How to get AI to put units in reserve?

#1 Post by tandur » Jul 01 2019

So, I am a new player, been watching videos, reading forum posts, reading the manual, etc. to try and better understand the game. I've played a few games, usually smaller nations, to understand various mechanics, but I'm coming across one issue I can not resolve.

My issue is, how do I get my Minister of Defense to place all of my active units back into reserve. I know how to manually order the units into reserve. This came about because I was experimenting with letting the AI fully control my military, and figured out how to get the AI to pull units out of reserve using initiative controls in the MoD panel. I understand that if initiative is set to None, they AI will do nothing. I've tried setting the MoD's priority to reduce unit readiness, but, tbh, this seems to do nothing.

For example, I'm playing as Spain. At the start, no units are deployed. I set my Naval initiative to Full, and after 30 minutes on full speed and afking, 13 ships are deployed and 32 are not. (Why not all of them, I have no idea). I then put on Decrease Unit Readiness, and nothing happens for 30 minutes on full speed and afking. I have ships in the Northern Europe theater, even though I set Military Priority to "None" in that theater. (Again, why? No clue). This begs the questions about Battle Zones/Theaters. Do I have to set every battlezone and theater in the entire world to None to prevent my units from randomly wandering into those areas? Does that actually do anything?

So far, I'm very impressed with the game and I'm certainly looking towards better understanding the game. I
