Focus Pacific Patch 1.03
Patch can be downloaded HERE. Please see first post for patch installation instructions.
Japanese resource production has been greatly increased, primarily in Manchuko, Hokkaido and Korea. The Japanese player also starts with a significantly higher Heavy Industry pool than in stock, allowing for more flexibility in early expansion.
Light Industry on the Home Islands has been reduced slightly, freeing up those resources for more efficient use in Heavy Industry.
Thanks to Peever, Lokasenna and others for their help with their insight into Japanese industry.
Japanese Starting Political Points
Japan begins the game with much higher political point values, allowing them greater flexibility in buying out units on the Home Islands for use in additional invasions.
Air Model Changes
Some air-frames now have lower service ceilings, including the Oscar and the P-50.
Soviet Armor Production
Soviet armor production has been extended so key vehicles do not stop production in March of 1942, but those vehicles have also had their per-month production reduced:
BT-7 - Reduced to 55 to 70 per month, removed end date
T-26S - Reduced to 60 from 80, removed end date
T-38 Tankette - Reduced to 12 from 16, removed end date.
Several Soviet heavy tanks were also present as devices, but with no production. That has now been fixed, and some Soviet heavy tank models now receive replacements - but in very small numbers.
Thanks to HansBolter for noticing the end-date on the tank production.
Missing atopalpha files have been added, thanks to the generous work of Cardas. Planes like the MS.410 should now appear in game. Some French ship transparencies have also been improved, but may still need some work.
Missing credits image has been returned to the game.
Many planes had incorrect settings for the position of their bombs and droptanks in their extended range device data. These have been fixed. Thanks to blueskywhitesun and others for the catch.
Guam Base Prep
Units on Guam were preparing for other bases. They now prepare for Guam as intended. Thanks again to Bluesky.
French Destroyer Upgrade Issue
Desaix-Class destroyers lost maneuverability with their upgrade. This has been fixed. Thanks to BillBrown.
Nagasaki/Sasebo Port Build Size
The port build size field was set to zero instead of 6, this has been fixed and the port has been to restored to a size 6 build size.
Thanks to Peever for the catch.
US Bomber Squadron Fielding Incorrect Planes
A single U.S. B-25 squadron inexplicably was flying Dutch B-25s. The squadron now flies their intended B-25Cs. Thanks to Patton for the Catch.
Thank you to all who helped contribute bug fixes and suggestions. Special thanks to Cardas for his work on the air art, as well as Lokasenna and Peever for their help with the Japanese economy.
