@rainova said in Allow user to specifically choose amphibious offloaded units in battle chooser:
The top military command withdraws units. It is the units who retreat - and may route in the process.
The TripleA player plays the top military command role. In the situation we are discussing here, routing is not an issue. IMHO we should use the the term withdraw
How do we come to a conclusion so I can unify the terminology in the program code the right way?
Though, I have to say that to withdraw makes me think that we are deciding unit per unit whether or not to withdraw it (that is what we should be able to do when we submerge submarines, although TripleA fails to support this). The concep of, nomally (full land invasion), withdrawing the entire army in the field or nothing, without having the option deliberately to withdraw only part of your units is something that I do not associate to the concept of withdrawing. Terms like "fall back" or "pull out" come to mind.
A long time wish of me was a new feature that would allow withdrawing/retreating as many units as you want (amongst those which you can withdraw), instead of being obliged to retreat all you can or nothing, and also being able to retreat once the battle is won (retreating when no defending units are left). Of course, off topic.
@Panther What I actually meant is whether there is some sort of official distinction between withdrawing and retreating, game wise.
