Description
Written on 27/12/2017

This mod has been under development on and off for six months. Thought it isn't as complete as I would have liked, I am starting to grow tired of working on this. Thus, I am releasing it in it's current state.
REQUIRES RSRDC

This mod's original goal was to create a more accurate representation of the main japanese naval harbours. Alongside those, it also adds new harbours on the US Western coast and in the Indian Ocean, as well as some modifications to several existing harbours. All new harbours will have vessels occupying them. I haven't added harbour defenses to any of them, though.

I have also added two new campaign files: one represents the activities of the Imperial Japanese Navy during the final year of the war; the other models the minefields deployed during Operation Famine, a large scale mining operation beginning on 26th March, 1945.

In game, you will find the major japanese warships in their historical mooring spots. Some will be changing spots depending on the date. Only the major changes are modeled. I have also filled the new harbours with late war versions of existing ships.
The minefields will progressivly thicken as time goes on. They will prevent you from reaching the main harbours and gaining easy tonnage. The japanese will be cleaing out lanes for ships to traverse. You can find and navigate them, but don't forget the way out when you anger neighbouring destroyers!

Installation:
- Extract and place the mod into your MODS folder (make sure that the folder has "data" when it is opened)
- Load it up with JSMGE

The mod was built on Trigger Maru, with Run Silent, Run Deep Campaign. It should work on all versions of RSRDC, although I've only tested it with TMO and RFB.

Versions:
- 29/12/2017: 1.0 original release
- 31/12/2017: 1.1 release (small fixes on dates and other mistakes, moves ships behind Singapore sea wall, adds basic British harbour traffic to Singapore)
- 04/01/2018: 1.11 release (fixes Batavia harbour, removes superimposing subs at Penang)
- 21/01/2018: 1.2 release (modified Hong Kong, Balikpapan, Port Moresby, added Cebu, new harbour traffic at Vancouver, new harbour defenses at Hong Kong, Balikpapan)
- 13/02/2017: 1.21 release (fixed positionning of US harbours, adjusted harbour traffic, fixed Ominato harbour issues, also removed unimportant elements of Singapore)
- 23/04/2018: 1.23 release (new harbours, new ship, rebuilt Maizuru, modifed Hong Kong, added harbour defenses on West Coast, historical Manilla minefields, several new minefields -> uncertain with historical accuracy, changed map priorities, and several other things)

More harbour traffic

- New ship : target ship Yakaze
- New coastal defenses around the US West Coast and a few japanese harbours
- New minefields protecting several harbours, including historical defenses for Manilla, Balikpapan,
San Francisco and Kowloon.
- Historical late war mooring spots for Ise, Haruna, Yamato, Junyo, Kasagi, Aoba, Takao, Kitakami, and
many others...
- Operation Famine minefields around Japan and Singapore

Notes:
- I haven't been able to replicate Yokosuka, since the terrain upon which the harbour is built is modeled after the modern version. Thus, I have decided to make today's version, with some liberties.
- Except Seattle, San Pedro and Vancouver, the new american harbours have been built without regards for historical accuracy.
- Some buildings in Nagoya are in the water. I'm letting it be for now, as they are only visible in a overhead view, and I wanted to get this version out before I tired out.
- The island next to which battleship Hyuga was moored against doesn't exist ingame. As such it is currently floating SW of it's historical position.
-The large number of mines may result in lag

Kind regards,
Faith
