Those ships sighted north of Sumatra yesterday have disappeared. Dropping off or picking up troops I now suspect.

Hopefully this map shows what is going on around hex 92,47. It was recently vacated by 4 Chinese units which moved into the north west hex leaving behind an administration unit. Parachute troops from Shanghai are order to drop on the admin unit tomorrow and that should clean up this swamp hex. More importantly it should trap those 4 units and they can then be destroyed.

Intel reported an admin unit. Turns out to be a sizeable base force. Considering what they jumped into the parachute troops did well. Not sure how they will go tomorrow but supplies (rice balls and the like) will be flown in and hopefully that will keep them going. Relief via the ground is a couple of weeks away. If they survive the coming assault I will consider flying in more troops.

I have been doing a review of the ACM and CM assets in this mod. To date most of the To’su class xAKL have been converted to ACM duty. A good little ship to keep 150 mines in order. I am intrigued about the net tender function that comes with the mod. The net tender function operates much like a mine having an effect of 100 (slightly better than the Type 4 at 88) and accuracy of 20 (this is by far and away the best accuracy of the Japanese mines with the Type 92 coming in next at 12). An interesting weapon and one that I do wish to employ. So which ships sport this feature. The To’su class doesn’t but the ACM versions of the Kiso (ex xAKL), the Hashima and Hatsutaka (both ex CMs) and the Toho (another ex xAKL and the reason why this was converted the ACM is lost to me) all have anti-submarine nets. Kiso appears to be the best as it also carries depth charges whereas the other 2 conversion only carry the nets. To bolster my ACM numbers and thereby create more permeant minefields conversion of more Kiso class to ACM is planned.

Now, as for the CMs. Japan does start out with plenty of this type. There is even a bunch of Yusen N running around with the ability to carry more than 300 mines. Conversion back to AK is required (once they have deployed their mines) so they can haul resources. Most of the CMs which can convert to ACM will do so. These ships generally have the ability to convert to Escort in ’43 and they should be more useful in that role so that is also an option down the track. There is one class of CM (Hashima class) with the ability of deploy the type 92 mine. As mentioned before it is the most accurate Japanese mine, however, it can only be deployed by the Hashima class. It also has a build rate of 50 a month so not a big supply coming through. The Hashima class has been converted to ACM except for the lead ship of the class. The reason for doing so was the low numbers produced although on the down side the Hashima can only deploy 6 of these mines at a time. The Hirashima class is the class to deploy the Type 4 mine. There are 5 in the class and they each deploy 20 mines. I am going to group them together so that 100 mines at a time can be deployed in various locations. That leaves a group of 5 other ships capable of deploying the Type 93 mine. As they tend to deploy a lot at one time they will be used sparingly.

To return then to those anti-submarine nets. Where to deploy them. The best place to put them is those ports most likely to a magnet for the Allies to attempt to mine themselves with submarines. The field is of course too big to cover. So, big well used ports versus ports not so well used but likely to be considered a good target due to likelihood of minimal defences. Any thoughts out there on good places to position these interesting looking anti-submarine nets.

How many resources do you have in Japan at this time?


Way, way less than I feel comfortable about. I have been using the HI figure as my index on how well I am keeping resources coming into Japan.

On 8 December 1941 I had 52 586 HI in the stockpile.

This figure continued to rise on a daily basis until a high of 100 226 was achieved on 29 December 1941. Then it went into free fall. On 24 January 1942 it hit a low of 36 135!!! From there it has started to rise again although it is fragile process. Currently we are at 2 February 1942 and it has moved on up to 43 889. A bottleneck in getting resources into Japan? I certainly think so. Part of the issue is me simply getting my head around the enormity of moving the bountiful stocks of resources outside of Japan back to Japan in a timely manner. Coupled with this is the mass of shipping at game start which is employed transporting masses of troops hither and yon. I am getting cargo ships into the resources transport role and this has helped to stem the tide. The other issue is the prodigious resources gobbling monsters at Tokyo and Osaka. Due to the fickle nature of resources available I regularly have reports of HI and Supply production failures at these two centres. Getting the convoy system up and running to address this issue has kept me well occupied. Getting the HI stock pile to a stage of strong growth will be a welcome relief... I hope.

You might wonder too just how much HI I am using up with express ship building. At present I only have two accelerated ships. They are Taiho and Shinano. Shinano as per LST instructions to accelerate until she arrives to negate the lower HI expenditure once she does arrive. For the time being Yamato and Musashi are both halted until HI looks better.

Perhaps there are other things I should be doing to improve HI accumulation but these are the main things going on a present.

I still have to get a better understanding of shipyards. I have probably got muddled thinking on HI and ships from tracker indicating how much HI is used up to accelerate individual ship construction. Time, I think, to go and do some ship building refresher reading and hunt down some threads on the topic. I shall also go through air craft building and shipyards and see what is producing. I know I turned a bunch of things off once the free fall started but haven't checked on them for a bit.

Yes lack of resources is definitely the problem. Has been affecting supply production but given the good stock pile of supply this is not near so aggravating a problem as HI production. Fuel, like you say, is also not an issue. On a brighter note HI jumped by over 4000 on our latest turn and with a bunch of resource convoys Home Island bound the situation is looking rosier.

It's easy.
HI->NS(or MS or other industries)->ships (or engines, tanks etc...)
When you stop or accelerate ships this affect only on NS (or MS). When you stop or build NS this affect on HI.
HI need fuel and resources, NS need HI points and ships needs shipyard points (Warships respectively NS, merchants MS).

It depends on how much you use your supplies. I use and need it very much.

In my opinion you should adapted some mod patch to improve availability of resources.

Mundy and SierraJuliet are playing with an early version of Bottlenecks.

In v1.1. - and after PM discussion with Anomander Rake - I have increased the starting resources stockpiles in the HI. However, more resource centers have been moved from the HI to the colonies and the SRA, since the ratio of resource generation at home and resource imports was heavily in favor of "home grown" resources - which is odd since Japan is resource-poor and needed to import most of their stuff. In short, even more shipping will be required for resource imports, but the timeframe provided to get convoys organized will be longer.

Hi LST,

Did I read somewhere (god.. i'm reading way too many AARs :) :) ) that you have a v1.2 built? is it up for download, or is it still considered Beta?
I think i've read of some fixes in 1.2, but wasn't sure

Hi Dave,

I have changed my naming convention to keep it coherent. The available version is the "1.1. Beta", so what I referred to as "v1.2" will be "1.1. Official release" when it is ready. Between my PBEM and the new "Railway Empire" game I haven't found the time for playtesting the latest "build", sorry.

We (I and Dave) are playing with version where are more resource center in DEI etc (existing centers are larger).
The use of cargo ship is very large. Even worries me a little in the context of my fuel.
It also creates additional problems with ports and engineers units. Everything is very nice.

Yes, I know. But is possible to making a few changes during the game.

Many thanks Anomander Rake for the heads up on shipyards and the subsequent motivation to do some research and gain a better understanding of what has been something of a mystery to me.

So, as you can see by the attached graphic I currently have 1387 shipyard points available and I have turned off 100 giving me a HI saving of 300. I did some hunting around in the ship reinforcement table and came across the naval shipyard estimate (for so many years neglected by myself) and find that current estimate is for 1267 points (hence the reason why I turned off 100 naval shipyard points.

As for accelerated ships I now have Taiho and 5 destroyers accelerated. And the other big ships – Yamato is back on and will join the fleet in 7 days (from 5 February) and I have for the time being turned off Musashi and Shinano. That will be until I work out if it is feasible to consider shipyard expansion (given the extra cost to do so in this Mod).

This, at least, is my current take on naval shipyards. Do let me know if I’ve still got learning to attend to in this area.

We (I and Dave) are playing with version where are more resource center in DEI etc (existing centers are larger). The use of cargo ship is very large. Even worries me a little in the context of my fuel. It also creates additional problems with ports and engineers units. Everything is very nice.

I like that cargo ships are now an important tool for Japans war. I still have numbers in port but that is only because they are awaiting appropriate escorts to get them to where I want them. The days of having masses of cargo ships idle are long gone.

Yes, I know. But is possible to making a few changes during the game.

My little brain will be quite happy to muddle my way through with the settings we started out on. I think too that any changes would make a fair assessment of LSTs Mod somewhat suspect. I'm enjoying the challenge immensely. Only about 8 weeks of game time gone and I feel that I am slowly coming to understand the tightrope that LST has created. I will not be surprised if I am still figuring things out in another years time.

You have more than 1 mln resources in Hakodate, easy to transport to Omimato.
But 1 mln resources is still only for less than month, maybe week or two.

Tokyo and Osaka have been in crisis for weeks. I'm glad I posted this graphic as Tokyo has been much worse (hence my reference to HI being in free fall) I now have many convoys in the pipeline and the first 100 000 resource convoy to Tokyo is a day or two out. It is a long way down the track but if my next game is another of LSTs Mods I will be doing plenty of pre planning instead of jumping in cold like I did with this one. All good though as it is making me learn the game.

I must have already had far too strong a drink from the well of unbridled optimism. I have no idea why I went for an attack without checking what was there with a bombardment first up. One infantry battalion about to be decimated, and the worst part is this is a component part of 55th Division. Better rouse up some reserved back home and get them to Burma pronto. Far too tricksy for my own good trying to give those Allied units at Moulmein a hard time. My goodness but Mundy has some troops stashed away in this area. I have located the main fighting force making an exit from Moulmein. Looks like Rangoon is not going to be a pushover.

And here I was thinking that I had let supply slip somewhat in Tokyo! :) One day I will get tracker but up and running for this game. I have used it before and like the graphs particularly to give an idea of how things are tracking... so to speak.



I have been playing around with Tracker and ver 1.1. The addition of a huge industry base nw of Oita seems like it might really impact the resource requirements for Honshu. Also, it seems like Hokkaido doesn't really generate the huge resource windfall that normally happens although there is a nice stockpile there at game start. The normal shortfall on Honshu for resources is c70-80K resources, and I think this mod it is substantially higher.

However, I have been getting very funky results in tracker and I think there might be some misallocation of inputs so this is a very rough seat of the pants guess until I get tracker up and running 100% or crunch the numbers.

Still, can't say enough good things about this mod -- everytime I open her up there are dozens of new discoveries.

I like this mod. I play it and this is very interesting.
But we (I and my allied oponent Dave) changed some industry shortcomings.
For example we downgrade HI/LI resource request from 25 to 20 and also we increased resource center on DEI, Malaya, Philipines, Indochina and Burma.
Before it Japan resource deficit from start was about more than 100k resources per day (I don't remmember 120k, 200k?).Manchukuo/China area including.
It wasn't to cover from conquest.
After changes I also had deficyt but much smaller.
My Japan resource resreves downgraded from more than 5 mln to 1 mln per month. But now I stabilized it. Still I use Manchukuo reserves but I should change it in a short time.
The use of the commercial fleet and fuel is enormous.

I have been playing around with Tracker and ver 1.1. The addition of a huge industry base nw of Oita seems like it might really impact the resource requirements for Honshu. Also, it seems like Hokkaido doesn't really generate the huge resource windfall that normally happens although there is a nice stockpile there at game start. The normal shortfall on Honshu for resources is c70-80K resources, and I think this mod it is substantially higher.

However, I have been getting very funky results in tracker and I think there might be some misallocation of inputs so this is a very rough seat of the pants guess until I get tracker up and running 100% or crunch the numbers.

Still, can't say enough good things about this mod -- everytime I open her up there are dozens of new discoveries.


The huge industry base nw of Oita are the Yahata steel works. Here is why I have created that base and why I gave it a lot of HI centers:

quote:

By 1912, 80% of Japan's pig iron production was from Yahata. An integrated mill with coke, iron, and steel facilities, Yahata was also responsible at this time for 80-90% of Japan's steel output. [...] Much of the iron ore was from China and Korea.

The continuing importance of the Yahata Steel Works to Japan's heavy industry led to Yahata being identified as a target for strategic bombing during the Pacific War, commencing with the Bombing of Yahata in June 1944, by which time the works produced 24% of Japan's rolled steel. The works were identified as the target for the second atomic bomb on 9 August 1945; due to cloud cover this was redirected to Nagasaki.

I have moved many resource centers from Hokkaido to Korea/Manchukuo/SRA because too many resources are being produced in the Home Islands compared to imports - see italics above.

And thx for the flowers

But you have more supply in Tokyo than I have in whole Japan. :-)
You should think about WitPtracker. It is useful tool for planning and industry control.

And here I was thinking that I had let supply slip somewhat in Tokyo! :) One day I will get tracker but up and running for this game. I have used it before and like the graphs particularly to give an idea of how things are tracking... so to speak.

Nice pick up there Lowpe. I’ve noted the storage of resources at Kokura (fluctuates between 70 000 to 110 000 a day). Had not gone as far as doing a proper check. The existence of the HI there does explain the pooling of resources at this location. Good work LST for getting the second A Bomb target on the board.

I have included a graphic of the current top 13 pools of resources around the map. Port Arthur, of course is the go to port but Hakodate has plenty too. Saigon and CRB also have sizeable quantities of resources to haul back to Japan. Tokyo and Osaka are conspicuous by their absence. My job is to get the stockpiles at these two places on the up and up.
