Alex Fiedler -> Conquest of the Aegean Update (10/11/2006 8:23:33 AM)

Bayonets and bugs!

Matrix Games and Panther Games (www.panthergames.com) are pleased to announce the release of the first Conquest of the Aegean update. In addition to quashing a few bugs, this update also upgrades several key components of the AI, creating a more aggressive enemy to challenge players.

Panther Games’ award winning Airborne Assault series continues with Conquest of the Aegean as Hitler’s blitzkrieg descends on Greece and Crete. A plethora of panzergrenadiers and paratroopers pummel the precariously perched protectors of the Panhellenic peoples.

Tweaks to the AI include a new aggressiveness that triggers the enemy’s attacks sooner and more frequently, and continues them longer. Coupled with a new prioritization for enemy objectives, these changes produce an even more formidable opponent to test a player’s tactical skill.

Modifications are not limited to enemy ruthlessness, however. Players can now execute attacks with subordinate headquarters with better control and dispersion of units. Junior commands ensure that a player’s attack initiates with no gaps in the line, though enemy fire can still cause units to retreat and gaps to appear.

Armored unit performance is also updated, to more accurately replicate the way such forces were employed during the Second World War. Standoff ranges are employed for frequently during attacks and movements, allowing armored forces to engage enemy infantry before rushing in too close and allowing flank shots with short-range weapons.

In Conquest of the Aegean, players get to take on the role of either the Allied or German commanders and pit their wits against either a computer controlled opponent or a human opponent via LAN or the internet.

Play as the Allies in a desperate fight to maintain a foothold on the southern flank of Europe using the mountainous Greek terrain to achieve concealment and surprise. Or fight as the Axis, driving hard achieve a quick victory with minimal losses.

Don't tell me you're drinking this : http://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/3_Monts_(bi%C3%A8re)

Love the stuff myself [;)]

Incidently I just found CyberStratége 4 in my mailbox - thanks very much - The postal services did an amazing job : it only took 6 days for a mere 1000 km ... I can do that by bike.

I'll read it tonight and try to post some juicy quotes tomorrow

Greetz,

HansBolter -> RE: Conquest of the Aegean Update (10/12/2006 6:33:36 PM)

Hey Rooster, I just checked out the link in your sig and can't wait to try some of those scenarios.

Isn't the quote at the bottom of the page actually from the sequal Force Ten from Navarrone, quoting Robert Shaw as Mallory and Edward Fox as Corporal Miller?




Rooster -> RE: Conquest of the Aegean Update (10/12/2006 7:41:48 PM)

Hi Hans - You can get the scenario over at El Savior's Airborne Depot website.  Check the COTA website for a link.

The quote is actually from a the book of military anecdotes.  True story, maybe, about about a couple of welch fusiliers in WWI who killed a sargent and then got the firing squad.  I'll try to post it later.
