Nick69 -> The Next War (12/12/2007 2:04:33 PM)

Hi everyone, this is a first screenshot of a scenario in the work.
It is a scenario WWIII based on "the next war" of SPI.
Below are the SF-Type for west german.
Each sub-unit represents a company with its integrated transports.
The Map uses my graphic mod, somewhat altered ...
To be continued ...

marcusm -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 3:09:11 PM)

Looks very promising.




Erik Rutins -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 3:16:38 PM)

Holy cow Nick, that's gorgeous - unit pics and map both! I have the boardgame, can't wait to try this scenario!!




BULLDOGINTHEUK -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 3:23:26 PM)

This looks amazing. Nice one.

Just a thought. Would it be possible to increase the height of the map as I can see that Ships would have trouble getting from East/West. Just thinking from a gameplay point of view as have never played the original that you are trying to emulate.

Keep up the good work [:D]





Barthheart -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 3:36:46 PM)

WOW! Can't wait![&o]




Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 4:08:54 PM)

Sorry, but this is something that will take a long time, especially since I have a lot of projects underway, and that everything must be done ....




Barthheart -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 4:19:50 PM)

That's OK. Take your time. I've got three projects on the go now so I know what you mean.....




Captain Cruft -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 4:33:04 PM)

Great stuff!




Vic -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 5:29:18 PM)

holy crap!
i am flabergasted.

ps: If you need any special feature or option added to make your scenario work better i could seriously look into it.




Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 5:33:55 PM)

Thanks Vic, I am not there yet, but some adjustments will certainly be necessary for the helicopters, on the other hand, it would be really interesting to have a city label visible on map, and it is possible to create borders between countries?




Vic -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 5:40:59 PM)

Hi nick,

no hurry! :)

I'll look into the helicopter thing.

Labels visible on map will be possible from v1.1 christmas patch onwards.

Country borders could already be done by adding a rivertype with no modifiers.

I am following your work with anticipation.

kind regards,
Vic




Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/12/2007 5:47:03 PM)

thanks ...
Another thing that I thought it would be really interesting to have different transitions depending on the terrain, for example, deep water: I would need a transition to shallow water and another transition for costal hex ...




ShadowB -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 12:15:56 AM)

Outstanding, Nick! Best of luck with the scenario! [sm=happy0065.gif]




marcusm -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 12:18:10 AM)

After this you'll be ready for the Scorched Earth modules ;).

TPM -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 12:22:12 AM)

That looks freaking awesome! Great job...can't wait to play it!




Bombur -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 2:04:47 AM)

Maybe it would be possible, in a future patch, to add a feature to an air unit defining if it is anhelicopter (and thus allowing him to land anywhere)???

I think you can easily define 3 "sea" terrain types with various shades of blue to represent them and place them as you want to get the wanted map effect.

Hey Erik I was wondering is it possible to use other peoples map tiles/hexes and unit icons in a "random generated scenario"? This guy has great graphics (much better than the vanilla version) and if I can use his maps and unit icons I might be tempted to buy this one. So???




marcusm -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 5:30:45 PM)

Works fine here. I have tried both these and Blitzkrieg, either works fine.

Looks quite good. Will look even better when the text overlays comes in 1.1.

What I really would like to see, is GFK.s tiles for AT. He is the master of making map graphics. Matrixgames should employ him ;).

ravinhood -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 5:34:05 PM)

So you used these graphics in AT for a random scenario setup Marcusm?

Lol I was thinking the same thing about Nick here and fire Marc hahaha (ducking from Marc). ;)




Panta -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 5:36:55 PM)

Excellent work, I am looking forward to see it completed, Cold War scenarios are some of my favorites!
It is something commendable the flexibility of the AT engine as well.
cheers,
Panta




marcusm -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 5:40:43 PM)

I think Marc did the Flashpoint Germany maps, they look great from screens? Maybe they should expand so they finish more games instead(yep still waiting for Battlefields) ;).

Anyway, not everyone can be good at everything. GFK and Nick here obviously have the aestethics nailed ;).

Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 7:09:32 PM)

Thank you all for your compliments
For those who are interested, here's the address of my website where you can see screenshots of other ongoing projects ...
The site will be updated shortly...

Barthheart -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 7:15:29 PM)

Wow Nick! You've got some impressive stuff there.

I noticed you are using something called "Map Editor". Is that a stand alone program, commercial or self-built, or part of some other software?




mlc82 -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 7:42:07 PM)

That's really great work!




Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 9:18:55 PM)

Thank you very much,
In fact this map editor is part of the game that I had under way, but is somewhat abandoned after a crash on my hard drive ... I have lost all my working files....But I will continue probably later this job, when I have more time to do......




marcusm -> RE: The Next War (12/13/2007 10:49:36 PM)

You mean that you developed that powerful looking editor? Wow.
You should consider selling it via MG ;).

Btw, best tip against HD-crashes, online storage. Best safe guard I know.

marcus




Nick69 -> RE: The Next War (12/14/2007 12:00:19 AM)

Yes, this is part of a series of tools that I was in the process of developing ... I have Yet the game engine, but most of the graphics was lost...., a lot of work to redo everything ... but it's not lost, it enabled me to gain a lot of experience in graphic programming[:)]....
