hm, the WitP is a HUGE game...
for me only the whole campagin is really interesting, but maybe more starts of it... and some alternate history campagins, too (like in UV)
The whole production issue is disapointing, cause of its complexity (with dayly/monthly things mixed up) and the kind of user friendlyness of it (why can´t i go to the next base with the Production screen on ? and similar things)
But, if you want to do it better as the historical guys, you have "the" pac war game... everything else to do it better could be only in grafic or online realtime gaming of it...
To learn the game, i made a 42er campagin, with ultimate ressources and HUGE stockpiles for the japanese, also make some (many) ships come into action much earlier for both sides and learn how it works. Cause everybody should know that we now are beta-2 testers. Such complex game need patches, and to make it stable, it need a restart. So everything we do now, is learning.
In a few months we could start seriously ( my opinion).
Also, playing both sides is good to learn some lessons you can´t know before... (like asw and experience curves, etc...)
esp. the production is still irritating for me and i suggest that an "if you enlarge this you need more of that"-warning should be enabled.... at last at the general information screens (like "Warning, you produce too much xy, so everything else will be NOT produced!)
Also, i think the chance to enlarge the allied production should be given.... if i want more bombers and do not care about recce, why not ? I think the allied side, too should have the chance to speed up the ship production.
But anyway, WitP could also be played half computerizised, even if auto convoi is looking strange for me.... so i NEED micromanagement.
The land war too should be optimized (a frontline should be IN the game, so units can not run around with no problems...
but, WitP IS Pac War in 2004-style. It could be in parts better, customerfriendly, but hell ! we want it, we could make suggests and we have a few years of gameplay !
have fun with it !
Don't tickle yourself with some moralist crap thinking we have some sort of obligation to help these people. We're there for our self-interest, and anything we do to be 'nice' should be considered a courtesy dweebespit
