Don't know if this is an error but at start up these Bn seem to be in the wrong locations or have the wrong objectives/attachment for the OOB.

I/143, II/143 and III/143 are located in Saigon with objectives in S Thailand and are attached to the 55 Div. The rest of the 55 is located at Battambang with Tavoy as an objective that is except 144 Regt, which has Guam as an objective and is attached to the 4th Fleet. An error I think.

To further complicate the issue there're three other Bns (I/124,II/124 and III/124) based in Battambang with Sarawak objectives. These are part of the 31st, the rest of which are in China.

My thinking is the two Rgt are in the wrong starting locations, they should be swapped over.

Naah, most LCUs are in right location (I recall two Landing Engineering Regiments start in Japan, but they should be in initial wave). There should be some more ships, and Construction Units (but they don't fit in Amphibious TFs in current model) in first wave. And there are too many TFs to start with, to help AI (And no Japanese Battleships at sea, in KB meeting TF). But generally, most are OK.

Check Niehorster's page

AFAIR RA/BTS did not touch LCU OOB, concentrating on Navy and Air toys.
144th regiment and assorted batallions are like that in Stock 1 scenario already

Someone has. In stock the the 124 Bns are in Cam Ranh Bay with one on a ship. The 143 Bns are on ships in Saigon heading for S Thailand and none are attached to the 4th Fleet.

TThe locataions are the complete opposite of what is going on in RA.

RA 8.1
I started a PBEM game just as it was upgraded to that version and at that time a number of units were out of position. Particularly the invasion of Malaysia small forces and the amphib task forces.

It took me about 6 game days to make the landings along the Malaysia coast that I could make on day 1 in Stock.

Not sure if it was rectified.
Probably best to give the info in the Mods section to the BTS thread by Sir John III, but in my lurking thru, RA has become the step child to the newer and flasher BTS mods.

Still having some fun with RA (the game continues),
but probably not choose to play it again due to very low supply levels, the adaption of the DaBabes Refinery (no supply production) and the initial invasion delays.

Didn't see this thread until now. Sorry about that.

I've moved a bunch of things around in the two BTS Mods. Is this an RA game? Haven't touched RA in quite a while.

OK. Run through your questions and I'll jump on them to help as much as I can.

Basically the 143 and 124 are in the wrong starting locations. They should be reversed.

One Bn of the 143 is attached to 4th Fleet. I don't beleive this should be. If it is then it's a long way from were it should be at the start.

According to Niehorster's page, the 143 was on ships (Saigon) heading for S Thailand and the 124 was tasked with Borneo and based at Camranh Bay.

Got it. Will look at all three Mods and see what we have done.
