Your test runs must be like the one I did, with a huge amount of building points to see, how much the building list needs - not without any points!
Au contraire, mon ami, my test runs were wholly unmodified standard loads - these start you with 200 warship points and 100 merchant ship points - and 0 repair points.
HOW do you change what it starts with? I see no field - although there must be one - as all scenarios have these values.
These points have a device number. Look at it and you can change the pool...
And yes, you must look at how much it is consuming, because otherwhise things like the one discussed here are happening...
When Japan has built ( I just say some numbers) 250 AKs, 10 AOs, 35 TKs within the war, then a "historic szenario" must offer enough points to built all this 295 civil ships with the shipyards in the game - as they where built in them. When you add extra ships to this 295 which were intended to be built, which were cancelled because of lacking materials, etc. - then you do something I really like! But even then, this 295 ships have to be built at the historical correct dates when stopping this extra ships when the player doesn't change anything concerning the shipyards...
You always declare: "we can't do this as there were only so much steel", "we can add more capital ships to offer free choose of what to built as there were only so much big shipyards" "one mustn't expand the factories as Japan couldn't import machine tools"
But while there every inch away from history is a real drama, it's totally ok to you that Japanese Shipyards must built German, Thai and Vichy ships; that only a very small percentage of the historically built ships will enter service as you've made them incredible expensive (2 KM SS as expensive as a Unryo CV...); that some ships are built (for points!!!) over years because of their enlarged durability while their construction originally may have only lasted for some month...
Go on as you want, if you don't understand this problem, there's no hope in further efforts to convice you - so I'll let you go on undiscussed and play another mod or change your Version in a much more historic way...
