I have a number of aircraft factories that are not producing. I am not sure if I do not have enough oil or fule or both? I have plenty of resources in Japan. I can email a willing accountant to look at my turn? Also i curious for an evaluation on how the economy I have is working. When should I be stockpiling? Are my resources oil, fuel being spread around by iteslf.
thanks jason

Aircraft factories need engines and HI points, nothing more.

What Puhis said. You need to check your engine output for each airframe not producing. Also, you need to make sure you are producing enough HI to do many things in your economy. Pilot Training, Airframes, Engines, Vehicles, Armaments, Naval Shipyard, and Merchant Shipyard all need HI to operate. Pilot training will eat up a large chunk of your HI on the first of every month in the later parts of the war when pilot pools build up.

You should think about expanding some of your periphery HI locations in your SRA. These are closer to your fuel/resource locations and HI is a global resource. Once you produce it, it is available everywhere you might need it. You should shoot for a million or more of HI in reserve as you go into the later parts of the war.

So um........hey Jason: if you'll post a saved game I'll be happy to take a look at it. I'm playing the Jap side in my PBEM game and I'd love a chance to compare notes with you, give you a full report so to speak.

I'm sure larry can help you well enough, but if not I'll have a look... I helped code Tracker and have given plenty of advice before...

PM'd email addy.

Should have offered to look also. Sorry. Post a file here and I am sure you will get all kinds of help. There are many here so much better than I.

Some interesting information, but not as detailed as it could be. You need to load one of the region definitions from Tracker File > Import Region-Base Definitions Select from the dialog box the folder "region-mappings", and then One of the region definitions. I use Kull_Regions_v131a, I believe. This will split your bases into regions and give you a better idea of what is going on with your economy.

From your strategic map it appears you do not have the land bridge from Singapore to Fusan. This means you have to move everything by sea, mostly. So, what you end up with is TFs moving raw materials (Fuel, Oil, and Resources) from Singapore and other large ports to the Home Islands. It does appear that the Allies are putting the squeeze on your in Thailand/Malaysia. This will have an impact on some of your shipping.

Looking at your WiTP:AE Chart you have only 1949 HI producing, I guess that is why you are asking for help. You also only have 188 HI in reserve. You should have upwards of a million, yes, that is a 1 with 6 zeros after it in reserve by now. What to do? Cut off your shipyards for now, that will save you 6573 HI in demand. Turn your armaments off for now, you have nearly a quarter million points in reserve. This will save you another 3720 for a total of 10,293 HI. This will allow you to start building a surplus of 1400 or so a day.

As for aircraft production, the chart you have there is not complete, so I can only see a fraction of your production. You have a small pool of aircraft (278). This should be larger. The more aircraft you have the easier it is to blunt the allied spear as it thrusts towards you.

As for the spoilage at the bases, check your supply demands on those bases. You may have them set to stockpile supply and are spoiling that increased supply level. Also, try setting a larger base that has unlimited supply capability to stockpile and draw some of that supply from those bases.

Medan has a lot of fuel that should be going to Singapore.

Others have any ideas?

I'm using my work computer and tried to access the link provided in your post and received multiple virus alerts. I'm just pointing out to others the above link may not be worth the trouble to check out. Some may not have a problem, but I did.

Perhaps a screenshot of Jason's info could be posted instead to get more input?

As Nashvillen stated ... without the regions set ... we can't see the Resources and Fuel in Japan... Do this and I'm sure you'll note that in Japan (excluding hokkaido & Sakhalin), the OP has not enough Res (and maybe fuel) to produce HI. The OP in my opinion prob hasn't enough convoys set up hauling res.

LARRY SETUP THE REGIONS ...

[edit] the picture above is not valuable without it ...

Set up the regions.......roger that. I'm assuming that I have to do that every time I start up Tracker because I've done that before and it didn't save the settings. Not that I've noticed. I'm using Krull's regions when I do that.

No - It should stay there. I can only assume that you deleted the DB and started again ?

But, most of the oil shown is not available to the refineries on the home islands. Most of the oil is still at Palembang, Hakodate, Singapore, Medan, etc. He has over 3 million fuel on Sumatra, 580,000+ on Borneo, 266,000+ on Hava, etc.
His HI is failing because he has no fuel on the Home Islands. He has drained the fuel from China, Korea, and Manchukao.
There are a lot of things he needs to fix, and getting fuel, oil and resources to the Home Islands is a big one.

Exactly, that's why I want to look at the regions. Two screen shots of the Oil/Res and Fuel/Supply will work out what needs to be done. Then organising his convoys... Dan you're spot on.

Many thanks for posting better screenshots Dan dude. And yes please post the turn file and password. I deleted the copy I had.

EDIT: On second thought, maybe it'd be better if you PM'd the password......Jason might like to keep his opponent in the dark a little longer. I still have the password myself.

Actually, can probably just do it with the screen shots we have ... so ...
1. Res - Not enough convoys from Port Arthur, Canton, shanghai, Hokkaido, Korea and maybe Singapore to Honshu
2. Fuel - from Oil Ref to Japan. Mostly Sumatra/Borneo
3. Oil - excess from Oil Centres (Oil-Ref) to Refineries. Not a big priority, but needs to be handled.

Dan, I think there is 2 obvious needs here.
1. Work out a convoy plan. This is the big one.
2. Work out what he can turn off until the needs are met. This looks like just Armament. An increase in Veh production will be needed later...

If you send me the file I can help with the convoy plan or I'm happy for you to handle it.

[edit] It looks like the OP doesn't use any convoys

Yes.........that's exactly what happened. Good catch. I had no idea.
