Thanks for the compliments! When we were still we, we did our best to achieve that.
I don’t want to go too much off topic. But a short intro back to the topic is allowed I assume.
For the future I will work with the original designer of the first Global War map who offered it for free back in the days. We will make sure that our version updates will be available for free as well. You would then only have to print the map or change it if you wish customizations. And the rules would be written, without commercial interest. These would also be for free. Deathhead’s legacy carries on! That is an allegiance statement.
And this French units house rule solution for Allied units in surrendering friendly vessels will be in it too. 😃
So to stay on topic, I don’t have an official answer for the question, only a house rule solution. Good question! The situation did not occur to us during development. Indeed HBG should clarify.
