Hii I have a deal breaker problem.

I had AKAGI hit by a torpedo in first turn. So I send it to Cam Rahn for some emergency repair. But now it stuck in the port. It does not show any way to get it out from pierside repair. I brought all my AR and a decent naval HQ. But its not working. It seems the problem is 8 inch guns that is damaged. Is there a way to sort this out.

Your Akagi shows the repair type "Readiness", not "Pierside".

Switching from pierside or shipyard repairs to readiness may take three days before the ships becomes available - time needed to verify the repairs, to check the systems, to light the boilers and get-up steam, to take on stores and to comb the bars and brothels to assemble the crew.

In the ships-in-port list the ship will be in readiness but greyed-out. If you hover the mouse pointer over the name you will see a pop-up indicating the waiting time.

I have experienced something similar with a couple of submarines lately. The number of days to finish of repairs do not diminish.

You obviously haven't bothered to read either the manual or the Ship Repair Guide.

You don't have the ship in the correct repair mode to get the "major" flotation damage repaired. You can wait for as many days as you like, it won't ever get fixed under the current disposition.

If you think this is "a deal breaker problem" you can look forward to being hit by Allied 4E bombers.

Only shipyard can repair major damage above 5 points. See this strange character beside number of repair days? That means you can not repair it under current configuration. In that case there always will be 1 day shown.

You can operate CV with little damage, but if you want to get rid of damage, you have to put Akagi into large enough Repair Shipyard. The closest one in Saigon is too small, but you can expand it (not worth it).

Anyway, like LST said, it will move into Readiness, if you order it to, but it can take few days.

I don't think that it can go up the river to Saigon.

+1

You have 2 choices - capture Hong Kong or capture Singapore. Otherwise, Shanghai and/or Nagasaki are your closest ports.

I have never, ever seen it take less than three days to manually force the move from pier side to readiness.

After the three days of delay the ship will be available to move to a shipyard large enough to repair its major damage.

Just move to "readiness"...wait a couple of days until the greyout is over and then give her a bunch of DD's and some Kates or Vals for ASW duty and then send her on "cruise" speed to a safe port with a shipyard capacity greater than her tonnage.

She won't sink with that kind of flotation damage unless you are very unlucky

What this is simulating is the need for a dry dock to repair a big hole below the water line. That's why the AR and naval support doesn't work.

Yes, tarred canvas tied onto the ship won't work in this case. You might be able to pump it relatively dry but it won't hold. Then filling the area with concrete would be a temporary measure to get it to a drydock facility in a shipyard since the Japanese don't have portable drydocks large enough.

I have seen ships come out in one day. Here's the thing, every time you go to that ship's screen and touch anything, it adds another day. Don't touch! The game thinks you're giving new orders and the cycle starts anew.

Maybe I am wrong but don't heavily damaged ships go back to repair if you miss the day it is available?

Once it starts a turn in "readiness" mode, it is available. When you change it from pierside to readiness, you have to wait a turn.
If it enters port damaged badly enough, it will begin repairing in readiness mode but will be stuck until the necessary repairs that can be completed in readiness mode are done. I think this would include putting fires out and making some emergency flotation repairs.

Oops, I didn't answer your question, did I? I've never knowingly done that so I don't know. You are probably right, if the ship is badly damaged enough.

This game will teach people patience if the people will let it.

Aren't you a little old to be "playing with it"?

Never mind. Probably safer that way.

Stand with your back to people with a container in your hand. Keep shaking the container to mix things up. Then turn around and show people the container . . .

Well my friend anyone suggesting that 'Playing with it' is for young is old enough to not to play with it... playing games(it) at this age is playing with it in my opinion. (if there is nothing else to play with)

;)
