HI has been increased in some Allied bases in places like Manila and Java. I adjusted the levels and they are between stock 1 and DBB 30 at start. There is a cost to to IJN pre-war expansion. You need quick conquest of the SRA/DEI for HI and Oil.
John and myself have been a fan of giving players options, but having a cost. With the newest version you now have THREE potential CV capable fighters (Sam, George, and Jack). You cannot have them all. Well, maybe you can, but something else will not be built.
The IJN means lots of new ships as we streamlined the various classes through numerous revisions. You cannot afford everything. Right now, I have most of my sub construction halted.
China - There is over 50% increase in non-infantry devices and more supplies that can be generated and come in automatically. Most Allied bases start with forts at 3 or better.
I hope you have Tracker up and running to assist you.
Tracker= Must have and I use it every turn during games and a lot prior to.
You two have done a great job giving people options, that is for sure. I need to delve deeper into it.
Regarding IJN fighters, Jack has a nasty little change beginning with the second Jack model. Well played
Sometimes things said in Nitwit sound very different in English.
