Just found this note in my Between the Storms email. Had another message there that I had not seen. If you send to me, use my msn.com address or PM me. Something is wrong with the BTS gmail address.
Here we go:
Hello, i have been PBEMing with AdmNelson for the last couple of months in BTS-H, and given that the mod is undergoing some renovations i'd figure i'd point out a couple of bugs.
First, DE Starling and CL Belfast both have anachronistic refits at game start: Belfast's starting fit is set as "Edinburgh Class 10/1942, and a quick check of Wikipedia seems to agree that she got her radar suite and augmented AA in November of '42. DE Starling, who starts at Aden on 12/7, is set as "Black Swan Class 11/1944" and the ship herself doesn't seem to have been completed until April '43 though accelerating a sloop would be very mundane considering the scenario. She start
Secondly, AUS 8th brigade, which starts at Newcastle, has AUS '44 squads in it's TOE. Depending on whether or not the brigade's equipment is dumped into the pools when it withdraws sometime in late 42, this could allow the Allies to upgrade the australians to '44 squads much faster than is normal or intended. At Port Moresby, the Papuan Infantry Btn has 0 AV since the Papuan Inf. Section device does not contribute to AV.
Also lore-wise, i'm curious about what happened with GB having the option to build the super-hoods since they don't seem to appear in the mod. Were they simply not built due to financial constraints, or is there something else that happened with them.
Finally, AdmNelson has asked me to take Bill Brown's place as his playtesting partner. I've quite enjoyed playing the mod so far, and am curious to see the changes in action myself. I'm also thinking of running an AAR on the playtest build.
Welcome Sir! Will email you so we have direct communications rolling.
