JEcon 101 setup pre-final Doc

Post by n01487477 »

Hi guys -
I'm putting together a document to help new players get to grips with the Japanese economic system. I think some of it is very verbose and technical. Probably a huge turn off, which is not what I wanted.

Maybe some of it needs culling or rewriting. Anyway, it isn't final yet. And when it is, I hope that the checklist idea that I've just started will be all that most need to get something started. The rest of it could be read at one's pleasure for understanding.
Doc
https://www.dropbox.com/s/sb4koy01abdrb ... t.doc?dl=0
Pdf
https://www.dropbox.com/s/q20xhgtodwb0k ... t.pdf?dl=0

Comments and suggestions welcome. Corrections too. I know we all do things slightly differently. Please take this in the spirit that I offer it. A guide for beginners. (Even if it needs to have a re-write to become one[;)])

Regards,

[edit] Noted that the pic's were a bit bad so re-did them. The Pdf looks better than the doc version.
[edit] Just updated the doc a bit... will continue to update ...
[update] Save file - completed orders up till the airframe sequence

Hey Damian,

I like what you've got going so far - it's a very good start. When you are talking about convoys I think you might want to put in a paragraph or two regarding suplies & spoilage.

Maybe another paragraph regarding supplies needed for troops (movment & combat) and Air HQ needs for torpedoes?

I liked your info regarding fuel mileage. I've never considered that before. I was more interested in making sure I had the right convoy size for the job and I was trying to keep most of the convoys using a similar endurance and speed.

TTFN,

Mike

OK - yeah should have done. Thx.

Didn't want to get too much into that - but I think it is worth mentioning.

Update both the doc and pdf - as I felt I got the Convoy system a little too balanced & short to begin with.Made a mistake with the Shanghai-Sasebo run and fuel measurements were a little off. This is all testing for a Tracker cargo screenie. Anyway, I really wanted to haul out some Res, not just maintain levels ...
Cheers,

Good work Damian.  I'll be including this in my list of material to get my head around.

Very nice work Damian. Thanks!

The focus on fuel in resource convoys makes too much sense and is an avenue that I haven't given much consideration to better conserve fuel.

Thanks for putting this together, Damien.  Maybe this will be the boost I need to start looking at the world from the Dark Side.  [:)]

Hi, Damien!

I am playing Babes v08 C ("The C version also includes a modified ship Class file (wpcxxx.dat) that substantially reduces the cargo capacities of ships"). Thus just a gut feeling that I should build as many ships as possible. Would you have any thoughts on how much I should expand my MSYards to cover the cost of a full build plan?

I will do the homework, and read the tracker shipbuilding documentation, to get a better understanding of how it all works.

Any thoughts are very much appreciated.

Mac

Assuming production is the same as stock (I suspect it's different) you would be good with what you have but don't accelerate anything using merchant points. Tracker shows you a nice graph that will tell you if you have enough points to cover all the ships.

Don't know if this will help you or not Mac, but the merchie cargo caps of Babes C were reduced by a uniform 33% (i.e., a 6000 goes to 4000, a 3000 goes to 2000, etc...). Maybe Tracker captures this but if not, it's just a mental 2/3 kinda thing.
