who knows ^^

Hi there boys smile
Thanks for your kindness, as always.

Here's the weekly entry!


Quote
This TBD is proceeding forward while the player surveys the scene from the island’s air station (still to be made properly, of course). In other news, carriers are now learning to operate together & transfer planes to each other. All of this is, as always, very much work in progress, so don’t fret! It can only get better from now.
