OK been a while since I messed about

Attached to this thread are revised and updated Scen 1 and 2.

Main changes.
Bases - Lots of new bases in NZ/Aus/China/Burma/Malaya some are to make the AI perform better some are purely because it offended me to have railway lines on the map that couldn't be used bases are in the 1600 - 1720 range if you want to look at them - some of the names may be slightly out especially in China.

Resources etc - A little more on map LI for both sides to better reflect food production reduced off map supply and 'magic supply to compensate in most cases. (China/Burma/SEA/Russia mostly)

A few minor aircraft tweaks - eg Beaufighters now attack bombers becdause the code handles them better as attack bombers than FB's same with Mosquitoes - if you don't like change back

More allied aircraft set to CW nationality especially FAA types as FAA sqns are a mix of nationalities and this allows them all to use the aircraft.

Small tweaks to OOB in China (splitting units) to cope with new bases

Post 6/45 increases in US and CW device replacements to reflect re prioritisation of replacement to the hot war - basically just in case the game is still going until mid 46

An updated AI file please delete all existing aei01-00x.dat and aei01-00x.dat files if you want to keep them copy to a subfiolder - at present the new AI file has NO variants and therefore will not overwrite the existing files so you need to delete them or you wont be using the latest files.

Scen 2 only on top of existing Scen 2 increases - added about 30 additional ships to the IJN to make them a little stronger in mid war period 6/42 - 12/43 specifically 2 extra CA's and few tankers, Ak's, DD's and a couple of my surprise AMC's again feel free to delete they are at the end of the file - they give both the AI and an IJN player a couple of extra toys to play with when the Fletchers start rolling in but not enough to unbalance scen.

Lots of tweaks and corrections that have been sent in as well over the last couple of years - I am sure I have missed a few so feel free to let me know of any errors in the thread below.

Edit v2
Added Cav Designation to 1st Chinese Cav Corps
Adjusted MG device in 7811 Chinese corps
Changed Device in Mobile Eenhid
Amended Wiraway Bomb Load
Removed Port from Reid River
Moved starting Location 1st motor Bde (aus) to Brisbane
Updated Dutch and Soviet Subs to match class files
Wright now arrives day 3 at PH
Moved Alchiba/Aries and Mauna Loa to later arrival dates


v3 a few HQ changes in 45 per Kulls spot on Air groups and a few Chinese HQ changes
Enjoy

v4 fixed Boomerang bomb load and tried again with Kulls updates !!!

v5 Corrected a couple of issues with Chinese supply caps on bases, amended 24th Chinese Base Force, Corrected 2 ships from list above moved from PH to Anchorage, reverted Beaufighters and Mosquitos back to FB's undoing change above as on balance not an air guy so trusting original team more than my testing, added 5 new Gulf bases in Australia, removed Fairey Battle except as Invasion reinforcements

Both scenarios are AI and PBEM capable - although experienced players for either side will cream the AI in either scenario.

Great!

I'm just studying the scenario 1 for another game after my Guadalcanal PBEM, your work is much appreciated!!!


Btw, can be a problem for the Tracker tool to handle these new bases?

I found the answer thanks to the following thread, every new base must be added in the regional areas.

Andy, do you have a name list of the new bases?
In this way I can modify the tracker region file more quickly.

Thanks!

Thanks again!

You are using an extended map artwork with a standard map scenario. Not Andys fault nor is he able to fix it.

Andy,

I think these bases should be located in Thailand (maybe already are, just in your list are in Burma):

1639 Three Pagoda's Pass
1640 Nieke
1641 Bampong



If someone uses Tracker and wants an updated region file, attached you can find the original "Kull_Regions_v131a" file with the new bases named "Kull_Regions_v140_Scenario1_Update" located in the correct regions.

Kull, let me know if for you is fine otherwise I will use another one

That's fine - thanks for doing this! Also as Andy's response indicates, the assignment of bases to "Regions" isn't a "Hard Science". For example, some of the Tracker Region files group all Japanese Homeland bases into "Japan". Others group them by the large islands (Honshu, Kyushu, etc). In my file all the Japanese islands that share road/rail links go in one region while "Hokkaido" is separate, simply because that makes it easier to know which of the bases in "Japan" share fuel, oil, supply and resources via overland flow.

My region files were done at a time that Floyd was considering making two or three levels of nested regions
available. So you could have the individual Japanese Islands as regions, then combine some of them
into a second mega region and also the possibility of having a number of mega regions/regions combined
into another mass region. So, I have been using Kull's region files as a start and then modifying it
as necessary for different mods.

I wonder if someone re-grouping the new bases made a typo and put in the Soviet country code on one of them?

Sorry, I'm rather new to this tool, how can I combine more regions together?

Thanks a lot for continuing to improve a great game. If I didn't already believe there are champions for WITP:AE, I would now.

I did have a senior moment and unzipped the files in the main directory instead of the SCEN directory. All fixed now and everything shows up as advertised.
Thanks again!
