From: Alberta, Canada
Most of my RES transports are only just now reaching their pickup points. As some of them are far away.
I've got boats going to Port Arthur for crying out loud. Most of them are instructed to dump their loads at Tokyo
because it's THE hub from which everything flows. Supplies and fuel leaves from here headed south and RES
and oil are supposed to arrive from all over the map. Tankers are in route to Shukoka and Toyoama and I've
got tankers inbound to Miri to start the oil flowing from there. I hope to have in my hands on Palembang in about
a month game time. I've got to subdue Singapore's air power first. One of my next immediate goals is Singkawang.
I hope to be able to park a Betty squadron there with an HQ unit for the TT's and shut down the Allied naval traffic
through there. Plus it's an obvious place to go to set up for the Palembang assault.
But the sinking levels of the various goodies at Tokyo and the home islands generally isn't all that encouraging.
EDIT: The Tracker program calculates that there's two days worth of RES in Tokyo. I hope that's not correct.
]b]I've shut off the HI so maybe that'll help.
Why ship to Tokyo? You need to shorten your routes Larry. Port Arthur to Fukuoka...done. Keijo to Fukuoka...done. Fusan to Fukuoka...done. Shikuka to Wakkanai...done. Hakodate to Ominato...done.
I hope you don't ship from Ocean Island, or planning to? No need and a waste of fuel. Look for bases really close to Japan initially to solve your resource issue, then if you still have trouble meeting demand then go a little farther. Like you said, your transports are just arriving at their bases to pick up resources, it's early so don't panic.
Turning off industry is panicking at this stage of the game.
You're too focused on turning off industry to save HI. Read some Japanese AAR's and see what others are doing. Look at how many aircraft use the Ha-31. Do you need four or five producing that engine? Most likely not. Look at what you will need and plan accordingly. It's a lot to digest, but you need to get a plan and see what you need, what you don't and where you need to tweak.
