For me the posted scenario is a prototype (especially about the unit stats) that presents a scenario with working scenario mechanisms, created in the first period of Covid 19, that El Justo never had the time to work on any longer.
El Justo posted spreadsheets about the SOP unit stats (and the much better AoI unit stats) here: https://forums.civfanatics.com/resources/spreadsheets.22659/
As Civinator has stated, the current Storm Over the Pacific scenario is not a finished version, but a work in progress. As El Justo has not been around since July of 2020, we have started work on it to get it into a more finished form.Unfortunately I don´t have any save files about games with that scenario and I have never played that scenario to the end, as I always had the impression, that this is a very early version, showing that this scenario is running, but a version with corrected stats (and may be the corrected settings to stop the massive land-torpedoing by submarines) has to follow.
Following is a list of Victory Points based on the V.1 of the biq file. It has 39 locations, not 37 as stated by El Justo. The two additional locations belong to Japan. If anyone has any differing information, please post it.
India: Imphal, Ledo
Japan: Myitkyina, Katha, Lashio, Singapore, Hong Kong, Manila, Taipei, Okinawa, Palau, Hollandia, Aitape, Lae, Guam, Saipan, Iwo Jima, Truk, Tarawa, Kwajalein, Wake Island, Eniwetok, Kavieng, Rabual, Bouganville, Tulagi, New Georgia, Guadalcanal
China: Kumming, Changquing,
Australia: Daru, Port Moresby,
United States: Noumea, Espiritu Santo, US Samoa, Midway Island, Pearl Harbor
New Zealand: Suva, Avarua
I will work on putting together a flow chart for how the various buildings interact, and also working on cleaning up the combat values of the units. The following is a sample of problems with ship combat values.
US Fletcher-class destroyer: Attack 22, Defense 14, +1 hit point, Bombard 18, rate of fire 3, Air Defense 2
The Fletcher-class destroyer mounted five 5"/38 caliber dual-purpose guns, a variety of automatic anti-aircraft weapons, and ten 21" torpedo tubes in two quintuple mounts.
US Brooklyn-class light cruiser: Attack 16, Defense 12, +1 hit point, Bombard 12, rate of fire 2, Air Defense 2, no torpedo tubes
The Brooklyn-class light cruiser mounted fifteen 6"/47 caliber single-purpose guns, eight 5"/25 caliber anti-aircraft guns, and a variety of automatic anti-aircraft weapons.
The Fletchers had a displacement of 2100 tons, with very light armor. The Brooklyns had a displacement of 9700 tons and carried a considerable amount of armor. The Fletchers have a higher combat value than virtually all pre-war heavy cruiser. I have no idea as to where the individual who did the ship values came up with them. This is quite bluntly, ridiculous, and this is just one of many examples.
If you want information on specific U.S. Navy ships, I would strongly recommend that you check the Dictionary of American Naval Fighting Ships, which can be found here: https://www.history.navy.mil/content/history/nhhc/research/histories/ship-histories/danfs.html
