Okay, in best wargaming tradition now that the box is open it's time to layout the map, punch the conters and see what happens. I might even read the rule book.

I'll try to post lots of screenies as things happen. Look upon this as a learning experience for us all. If you see me do something stupid please let me know. Hopefully Turn 1 will be ready soon...

Did an historical first turn, just to get the ball rolling. One thing I did notice was that the save file sizes are a lot bigger in AE than WiTP, starting at 2.1Mb as opposed to WiTP's 1.2 or so.

Just finished running turn1.

I've seen Kate's torpedoes hit with no explosion
Zeroes abort due to engine failure
Nates shoot down Buffaloes and
Buffaloes abort due to control failure
Prince of Wales reported as a Tennessee class BB by a plane attacking her
Planes attacking from port and ahead
Air to air combat after bombing runs
But I never seen an elephant fly

Okay, in best wargaming tradition now that the box is open it's time to layout the map, punch the conters and see what happens. I might even read the rule book.

I'll try to post lots of screenies as things happen. Look upon this as a learning experience for us all. If you see me do something stupid please let me know. Hopefully Turn 1 will be ready soon...


What are you? A girl? Bloody navy

In WiTP when you couldn't add up your TF would just sit there "Loading Troops" until you realised basic maths was beyond your grasp. At leadt WiTP let you work it out for yourself. But not AE oh, it tells you you're dumb, right up front.

I like this. When you form a new TF you're only presented those items you can actually form in that port.

As the Japanese you're going to have to get a grip on your shipping. Those now rare ducks, the APs are scattered hither, thither and yon. Who though, "Hmm, invade amphibiously but leave the ships that are actually good at it scattered over the Pacific."? No wonder they lost.

Okay, 2 things to note here. First the world's most useless aircraft factory building 0 planes. Secondly (and another nice thing) those factories doing research actually tell you when they will come on line!

And this is what Malaya looks like:


Note that ther road west from Kuantan has been downgraded. Now it makes it tougher to land there and race acrss the peninsula before the CW troops can Sir Robin.

Another interesting feature, now all the reports, ever, are kept. However they will be over written by another game using the same dates.

Alright, turn 3. The transport TF at Aparri gets creamed by various USN and RN types. They know you are coming. Either land somewhere else or send in a CAG first. My transport TF was followed by a CAG but it didn't seem to make any difference. I forgot to take screenies. Sorry.

Beyond that seems we have a lot of klutzes in the IJN:

7.7mm T99 AAMG damaged beyond repair during unload of 40th JAAF AF Bn
Sound Detector (J) lost overboard during unload of 40th JAAF AF Bn

Ooh, ooh, nearly forgot. I watched a ship sink during a surface action. That was nice to see. Except the smoke and flames hung around which was a little bizarre.

The great diaspora of shipping from Manilla has started. Miss Betty caught a few and sent them to sleep with the fishes.

I thought about then but then realised:

a. it's a lot of manual intervention and
b. I don't care that much.

I'm quite sure Andy Mac is aware of this problem and will make changes in the AI script. I just did turn 3 as Allies vs AI using 2 day turns. I lost 5 of 7 DDs (3 British from Hong Kong plus 4 Americans from Manila), but the Aparri transports got roughed up badly.

Possible solution - I think you will need the transports "follow" the CAG. I think one of the main developers wrote that the CAG will go slow enough for the transports to keep up. Another point was to have your BB TF or SC TF be a lower TF number than your transport TF.

Thus, in future invasions form your TF in this order - SC TF, BB TF, MSW TF, ASW TF, and finally your Amphib TF. Any enemy SC TF would have to go through all of these to get to your transports, I think.

Correct. I posted in the naval thread that the historical setup orders were backwards for AE. You want the SAG going in first. Makes a *huge* difference.

I thought the number dependence was gone, though?
