This one totally slipped by me, so maybe you also: Storm over the Pacific has had a beta patch posted. This one fixes the 'time at sea' bug, which was crucial.
I'm excited about trying SoP again, now that we have shore bombardment working properly, supply is working right, and the two new features 'time at sea' and 'distance from port,' which make the naval game so much more realistic - no more parking Japanese fleets off the US coast, or parking carriers way out at sea. You get too far from port, you lose efficiency fast. You stay at sea too long, you drastically lose efficiency.
