Defense radius = 5KM. Level 1 interceptorpatrol radius = 250 miles. How do I judge these distances on a map before I decide whether to build or place units?
Clicking on an intended target to see if you can reach it, is what prompted my question. That seems to be the only thing that works. What if you are deciding whether to build a network of airfields within movement distance from other airfields? Do you have to fly a plane to each field as it's built to detrmine where the next one can be located? Klunky!
That is one step toward a solution, I agree. Now I just have to have a plane within raius of an existing airfield in order to find out the distance to the next airfield. Still klunky!
I tried what you said. The range circle remained at the site of the plane, not where I put the cursor. So then, I tried clicking on the "new" site( where I had placed rthe cursor), and my plane tried to start moving there! I immediately stopped it from becoming a convoy, so no harm done, but no distance measurement, either.
