Jap AI only scenario many many many many many many amends and new AI scripts

Basically an insane Space hamster decided that lunacy was too easy and decided to get really creative

This is Tier 3 ie the hardest so its not total lunacy oh no this utter complete insanity totally bonkers.... basically the only ship not added was the Space battleship Yamato....

You have been warned...…..

v2 update with more transport and a small AI adjustment

v3 with Kulls Air HQ changes and some China HQ tweaks - further update to Ai

v4 additional nastiness in the AI mid game, fixed Boomerang Bomb load and tried again to process Kull's changes

v5 adjusted Vancouver air group and made AI air group distbn in 45 a little more variable around Tokyo

v6 decided it wasn't insane enough so added some more AI nastiness

v7 couple of fixes to AI from my own run through, some additional bases in Australia and 2 AI variant file (total 3 AI variants)

PART 1 in this post
Part 2 in my NEXT Post in this thread

Thanks!

I have the "old" ironman tier 3 scen. It's scen 10.

Now, if I download this new scenario, and rename the AI files, only those, to match scen10, overwriting the old ones, keeping the .cmt files, would that result in a "playable" game?.

Thanks !!

It won’t be optimal Truskott the New AI dole and scenario are designed in tandem

It will probably work but ok but it’s a big commitment in time to make on a maybe !!!

First thanks for the AI scenarios. For health reasons I have problems with PBM because sometimes I can't play for periods of time, and when I can play, I like to do many turns a day, so this is great.

First and observation about v1. I blasted the Japanese airfield on Vancouver island to 100% damage by bombing every day, but on Jan 1, it mysteriously send 56 zeros up and destroys my raids flying from a 100% disabled air field.

Second, the flotilla nearby has sat in place now from December 7th to January 14th and not run out of fuel, ammo, or anything else. My recollection from the older tier 3 is that is eventually left about this time.

Finally, I've played up to Jan 14 and see new versions, I'm guessing I can't update, that I have to start all over. Please advise.

Thanks.

Vancouver fixed in v5 thanks
TF I have made a small adj hopefully will fix it
Restart it may allow you to update if you overwrite the scenario in your scen file but it may not haven't tested it - the one you are playing is ok its just the refinements in the 1st post have now been added

many thanks for the feedback

Andy, I'm Playing version 5 this time and up to January 25.....please tell me I don't need to restart on V6!

Still an issue with Japanese planes in vancoover starting to fly around January 1 from a 100% damaged airfield. Is that a normal handycap for the Japanese on Hard?

The names seem perfectly Aussie to me, but as to their reality … well one of our 'mates' will need to help us out.

I assume it is stock scenario, not extended map one, right?

If it ain't Babes based I have little interest.

I can never go back to the stock scenario Allied LCU countermix.

That was the reason I pestered Andy Mac to create a Babes based Ironman scenario when I was providing play testing feedback to him on the development of the Ironman scenarios.

I'll keep playing Ironman Japan Ported to Babes, scenario 40, hoping Andy Mac gets around to giving it an update some day.

But, hey thanks for thinking of me.

Hey Andy:

I. I've really been enjoying this mod: who knew that betting the tar kicked out of you could be so fun!

II. The fighter and dive bomber squadrons on the Graf Zeppelin and Peter Strasser arrive as carrier capable, not carrier trained. Is this intended?
