Roads and Railroads in the Same HEX

#1 Post by irfanahmed1979 » Jan 01 2014

1. Can we build roads and railroads from point A to point B that travel through the same hexes throughout the way? If so, will there be any disadvantages to such transportation methods?

You can build them in same hexes but to no benefit. If you build road than you have added a supply line and faster passage for wheeled units on that portion of a map. If you build rail than you have added a supply line to that portion of the map. Building and maintaining roads is more expensive than building and maintaining rails. Building both is redundant so build roads where you want to increase the movement of your troops and build rails where your only desire is to spread supply. :wink:
