hi,

ive only played 1 pbem of witp so im a relative noob but recently started playing witpae again which got me in the mood to get another mp game on the go.

scenario 8 is the one i have in mind. dont know much about the modding scene here so am open to suggestions with regards to those.

i got these house rules from another thread.

1. TURN 1
No allied CV hunting on turn 1.
Japanese player knows where they are, too easy to find and sink.

2. 4 ENGINE BOMBERS
No 4 E naval bombing below 10,000ft
Too Effective / Not Historical ?

3. POLITICAL POINTS
Permanently Restricted Units must not cross national Borders.
Full PP for transfer of units from restricted HQs
i.e. PP to move out of Kwantung/Manchuko, India & China.
No switching land unit to air HQs etc. to do this cheaply
Full PP to transfer units from restricted HQs to allow movement across borders.
Thai forces can not move out of 3 hexes of their national frontier.
AVG must remain in Burma or China.
Various fixes to correct issues with the PP systems shortcomings.


5. INVASIONS / LAND COMBAT
No sub invasions.
No airdropping 1 squad via airdrop.
Only allow landings/invasions at dots hexes or bases.
No use of portions of parachute units to seize hex's
No unit fragment to cut off retreat, Units blocking retreats must be of realistic size (brigade or above).
Only airdrop a unit on a target if it has at least 40 Prep Points on the target it’s dropped on.
Gamey Tactics ? 

6. STRATEGIC BOMBING
No strategic bombing in or out of China until 4/43
No Chinese City bombing until 1944.
No bombing of Chinese Industry.
Stop unbalancing of China Theatre?

7. NAVAL MOVEMENT
Malacca strait must not be crossed by IJN surface ships until Singapore is in IJA hands.
Workaround for Naval guns shortcomings at Singapore?


9. ART
Only two independent artillery units may bombard for each division in the hex.
Stops Japanese Death Star Atrillery / Evacuation of all ART from Manchuria?

10.AIR COMBAT
Maximum mission altitude for fighters resticted to band with maximum maneuverability.
Helps with constant 'Dive' when using max altitude


all these are negotiable, just a starting point really as from my strategy mp experience some form of house rules are almost always required.

2 day turns are a requirement so the war moves along at a decent place.

all realism optns on, player defined upgardes off.

should make one turn a day with more at weekend. im in the uk.
