From: The Big Nowhere
So, what is the best bases to ship Res/Fuel/Oil FROM and TO?
Might you give some specifics as to what base to ship what from, and to what base for the CS,please? Always confused by this.
Port Arthur and Hakodate are going to be big on resource movement. Also Shikuka will give you some.
Palembang is the main fuel point, it has 900 oil and 900 refinery, I wouldn't haul oil out of Palembang, just the fuel. Of course that is unless you have a massive surplus of oil (you shouldn't, you need 10 oil per refinery, and each oil center produces 10 points of oil...it balances out).
As for other centers keep an eye on places like Brunei, Soerabaja, Singapore, etc and remember...oil, fuel and resources will move to bigger ports from smaller ones automatically. If you will notice on northern Bornea, Brunei (being the bigger port there) is where the resource and oil will move to. It is easier to protect one large convoy leaving Brunei than to try to defend several smaller ones moving from each base. It also makes it easier to base support vessels to top off fuel and weapons for those convoy ships.
