The "WItP has taken over thread" made me think about where I live and what it would be if on the WItP map. Using WWII era figures I live in:

Toledo, Ohio (Urban hex, forts 0 and lots of RR's, temperate zone - though the -15 F temp yesterday makes me question that)

AB 2(2)
Port 3(3)
Manpower 5 (just a WAG)
HI 200 (I figure it had to have been bigger than Hanoi. Lots of stuff built here including all those Willys JEEPS)
Shipyard 10 (small shipyard here with a drydock. Built USCG cutters and most notably USCGC Mackinaw)
Oil 10 (Another WAG but the Lima-Trenton field is just south of here and produced a lot in the WWII era)

Today the only change would be AB 4(4). The airport houses the 180th TFG plus a Burlington Air Hub - 12,000 ft runway. Plus there are no fewer than 3 "fighter strips" here too

edit: forgot the hex characteristics

AB 2(4) - 6,000 ft x 100 ft rwy/3,600 ft x 75 ft rwy, ILS, room for expansion
Port 0(0) -unless a canoe launch on the Fox River counts as something
Urban Hex
Railroads - too many
Daily Supply 100 - nearby shopping!
Cold Zone! - Several sub-zero days recently. I feel my morale slipping and my home is suffering from additional disruption tracking in all of the snow...

I didn't add any resources. What constitutes a resource in WItP terms? The area produces obnoxious amounts of lime which is essential to the steel industry (If you have ever driven past a lime plant you understand the term obnoxious). Two refineries here too - forgot about that. Small smount of steel production although it was higher in WWII. What about food? Huge agricultural area and was more so in WWII.

The "OC" hex (between Sand Diego and LA).

In 1941 it would be:


AB 1(6) (Eventually El Toro MCAS (2 x 10,000 ft) and Tustin MCAS (2 x 10,000 ft, 1 x 8,000 ft))

Port 2(2) Shallow draft harbor at Newport Beach

Fortifications: 2 (a few coastal guns in concrete emplacements in Huntiungton Beach)

Industry...not so much I guess, although a great deal would be right on the border with LA

Edit: Perhaps i should also tell you that Wetzlar is in Germany. 60 kms NW of Frankfurt

Which proves my statement that no direct access to an ocean is needed to play WitP.

Bruxelles, Belgium - capital of Europe.  Urban hex, temperate zone, AF 9 (1)*, Port 1 (0)**, Fort 0.
As for manpower, industry and ressources, without real reference but extrapolating from WitP's map (mostly 1941 Japan, as Australia and the US were not "closed" enough) : Manpower 100, HI 1200, Ressources 800, various industries for 1800.***



* awarded Best Airport in Europe four years ago, but in its many years of existence, the city has surrounded it, bringing houses far too close...
** or maybe 9 (6), since Antwerp (international ranking from 11th to 17th, worldwide) is less than 30 miles away.  It would depend on how hex are drawn...
*** again, counting the hex's dimensions.  One of the densest PIB/km² overall - not always fun to live in, but useful.

I live in Regensburg, Germany

urban hex, moderate climate
port (0)0, some 600km to the medeterranean sea, across the alps, and even further to the north sea
airfield 2(6) just a fighter runway and a factory runway, enough flat land to expand
manpower??? maybe 50k people back in those days
resources 20, not sure how to calculate this but it is not much, a lot of agriculture

  now it gets interesting:
heavy industry: maybe 250, VERY large aircraft assembly, Messerschmidt GmbH about half of all Bf109 were manifactured here, facrory got bombed out by LeMay himself (look up "Operation Double Strike" on wikipedia) late in the war, as the factory went out of buissnes after repeated bombings, the high tech Me262 were assenbled in very low tech huts in the forest outside of the city

Don't give credit or blame to Lemay for Regensburg.

According to the unit history of the 451st Bombardment Group (H), flying from Italy with the 15th Air Force -

"On August 16th the Group was awarded a Distinguished Unit Citation (1st of 3) for its outstanding work in the bombing and destruction of the Messerschmidt Airplane Factory in Regensburg, Germany, February 25, 1944."

The Group lost 6 B-24s that day along with many badly damaged.

On a partial OT, Phoenix, Arizona had a POW camp during WWII that had, among other inhabitants, captured sailors from the Kriegsmarine/uboat fleet. These guys were a little surprised to learn what "rivers" can be like in this part of the world (I've heard varying accounts of this escape from Papago park).

http://home.arcor.de/kriegsgefangene/usa/camps_usa/papago_park.html

It's my understanding that more than a few of these sailors drifted into town, were largely ignored by the locals, and returned to the camp when they got hungry.

Your hex is in AE.

I'm in the Portland hex, which doesn't show the merchant shipyard that was here during the war. Vancouver, WA built more aircraft carrier deckspace that all foreign navies combined. Kaiser cranked them out in record numbers.

There is essentially nothing left but pictures of the old shipyard.

There is a fort near the old shipyards, but I don't know what the fortification level is for an 18th century wooden fort. (It's a historical landmark now.)

In AE the Tacoma hex includes McChord and Fort Lewis. The port starts at 5 (6) and the af at 2 (7), 2 manpower, 680 resources, 80 light industry, and 40 repair shipyard. (Subject to change before release of course.)
