Apparently whenever a ferry-ship of some sort is in a city, sentried units
(as many as possible) are put on the boat and non-sentried units are put in
the city. I'm not sure if there's any way to turn this off, but for a
workaround what I do is to fortify units I want to stay in the city and
sentry units I want on a boat.
I just upgraded to the latest 1.11.0 release. It compiled and
installed without any problems. However when I play I've noticed that
transports (or earlier ships) have the following annoying features:
1. They automatically load units from ports they happen to be in.
2. If on the way to some destination, they go through a coastal city,
they will unload the units they're carrying. This inevitably costs a
turn (at least) while you go back for them.
I can think of situations where these two features would be desirable,
but for the most part I don't think they are. Can they be turned off?
To complicate things, I think units on a ship are autosentried after a turn
onboard, but if the ship goes through a city in the same turn as a unit is
moved onto it (as opposed to picking it up already-sentried from a city)
it'll probably be unloaded.
Hope this helps somehow.
