Looking closer at the Wee-Vee which unfortunately the message text in the previous screen obscured...




If left in Readiness repair it will not fully repair as denoted by the RED Current repair Estimate with a # sign...so lets "Click Here"

After "Clicking Here" we see the Wee-Vee if set to Pierside Repair. Pierside Repair has no bearing on a Ports Docking Limits as the Repair Pier's are different than the Unloading Docks.

Note the repair time dropped to 105 days but the Wee- vee still will not fully repair Pierside as there is Major Damage. So lets "Click Here" again.

This takes us to repair Ship Mode...however this is not as efficient as Pierside. Repair ships are better used at advanced bases with little Nav Support or Repair Yards...so lets click again.

Here we see what the Wee-Vee would look like if I decided to stick her in the Yard. However her 32,600 tons would count against Pearl Harbor's 100,000 ton yard limit. Since her major Float damage is only 29 I'll opt for Pierside for now...and fill the yard up with lesser combatants that will repair quickly.

Also note the Wee-Vee will fully repair in the yard as denoted by the white current repair time estimate.

So after one day this is what the "Ships Under Repair" screen (as opposed to the "Active Ships" screen) looks like at Pearl Harbor....

Note that the "Manage Ships Under Repair" button you see above also lets you do all that without having to go into each ship's detail screen.

Nice feature indeed.
But a quick Q;
Is this estimated time to finish the repairs or is it WILL be finished after x# of days?

Thanks
Just a detail point.

Repair shipyard
Capacity 100,000
Used 69,305

Since you are using less than capacity in shipyard, will the ships repair quicker or should you fill to capacity to gain maximum benefit?

Thanks, Pat

The 105# days repair time with pierside repair, do that mean that it will repair for 105 days and then stop with the ship still damaged or dose it mean that it will repair for say 80 days and then stop

The number of torpedo hits at Pearl is excessive. The first wave of B5Ns carried 40 torpedoes and 50 heavy modified AP projectiles. The second wave of B5Ns carried lighter HE bombs used for attacking the airbases. The actual pHit for the torpedoes during this attack was about one in three, while the pHit for the AP projectiles was apparently lower. The performance of Japanese torpedo bomber crews at the beginning of the war was about 22% hitting, twice that of USN torpedo bomber crews throughout the war, and they had a further advantage of surprise at Pearl Harbor. However they did not get more hits than torpedoes launched!

We don't want to discuss the same thing over and over again, do we?

Check the japanese AAR for a lenghty and in the end unneccessary discussion regarding the PH attack.

No, I'd just like to see something that looks like it might be a game instead of a two year proctological exam.

Responding to the questions on repair:

quote:

It's pretty accurate at the time that you first set it. However, things can change. Adding other ships to be repaired by the same repair assets, moving in more naval support, changing repair priorities or so on can adjust the results. In addition, for "offline" repair modes (everything other than "Readiness") there can be a delay of a few days before the ship is ready to sail again after repairs are complete.

quote:

The AI does handle its own repairs.

quote:

Since you are using less than capacity in shipyard, will the ships repair quicker or should you fill to capacity to gain maximum benefit?


If there's enough excess capacity to "upgrade" the priority on one of the ships being repaired, then it will speed things up. Each priority level effectively increases the repair cost of a ship in exchange for faster repairs.

quote:

The 105# days repair time with pierside repair, do that mean that it will repair for 105 days and then stop with the ship still damaged or dose it mean that it will repair for say 80 days and then stop


That means that it will take 105 days to repair the damage that can be repaired in Pierside mode. It will then be left with some Major damage that will still need to be repaired in a Shipyard (or if only a few points of Major damage, a Repair ship could do it).

Regards,

- Erik

Ok, I'm sure we could delay the release for a while to fully script the PH attack, since everyone knows that if you have bad luck and lose a few more BBs at PH, there's no way the Allies can win the rest of the war. Similarly, if the Japanese sink 0 BBs, which is about as likely as sinking 6 BBs in my test, the Japanese player should just restart - right?

Seriously though, I think folks that are very bothered by the fact that there is a bell curve on the PH results need to step back and remember that the war goes on for years and PH means very little. In addition, I'm sure that after release there will be a December 8th scenario for those that want their results to precisely match history every time.

Could we spend more time tweaking various factors of the PH attack? Yes, but the results right now are close enough, the results for the overall war in all situations are excellent and so we'd end up effectively making lots of little custom tweaks for PH and only PH, which doesn't seem like a good use of time for what would be fairly little return. I'd rather release AE and if a much larger body of results (and customers) after release suggest we should tone things down further in PH, we will.

Regards,

- Erik

And who is to say that the historic result is the "normal" result. The IJN did not have multiple attempts at attacking PH. It could easily be that their real world results were from either end of the bell curve and AE may more accurately represent the real range of possible outcomes.

Variance all probably caused by that butterfly . . . . . . . . . .

Here we see what the Wee-Vee would look like if I decided to stick her in the Yard. However her 32,600 tons would count against Pearl Harbor's 100,000 ton yard limit. Since her major Float damage is only 29 I'll opt for Pierside for now...and fill the yard up with lesser combatants that will repair quickly.

Also note the Wee-Vee will fully repair in the yard as denoted by the white current repair time estimate.




since she has 29 major flood damage can we not do like we used to be able to and pumper her out and patch her up at pearl and then send her to the west coast for major repairs?

Yes we can.

so once i repair the minor flood damage can i sail her back to the west coast without fear of it sinking?

Is there a break even point for an Allied ship like Wee-Vee that you would put into the shipyard when it comes to flood damage?? Her's is at 64 and with Allied damage control, she is probably safe from sinking. I've had many BBs with 99/95/x after the initial attack and survive as long as they take no more hits.
