From: a maze of twisty little passages, all different
Thank you, Che. I have all the device stats I need (I put in only devices that either already exist in the game or for which I have all necessary data). Concerning convoy units, it's possible that they won't be needed. In the editor, when you look at the Locations page, there is a field named "Withdraw" followed by two radio buttons labeled "1" and "2", the "type of withdraw". According to the editor manual, you can enter there the year/month/day when the unit is auto-withdrawn from the game, and "1" means the devices of the unit returned to the pool while if "2" is selected, the devices are returned to the pool.
So it seems you may be able to define a unit with the devices you want to deliver to the pool and that is present at the beginning of the game, place it somewhere out of the way, put it under a permanently restricted command, and set it to auto-withdraw with type "2" on the day you want the devices delivered.
Somewhere out of the way would ideally be an off-map base. As all the units should do is auto-withdraw, this place wouldn't even need to be displayed on the map. Again, I don't know that it is possible to define additional off-map locations for the Japanese side.
