I am currently modding and trying out the Downfall scenario. I have given all major US bases 900 000 supply and fuel so that rookie players dont have to think to much about supply convoys

I gave USA the following
Shooting star
Jet fighter that i called XP-1. Its range is a bit longer than the Mustang(can reach Tokyo from Naha)
B-52 bomber(with all stats from the B-52 wikipage), but to avoid it beeing to much of a wank it dont have any defences at all, but carry lots of bombs instead. When stationed at Pearl the B-52 can reach all of the japanese mainland

What happened? the AI actually got smarter and now i get attacked at night with japanese bombers, something that didnt happen in any game i played the scenario previously.
I also got planes i didnt know would show up. Early version of Hurricane at Singapore and FA1 fighter at Pearl(on the info it say only avalible in december 1941:))

This is my last turn:

The info screen read 800 enemy aircraft shot down and around 50 on my side. I credit most of the downed enemy planes to the fact that my big carrier force south of japan is like a beacon for the enemy aircrafts
Before this turn Tokyo had 540 high industry remaining, after this turn and with all the hits it has 35!.


B-52 can fly at 50 000 feet and if set at 40 000 then it is 2000 feet higher than the best japanese climber. At that height it dont hit anything. You see the result at 5000 feet, but with the sky thick with CAP and the B-52s cant defend themselves

This is a scenario build for people like me that care more about killing the enemy and fight than logistics I will try to make this scenario as good as possible and then i hope to be able to zip it
