Just a quick poll for Japanese players... especially those who have progressed through the mid to late campaign time frame -
1. What is your PEAK HI USE (not production) on a daily basis?
I am guessing it goes up with time, as Japan produces more, and more planes, and engines. Maybe someone should calculate cost of all repaired R&D plane, and engine factories, add initial armament, vehicles, and shipyards expenses, add average pilots raining cost, and compare it with overall HI production?
Also, more interesting question would be:
What was HISTORICAL HI usage?
To scale it into game.
And young padwan why do you think I am polling for this information?
Answer is not that easy, when compared to game, because players tend to stop quite lots of armament, and shipyard production, of which historical Japan did neither.
Actually, to simulate poor pilots quality, economy should probably crash in late 1943 (no enough HI for pilot training).
