From: The Imperial Palace.
I'm playing a PBEM of Scenario 2 (Hakko Ichiu) as Japan. On the first turn after I applied the patch, I have noticed something very troubling: Cam Ranh Bay's supply jumped from about 200,000 to 450,000 supply -- apparently at the expense of every base to the west of it, including everything in Malaya, Bangkok and Saigon. Bases in Malaya and Vietnam lost as much as 3/4 of their supply. I have spent a lot of time (and lost a few ships to subs) supplying Malaya, so needless to say, I'm not happy.
I'm seeing similar problems in China, the Philippines, and the Home Islands. No problems in islands not connected to one another by roads/rail -- the problem seems to be with connected land bases.
Here are some numbers, from Tracker, comparing turn 20 to turn 21 (we're in late Dec 41). I haven't seen any jumps like this up to the point in the game.
Singora: 28,776 to 9,284 :(
Kota Bharu: 27,352 to 8,174
Kompong Trach: 25,832 to 5,312
Alor Star: 4,260 to 2,741
Patani: 5,732 to 1,760 :(
Bangkok: 59,603 to 40,524 (even though I had a TF unloading supply there)
Kompong Chang: 4,233 to 1,255
Saigon: 93,033 to 45,300
Cam Ranh Bay: Changed from 214,373 to 429,252. No TF unloading there.
Hong Kong: 22,582 to 68,937
Canton: 34,930 to 10,492 - sigh
Wuchang: 7,000 to 10,000
Port Arthur: 12,091 to 183,118 -- that's not a typo! a 1000% increase in one turn.
In the Home Islands, Tokyo suddenly gained 300,000 supply, again at the expense of other bases, including several that were trying to repair expanded factories:
Tokyo: 1,380,571 to 1,694,306
Yokohama: 32,290 to 10,575
Hiroshima: 33,147 to 7,408 -- even though I'm trying to repair an expanded factory there
Kobe: 27,000 down to 5,000
Shimonoseki: 75,126 to 44,961
Fukuoka: 62,823 to 43,821
Ominato: 14,770 to 4,403
In the Philippines/Formosa, smaller oddities, but still odd.
Takao: From 70,704 up to 78,596
Aparri - which is completely unoccupied now (I've moved everything south to Tuguegaro): 6,973 to 13,853 - it should be going down, not up. And yet:
Tuguegaro: 9,873 to 2,956 :(
Vigan stayed the same
Takao: 70,704 to 78,596
Taihoku: 2,541 to 786
Lingayen: grew a bit, but a TF is unloading there, so that was expected
No problems at island bases like Truk, Kwajalein, Wake, etc. Also, my total supply (as reported by Tracker) seems right: from 4,805,636 on turn 20 to 4,802,214 on Turn 21 -- consistent with the decline in previous turns. (Remember, I'm playing Scenario 2; thus the large numbers.)
Perhaps this will correct itself magically after a turn? I'm most concerned about the teleportation of supply from Malaya to Cam Ranh Bay, though. My opponent has patrolled that route aggressively with subs, and I've lost not a few ships putting supply into Singora etc -- and unloading there takes time, as those are small ports. I really don't want to have to do it all over again. :(
Is anyone else seeing this?
