Ok, thoughts on increasing Java's HI. Java starts with 225 oil, 260 resources, 200 refineries, 60 HI and 180 LI. There's a deficit of 1300 resources a day. I didn't expect that, but the 180 LI does a number on the resources. Fortunately, there are a lot of resource producing bases nearby. I will ship resources from the following:
Base (resource centers)
Christmas Is IO (10)
This will allow me to increase the HI in Java by 50 to 110 leaving the following excess for use elsewhere:
Supply - 15,000
Fuel - 47,400
Oil - 7500
Resources - 0
The supply will be used in Java as well as the surrounding small bases. Not sure about the fuel, but the oil will make the long trek to Japan.
Mike, I don't know if it will make a difference to your plans or desires on Java, but with the beta patches you can now turn off the light industry. Depending on what you want to do on Java, it could save a lot of resources for use in the HI, as long as you were ok on supplies.
