From: Fairbanks, Alaska
I've been plugging away at various fixes and additions.
*Fixed the duplicate sub issue by changing the Canadian S-18 to SS 118, which more standardizes it's naming with the other Canadian subs.
*Changed CVE Puncher's air group to arrive on the same date as the carrier
*Added a Monsun Gruppe Base Force to Georgetown, as well as added a small repair shipyard there so the Monsun Gruppe can properly base from the hex.
*I already had Monsun Gruppe subs in the mod, but I added more to arrive with the Monsun Gruppe Wolfpack that arrives in early 43, and additional Munson Gruppe subs to arrive at Georgetown.
*Added additional training groups for Japan that arrive in 1943 - IJA Fighter and Bomber squads, and IJN Fighter, Dive Bomber and Torpedo Bomber squads.
*Added significantly more air support at some Japanese bases that aren't starting off with enough, especially in Manchuko and some Pacific Islands, as well as Cam Ranh Bay and Bangkok. This will help free up more Japanese Engineering squads as well.
*Added a Toyohara fortress unit with coastal guns and aviation support.
*Increased Sentai size for many Japanese patrol Sentais.
*Increased the size of CVE Taiyo's fighter squadron from 3 to 9 so it can actually put up a CAP.
*Two additional Japanese carriers that were in the editor but not showing up in the mod have been fixed - the Hofukuryu and the Sentoryu - a Unryu arriving in 11/44 and a Shinano arriving in 3/45 respectively.
*Expanded the air capacity of the Shinano class from 47 planes to 90- these carriers were designed to carry up to 120 replacement airframes for other carriers, and while they were planned to only have an airgroup of 47 planes that doesn't mean that they weren't capable of carrying and operating more.
*Similarly, the Amagi class battlecruiser Ishitaka was not present in Focus Pacific, but now has been fixed. It now starts the game in the KB.
*Added the Constitution and United States to the Game - these were part of the 6 member battlecruiser class that became the Lex and Saratoga. In Focus Pacific we have the Constellation and Ranger appearing from that class as proper battlecruisers, but the Constitution and United States will arrive as Lexington class carriers. The additional carriers will help keep Japan honest in the early part of 1942, but Japan will still hold the carrier advantage until 44. Even though the allies start with many more carriers on paper, most of them are CLVs, and they are not very useful until they finish their conversions in mid 42. While the KB is still going to smash the allies, I do want them to be able to present a credible threat in 42, which currently they don't.
*Added a few additional surface units to the commonwealth nations, most notably BC New Zealand, as well as their float plane groups. Canada receives some additional AMCs.
*Added Isaac Sewers class destroyers to act as escorts for the Dutch BCs. The Admiralen class DDs just don't have the range to be useful in that role.
*Added 3 Dutch motorized Brigades, all set to arrive in February of 42. I added these as complete brigades instead of as separate regiments, as location space in the editor is at a premium. They will arrive in Batavia, Sorejaeba and Palembang.
Once I do some testing with these changes, I'll release a new patch, probably this weekend.
