    In Service of the Emperor- Japan 1936(SMEP/DAIM/Cold War AAR

    Hello I'm beginning a 1936 AAR as the Empire of Japan

    the settings are as follows
    Difficulty:normal
    Agressiveness:normal
    Game Setup: Armageddon 1.3 Beta 2 SMEP/DAIM/Cold war tech tree (RWYO)
    Objective: Survive/Take over the world...

    Hopefully this AAR will bring excitement... there will be loads of pictures and mostly gameplay and perhaps a little Writing background as basis... Anyways Enjoy!

    First things first... I move my Sliders 1 Central planning and i change a few ministers...

    Then i switch over to production and decide not to scrap the two ships in production as One is a CV that is useful and the other is a destroyer that will probably be used for ASW later when my Level IV ships come off the build que for now Though I focus on getting rid of the dissent.


    Research

    obviously i'm focusing on improving my Industrial and Infantry technology also I see the possibility of using Armour if i have the spare IC to do so maybe in 1942-43... But its low priority pretty much the only thing i can research early without a penalty


    Strategy
    For starters I redeploy all my forces In Manchukuo to Dailian to be picked up to be sent home deleting any brigades except Military Police All homeland Divisions i redeploy to Tokyo... All of my airforce to Akita and all of my navy to Tokyo. I send the first Completed 3 division army to the border with shanxi in tangshan. I intend to pull off all my island garrisons... To use as Garrisons for Land conquered during the game. Now i'm ready to start the game!

    Janurary 2nd 1936

    Lt. Tojo a tank buster takes command of the first Tactical bombing squadron!
    While Yamashita takes over Command of Interceptors! Since we have a severe shortage of Energy and Metal and rares I approach the soviet union with this deal!

    and they Accept... but i'm still short Energy and Money so i approach the USA with this deal.

    They also accept!
    this gives me a nice surplus of resources coming in

    A few days later i begin reorganization of the IJN the most Important part of a japanese players game I place the Akagi and the Kaga with my two light carriers and my 2 Level IV Light crusiurs... I give command to this first Carrier task force to Admiral Yammamoto the next assignment is given to Nagano who leads the first SAG task force, then Koga in command of 2nd SAG force, Fukudome in command of 3rd SAG force and Ozawa in command of 4th SAG force... My SAG force will Blockade china from receiving any resources! Hopefully Before my attack against the west all my fleets will have received Better screens and Light carriers! That concludes the first update... enjoy!

    On feburary 7th 1936... Dissent finally plummits to 0 and Upgrades begin on the severely Outdated Japanese forces. A deal was made with the soviets in late janurary to Sort out our Shortage of Oil... This deal was very good for the people of Japan! Blueprints for technology have been traded to our puppet of Manchukuo in order for them to modernize their forces!

    On feburary 26th 1936 Kodoha officers attempt to storm the Imperial palace they are Crushed... My reasoning for this is I don't want to lose Gotaro and My Central planning will be shifted full on it own via a Smep event So this is my Choice...

    This leaves me with 1 dissent which i focus on paying off!

    On march 6th 1936 Order is firmly restored and we go back reinforcing and refiting our Glorius army navy and airforce with new Weapons and armaments!

    We received word from the german ambassador that the Rhineland has been reoccupied this should Make the world turn a deaf ear to our Campaign in planning in China

    On march 10th i get an event to change my head of government I don't because it would mess up my cabinet setup so i take 3 Dissent!

    On march 28th 1936 Italy annexes Ethopia!

    My destroyer is finished and assigned to Ozawas Fleet! in April!

    April 8th 1936 all dissent is payed down and upgrades begin again!

    It looks pretty cool.

    ps you might want to crop the pic on your 2nd update
    What program do i use for cropping Photoshop? I think the Shanxi flag is from the cold war tech tree mod... There are some other awesome flags as well... for instance the Other Chinese warlords have great flags as well like yuunan!

    Post your ideas strategies anything You'd like... There will be more posts in this tonight or Tomorrow!

    Hmmm i took the second option and "listened to their demands" in the 2-26 incident. It just seemed it gave me some really nice benefits on the sliders and the minister loss wasn't THAT bad.

    China's going to be an imperial pain in the butt but you'll get it eventually

    Oh i usually go with Listen to their demands but in SMEP the event chain is different/better with Crushing the Coup... I'm testing that right now! China will be a walk in the park... I'm testing a new buildup strategy in this game... Thanks for your comment!

    I am using GIMP, and I am having a hard time convincing myself to go back to Photoshop. Mostly because it's free, and handles most of basic and medium graphics chores relatively easier. Just Google GIMP.

    It takes a little while to figure out all the doo-dads and is not as user friendly as photoshop, but its fast once you start to get to know it.

    Your AAR reminds me, must build convoys.

    Japan v. China is also one of the best 1 v 1 unofficial battle scenarios.

    I'll check it out! but i'm glad i reminded you to build convoys... Japan is screwed without them! as is the USA, and UK! Which is why Submarines are so dangerous if left not countered... and a reason why i try to always build them even if it is to find out where the enemy fleet is !

    DAIM USERS SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS
    1) Install DAIM last (after this mod)
    2) Choose one of these two options
    Option A: This gives you the Cold War events package
    change the line
    include = "db\events.txt"
    to read
    include = "db\events2.txt"
    in these files:
    scenarios\1936.eug
    scenarios\1938.eug
    scenarios\1939.eug
    (These files are installed by DAIM)

    here is your Answer... just replace that one line and run the regular road to war scenario everything will work fine... Had to cancel this AAR cause Smep/DAIM/Cold War is very buggy.

    Did that and it doesn't work, what's option B?
    Can i install daim without the .eug files?
