If you filter out everything except for the Resources and sort them w/ biggest producer at the top you'll find that Salt Lake City and
Takhoma are the biggest two and consequently I'm guessing a lot of resources will leave the west coast via Takhoma.

<snipped>



I was just thinking today about How I need a way to identify big producers of oil/fuel etc.
This shows me how.

I am sure over time I'll have the main ones committed to memory.

I'm playing this game as the Japs against Jim and simultaneously I'm playing against the AI as the Allies and I don't trust my memory so
I have to know how to look this information up again and again. This is the list of cities that have fuel. I've checked this list against the
cities that have oil refineries and most of the big fuel cities have a refinery. I'm glad you find the technique handy.

SC CH-4# is in the same hex as an Allied sub unescorted and she's got no ASW and I'm leaving it in the hex because I'm hoping that the
sub expends torps on the SC rather than a more expensive ship, of which there are many in the hex. I'm using the SC as bait so that she
can use her outstanding manuevering ability to make a torp miss her and even though the surface fight might not be equal CH-4 could
easily damage a sub and a damaged sub is good news right now. So I'll leave her there for now.

EDIT: Yeah, I know I posted this thing in the wrong AAR. Just skip over this bad boy.

Tokyo is getting low on fuel. And there's an awful lot of traffic that is going to continue to pass through there for the next 30 days and I'll
need fuel for all that........I'm going to put a temporary moratorium on the export of fuel from Tokyo. I'll still send supplies out of course
and the goal is to have about 500K of fuel in Tokyo again as the "working level" for this hub in the pipeline. I'm guessing that Tokyo will
have 500K of fuel in about 2.5 weeks or so. There's a huge refinery in Tokyo: 265(45) so far w/ repair turned on so maybe we'll see
more yet out of Tokyo......anyway, there's fuel coming into Tokyo fast enough to gimme that 500K figure again soon.

EDIT: Wrong post again. Then there's the next post and it's in the wrong AAR too. I'm moving them one at a time.

I probably shouldn't be doing this but I stripped off the BB from the Air Combat TF and some of the carriers escorts and made a ad hoc
Surface TF to charge back into the Kwajalein hex and see if I can't cause some carnage. Manufacture some mayheim.

EDIT: This post too is in the wrong AAR. Consider it advertizing. Or something.

Hi larry - I forgot to ask - what level have you set the AI on ?

Excellent question. I didn't change any of the preferences so I'm guessing it's "historical". But from the performance I''m getting from
the AI so far I probably should have gone for something a little harder. I'm slamming all his invasion TF's and killing all the troops before
they land and the Jap invasions are behind schedlue. I'm playing the Jap side in a PBEM with Jim Moore and it's going a lot better so I'm
guessing a human player is the way to go if you can swing it. At least for playability or reasonable results in your gameplay.

Thanks for the reply Larry - I guess your right about a human player being the way to go. But you can still have fun and learn the mechanics of the game with the AI.

This combat result displays the Miri situation pretty well. The Japs are invading again and my ships are on the hunt for the transports.
This has happened twice before and it looks like this time they might actually get somebody ashore at Miri. We'll see.

Elmer has subs, well, at least one sub, at the bottom of Australia already. Good to know. Those 4 hits are going to slow down this sub
pretty well, I expect.

This is just one of the several that occured and is typical of the results. No hits on my DD's yet. So far so good.

I've got industries that are failing still. The ones in the yellow boxes in the picture bother me the most. I've got a vague memory of having
done something about Pearl. I believe I have at least one ship headed for Pearl w/ resources. I'll look into that and get back to you.

Well, I sit corrected. I don't have any resources headed for Pearl yet. I'll have to keep that in mind when I'm doing my moves.

Here's how hard I'm pushing the training programs at SFO. I've got each squadron w/ at least one more pilot than planes so that they
are supposedly all airborne w/ one resting and I've trimmed the range back to "normal" instead of 0 ( seems less gamey that way ).
And there's a squadron of LB-30's and they don't have any planes so I've stood them down.

We've got a situation developing SW of Davao. There's two Jap TF's headed west just south of the island and I'm thinking I can get the
Hermes into a good position to launch some air strikes and there's some additional boats SE of the Hermes to do backup duties. Maybe
I can get a Jap CS or CA or both tomorrow.

I'm not due to receive the services of the Yorktown for another 8 days yet. I'm planning on assigning lots of escorts to her before I set
sail from San Diego. This will give me 4 working carriers and time for some recon in force. I haven't planned all that far into the future so
I'm open to ideas about where to go with the carriers. I'm having particularly good luck at Wake so I was thinking of maybe raiding Marcus
to see if there are any Jap ships worth sinking there. Also, the Port Moresby area has lots of Jap ships so I'm going there next.

Have I shared this with you guys already? The TF name field says something about being in Carnarvon on 8Dec41 and it's 22Dec now
so it's about 14 days or 2 weeks from Colombo to Carnarvon and Perth is probably close to the same. If you are going the speed of the
convoy.

I just now discovered quite by accident that Port Hedland is a good source of resources. I couldn't have discovered that by sorting the
list of all bases by the resources column because there isn't a resources column. And there's no Industry in Port Hedland so I couldn't
use the list all industry button to discover that. And it's got so little fuel and supplies that sorting the cities with the most fuel or supply
wouldn't have Port Hedland in the top 20 or so. And so this is a little known secret of the game I guess.

I found a way around the problem I found above and learned something. I was playing around w/ the list all bases screen and discovered
that the right-most label is a toggle and that clicking on it brings up more information about the bases. If you click on it until it shows the
resources column and then sort the most resources to the top Port Hedland shows up pretty high in the list. Voila.

Watching this pretty closely I think I have a way to make the AI less vulnerable to allow a player to play to the max probably only going to b e fit for an enhanced Ironman scenario
