"Sub Control Sea Zone Restricted" property allows ships to move over enemy subs



  • According to the wiki, this property "Disallows subs from capturing Convoy Routes or Convoy Centers." However, when enabled ("true"), this property also allows ships to move past enemy submarines as if they are not there, making submarine blockades useless, as even an undefended transport can float right on by.

    Not sure if this is intended behavior or not, but it certainly seems wrong. In my opinion, these two behaviors (subs not engaging and subs not capturing convoy sea zones) should be governed by separate properties.

    @elreigh So here is the best overview we have of sub properties: https://forums.triplea-game.org/topic/355/sub-xml-properties

    I believe "Ignore Sub In Movement" property should control whether subs can be moved through.



  • @redrum I had "Ignore Sub In Movement" set to "true" and yet ships wouldn't ignore subs unless "Sub Control Sea Zone Restricted" was also set to "true."

    Then I tested it again and got the opposite result. Maybe it was a glitch on my end, I don't know, but it's all working as intended now.

    Thanks for your help.
