Sounds like one of those JFB wet dream scenarios.


Not really. The Japanese *do* get significant forward-deployed supplies and fuel. That helps a lot for the early war pace. They also get sizeable home islands resource, oil and fuel reserves above scenario 1-this helps keep their war economy viable longer into the war. There's more early model aircraft in the pools than scenario 1 (e.g., more Oscar Ic, A6M2 at war start). The Japanese also get a few ships-mostly escort vessels, a few extra DDs and 4-5 Guards extra divisions in 1943. This helps.

I'd estimate that scenario 2 (versus 1) adds another 6-8 months (+/-) to the competitive nature of the Japanese in the war and pushes the envelope on Japanese autovictory potential.

Wet dream? Hardly. For that you need to try out the "Reluctant Admiral" and other OOB major re-works with lots and lots and lots of extra, fictitious ships and lots and lots of extra, fictitious capabilities for these fictitious ships.


So the Brits are saying they need to cheat to beat us?

No.

The Brits are saying that they'd like the opportunity to cheat if only you'd let 'em.

Some Indian kids are playing Cricket outside.

That is unusual. How do they get the buffalo, bow and arrow and pottery involved in the game?

I watched some Brits play cricket in the Sandbox once, looked like a cool game. But I haven't got a clue how they score it, was a deep mystery to me at the time.

The bigger question is, where'd they get the funny looking bat.

Commodore 64 until Atari ST in 1986 with 1 MB or RAM


I sold my Atari ST and got an Amiga so I could play Harpoon.

I remember Red Lightning too, loved that game. Also Elite on the Speccy and Dr Turcans 3d wargames as well as CCS wargames (desert rats, Vulcan, Arnhem)


Amazingly Elite is still around.....

Check out this link for Oolite which is a downloadable (and extensively modded) GNU GPL version of the game.
Elite Wiki

Apparently it is as addictive as ever!!


Interesting - thanks for link!
