Japanese Ships:

- CB Fuji & Kita start the scenario with 36cm rifles, and CB Okuhotaka is also built with 36cm rifles, but CB Aino, Yari, & Warusawa are built with 31cm rifles... Is that corect?

Since the Chinese mods are not done yet, I spent my time looking at the Allied aircraft and found these problems.

Allied Aircraft
#393 has wpn 1 as 1987 and wpn 11 as 174 Both should be 1987
#485 has wpn 1 as 1893 and wpn 11 as 161 both should be 1893
#498 has wpn 1 as 1893 and wpn 11 as 183 both should be 1893
#285 has wpn 4 & 5 as 1994 and wpn 14 & 15 as 161 they should all be 1994
#339 has wpn 1 as 1893 and wpn 11 as 150 both should be 1893
#289 has wpn 1 as 1994 and wpn 11 as 161 both should be 1994
#290 has wpn 3, 4 & 5 as 1994 and wpn 13, 14 & 15 as 161 they should all be 1994

#499 has wpn 1 has 183 which is a Japanese MG wpn 11 and 12 are 1893 but
wpn 2 is a bomb and wpn 13 is a bomb. You will need to figure out
what you want.
#291 has wpn 1,3,4 and 5 as 1994 and wpn 11,13,14,15 as 161 all should be 1994
#174 has wpn 1,2,& 3 as 150 and wpn 11,12 & 13 as 1893 all should be 1893
#292 has wpn 1, 3, 4 & 5 as 1994 and wpn 11,13,14 & 15 as 161 all should be 1994
As a question shouldn't #161 have the same guns as 292? Australian

OK. Got everything fixed.

Here is the list:
1. Aircraft Slots 1859, 1860, 2248, and 2249 Deleted. Original ships assigned were changed and I missed this.
2. Royal Sovereign Walrus group assigned to KGV.
3. A6M2 upgrades to itself.
4. A6M2 Sen Baku upgrades to itself.
5. Chesepeake BC Air Group now just 2159 with six FP.
6. Oro Bay double slotted fixed: 987 deleted and 994 left.
7. Ki-61-Ib 10-43 and Ki-61-Ic 12-43 dates changed. Need to see when this happened to make sure I am correct.
8. CB Class now fixed with correct 36CM Main Guns.

Will send the revamped Files in a few minutes. Now dubbed Scen 50--Master Files 1.1

Well done and fine work everyone!

Nomad--These are issues found earlier and I never got them fixed. I'll hold sending the files and correct this FIRST before sending. GREAT!!!

All those 4EB issues are probably Big B's changes to make the 4EB much more dangerous to fighters. Am I correct Michael?


As to the China question, Michael lost half of his Mod installs earlier in the week and he lost all the China changes. He'll get back to that once we are done with catching stuff and testing. Some point later, we'll present a mod variant with a TOTALLY different China. Do you want 'normal' China or something WAY different? Should be a fun choice...

From Big B's mod's "Read me" notes.

quote:

Heavy Bombers: American Heavy Bombers (B-17, B-24, & B-29) equipped with power turrets have had those weapons boosted in accuracy rating (fully powered turrets, with reflector gun sights, are much more accurate than hand held machine-guns...And – this will help reflect the Mutual Support that American Heavy Bomber units had – with their unique tactical doctrine – the Bomber Box).


I went through all the American heavy bombers with Brian's mod to find which slots now have the "power turrets." They are now device 1994 versus stock having device 161. Device 161 has "accuracy" of 29 while the new power turret device, 1994, has accuracy increased to 44. Just about every slot will have 1994 by '44 except the "side" will remain as the traditional "waist gunner."

JFB may have some issues above the usual when facing mid to late war Allied 4e beasties.

Hi Michael - happy Tuesday to you!

As a long-standing JFB, I would like to file my official 4E complaint. Can you refer me to this mod's complaint department so I can fill out the proper paperwork?

Hey - I just wanted to thank all of you that are investing your time in this mod. I've kicked the tires a few times and I really enjoy the what-if history behind the mods.

Ya'll totally rock - thanks again.

Thank You Sir! I'll echo your sentiments on the 4EB.

Developments for today include splitting the Master File into the component files for Between the Storms Heavy (BTSH) and Between the Storms Lite (BTSL). The Heavy variant features four possible Yamato-Class and then the Fuji-Class Light Battle Cruisers (6 of them--CC). BTSL has the more conventional Owari-Class (4 of them with 9 16" rifles), 2 B-65-Class BC, and the Niitaka-Class CA (6 in class). These are the only differences in the Mods.

Comments on IJN Flattops:

- CV Renkaku is made available on Sep 2, 1943. It enters with the 12/43 refit. Should it be the 6/42 refit?
- CV Kasigi is made available on Jan 19, 1945. It enters with the 6/44 refit. Should it be the 1/45 refit?
- CVL Chitose-class refits 1874 & 1875 have the same date, 12/43. Is that correct?
- CVL Kurama is made availabe on Jan 11, 1945. It enters with the 4/44 refit. Should it be the 10/44 refit?

There are two Dutch P-40E aircraft defined. #155 and #162 They have the same stats, arrival date, etc.

**edit**

I think that #162 should be deleted.

French DD class Le Hardi starts with #854 available 12/41. It then upgrades to # 859 which is available 7/43
It then is supposed to upgrade to #885 which is available in 4/42 and has less AA and worse Radar. I think
the order should be switched 854 -> 885 -> 859

French DD class Le Hardi starts with #854 available 12/41. It then upgrades to # 859 which is available 7/43
It then is supposed to upgrade to #885 which is available in 4/42 and has less AA and worse Radar. I think
the order should be switched 854 -> 885 -> 859


I would never have caught that!

Damn...Kitakami...I need a broom to clean all that up. THANKS!

Have time tonight to work on this so I plan to go thru everything mentioned above.

Who has ANY sort of skills on adjusting and adding plane art to the folder? It has always alluded me but I've been told it is easier now...

Need AFB to look at.....

Royal Navy and the need for more FP groups.

French and Dutch Navy having some mid to late war possible upgrades.

Dutch Air Force - If you withdraw them, they come back at Aden and can be useful. Realistically, what number of mid to late war versions could they upgrade to?? P-40K?? Need to have something to shoot down deep strikes from the Liz. Op losses on the PBY and recon planes make them useless after mid-43. What numbers would you propose?

BIG ??? - John tweaked the pilot experience levels for 43 to end for Allies up. Our thinking was the Allies should be overwhelming by late 44 to end in the air when it comes to rookie pilots coming out. Does the AI just pick pilots at random or pick those from 42 with lower experience before newer and better pilots from 44/45 when filling out existing groups? American pilot pools can be deep by 44/45.

Way OT - I only got to play with the Soviet Army for about 6 weeks in just finished PBEM, but that army is just plain nasty!!

The Allied pilot experience levels look fine. 1943 pilots do not graduate until 1944.
With Training Units on the map, the starting experience is not that important. They can
train 3 x size pilots at one time and they pump out pilots very quickly. I use them in my
version of the Long Road to Toyko scenario and they are great.

I have seen the experience of pilots in the rookie pool improve as a game goes on. But it happens slowly and usually with the brits or aussie pools. Just a little with the US pools. Like from 30 to 40 and that's it....GP

Addons; Oak Harbor, Tillamook and Eureka Base forces. Air Patrol units always show up but no base force. About the same size as the Astoria Base force I guess. Coosbay as well....GP

PM me your email address!

You guys are finding stuff I would NEVER, EVER have looked at. Cannot keep up at the moment but hope to get everything--to a certain point--cleaned up and then send updated files out.
