Off for Thanksgiving Break, so buckled down to tweak my Japanese economic planning using your guide as a reference.
The entire guide - draft or not - is very helpful. Here are a few areas that were of particular use to me:
> R&D - after weeks of forum study, your guide and remarks finished the job. For example, while I knew that the next airframe in line (A6M2 > A6M3) could be accelerated, I did not grasp the concept that the A6M3 could be changed to the A6M3a (carrier capable) and thus be skipped entirely. Yes, very basic (but important!) stuff, your chart gave a clear visual of how to do it.
Hi Mac -
Remember though because you are playing Babes Lite(iirc), there might be different upgrades according to the mod designer compared to this work up for Scen1. Best checked before proceeding.
> Resource Convoys: Again, after time spent studying the forums, your explanation of Port Load and Ship Load Capacity (plus all the other listed factors) brought the whole procedure into focus - I now have an solid basis upon which to make an informed choice as to which hulls best match each port.
> What is the formula to determine "Ship Cargo Size (and Cargo / Fuel efficiency"? Yes, I am somewhat "math challenged" <sigh>.
Cargo size is determined by the editor - so no formula (except those converted to -t)
Eff = Speed * cargo * endurance / fuel
(Although I may change this to hexes.)
All of what you have written has helped - immensely. Please stick with it - your audience awaits!!
A Math Wannabe, Mac
I will continue to refine and add to, but not sure what else needs to be fleshed out as a start doc.
Oh & I'm not great at Math either.
Have a good weekend
