I don't do a traditional sandbox. I like using the units from game as it seems more likely to produce results consistent with gameplay, and I have a test game to use that's now in 1/44. That includes much of what I would need in terms of units, etc.
This can also though take few few turns to get stuff where you want it. I usually just runs few at 4 day turns if that is the case.
It is attached in the thread on air transport intercept if you want to use it.
So the best thing to do would be to set up another AE folder then use the file from above?
That would start me off?
If you want to use this file yes, you'd have to download and load up a version of 1123k, then use this game. It's basically a continuation of one of my first games as Japan against the AI, and of course a lot of early Allied ships are missing. There is enough of everything, and the Japanese economy is till going, surprisingly, after almost no tinkering in the past year.
On the Allied side I only occasionally have moved stuff around, so a lot of things are sitting on the West Coast. There is a nice fleet at Pearl though for tests, and a Japanese one not too far off. I was doing CV clashes for a while, and also atoll landings for both sides. There are some big bases for both sides to use in India and Burma to test any number of CAP/strike settings and so forth. It just may take a few days of turns to get what you want in place each time you do something. For me it's easier than opening the editor but I also just like the feel of doing things in areas where they would actually happening game.
